Sarah + Cameron's Portland Oregon Wedding at The Riverview Restaurant

I absolutely loved the color palette for Sarah and Cameron’s wedding. Blush, burgundy and navy with gold accents makes for a very beautiful combination.

Riverview Restaurant was a perfect backdrop for their wedding day.

Sarah’s bouquet was chock full of beautiful summer blooms -including Cafe au lait dahlias, burgundy dahlias, scabiosa, chocolate cosmos, garden spray roses, garden roses, nine bark, geranium and more.

Mixing dark and light blooms together can be a difficult task. You don’t want to have a polka dot effect. It takes practice to blend the contrasting tones together seamlessly -basically like painting.

I cannot say enough about our local Oregon flower farmers who grow all the amazing floral varieties for us to work with. Almost every single bloom used here was American grown. We love supporting #Americangrownflowers

Portland Spring Couples Shoot with Spotted Stills Photography

Amy and Ryan looked amazing on their spring couples shoot with Spotted Stills Photography.

Amy happens to be a fellow photographer with Rosencrown Photography

I absolutely loved created this ranunculus floral crown. Although I design a lot of floral crowns {aka head wreath, halo} this one tops the list of my all time favorites. Luxurious Italian Ranunculus, roses, jasmine vine and texture in blush, white and green compliments this dusty mauve dress very well.

Portland Oregon Wedding at Abernethy Center Abigail's Garden - Lidia + Pascal

Getting married in early October is always a weather gamble here in Oregon. But the rainy weather did not hold those love birds back.

Thankfully we were able to adjust our design plans and set up the arbor inside the tent versus using the gazebo.
Beautiful Blush and Gray tones were threaded all throughout the decor and attire.

Bridal bouquet consisted of Cafe au lait dahlias, garden roses, calla lilies {Bride and Groom Favorite}, blushing bride protea, lisianthus and accented with three types of eucalyptus and ruscus foliage.

Sadly rain takes away the dahlias so this was the last chance we had to design with those blush beauties in 2018.
Congratulations Lidia and Pascal! I wish you all the best in your married life and your beautiful blended family.

Wedding floral design trends. Modern fine art bridal editorial shoot

Mid Century Modern is a big trend at the moment. We see it everywhere; from furniture to fashion to interior design. Wedding decor and design always changes and evolves with the newest trends.

Who loves this look of dry floral, pampas grass, bleached foliage and all things minimalist and modern?

It’s always fun to experiment with new things and make them more elegant and stylish to fit my Sophisticated design aesthetic.

Bridal bouquet consisted of delicate spring flowers including Ranunculus, Garden roses, butterfly Ranunculus, Hyacinths, Orchids, bleached and dried Bunny tails, Ruscus and skeleton leaves.

Although dry flowers have their own set of challenges; being more delicate, fragile and not to mention messy. The overall look is definitely effortless, artistic and impactful.

Light and airy suspended floral installations are always fun to create. It provides a wonderful focal area in any space.

Thank you Spotted Stills for blowing me away with those images.

Trend Alert: Floral Hoop wreath bouquet-non traditional alternative

Boho trend continues on into decor and weddings are no exception. I love the more soft and elegant side of boho.

I created this floral hoop wreath bouquet to showcase a fun yet elegant alternative to a traditional bouquet. This past summer we had the opportunity to create several more hoop style bouquets for both bridesmaids as well as flower girls.

Many thanks to Whitney for being such a wonderful hair and make up artist as well as model. Whitney is the owner of Make up by Whit here is Portland. If you are looking for hair and make up services -look no further. I have had the opportunity to work with her on many occasions.

Creative Bridal Editorial shoot at The Lightroom PDX

Sometimes as artists, creatives and designers we get inspired to create just for the sake of creating.

Creativity strikes at any given time. I was inspired to use the beautiful, fragrant and generally hard to get Stephanotis vine {that's the little white blooms that look like stars}.

I paired the vines with white roses, ranunculus and delicate blooming pieris. Each season brings about a bounty of new flowers that are only available that time of year.

This floral garland /shawl could be a fun alternative to a traditional bridal bouquet, something that is used for bridesmaids, or another shoot altogether such as maternity or a boudoir. The possibilities are endless.

Thank you Spotted Stills for once again capturing such gorgeous images.

Taylor and Kevin's Oregon Coast Intimate Wedding/Elopement

Taylor and Kevin came here from Oklahoma to get married at the Oregon Coast. This was a special location to both of them, since this is where they got engaged.

Taylor wanted a lush, organic, free form bridal bouquet featuring white flowers and lots of foliage and textures.

I created her bouquet to include peonies, spray roses, ferns, seeded eucalyptus, blushing bride protea, lysimachia, olive branches, ruscus, camelia foliage, calycina and oregon grown blackberries for that added texture.

What Taylor had to say:

"Lora is incredible. I could not have dreamed of more beautiful flowers to make my wedding day feel so incredibly magical. I had a destination wedding on the Oregon coast, and many of my details about where I needed the flowers and what time I needed them changed several times throughout the planning process. Lora was always so quick to respond and to accommodate whatever changes I needed to make. She was so helpful, so sweet, and seriously could not be more talented. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone! "

Bridal Editorial Shoot with Spotted:Stills Photography- Portland, Oregon

Where do I begin? This was a beautiful collaboration between several amazing wedding professionals in the Portland area.

I cannot get over how perfect this wedding gown is from Brides for a Cause. Did you see those gorgeous feather details on the bodice? Absolutely exquisite and worked perfect with the all white bridal bouquet I created with all locally grown {Oregon Grown/American Grown} flowers. Including white lilac and deutzia from Glenwood Farms, Peterkort freesia and blooming spirea.

I love designing lightweight, yet lush and full bouquets that look loaded but are practical and elegant for the bride to carry on her wedding day.

Spotted Stills also created this gorgeous video clip.

Lacey + David {Bohemian Portland Backyard Wedding}

Lacey was the sweetest and most laid back bride ever. The overall wedding was very casual and understated. She wanted a bouquet of wildflowers and a dainty floral crown to match.

I really enjoyed designing flowers for Lacey and David's wedding at their Portland home. 

Bridal bouquet consisted of all locally grown/American grown flowers including: Dahlias, nigella blooms and pods, seeded eucalyptus, craspedia, fewer few daisies, olive branch, scabiosa, gooseneck, thistle, snapdragon, yarrow and queen annes lace.
