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.

Kristen and Michael Mt. Hood SkiBowl Wedding by Powers Photography

Peter Chee with Powers Photography did a phenomenal job capturing the wedding photos. Dark color palettes are some of my favorites to work with. However, they tend to be difficult to properly photograph to get the true sense of color and dimension.

Bridal bouquet featured some of my favorite dark blooms, including: dahlias, roses, cymbidium orchids, scabiosa, peonies, ranunculus, carnations and plenty and texture.

Kristen and Michael were truly an adventurous couple and choose to get married at the top of Mt. Hood at Mt. Hood Skibowl.

Can you imagine taking a ski lift and having your first look with a mountain in the background?

Yep! That’s exactly what they did.

Savana and Joe's Columbia River Gorge Elopement

Savana and Joe came here from Denver to get eloped in Oregon. Who can really resist the beauty of the Columbia River Gorge and Multnomah Falls?

Savana happens to be a professional model and photographer back home, so she had a very specific style in mind. What can I say? I love a daring bride who is not afraid to use a dark color palette and carry an overflowing cascade style bouquet.

I was honored to work with Joe and Savana on their special day. The couple brought some of their favorite vendors from Denver.

What Savana had to say on her Yelp Review:

"Oh my goodness, words can't even describe how happy I was with my bouquet and flower crown. My husband and I eloped to Oregon from Denver and I was freaking out about not being able to meet with a florist in person since I had a very specific idea in mind for my bouquet. But after emailing a bit with Lora I knew that she was the perfect florist for me. She listened to my ideas and asked so many questions, she made me feel certain I would be getting what I envisioned. What she created for me was even more perfect than what I had imagined!!! I was so shocked and happy when I saw the finished product.
Everyone who sees pictures from our special day comments on how beautiful my flowers are and I owe it all to Lora. She is so creative and so very talented at what she does! I'm so glad I went with her on one of the most important days of my life. Thank you so much Sophisticated Floral, you really did make me the happiest bride!! "
