fall wedding

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 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.

Portland Fine Art Bridal Boudoir- Editorial with Spotted Still Photography

I want to take a moment to brag on Jen with Spotted Stills Photography. She takes the bridal boudoir sessions to the next level! I am loving the clean, crisp and fine art approach to her photography.

Really enjoyed incorporating the early fall colors and textures into the flowers. Bridal Bouquet featured garden roses, ranunculus, fresh hops vine, coxcomb, fall leaves, larkspur, rose hips, brown lisianthus {one of my personal all time favorite blooms}, dry grasses and pieris.

I have a prediction that this muted butter yellow, blush, brown, peach color palette will be a popular choice for fellow brides.

It does not get any more elegant and timeless than this.

Fall Floral Installation Shoot with Spotted Stills Photography

Spotted Stills Photography once again blew me away with this stunning fall session.

This vertical floral installation is gaining popularity with wedding clients. I personally love creating this asymmetrical arbor design to mark the altar area. It’s pretty versatile and there are so many fun ways to customize this design to fit your style and budget.

I am really enjoying the cooler weather and all the amazing colors and textures of fall. The bouquet is chock full of some of my favorite fall colored blooms: Dahlia, spray roses, mini cymbidium orchids, dry grasses, ferns, garden roses, nandina, eryngium and coxcomb and more.

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.

Laurence + Ranjit {A Modern Indian Wedding at The Resort at The Mountain}

I loved creating the flowers for Laurence and Ranjit's fall wedding at The Resort at the Mountain in Welches, Oregon.

The bright colorful fall blooms included dahlia, zinnia, roses, coxcomb, ranunculus and lots of lush foliage. The bright colors, gold lanterns and vessels were a nod to the Indian heritage.

I absolutely loved designing the "henna" style swirl rose petal aisle design featuring thousands of rose petals in coral, burgundy, yellow and orange.

The asymmetrical style floral arbor was a perfect statement piece, and a great way to frame the bride and groom during the ceremony.

The fabulous dessert table and cake was created bu Lux Sucre. The detailing on the cake was just amazing.

Thank you Fritz for catching me in action while designing the ceremony flowers.

Klara + David -East Fork Country Estate-Fall wedding in Oregon

This beautiful October wedding took place at East Fork Country Estate

Klara chose a fall color palette which included marsala, burgundy red, orange, bronze and gold. The overall floral look was lush, elegant and full of texture and locally grown blooms

Klara's bouquet was lush and full of all types of goodies: garden roses, dahlias, scabiosa, cox comb, parrot tulips, rose hips, eucalyptus, jasmine vine, pincushion protea, agonis, nandina, amaranthus. Its a great time of year here in the Pacific NW for locally grown flowers -such a bounty. I was happy to use mostly locally grown flowers for this stunning fall wedding. 

Here are some photos I took.

Modern wrist corsages for weddings and special occasions

Forget about the old high school wrist corsages full of bling, tulle and spray paint. There are countless options when it comes to beautiful and modern wrist corsages.

I really enjoy designing wrist corsages; they are tiny little master pieces. Very intricate, detailed and full of unexpected textures. The sky is the limit when it comes to flowers to wear.
