2019 Pantone Color of the Year -Living Coral

Pantone announces “Living Coral” as their 2019 Color of the Year and I cannot more excited.

I do not shy away from this color. I find that shades of coral, peach and orange work so well with various color palettes. From blush tones to bold colors, it works well paired with blues, lavenders, purples, yellows or in a monochromatic designs featured in this blog.

I love that coral colors is readily available in spring, summer and fall. Some of my favorite coral blooms include: Coral Charm Peonies, regular, spray and garden roses, ranunculus, hypericum berries, tulips, zinnias, coxcomb, dahlias and more.

This gorgeous bridal session was photographed by Spotted Stills Photography. Tania looked absolutely elegant and flawless after Whitney was done pampering her. 

The bold coral charm peonies in Tania’s bouquet, absolutely popped against her gown.

While the hair flowers were more muted with blush pink/peach tones and foliage, looking quite elegant on her classic hair updo. 

Bridal bouquet included coral charm peonies, roses, blueberries, scented geranium, huckleberry, seeded and willow eucalyptus.

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! "

Jaydeep + Priya Wedding proposal at Lan Su Gardens, Portland Chinese Gardens

Jaydeep chose the most stunning setting to propose to his girlfriend Priya. 

I was honored to provide gorgeous flowers to mark this momentous occasion. Erica Ann Photography captured this special moment at Lan Su Chinese Garden in Portland Oregon.

The groom to be, wore a stylish botanical pocket square that I created to coordinate with his suit and tie. It was a fun and unique alternative to a traditional boutonniere. 

Priya's favorite flower "the Peony" was featured along side garden roses, freesia, jasmine, camelia, ranunculus and foliage in this beautiful garden style set up; marking the spot where Jaydeep proposed.

Beth + Erik - Open Door Baptist Church Troutdale, Oregon

Beth and Erik got married the week of Valentine's Day 2014, its hard to believe but we had a small snow storm that week. This late in the winter, its pretty unusual for the Portland metro area. 

With snow on the ground and all, I was still able to capture Beth's love for bold beautiful colors. I had full creative freedom to design the flowers as long as they included a bright color palette. 

Beth's bouquet consisted of some of my favorite blooms. Garden roses, lisianthus, stock, wax flower, queen annes lace, parrot tulips, berzelia, cymbidium orchids, ranunculus and maidenhair fern.  I was very happy to be able to design with all seasonal flowers, locally sourced and 100% American Grown.
