Ilsa + Sean- A Portland Oregon wedding at the World Forestry Center

Ilsa and Sean had a wonderful celebration that included their closest friends and family and even their pup.

I enjoyed working with some of my favorite wedding pros including: Adornment Events Coordination, Party Place Rentals, Aniko Productions Photography, Chef’s Table Catering, Laurie Clarke Cakes and others.

When you get married at the World Forestry Center you do not compete with the beautiful natural decor. Instead you enhance it by utilizing the locally grown ferns, greenery and textures.

Ilsa carried a hand-tied bouquet featuring both dahlias and peonies; which is hard to do since they are grown in opposite seasons. Accented with lots of foliage, textures and berries.

I loved creating this gorgeous woodland statement piece for the guest book table. This log came from the Oregon Coast and I adorned it in flowers, ferns, pods and succulents.

Nikki and Patrick -A Portland Oregon wedding at Oaks Pioneer Chapel and Mt Hood Organic Farms

Nikki and Patrick had their ceremony at the Oaks Pioneer Chapel in Sellwood, Oregon.

The reception was held at the gorgeous Mt Hood Organic Farms.

Bethany Small Photography captured some amazing photos. I especially loved the sunset and dusk shots with the Mt Hood in the backdrop.

Can we talk about how gorgeous Nikki’s gown was? absolutely exquisite! I also loved the beautiful mismatched gray bridesmaids dresses. Such a fun way to bring in some personality while flattering each body style.

Congratulations Nikki and Patrick! I wish you a lifetime of happiness in your new marriage.

Portland Oregon wedding at Urban Studios Tristan + Haley

Tristan and Haley had a gorgeous wedding at Urban Studio {One of my favorite venues in Downtown Portland}.

Bringing the outside in, means there is greenery and vines everywhere with a pop of blush pink and rose gold. A perfect setting for a hot August day.

Haley’s cascading bridal bouquet included locally grown Cafe au lait dahlias, garden roses, pepper berry vines, pops of blue eryngium and peonies.

I loved the mismatched look of the floral and the vessels. From rose gold mercury glass to white washed wood boxes, to clear elevated vases filled with lush greenery. Everything worked so beautifully to bring just enough elegance with a twist of rustic.

Rosycake provided a beautiful semi-naked wedding cake for us to adorn with flowers.

Portland Oregon wedding at Urban Studios - Rachael + Neil

I had the pleasure of working with Christina from Muse Design Inc. on Rachel and Neil’s modern wedding at Urban Studio in Portland.

I loved the sleek, clean and ultra modern white on white look. Greenlight Creative did a fabulous job on the lighting to bring it all together.

Grouping each floral variety together created a big visual impact and white petals down the aisle added to the wow factor.

Thank you Erica Ann Photography for the beautiful detail shots.

Mae and Daniel's Elegant Boho wedding at McMenamins Cornelius Pass Roadhouse

Mae and Daniel were the sweetest and the most laid back couple ever.

I loved the elegant yet relaxed boho style we were able to create for their big day.

Both Ceremony and Reception took place at the McMenamins Cornelius Pass Roadhouse in Hillsboro, Oregon.

I cannot say enough amazing things about Anna and Jake; the photographers behind Sweetlife Photography.

If you want beautifully curated images that reflect your wedding day look no further. They take time to create the perfect setting for each and every shot, including all the perfect little details. We always appreciate when photographers take every effort to not miss any details including the wearable flowers such as corsages, boutonnieres and hair accessories. As a designer, I spend a lot of time working on those little elements and its an absolute joy seeing them properly captured on camera.

Mae’s lush bohemian style bouquet included peonies, garden roses, ranunculus, unripe blueberry branches, dahlias, scabiosa, ferns and olive branches.

The icing on the cake was to work with some of our favorite vendor friends including Steve from A Beautiful Ceremony NW and John Ross Music

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! "

Photo Shoot with Erica Ann Photography and Village Ballroom

I can't say no when one of my favorite photographers asks me to collaborate on a photo shoot.

This was one of my all time favorite shoots. I got the full creative freedom to design and style all the floral and decor elements.

The overall look and feel was rustic -elegance with a large emphasis on garden style.

Enjoy!

Tori+Kenny -The Oregon Golf Club Wedding

I really enjoyed designing this beautiful spring wedding at The Oregon Golf Club. Fresh greens and crisp whites was the perfect color combination for this wedding.

The Bridal bouquet consisted of white peonies, ranunculus, sweet peas, hydrangea, lisianthus, calla lilies, maidenhair fern, trachillium, dianthus and berzelia, and a touch of gray dusty miller. 

This lush bouquet had the most amazing fragrance, absolutely one of my all time favorite designs.

Flowers for the hair -Oregon Engagement Photo Shoot

I was honored when Becky contacted me with a request to design a custom floral hair comb for her to wear during her engagement shoot with Natalie Puls Photography 

The floral comb was designed with lots of fun textural floral elements including tillandsia {aka air plants}, succulents and brunia berries. 

The photo shoot took place at Smith Rock in Terrebonne, Oregon which is a sentimental location for the couple. 

The last image was taken by me, to show the close up details of this floral piece. 

Here is what Becky had to say about her experience:

"Lora provided a gorgeous custom air plants floral comb. I sent her an inspiration photo from Style Me Pretty, and she brought the vision to life! I wore it in my engagement photos and received so many compliments! She even dropped it off at my house which was very convenient when I had a busy schedule at work. Thank you, Lora!"
