Villa Catalana Cellars - Italian Fine Art Inspired Wedding Shoot in Portland

I can’t believe I am just now getting around to blogging this amazing shoot with Dima Karpenko Photography.

It was a beautiful collaboration that got published by Adorn Magazine.

So many elegantly curated details to showcase the absolutely breathtaking Villa Catalana Cellars which is a gorgeous stone villa that perfectly embodies the look and feel of Italy.

Bridal Bouquet consisted of 100% American Grown Flowers {Oregon + California} Olive, Peonies, blueberries, plums, martagon lilies, nandina, garden roses and scabiosa. Accented with luxurious champagne colored silk ribbon.

It was a pleasure bringing this Italian inspiration to life, and we could not have done it without the amazing team of wedding pros.

Libby and Sal's Portland Oregon Victorian Belle Wedding

Libby and Sal had their first look photos taken at the St John’s Bridge and then headed over to the Victorian Belle in Portland for their ceremony and reception.

I loved the blush and ivory bridesmaids bouquets against their pale blue dresses. That was a popular bridesmaids dress color for 2018.

Libby’s bouquet featured locally grown dahlias, blush lisianthus, garden roses, blush hypericum, queen annes lace and more.

Christine Dong Photography captured all the colors so beautifully.

Dream Cakes provided the gorgeous wedding cake that I had the honor of accenting with foliage and textures.

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.

Nicolette and Mahbodd -A Portland Wedding at the Sentinel Hotel

Nicolette {Nikki} and Mahbodd had one heck of a bridal party. Which included 24 of their closest friends, family and college roommates.

The ceremony took place at Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church in Lake Oswego.

Reception was at the gorgeous Governor Ballroom at the Sentinel Hotel in Downtown Portland.

So many family and friends came to celebrate the couple and the DJ's from Event Team Entertainment kept the party going on the dance floor all night.

Beautiful four tier wedding cake was created by Lamb's. I enjoyed adding the luscious dahlias and ranunculus to the cake.

I was so pleased to be able to source some beautiful peonies {yes in August} for the Bridal and Bridesmaids bouquets. Which also included plum and  blush colored dahlias, ranunculus, scabiosa and lush foliage.

It was an absolute pleasure working with Nikki and Mahbodd and the wonderful team of wedding vendors.

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! "

Jenni + Daniel {East Fork Country Estate} Damascus, Oregon Wedding

I cant believe it been a year since Jenni and Daniel got married at East Fork Country Estate in Damascus, Oregon. They were absolutely the sweetest couple. I designed flowers for Jenni's sister a few years earlier so it was great to see everyone again. Jenny chose the softest shades of blush pink, peach and ivory as her primary color palette for her May wedding.

Being right in the midst of the local peony season, I could not resist myself to use such lush and fragrant flowers. Fluffy pale pink peonies were everywhere and they were stunning indeed!

Thank you to Anzhelika Gekkelman Photography for the beautiful images. This talented photographer also happens to be the grooms sister who has her own photography business in British Columbia, Canada.

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. 

For more photos of this proposal head on over to Erica Ann Photography Blog.

Alexandra + Clay - Villa Catalana Cellars -Oregon City, OR

Alexandra wanted a spring bouquet in lavender and peach tones.

Her bridal bouquet included locally grown fresh lavender, peonies, sweet peas, stock, succulents and sweetheart roses. The fragrance was absolutely divine and all the flowers used were 100% American Grown. 

Here is what Alexandra had to say about her experience: 

"My wedding bouquet far exceeded my expectations! Lora created a stunning bridal bouquet that was more beautiful than the pictures I had sent her from Pinterest. She worked with me and my budget in creating equally gorgeous bridal party bouquets and boutonnieres. I could not have been more satisfied and have already recommended her to friends."

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.
