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.

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.

Portland Oregon Engagement Session with Aniko Productions -Huong + Quan

I cannot get over the beautiful red dress Huong wore for her engagement session with Aniko Productions.

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.
