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.

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

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.

Tristan + Haley's Portland Oregon wedding at Urban Studios

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.

Rachael + Neil's Portland Oregon wedding at Urban Studios

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.

Lidia + Pascal -A Portland Wedding at Abernethy Center- Abigail's Garden

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.

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.

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.

Kristen and Michael Mt. Hood SkiBowl Wedding by Powers Photography

Peter Chee with Powers Photography did a phenomenal job capturing the wedding photos. Dark color palettes are some of my favorites to work with. However, they tend to be difficult to properly photograph to get the true sense of color and dimension.

Bridal bouquet featured some of my favorite dark blooms, including: dahlias, roses, cymbidium orchids, scabiosa, peonies, ranunculus, carnations and plenty and texture.

Kristen and Michael were truly an adventurous couple and choose to get married at the top of Mt. Hood at Mt. Hood Skibowl.

Can you imagine taking a ski lift and having your first look with a mountain in the background?

Yep! That’s exactly what they did.

Trend Alert: Floral Hoop wreath bouquet-non traditional alternative

Boho trend continues on into decor and weddings are no exception. I love the more soft and elegant side of boho.

I created this floral hoop wreath bouquet to showcase a fun yet elegant alternative to a traditional bouquet. This past summer we had the opportunity to create several more hoop style bouquets for both bridesmaids as well as flower girls.

Many thanks to Whitney for being such a wonderful hair and make up artist as well as model. Whitney is the owner of Make up by Whit here is Portland. If you are looking for hair and make up services -look no further. I have had the opportunity to work with her on many occasions.

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.
