JAIMIE + ERIC

Another wedding at Bridal Veil Lakes in the books with this gorgeous wedding! No detail was spared with flowers on their canoe, hand dyed table runners with vintage brass candles, an entire champagne wall at a seating chart, hundreds of twinkly lights + and the most beautiful sparkler send off. The day of the wedding, it was pouring while we were designing their beautiful arbor and getting everything in order and we genuinely weren’t sure if what should’ve been a warm July day would be a gloomy and rainy wedding day. But thankfully, with high hopes and a few prayers the sun made its appearance and everything was perfect! I forgot to mention that they had paella and a churro cart to make things all the more amazing! Does it get any better than that?! But like every wedding, it takes a village to pull it off and this was the amazing team that made it happen!

MALLORY + ANDREW

Where do I begin with this gorgeous elopement?! Mallory and Andrew decided to elope at Mount St. Helens and it couldn’t have been more perfect of a place with the mountain behind them and the wildflowers (that somehow perfectly match their outfits?!) surrounding them. They started the day at Pips Donuts and rode bikes around the city, they stopped by my studio to grab their flowers and chat and they were on their way, and that’s one of the many reasons I love elopements. They can be whatever you want! Not only that, but you can WEAR whatever you want! Mallory wanted something different and went with this gorgeous electric blue gown that complimented her personality perfectly, and Andrew did the same in a super cool color blocked tie and red suit! I wanted their flowers to compliment their design choices and be as cool and wacky as their elopement was (did you have a chance to see her sparkly socks?) so I went with minimal blooms, and focused on the intention of each bloom instead. I also wanted to keep the flowers native to PNW since that’s where they were eloping. So, we ended up with a funky color blocked bouquet with smoke bush, echincea, hot cocoa garden roses, blue bachelor buttons and preserved mushroom (Its tucked in there!)! This elopement was an amazing challenge and inspiring overall to work on and I am beyond happy with the way everything came together!

A big thank you and shoutout to the following vendors who were also a huge part in this turning out so beautifully!

TABLESCAPE INSPIRATION

Who doesn’t love a good tablescape?! I’ve been wanting to try design in ways other than with flowers lately and what better way than to style a table. I wanted to create each one in a totally different vibe and now that I look at it, I feel like i was inspired by the seasons! Personally, I love things to be clean and simple but with intention. That’s my approach to designing flowers and I am super happy with how each scape turned out with the same idea applied. We don’t need a ton of details on the table to create something unique and beautiful. Which is so hard for us to remember sometimes when planning our weddings and scrolling through the gorgeous styled shoots and million dollar weddings on instagram and pinterest (though those are extremely pretty and inspiring!!). By being intentional with the details you do have on the table, you can create the most beautiful and elevated design!! So when you are planning your weddings tablescape, keep that in mind! Intentional details are the way to go!

VALENTINES EDITORIAL

You know I love a good color block! This shoot was a part of my color series. The point of the color series is for me is to focus on one color at a time so I can learn all its complexities and not be afraid to use more of it! Basically, putting myself really far out of my little happy box. A color I always tended to steer from was red. Its bold, bright and kind of in your face. so when paired with other colors it definitely becomes the diva and center of attention in the group! however, what I really enjoyed about red is when its used alone and you play into its bold color you can create such a statement! I paired it with pink (because duh, it was Valentines day!) and I loved the way it turned out! I wasn’t able to find a dress that fit the vision, so I created one out of tulle right on Amber, which was a first and super fun. And you wouldn’t be able to tell from the amazing editing skills of Lauren, but this was shot in my office at home with pink paper taped to the walls! It was such a fun time to do something totally different and much bolder than I am comfortable with and I couldn’t have done it with my amazing team! I will be sharing these images for the rest of forever, probably right around valentines day. ;)

SARAH + KEN

My goodness, i dont eveN know where to begin with these two!! This wedding was absolutely amazing. Hidden in hillsboro is scholls valley lodge. When you pull into this venue you would never guess this gorgeous vineyard is literally 45 minutes from portland. They have wild flowers planted everywhere and a beautiful view of the hills. I think that may have been my favorite part about it, honestly. The vision sarah had for the day was to transform the barn into a beautiful overgrown lounge for everyone to eat the delicious food chefs table prepared and relax. We trailed southern smilax all along the twinkly lights and along the beams to make the space feel light and airy. Sarah also loves pampas grass, which is music to my ears! To create something unique and combine all her favorite things (the girl loves her eucaplyptus and pampas grass) we created a cresent shape on the ground full of eucalyptus and pampas grasses with pops of playa blanca roses to compliment the beautiful tree they got married under and create balance between the install and tree. For added oomph, i created mini versions of the install along the aisles to repurpose throughout the wedding during the reception (how cool did it make the bar look?!). We put dismantled the install and used it to style the signs and little nooks to make it feel like everything was overgrown. Nothing makes my heart happier than making sure the flowers are used in every which way during a wedding day. Its the perfect way to make your day all the more lush! Sarah and ken were the most lovely people to work with. They had vision and the kindest hearts and that makes me love what i do so much more. All the love to these two love birds. And of course, to the amazing team that made this day perfect!

HAILEY + RYAN

Ah, this wedding. All the jewel tones and forest inspired details. Hailey really wanted her wedding to feel like a little forest oasis with some colorful and moody elements. She told me she wanted a bold and funky bouquet (my favorite thing to hear!) so i went wild with lots of textures and dimension and of course - bounce! My favorite part about her bouquet was the way it bounced when she walked, it felt so fun and free. What i also loved about hailey was her openness to ideas. I really wanted to create a unique table arrangement for her and she was totally cool with me creating a fun little floral forest patch on her table! I mean… how cool does that moss look?! And then with those blooms growing out too.. one of the coolest table arrangements a bride has let me do. We made mini versions of this on her guests tables paired with candles and lanterns to create a really pretty minimal and inviting reception. Of course Vera captured this day so beautifully, and full of color. Doesn’t get any better!
