Foraged Floral - Portland, Oregon Wedding Florist, Up Close and Behind the Scenes

Happy New Year everyone!

I hope you all had an excellent holiday and are welcoming 2017 with warm, open arms. It's quite frigid here today, so as much as I wish I was outside designing, there is just no way!

This session happened at the end of 2015 when we had just moved to Portland. Sarah, of Sarah Carpenter Photography, had reached out to say that she was visiting Portland (she had also just moved, but to Seattle from Texas) and wanted to do a little creating. Since I had literally just moved across the country a few days before, my flower options were pretty limited. I decided to use what we had growing in our yard and did a little neighborhood foraging as well.

My husband put together this table with some scrap wood that we had traveled from Chicago with and there you have it! A last minute session that turned out to be quite amazing, if you ask me. Even our cute little pup Marcy joined in on the fun. :)

Wahclella Falls and Columbia Gorge, Waterfall and Adventure Wedding Elopement Flowers in Oregon

It's always such a treat when clients fly in from other parts of the country to elope here in Oregon and they chose Foraged Floral as their florist! I love getting to know brides and grooms, and adventure elopements are some of my favorite.

C & E were wonderful to work with and so sweet! They brought along a small cutting cake and champagne to celebrate after their vows at Wahclella Falls. Their vision for their April wedding day was beautiful and I am so thankful to have played a small role in their celebration. Congrats to you both!

For Casey's bouquet I used peonies, ranunculus, garden roses, clematis foliage and much more. Spring time flowers are some of the best, so I went all out! :) These designs were some of my favorite of the year.

Moody Oregon Coast Elopement with Dusty Pink, Mauve, Plum, and White Wedding Flowers

An elopement on the Oregon coast is always a good thing. Bring in an amazing vendor team, beautiful winter florals, some crazy winter Oregon weather and you get a really good time! :) Karra and Stefan are one of the sweetest couples out there and it was a treat to meet and work with them. Originally they eloped at a courthouse, so this was a fun and intimate way to rekindle their love. More on Utterly Engaged with their full love story and how this shoot came to be!

The session starts out with an intimate and authentic morning with coffee, bagels, toast, and all of the fixings. A really romantic start to their wedding day. After getting ready, they traveled to the coast where they were greeted with some less than favorable temperatures.

It was extremely windy and cold that day, but everything turned out lovely. We created an arrangement for their morning session, and a large bridal bouquet for Karra. This is one of my favorite winter bouquets I have made! Luck was in our favor and we were able to get peonies, beautiful garden roses, tallow berry, cedar, and much more beauties. I really enjoyed working with a moody palette of dusty pink, mauve, plum, white and navy. Perfect for an Oregon coast elopement in early December!

This elopement was also featured on Utterly Engaged, which we were all so grateful for! Feel free to take a look using the link to view more of the photos. There's also a beautiful video from the day below all of the photos, Bryon and Ashlie did an amazing job!
