Summer Flowers featuring Zinnias, Dahlias and Garden Roses

This blog post has been a long time coming. I think this session actually took place around this time last year?! Crazy how fast time flies. My friend Lexia Frank is such a talented film photographer and is putting together a book for other photographers, or just anyone who wants to learn more about film photography. She needed a few subjects to photograph for a few of her lessons, which is where I came in. :) I love all of the different levels of lighting she used in these photos. So interesting and unique! Thanks for including me Lexia, I love your work!

Mt. Hood Organic Farms Wedding Flowers in Bright, Vibrant Summer Hues

When Olivia and Eric first reached out to me they mentioned that they were getting married at Mt. Hood Organic Farms and that they loved bright, summer colors; can you imagine my excitement? A lot of couples have been sticking with a more neutral palette of whites, greens, and blush lately, which I love, but it's so nice to break out and go bold every now and then too. Plus, I love Mt. Hood Organic Farms!

O & E also contracted me to do some flat styling for their big day. They ended up enlarging a print I designed and used it near their ceremony entrance, which was so flattering and exciting to see. I also designed all of the table numbers the same way. You can view the photos below to see the flat styling I did for them in their initials using fruit and flowers. Such a fun little project!

Since their color palette was "all colors" we ended up going all over the spectrum. Olivia wanted a nice mix of lighter shades, and brighter ones too, to contrast. Here bridesmaids wore soft, pastel shades, so we kept their bouquets soft. Meanwhile, Olivia's bouquet was a mix of pastel and pops of deep and bright colors. Some of the flowers used were dahlias, clematis, zinnias, garden roses, poppies and more!

Congrats again to Olivia and Eric! :)

French Garden Inspired Seattle Wedding with Purple, Pink and White Flowers

This French inspired editorial was one of my favorites from last year. I traveled up to Seattle for the very first time and enjoyed every minute of it! This shoot was a labor of love by all of the vendors listed below and we all had a great time styling and working together that chilly day. :)

Some of the flowers I used here are garden roses, clematis, viburnum and ranunculus. This shoot took place in November, so this is a pretty good glance at what winter wedding flowers could look like. Hope you enjoy!

Thank you to Belles & Bubbles for the beautiful feature earlier this year!

Deepwood Estates Wedding Inspiration in Salem, Oregon

Deepwood Estate might be one of the dreamiest places for a wedding in Oregon. No matter what your taste is, I think a historic venue like Deepwood Estate can please everyone.

Our unique bridal editorial took place in the heart of rainy season here in the PNW, so the greens and gardens surrounding the estate were extra lush. The dark skies added an extra moodiness that really made this editorial something special.

For this bouquet, I used a mixed of dried flowers and fresh flowers in deep, rich colors. Lots of fall foliage too! Mums, garden roses, dried protea, and kangaroo paw were some of my favorites in this one. I was inspired by the rust color gown, from Elizabeth Dye, and wanted the flowers to compliment it, as well as the season and location.

If you want to see more, this editorial was featured on Once Wed. Feel free to take a look at it there and read more about Jessica Rose's inspiration behind the "Shadows" theme.

Welcome to Foraged Floral!

Thank you so much for stopping by, I am so happy you are here!

Foraged Floral is a new venture for me, but I am excited to watch it grow. I began my career in the wedding industry as strictly a planner. I established my planning business, A Splendid Occasion, in the fall of 2013 but as life carried on and as more and more weddings happened, I discovered my passion for flowers and floral design.

Initially, I added floral design services on in addition to my already existing wedding planning services, that worked out great. In these instances, I was able to hone in on my design skills, while also staying organized as the planner and designing as the florist. Over time, I found that flowers were what made me happy and I decided to branch out completely with my new floral only business as we moved to our new home in Portland. Then came, Foraged Floral.

Stay tuned for all of the exciting foraging adventures, weddings and events to come as I begin this new adventure in Oregon.
