Earlier in this year Alexandra and I decided to collaborate on a fun and simple shoot with some leftover flowers I had. It was a really wonderful Sunday! We had so much fun playing with flowers and just letting our creativity flow, something I don't always get to do! :)
This winter was pretty tough to get through in Portland. We had so much rain and we went months and months with very few, if any sunny days! If there is anything good about an Oregon winter, it's this. How beautiful are these birch trees?
Jenni was dreaming up a winter bouquet for this shoot, and that's exactly what I created! Lots of greenery and twiggy details, with pops of winter white flowers such as lisanthus and spider mums. I even include some dried lunaria too! It was nice to play with some winter flowers and textures that I don't get to use often.
Thank you to Trendy Bride Magazine for featuring our work! It's always a treat to have our designs published. :)
Happy February friends!
These modern white wedding inspiration photos have been staring at me for a while, begging me to be shared on the blog. :) This sweet and simple editorial shoot was a fun project that was took place last winter. The plan was for this session to be outdoors, but winter in Portland can be a bit rainy, so we moved things inside with this clean white backdrop.
I used a mix of winter blooms like roses, dusty miller, nerines, astilbe and other blooms to create this wintry floral mix in peach, blush pink, white and cream. It was a fun, creative shoot to be a part of!
Thank you to Inspired by This for featuring this shoot earlier this year!

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. :)
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.
