Spring time is one of my favorite times in the Gorge in Oregon. The Columbia Gorge Hotel is a stunning location for a spring wedding and if you love cherry blossoms, you won't be disappointed!Read More
Earlier this year I collaborated on a wedding inspiration shoot with some of the best vendors in Portland, OR! Spring is one of the best times of the year for beautiful flowers, so I went all out with shades of white, blush, purple and green flowers. Lots of amazing ranunculus, hellebores, spirea and tweedia too!

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. :)
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! :)
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!
