  • Summer Wedding at Yale Union with Bryan Rupp!

    Yale-Union-Wedding-59

    Julie and Chris were married last June at the incredible space at Yale Union in SE Portland.  We kept the flowers light and bright in shades of butter yellow, blush, cream and green for a seasonal, fun feel.  One of my favorite details of the day were the eclectic wooden chairs from Something Borrowed Vintage Rentals that were used for both the ceremony and reception.  Dinner was served family style at long wooden farm tables that we accented with flowers in vintage medicine bottles and gold compote vases.  Congratulations Julie and Chris and thank you for letting us take a part in your beautiful day!

    Sarah and Alex were married in an intimate ceremony on the DeSoto Rooftop in Oldtown Portland in August.  Brittany Lauren did a fantastic job of capturing the joy and beauty of our sweet couple on this day as they celebrated, danced and dined to a meal crafted by the Art of Catering.  For the decor we blended organically inspired florals with more modern lanterns, airplants and votive candles for a look that perfectly reflected our modern couple.  Congratulations Sarah and Alex and thank you for letting us be a part of your day!

  • Winter’s Dawn Inspired Wedding Shoot

    View More: http://maryalicehall.pass.us/dawn-styled-shoot

    On a cold, misty morning in December I loaded up the Blum van and drove it out into the Columbia Gorge about an hour before the sun started to peek up for our Winter’s Dawn inspired shoot.  When I arrived at the shoot location, Gorge-ous Weddings at Wind Mountain Ranch, the sky was just starting to warm and you could see the snow on the tops of gorge cliffs with fog lifting off of the Columbia.  The shoot was meant to be dreamy and it really was! Cranberry reds, cream, blush, grey and icy blue tones set against vintage furniture, dreamy dresses and lots of lush fabric textures were the look of the day.

  • Mt Hood Organic Farm Wedding with Dylan and Sara Photography!

    mt-hood-organic-farms-0065

    Patrick and O’Dessa were married on a gorgeous July day at Mt Hood Organic Farms.  Between the stunning view of the Mountain and the completely charming indoor spaces the farm is one of my absolute favorite venues!  O’Dessa wanted to enhance that setting with soft, pretty, loose florals in shades of cream, blush, peach, coral and green.   Patterned ceramic vases from Anthropology and loads of quirky details added whimsy and interest to an otherwise classic and soft palette.

  • Astoria Wedding by Brittany Lauren Photography!

    Fort-George-Brewery-Wedding-Astoria-Brittany-Lauren-Photography-267

    Susan and Daniel were married in July at the Barbey Maritime Center in Astoria with a reception following at Fort George Brewery.  To create the setting for both the ceremony and reception sites we worked with event designing company Muse by Christina.  The ceremony space was left simple and clean so the focus was on the gorgeous arched windows behind the couple. After the ceremony guests were transported back into downtown Astoria where Christina’s team had completely transformed the interior of Fort George Brewery’s event space.  One of my favorite elements were the paper cranes they hand made and hung in a swooping effect over the tables.  Medicine bottles and silver vessels filled with pastel flowers were tucked in with lanterns, coral, starfish, candles, compasses, driftwood and more on the tables for a truly eclectic, beachy feel.
