  • Leftbank Annex Wedding with Ellie Asher

    Raffi and Nikkie were married in Portland at Leftbank Annex surrounded by friends, candles and loads of greenery! The wedding featured a traditional looking chuppah that was actually suspended from the ceiling so after the ceremony we were able to remove the legs and create a hanging canopy over the bride and groom’s table. Additional greenery chandeliers, long garlands, lots of candles and some of the prettiest glassware completed the tablescapes.

    Mazel and many thanks to the couple for letting us share in their beautiful day!

  • Portland Art Museum Wedding with Mosca Studio!

    Christelle and Jon were married at the Portland Art Museum in downtown Portland, Oregon! Lovers of food and flowers they hosted their guests to an incredible evening of beauty. We kept the flowers very crisp and clean in shades of white. Loads of candles and champagne accents added warmth and sparkle to the space. Hanging chandeliers of thousands of hand strung orchid blossoms, a floral “tunnel” entrance and even flowers in the elevators brought the floral drama to new heights (pun intended!)

    We hope you enjoy looking at this stunner as much as we did putting it together! And most of all thank you, thank you to Jon and Christelle for including us in their most special day!

  • Autumn light photo shoot with Spotted Stills!

    A few weeks ago I did something I almost never do anymore… a photo shoot! As a wedding florist in Portland my days April- October are typically very, very full with planning and producing our client’s events along with all the nitty gritty details and paperwork that comes with being a small business owner. To play with flowers simply for the sake of playing is a real luxury and a good reminder that slowing down and (quite literally) smelling the roses is so very important. I hope you enjoy these photos that celebrate the colors, flowers and light of early Autumn!

  • Sentinel Wedding with Jessica Hill!

    There are few things I love more than a wedding that combines a classic venue with thoroughly modern details. Ande and Michael’s hit that note perfectly when they married at downtown Portland’s First Presbyterian Church with a reception following at nearby at the Sentinel Hotel. Loads of seasonal sweet autumn clematis, smilax, smokebush,japanese maple, dahlias and roses added a richness and texture to the grand white ballroom. Simple, clean details in their paper products, place settings and the coolest impressionist cake by Dream Cakes kept the decor thoroughly new. Oh, and can we talk about the dresses and tuxes?! I’m in love. Congratulations Ande and Michael! Thank you for letting us take part in your gorgeous day!

  • Sentinel Hotel Wedding Flowers with Mosca Studio!

    Lauren and Damin were married last Spring at the Oregon Historical Society with a reception immediately following in the Sentinel Hotel. With the ceremony set alongside the beautiful South Park Blocks they wanted to continue the feel with a reception inspired by Parisian parks. 16′ tall maple trees were carried up 4 flights of steps and set around the ballroom. Striped accents, the most adorable flower girl squad, classic Spring blooms and whimsical accents including a crepe food cart (in the ballroom!) brought the theme to life.
