Oooohhhh.... Spring Weddings!

I just got the photos from Nick and Sara's wedding by the talented Char Beck Photography and I am just drooling! To start, Sara was stunning in her beaded dress, simple, braided up-do and knockout deep red lips. Then add a squad of beautiful women in shades grey to slate blue lace. Top it off with lush, spring flowers in neutrals with the industrial Portland backdrop at the Exchange Ballroom and you get perfection.

I am so thankful for couples who chose to risk the weather from February to May. More than any time of year, the variety of seasonal, local flowers is plentiful and always comes together in a beautiful mix of lovely. The standouts in these bouquets are definitely the green centered anemones and mauvey hellebores. They went perfectly with the dusty Faith roses, white lilac and creamy garden roses. And, let's be real, everything is better with silver dollar eucalyptus.

Bridal Beauty

I recently did a styled shoot with Candice Hackett of Ivy & Tweed. Her ability to work with light is unmatched. This was such a beautiful bridal shoot with a goal for ethereal beauty. I think we accomplished it! For the shoot, I created an ombre bouquet in pinks and whites accented with dark ruscus and soft dusty miller. For the second look, I created a a high texture bouquet in whites and greens for a natural and organic look.
