One of my favorite things about Oregon is the abundance of locales like Central Oregon’s Suttle Lake, where nice days make you feel lucky to be alive in such a beautiful place. It’s easy to take such gorgeous surroundings for granted when they’re so accessible. One of the things I love so much about Ali and Marcus’s late summer/early fall wedding is how they made the most of everything the setting had to offer. From the sweet photos of the bride and groom nestled in a canoe, to the cabins where...

What strikes me about this day is how gorgeous Oregon’s fall foliage looks paired with a charming vintage setting—I particularly love the combination of the...

Last week we were excited first-time attendees of Portland Fashion Week, and it did not disappoint! During breaks between bites of swag bag cupcakes, we managed to catch a few glimpses of the latest in local bridal design.

Nature of Isa showcased the silky minimalist designs of Oregon winter wedding dreams. Of all the...

Amanda's lacy bridal gown, dreamy garden setting and pastel florals set the stage for her updated fairytale marriage to Chris, but this couple is nothing if not Portland! From the bride’s striking purple hair and gorgeous tattoos to the tarot card reader at the reception, the mystical mood of this wedding has a distinctly modern twist. Details like the black cake and tablescape accents and new-age crystals sprinkled throughout the reception kept the setting contemporary. In looking through...

Brides have been filling their weddings with white bouquets and floral arrangements for decades-- it's timeless, isn't it? But when we saw Lauren Conrad's recently-released wedding album and elegant white bouquet, we remembered how much we love them. The key to successfully executing a white color palette is to incorporate an accent color (or two!) and lots of texture. A slight contrast will enhance white and make it appear even more beautiful and radiant. Whether it's pastel pink or blue, lush...
