Vintage Woodland Wedding
From canoes to tipis, there’s so much to love about Chris and Amber’s wedding at Bridal Veil Lakes. The outdoorsy couple enjoys everything the Pacific Northwest has to offer; so what better way to say, “I do” than a whole wedding weekend in the middle of the woods? The style was a beautiful blend of natural elements like wood and herbs paired with vintage tabletop décor like brass animal critters and candleholders. Keep scrolling to see what the bride had to say about her incredible day.
From the bride, Amber:
“We wanted to create something that truly incorporated the seasonal tastes, textures and vibe of the wild side of Portland. We also wanted to add in our own aesthetic with lots of handmade details created by ourselves and our friends and family. My dad made the photo booth backdrop and our illustrator friend John Vance helped us design our invites. Our favors were made using rosemary from our yard, as well as the table settings using trees and branches. Chris and I collected vintage vessels, bottles, candleholders and statues for the centerpieces and also designed all the artwork including chalkboard signs and escort cards. For our floral arrangements, I volunteered at a local flower garden in exchange for most of the flowers. The rest were picked at my brother’s farm and our own garden. My cousin and I arranged all the flowers and made the bouquet and boutonnieres. Three of my girl friends made all the desserts from scratch, decorating them with flowers from our garden as well.”
