Hood River Wedding, Portland Wedding Florist

Kathleen + Ryan | Mt. Hood Organic Farm’s Wedding in Hood River, Oregon

Fuji 400H

In wake of the serious hot spell we’ve been having in Portland, I thought I would share Kathleen and Ryan’s wedding from last June. It was a whopping 102 degrees that day in Hood River! Nevertheless, Kathleen and Ryan had an amazing, beautiful wedding day.

Swoon had the honor of designing beautiful floral and also doing day of styling. I loved the cool, crisp palette Kathleen chose. White florals, sage green tones, and silver metallic accents all look gorgeous against the lush, green backdrop of the Mt. Hood Organic Farms.

Marsala + Blush Wedding at Zenith Vineyard | Portland, Oregon Floral and Event Design

Madison + Stephen | Zenith Vineyard Wedding

Months and months before their wedding, I met with Madison and Stephen at a cute little tea shop and chatted with them about life, how they met, and of course how they envisioned their wedding day. Madison showed me a number of screenshots on her phone of things she liked and was drawn to. I could tell through our conversation that they both had ideas for their wedding, but they weren’t quite sure how to tie all of them together or how it would be possible to execute all the details on the day of.

These two knew they were in need of not only our floral services, but event design as well. Through the course of several months, we were able to take all those screen shots and turn those ideas into tangible details that as a whole created a stunning wedding and beautiful atmosphere for Madison, Stephen and all their guests.

Initially, Madison was drawn to soft, more neutral colors like blushes, champagnes, and creams. Given that the venue was a winery, we decided to add in accents of marsala to add some depth and a pop of color. The overall style of their wedding was elegant, romantic, and sophisticated. We also incorporated Madison and Stephen’s monogram designed by Letters and Dust in many areas of the wedding.

Jamie Rae Photo captured their day beautifully and I’m so excited to share these images with you!

We worked with Letters and Dust to create this STUNNING invitation suite, complete with custom monogram that was used throughout the wedding. We are in love with the gold foil letter press and wax seal.

I loved Madison’s bouquet featuring local dahlias, garden roses, clematis vine and snowberry. We completed it with Frou Frou Chic ribbon and wedding rings from her late grandparents.

Red Ridge Farm Wedding | Portland, Oregon Wedding Florist + Event Designer

Ginny + Roger | Red Ridge Farm Wedding at Durant Vineyard

I’m so excited to share this beautiful Red Ridge Farm wedding from this past summer! Ginny and Roger hired us to not only create their beautiful florals, but also do the event design for their big day. We assisted them in curating every aesthetic element of their day from the invitations, to the place settings, linen choice, signage, etc.

Ginny initially told me she was drawn to soft colors like peach and blush. With that in mind I created a color palette using peach and blush, but also adding in some richer, brighter coral tones and shades of blue. These tones really stood out among all the lush greenery that the venue has to offer.

Ginny + Roger got married under the beautiful wisteria covered pergola and then had a cocktail hour for all their guests on the patio of the Olive Mill.  After cocktail hour, they invited their closest family and friends upstairs for an intimate dinner.

We wanted to mimic the feeling of being under the lush greenery of the pergola, so we created these greenery installations to hang over the tables as guests dined.

I love how the florals pop off of these beautiful blue linens from La Tavola.

Yale Union Winter Wedding | Portland, Oregon Wedding Florist

Shyla + Aaron | Winter Yale Union Wedding

Last December, I had the privilege of designing for Shyla + Aaron’s beautiful winter wedding at Yale Union in inner SE Portland.  The week of the wedding it had snowed in Portland and there were still some remains on the ground giving a little context to the brisk winter day it really was!

The couple chose a color palette of burgundy/marsala with pops of lighter hues such as ivory, blush, and champagne. I love this palette all throughout the year, but it really created a beautiful, cozy atmosphere for this winter wedding.

Shyla’s bouquet featured burgundy amaryllis, white Ohara garden roses, quicksand roses, dusty miller, silver dollar eucalyptus, and bay leaf.

For the ceremony we created a beautiful hanging installation for the couple to stand in front of and placed garlands and pillar candles down the aisle for a beautiful glow.

The reception space had beautiful, dark farm tables from Classic Vintage Rentals with lush greenery garlands where we tucked in floral and scattered lots of candle light down the spine of the tables. The vibe in the room was definitely romantic!

Thank you Shyla + Aaron for allowing us a create for your big day and happy (almost) 1 year anniversary!

European Wedding Inspiration at Monet Vineyards

My initial inspiration for this shoot was a photo of a couple walking through the tiled streets of a European city. I was struck by the grand architecture surrounding them, and the quietness of the photo, just the two of them walking hand in hand.  I wanted the color palette of this shoot to be neutral, all while mixing warm and cool tones. I love the juxtaposition of warm ivories, buttery yellows and cool grays and the texture of marble. When we stumbled upon images of Monet Vineyard in Washington, we knew it was the perfect backdrop for this editorial

I wanted to keep the ceremony space simple, as the backdrop of the estate is so regal by itself. We used simple bistro chairs for seating. White garden urns filled with seasonal greens and white floral flanked the couple.

The reception table was clean, inviting, and elegant. I loved the contrast between the gorgeous gold rimmed dinnerware and the cool gray linen. The centerpieces were full of garden roses, peonies, hellebore, blueberries to name a few.

Classic Vintage Rentals provided so many beautiful pieces for this shoot. From the vanity for the intimate bridal portraits, to the plush sofa and chairs, I love how each piece added character and a richness.

The cake table was fairly simple with a statement cake in the center and two smaller cakes flanking it. I loved how the marbled cake by Rosycakes turned out. Our calligrapher, Rachel Jacobsen added the French quote by Victor Hugo, “Life is a flower of which love is the honey.”

The stationery was perfectly sophisticated, with a stunning hand drawing of the venue. Rachel Jacobson also created place cards and a banner for the get away car to round out all of the beautiful details.

Thank you to everyone involved in creating such beautiful images! Especially the photographers themselves Sweetlife Photography! Enjoy!

Lauren + Grant | Vista Hills Winery Wedding

Lauren and Grant were married on a beautiful July day at one of my favorite Oregon Wine Country venues, Vista Hills. Vista Hills is picturesque in every way. The ceremony backdrop is tall trees with rolling hills of grape vines in the background. Afterwards guests are seated on the patio, nestled amongst grape vines.

The planning and designing process with Lauren was very fun and unique in the sense that these two live in Philadelphia and I didn’t meet them in person until just days before the wedding. Lauren, owner of Trousseau Style, has impeccable taste and style. It was an honor bringing her vision to fruition.

Lauren’s wedding colors were peach, blush, and cream with touches of coral. The flowers we used were garden roses, ranunculus, dahlias, jasmine vine. The tablescape consisted of vine greens down the spine of the table with delicate bud vases and brass candlesticks running down the spine of the table. To top it off each guests name were written on magnolia leaves and placed at each place setting. There were gorgeous detail at every turn and a dream team of vendors to execute it all. Enjoy these beautiful photos from Sweetlife Photography.

Plum + Mauve Wedding Editorial

Lately I have been crushing hard on the color Mauve. Can it please be the new blush?! I love how it elevates many different color palettes and I wanted to create a shoot that showcased this gorgeous hue. I chose to combine it with deep plum, lavender, pops of nude and peach, with gold accents. It is such an unexpected, moody palette for spring. It was important to me that the overall feel was soft, elegant and refined, nothing overdone or gaudy. Fine Art Film Photographer, Jamie Rae Photo, captured the essence of this shoot perfectly.

The velvet linen from La Tavola is such a show stopper. It laid a beautiful foundation for the brass candlesticks, gold rimmed china, and lush, feminine florals.

Much of my floral selection was directed by the season. I love how delicate spring blooms are and knew I wanted to include some of my favorites such as sweet pea, fritillaria, and ranunculus.

Another favorite element of this shoot was the gorgeous cake by Sainte G. It was the perfect mauve color with hand painted gold accents. It really only needed simple floral adornment.

Each creative involved did such a wonderful job capturing the refined, elegance of this shoot and I’m thrilled with the result.
