Portland Wedding Florist

Columbia Gorge Elopement | Government Cove

One of my favorite parts about being a wedding florist is collaborating with other creatives in the industry and running with inspiration and ideas we have floating around in our heads.

When I was approached by a group of Portland wedding photographers about being part of an elopement shoot in the Columbia River Gorge, I knew this was something I wanted to collaborate on.  The gorge is one of my favorite parts of Oregon. I love that it is only a short drive outside of Portland. Government Cove is a beautiful area off the beaten path, with breath taking views of the Columbia River.

I loved the Pacific Northwest feel to this shoot. Warm and inviting, with touches of natural elements.

Thank you to a wonderful team of vendors who put so much time, effort and talent into this elopement. Also, check out the feature on Grey Likes Weddings!

My name is Kim, I’m a Portland native and the owner and designer of Swoon Floral Design. Being creative has always been a significant part of my life. From a young age I was always looking for something to design, repurpose, and create. With a background in interior design and horticulture, Swoon allows me to combine my passion for flowers and foliage, color, texture, and fabulous spaces by creating one of a kind arrangements for some of the most beautiful events in Oregon. Whether you are drawn to lush garden style arrangements or simple blooms in eclectic bottles, I will ensure each creation reflects your unique style + aesthetic. I work closely with my clients, making sure their wedding or event is the most cherished of occasions. When not playing with beautiful blooms, you can find me spending time with my family and friends, on a hike, checking out local farmers markets, and exploring the Portland "foodie" scene.
