Terra Cotta Vibes | Brasada Ranch Wedding Editorial
The beauty of Central Oregon is undeniable. I have come to this area all my life and it holds some of my most cherished memories. As an Oregon Event + Floral Designer, I often times find inspiration in nature. While vacationing here this past fall, the colors and texture of the landscape inspired me. The red toned bark of the trees, the dusty ground, and sagebrush all sparked inspiration for an editorial shoot.
I chose Brasada Ranch as the venue for the shoot because of the beautiful views of the Cascade Mountain Range, roaming horses, big sky, and quintessential Central Oregon landscape.
The ranch boasts several areas for both ceremony and reception both indoors and outdoors. I love the area near the bridge and pond.
Because the landscape is so beautifully neutral, I wanted to add depth by using more saturated colors such as peach, copper, berry, and navy. This color palette was perfect for an early fall wedding. One of my favorite textures was the snowberry branches that were turning color. The use of persimmon and fig are another favorite element that showcase the season.
The silk and willow runner, stoneware dishes, and terra cotta vessels added beautiful warmth and texture to the table scape.
As a nod to the rustic nature of the venue, the table and chairs and all other elements of the shoot were more simplistic, yet refined.
