Portland, Oregon Florist + Event Design


Columbia River Gorge Elopement

I may be biased, but Oregon is the most beautiful state in all the land. In the last couple years or so, I have noticed more and more of my clients choosing to marry or elope in Portland, Oregon and surrounding areas.

The Columbia River Gorge is a gorgeous area of the state boasting beautiful views, lush green landscape, and many waterfalls. This area has become a popular place for adventurous couples to marry.

The concept for this elopement was moody and romantic. Kelsey from Vanity Affair, requested a BIG bridal bouquet and I was happy to oblige! I chose a color palette of burgundy, plum, and navy, accented with some ivory tones to add some depth. I also loved how the oak leaves and eucalyptus created some seasonal context.
