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.
Bridal Veil Lakes Oregon Wedding | Timberly + Michael
It is always a pleasure working with brides who are over the moon, giddy, and excited about their wedding. Timberly was that bride. From the first time we met to talk about her wedding plans and floral, to the actual wedding day, she was very much looking forward to marrying her best friend. Simply put, she was filled with joy.
Timberly + Michael were married on a hot, Oregon summer day. 100 degrees to be exact. It was a scorcher! These two tied the knot at one of the most beautiful venues in Oregon, Bridal Veil Lakes. Nestled up off the Historic Highway along the Columbia River Gorge, we were able to stay cool(er) shaded by the grand evergreen trees that the venue boasts.
The floral was mostly shades of peach, blush and coral accented plum shades brought in through figs and plums.
For the ceremony we adorned the arbor and aisle with hops vines. It was simple, but created a beautiful lush space. I just adore this look!
Timberly’s bouquet featured cafe au lait dahlias, peonies (yes, in August!), garden roses, and ranunculus.One of my favorite ceremony designs to date. Lush hops vines. I love incorporating fruit into arrangements and table design. Not only does it add beautiful color, but it brings in authentic, seasonal texture. The centerpieces were arranged in beautiful silver compote bowls. The florals included cafe au lait dahlias, peach garden roses, blackberries, eucalyptus, and delicate yellow scabiosa.
Brittany and Rob were married at the stunning Red Ridge Farm in Oregon’s wine country. The property boasts beautiful vineyards, olive groves, and lavender fields; the perfect place for an intimate event!
The bride wanted her floral to reflect the beauty of the area and chose a soft color palette of blue, peach, ivory, and muted greens. These colors were beautiful against Brittany’s gown and the blush bridesmaid’s dresses.
Thank you Brittany and Rob for allowing Swoon to be part of your special day. Enjoy these beautiful images from Sweetlife Photography.
