Real Wedding: Sandi & Kevin 06.28.14

0 Comments • Posted by Champagne on August 15, 2014

Sandi and Kevin’s wedding was filled with laughter and love. Michelle Cross Photography, captured the natural beauty of the couple and the rustic chic venue, Postelwaits.  The bride wanted to incorporate her Hawaiian traditions into the Pacific Northwest, rustic setting. She threaded hundreds of paper cranes that hung in the reception barn, which gave a playful touch to the natural atmosphere. The traditional lei exchange, brought color and emotion to the ceremony while the sweet floral robes brightened the room as the wedding party got ready in their hotel suite.

The couple had many traditional Greek elements throughout their wedding ceremony & reception. A Greek DJ had the dance floor packed all night as guests danced in customary circle dances! Jordan almonds were given out as favors which symbolize many things for the marriage including the endurance of marriage and the sweetness of future life.

Tuscan Wedding Inspiration In Portland

0 Comments • Posted by Champagne on July 28, 2014

A wedding in Italy would no-doubt be awesome, but sometimes your budget dictates you play out that dream closer to home For our “Tuscan Wedding Inspiration” stylized shoot, we wanted to inspire couples who have visions of a destination wedding under the Tuscan sun but don’t have the budget. You can bring all of the romantic details of Italy to the Northwest in this lovely boutique venue, Opal 28 right here in Portland, Oregon. Our Tuscan-inspired shoot captured by Hoddick Photography, full gallery can he seen on Style Me Pretty.

The inspiration for our stylized shoot came from lemons which remind us of the Tuscan sun. We took cues from Tuscany and citrus orchards to create an elegant and rich look. We played off of the warm feel of Opal 28 and used lots of ivories, lemon, olive, and deep toned wood.

Lux Sucre carried the theme through to the decadent flavors of the desserts while playing up beautiful details on a simple color palette. Tie That Binds created a gorgeous invitation suite, menus, and personalized signs as well darling lemon leaf place-cards. Zest Floral used ivory, greens and light yellow to create a lush and delicate look for the entire shoot.

For the more traditional ceremony look, we put the bride in a cathedral length veil and beautifully detailed dress from Ania Couture and the groom in a distinctive tuxedo by Tuxedo Warehouse through Este’s. The romantic updo by Jennifer at Face Body Beauty easily transitioned to cascading curls, accented by a delicate floral crown from Zest for a more relaxed reception look. Sahlia Jewelry provided the uniquely gorgeous hairpiece for the ceremony look and all the jewelry for both bridal looks.

Urban Orchard Wedding Inspiration

0 Comments • Posted by Champagne on June 17, 2014

Our “Urban Orchard” inspiration shoot took place at Urban Studio which is located in the center of Portland’s Pearl District. Fifteen years ago the Pearl District was a primarily industrial, partially abandoned area. Since then it has undergone a massive revival and is home to many condos, restaurants and boutiques. That combination of downtown chic and industrial made for a wonderful and completely blank slate for our imaginations to play with. The area also hosts a lot of hidden spots that are fantastic for portraits that our photographer, Ashley Forrette, was sure to utilize.

For the shoot we wanted to create a look that was classic and elegant while still maintaining a really warm, inviting and fun feel. We chose the colors of plum, apple red, peach and green as they’re both rich and a little whimsical.

In recent years Portland has developed a wonderful sense of locavore pride. So we wanted to make the most of what our area has to offer not only to show clients how to share it with guests in a slightly new way. Apples, wheat, herbs, and, of course, roses (in reference to Portland’s nickname, The City of Roses) were featured in the table centerpiece and personal flowers as a fairly subtle reference to area’s farming industry. We also created a dessert buffet that featured warm drinks in addition to the cake. Fresh pressed hot cider and hot cocoa with all of the fixings made a sweet accent to the table and also warm guests up. Last but not least, a smores pit made out of a repurposed wine barrel added a really fun photo op and sweet treat at the end of the shoot! See the entire gallery on Style Me Pretty.
