The Audrey Hepburn of Real Weddings

For as many perfectly rustic or stunning and modern weddings that we fall in love with…my heart will always be with the classics. The white flowers. The gold rimmed china.  The Audrey Hepburns of the bunch.  And this wedding is so Audrey. Timeless and yet chic. Rooted in elegance with a sweet dust of whimsy. With photographs from the lovely Julia Wade, florals by Zest Floral and Event Planning by Exquisite Events, I could stare at this looker forever. Click here for even more.

From Julia Wade PhotographyKen and Christine were married on the most beautiful summer day at the base of Mount Hood in Oregon. It was a joy to come all the way from my home state of North Carolina to capture these two and watch a community surround them with celebration and love. This is my second time photographing this beautiful family of four sisters (!!) and I’ve grown to adore them even more, if that was possible. Thank you so much for having me Ken and Christine. We truly loved every minute.

You’ll Fall for This Colorful Autumn Wedding Inspiration

What’s your favorite season? Mine just so happens to be fall and this inspiration highlights exactly why. From the colorful bouquet saturated with rich red hues, to the gilded cake accented with leaves (how creative is that?!), we’ve got it all captured from the talented Jamie Rae Photo in The Vault!

From Jamie Rae Photo“Every leaf speaks bliss to me when fluttering from the autumn tree…”-Emily Bronte. One step outside on a crisp Northwest autumn morning always stirs the romantic within. The promise of change…vibrant golds and fading reds…the burst of holiday cheer that surprises everyone with sudden arrival…all of these things create a cacophony of colorful inspiration. This romantic shoot was inspired by the crisp air and that feeling of change that magically stirs the soul in Autumn. And while it wasn’t hard to find inspiration this time of year, we wanted to put together a team of the absolute best vendors to showcase how wonderful a fall-fading to winter holiday wedding can look like. Swoon Floral Design created a palette of roses, oak leaves, astilbe, lisianthus, mums, and nandina for the bouquet and floral center pieces. We accented these colors with hints of the holiday season for table decor…persimmons, pears, hazelnuts and chestnuts remind us of the celebratory season that fall ushers in. These tones and textures can be incorporated into a fall or winter, seasonal or religious wedding or event. A bountiful holiday spread of cheese, almonds, bread and jam illustrate how easy it is to entertain artistically (and deliciously!) this time of year. Claire La Feye provided a dramatic chantilly lace, two piece gown, which we accented with hand made gold jewelry from Jes Design Studio.

Get Ready to Say Farewell to Summer with This Stunning Shoot

I happen to believe that the unforgettable Mr. Calvin Harris said it best with his rendition of “Summer,” because honestly that’s pretty much I feel inside as we begin to bid adieu to summer and say HELLO to sudden seasonal changes. Thankfully, we’ve got the ultimate farewell to our favorite season captured by Savan Photography to help us ease into it all. See it in The Vault!

From Savan PhotographyThe white sand, the beach grass, the wide open coast line and of course the Haystack Rock were all inspiration for our Oregon Coast Summer light Bridal/Wedding Inspirational shoot. Our vision was simple and fresh. To achieve that vision, we gathered elements from the landscape and local farms for our florals. We kept the colors of the florals fresh and light keeping it in line with the pale ocean blue hues and the local greenery. All of which complimented the stunning landscape.

In regard to the table setting, we looked to the ocean and sky for our inspiration and settled with classic blue plates. Also wanting to add a little sparkle, we brought in colors of gold seen on the bottom of our champagne glasses, while still drawing the eye to the surrounding landscape. Linen napkins, beach grass and drift wood we added for a pretty and organic table setting.

Incorporating fresh greenery of white, green and yellow hues and florals forged from a local farm, brilliantly designed by Metal and Moss, took this bridal session to the next level. Crafted with so much attention to detail, it didn’t matter which way the bride held the bouquet; each bloom and greenery fell perfectly into place and was stunning from every angle. The floral table arrangement was just as gorgeous with its design, organic and effortless feel.

We also extended those ocean hues to the invitation suite that was made by Pirouette Paper. The script was perfected crafted on fine Italian paper with rich royal blue ink.

The vision was not to overlook Cannon Beach, or Haystack Rock of the Oregon’s Coast; it was to highlight it with minimal and clean design in mind.
