Stormy Oregon Coast Styled Shoot

Speaking as a native Oregonian I’m about to spill a local secret. The beaches? Well, they’re unbelievable. Take this enchanting day from Stephanie Mballo. It’s a misty morning juxtaposed against vibrant blooms, in what I like to coin as crazy beautiful stormy coastal chic. See it all here!

From The Foraged FernThe stormy clouds and dark cliffs couldn’t have provided a dreamier location. We wanted to mix a combination of coastal neutrals with deep moody florals. It really added a more dramatic feel to the typical beach look. One of my biggest goals was to find the perfect pale blue gown. As soon as I found this Gossamer gown I knew it was perfect. I could envision the soft flowing sleeves in the wind and the back layers mocking the crashing waves.

Romantic + Intimate Elopement in Oregon

Elopements are my weakness. Not only are they utterly romantic, but most of the time they occur in some seriously gorgeous settings. Like this sweetly intimate affair from the lens of Nikita Lee Photography set amongst the rolling hills of Oregon that’s got me weak in the knees. After hiking to exchange vows their day was complete with a champagne picnic, and you can see it all unfold here!

From the beautiful Bride… Adam and I met through church through our dear friend Luke. 4 years later, Adam proposed to me on a cliff overlooking the beautiful Oregon coast. That moment, I knew I wanted to get married in that very same spot. It was the most beautiful place I’ve ever been and it now held a special meaning to me.

Adam and I both agreed we wanted our wedding day to small and intimate. We wanted someone to capture all of our tender moments and the day to be about our family and Christ. So we decided to elope!

Our close friend Luke married us and Adam’s brother, Larry, and Larry’s wife, Kourtney (also a very good friend of mine) were our witnesses. Our son, Carter, came with us too.

I reached out to Nikita Lee Photography and she was so excited that we wanted her to photograph our day. She partnered up with Hunting Ground Films and they made our wedding day nothing short of magical. Nikita also introduced me to Bramble Floral Designs to make my bouquet. I wanted something earthy and pretty, and she did exactly that.

Everything was simple, elegant, and perfect.

The hike to the top of the rolling green hills is a long one, but totally worth it. Because the area is a protected trail, there is wildlife everywhere. Birds singing, deers moving about quietly, and squirells running up trees. And everything is so GREEN! You also cross over a few small streams. The most precious part of this hike though is when you come out of the forest and all you see is the big blue ocean and bright green hills everywhere. The view will leave you in awe.

So, I hiked up in my Nike Frees, then kicked them off and got married!

We wrote our own vows and and read them through tears of happiness. Luke read from his bible and reminded us what marriage is all about. Afterwards we had a small picnic with snacks and champagne!

After our hike back down, we had lunch at Kyllos in Lincoln City, OR.

Our day was exactly how we wanted it: full of love, laughs, and the Holy Spirit.

July 18th will forever be the best day of my life.

Rustic + Romantic Farm to Table Wedding Inspiration

Summer, to me, means taking a step back to enjoy the moment, and appreciate all the little details that make this time of year so special. And this gorgeous inspiration shoot from Christa-Taylor does just that, with a blend of understated elegance, seasonal fruits (real and watercolored!), and cheeky and sweet signage, that all come together to make something truly beautiful. See it all in the full gallery here!

Rustic Venue

From Christa-Taylor… The rich farmland presents such a vivid array of colors and inspiration for brides in the Northwest. All captured on fine-art film, this shoot was designed around the farm-to-table concept bringing in lush produce, seasonal greens and vendors who highlight the best of what the local farms have to offer.

No event is complete without first sending the invitations, and the hand-calligraphy of Katie Michelle really captured our fancy. Nestled in amongst the peach trees, we festooned the table with an abundance of peonies, poppies, and eucalyptus all the beautiful handiwork of Form and Flora. Square plates brought the perfect touch of modernity complemented by personalized linen napkins and green stemware.

Escort cards were pinned to fresh fruit and doubled as edibles for the guests. Because outdoor events can vary in temperature, we opted for local pies as the star of our dessert bar, with homemade jams as a take-home favor. Mini paper books in customizable color waves made darling bridal party gifts and doodle books for the little ones. Our bride strolled through the trees on the arm of her husband wearing the enviable gowns from Stephanie D Couture. When it was all said and done, I think the thing we loved the most was richness of it all – so much sumptuous colors and textures to soak in. It truly was farm-to-table.

Jewel Tone Wedding Inspiration at The Old Schoolhouse

A restored schoolhouse in Newberg, Oregon served as the inspiration for this shoot styled by J29 Events and photographed by Gabriela Ines, and we’re completely obsessed. You’ll find romance and drama in the vibrant colors of crimson and cobalt (getting us in the right mood for our weekend festivities!), blooms from Ponderosa and Thyme, and a to-die-for canopy of peacock feathers! There’s much more to see in the full gallery right here!


From Gabriela Ines PhotographyThe inspiration for this shoot came from the venue itself. The Old Schoolhouse is a gorgeous and unique new venue in the Portland, OR area. I was inspired by its dramatic and enchanting look and wanted to style a shoot that showcased the venue’s original features. Nicole from J29 events ran with the idea of jewel tones and created a beautiful scene that included a tablescape full of color and lush foliage from Ponderosa and Thyme. The dramatic and elegant look of this shoot highlighted the authenticity of this repurposed Oregon venue.

Romantic Rustic Wedding Inspiration

In my option, styled shoots are something be behold. You see, not only are they beautiful beyond measure, but they also add some major inspo by pushing the style envelope. Like this pretty that redefines rustic with gorgeous garlands and organic elements. It’s an editorial that has us pinning, and Josselyn Peterson has it all waiting for you in the gallery!

From Josselyn Peterson PhotographerThis styled shoot was to inspire couples to push their rustic wedding into something above and beyond. We used a rustic, wooden farm table with wooden crossback chairs to give it a rustic feel, but then added tapered candles, gold accents, and more formal florals to give it a more romantic feel. While as a photographer I love outdoor weddings and receptions, staging this beautiful table in front of a grand stone fireplace in a lodge with clean lines and large windows letting in wonderful natural light to give the table warmth and an intimate feel. Everything for this styled shoot was put together to give off that refined rustic look with an organic, easy feel. The portraits were done outdoors just as the sun was setting being the mountains to keep that light and airy feeling while maximizing the romance of those last moments of light. I hope you enjoy everything!
