Glamorous 1920s Portland Wedding

When it comes to a themed wedding, you’re either IN or your OUT. And this couple – photographed to utter perfection by Yasmin Khajavi Photography – is so in that it makes me a little teary eyed. The elegance, the execution, the details…all so entirely lovely, both on theme and in a totally timeless way. While we’ve pulled some of our favorite images here, take some time to enjoy the gallery where 20’s glam reigns Queen.

Event Venue

From Yasmin Khajavi Photography… Kelly and Tony married at LeftBank Annex, a perfect urban venue with large windows, brick, and industrial style. They transformed it into their awesome 20’s style, with old black and white movies playing on the big screen, with cafe lights strung all around. The table signs, guest seating arrangements, drink signs had the perfect font that matched their theme! Their guest sign in book had a polaroid camera for their guests to snap a photo of themselves and sign next to their photo. And also a cute sign that said “Don a Headband and Join Us for a Night of 1920’s Glamour.” Throughout the evening, guests wore the 20’s style sequined headbands, it was adorable! So many guests also dressed to the theme and wore sequins. Kelly’s cake table had a beautiful sequined tablecloth that also tied in perfectly. Kelly’s diamond headpiece was stunning and looked so good on her! It paired perfectly with their faux-fur shawls that both Kelly and her bridesmaids wore. Kelly and Tony got ready at a hotel downtown, the Sentinel, then the whole bridal party along with Kelly and Tony took the street car through the city to their wedding venue! Kelly had beautiful blush umbrellas as back up plan in case of the northwest rain. They had a personalized marquee displayed with their new last name “Forsyth.” Soft candlelights, cafe lights along with the flower displays tied in perfectly! Their caterer bbq’ed their meal right on-site! They took advantage of the flat screen’s that lined the stairs and had “Welcome to the Wedding of Anthony & Kelly” display.

From the Bride… It was really important to me that our wedding be a reflection of both Tony and I. This was not just my wedding, it was OUR wedding, Tony is a film producer and I have a very vintage esthetic so a 1920s Hollywood theme was the perfect fit for our big day! A day that could not have gone any better. It was a beautiful, calm March day, and we were surrounded by so much love. I felt like the most beautiful woman in the world and I married the man of my dreams and had a blast doing it!

Bohemian Portland Wedding Inspiration

What I love about this shoot isn’t quite as obvious as lovely pictures. And lovely they are, it’s really all about the colors. The textures. The feeling of happy, that seems to fill every last photograph. From the wispy gowns to the floral crowns, every last detail – designed by Lavena B. Vintage with photographs by Andie Reavely – is boho chic entirely steal-worthy. More here!


From Andie ReavelyWanderers, adventurers and vagabond: a community of like-minded folk. The idea of the bohemian is undeniably captivating. With this inspired shoot, we wanted to exhibit the whimsical diversity, yet like-mindedness of a bohemian company.

Everything, from the pom-poms, flower crowns, mismatched glassware and recycled bottles made us want to take our shoes off and breath a little bit deeper and laugh a little more freely.

This troupe of artists and creators was a dream to work with— coincidentally embodying the very concept of this shoot inspiration.

Rocky Butte Oregon Anniversary Session

Celebrating love with beautiful photographs beyond a wedding is a must in my book, and I’ll definitely be taking a cue from this sweet duo who marked their two year anniversary with the help of their friend, Faith Teasley. They chose Rocky Butte, an extinct volcanic cinder cone, as the backdrop and the results are breathtaking. Soak it all in here in the gallery.

From Faith Teasley PhotographyCassandra, who just so happens to be my best friend, adores all things European inspired. When we discovered Rocky Butte, an extinct volcanic cinder cone butte in Portland, we knew we had found something special. It’s unique castle like structure and breathtaking views provided a perfect slice of Europe in the Pacific Northwest! Cassandra and Josh are high school sweethearts and have the sweetest story. To celebrate their two-year wedding anniversary, we spent some time documenting their love through fine art film photographs.
