What is it about sunflowers that make the whole room get a little brighter, a little warmer, and a little happier? We're not completely sure what it is, but whatever it is, we are sold. Adding sunflowers to this sunny Portland affair, planned by Bridal Bliss, was hands down the best choice the couple and Punch Portland could have made. It created an air of relaxed elegance that Deyla Huss Photography was able to capture brilliantly. And the best part? Your afternoon just got a whole lot sunnier in the gallery!
What I wanted was country elegance, we are both very "outdoorsy" people so we wanted those elements to run through the wedding. Everything was very "organic and home-made" in my opinion. Personal touches were super important to us since because the venue was so elegant, but we wanted to make it comfortable.

What inspired our decor was vintage/eclectic/natural elements. I loved the vintage mercury glass mixed with the beer bottles wrapped in twine, and the flash of the blue robins eggs. The flower arrangements I wanted to have the same natural feel with the look of wildflowers put together in an arranged yet un-arranged look. I like things to be a little imperfect. Sunflowers were always a must, so we just started to build off that wildflower idea with the florist, with the other eclectic elements, it was like they took the image out of my imagination and put it to life, it was the perfect florist for my vision.

Kody and I met our Junior year of high school so in a way we have grown up together, which made the moment even more amazing since its been in the making for almost eight years.
