Fall In Love With Details!

We fell hard for this fall wedding and its delightful details.  The colors were toasty warm with vibrant orange lilies, dahlias, roses, and snap dragons.  The many shades of orange were accented by lush green succulents, hydrangeas, hypericum berries, and autumn foliage.  A variety of containers were used to house the stunning floral creations including: vases, urns, mason jars, clay pots, cones, wooden boxes, and lanterns.  Each container was embellished by hand with; burlap ribbon, lace, twine, and charms.  The little details added immensely to the overall look and feel of the wedding; the end result being cozy and classy with an air of romance.

Bouquet Buffet!

Just a quick preview of this weekends’ weddings!  We’ll post in more detail soon, but for now here are some of the beautiful and varied bouquets…enjoy.

Rustic Chic

We are in LOVE with the rustic/country chic looks that are so popular right now.  This fantastic wedding made use of lanterns, mason jars, and lovely little logs, the look was beautiful without being fussy or frilly.  We used dahlias, daisies, stock , aster, orchids, and iris along with a variety of greens, to bring the bride’s vision to life.

Amanda’s Abernethy Wedding.

If you want the perfect setting for a garden wedding, stay local and check out the Abernethy Center in Oregon City.  They have two outdoor ceremony sites as well as a newly built chapel and elegant ballroom, check them out at or

Our lovely bride Amanda was married in the Abernethy’s Veiled Garden, which suited her garden style flowers perfectly.  Her colors were a vibrant purple, hydrangea blue, and sunny yellow.  Here are a few pictures for you to enjoy.

Highland Flare

We recently did a gorgeous wedding at the Abernethy Center,  It had an awesome highland flare including some very handsome kilt clad gentlemen.  Here are some pictures courtesy of the fabulous Persimmon Images,  The flowers were an assortment a sweet smells and great shapes.  We used: thistle, freesia, sweet pea, lisianthus, blue Bella Donna, snap dragons, bupleurum, and bells of Ireland to create the slightly wild feel that brings to mind the rugged beauty of Scotland.  We hope you enjoy!

The Ainsworth House & Gardens, A Stunning Local Venue!

We are incredibly excited to announce that we are now a preferred vendor for the Ainsworth House & Gardens.  With nearly 3,000 square feet of indoor reception space as well as lush outdoor ceremony sites, the Ainsworth House is the perfect place for any event, and can accommodate  up to 125 guests.  This decadent venue is tucked away on two immaculate acres in a quiet Oregon City neighborhood; far from the noise of busy streets yet just a quick commute from anywhere in the Portland area.  Our studio is located less than two miles from The Ainsworth house, and we are happy to do onsite consultations at the venue.

The house itself has a rich history, and was originally built in 1851 on an 18 acre site.  Over the years, the house has been added to, with a major addition being put on in 1851, and then the bay windows between 1910 and 1920.  The house maintained all 18 acres until 1990, when the then-owners began selling off extra land for development. The house currently has just over 2 acres and is protected by being on the National Historical Registry.

Wonderful Wires

Over the weekend we had an amazing opportunity to get creative while working on a stunning wedding.  Our beautiful bride Lori chose a look that was incredibly unique and sophisticated at the same time.  The bouquets used primarily orchids and calla lilies; the bride’s was a modern cascade accented with crystal beading.  For the bridesmaids, we created a black wire “cloud” and worked the orchids and calla lilies into it.   Three different styles of centerpieces were used: a low bowl filled with black wire and eggplant calla lilies, a medium collared vase filled with black wire and green hydrangea, and a tall trumpet vase filled with black willow, green hydrangea, and eggplant calla lilies, we hung orchids chains and candles from the willow branches for a dramatic touch.  The alter was embellished with sweeping white sheers, hanging candles, hanging crystals, and hanging flowers.  Finally we created a swirl pattern on the aisle using ivory rose petals.  Bringing Lori’s vision to life was an absolute pleasure, and her wedding will be remembered for years to come!

In addition to letting our creativity run wild we also had the chance to work with Premiere Catering, one of our favorite local caterers.  If your looking for amazing food, professionalism, and great prices be sure to check them out at or “like” them on Facebook at

Versatile Vintage

The vintage look is very popular right now, and with good reason, it literally goes with anything.  No matter what your venue is like the vintage look can work for you.  It can be dressed up for elegance with some sterling silver candelabras, accented with pearls and lace for romance, or use some mason jars and wood slices for a country chic feel.  We recently purchased several cases of vintage bottles and have been putting them to good use, check out the results!
