With the encouragement of fellow team members we embarked on our first styled inspiration photoshoot. These styled shoots allows us the opportunity to do something different, work with new vendors and/or allows us to hone our craft.
We wanted to do something non-traditional yet design with the flexibility to incorporate for any season whether it be spring, summer, fall or winter. The location chosen was one that we had the opportunity to plan an event at a couple years back with Jill & Christian’s wedding. Its a gorgeous private lakeside property nestled in the Oregon wine country. Being a fan of copper, we decided to build the design around that metal material. It’s such a cool element. As a stand-alone it can be bold and dramatic while blending the copper helps to soften the look giving it a subtle texture. The lakeside surrounding with its copper tones truly embodied this design concept.
Elizabeth Dye’s chartreuse Valetta wedding gown added the perfect non-traditional touch. Although it was a colored gown, the design was soft and flowy giving it a feminine, elegant feel; a truly timeless look. The floral team at French Lilac Co. incorporated bold fuchsia roses while softening the impact with peach color, copper tones, and natural textures. Rental decor provided by The Party Place of wood, glass and silver hammered elements was a perfect pairing with the copper metal. While the surrounding lended itself to a rustic feel, the clean lines of the modern asymmetrical cake by Lux Sucre Desserts gave the overall look another layer of versatility.
Many thanks to our models, Jen & Nick. And a special thanks to Blossom & Beauty for Jen’s hair & make-up, Kyle Carnes Photography for expertly documenting the shoot and Caleb O’Halloran of NW Creatives for the video documentary.
