Earlier this fall, I had the pleasure of designing wedding flowers for a sweet couple, Catherine and Jack, for their small, intimate wedding that took place at the Forrest Lodge in Rhododendron, Oregon. The Forrest Lodge is a mountain cabin vacation rental nestled among the old growth trees of the Mount Hood National Forest. It features all wood interior, massive round beveled-glass windows with gorgeous views of the surrounding forest, a hand built stone chimney, a wooden patio with a hot tub and sauna, a huge gourmet kitchen, and enough bedrooms to sleep 12. Props to Catherine and Jack on their great idea to rent a vacation rental cabin for their intimate wedding venue!

The day of the wedding was raining so Catherine and Jack opted for their ceremony to take place inside in the main room of the cabin in front of the hand built stone fireplace and the large windows. The views of the forest and the natural lighting from the windows made for a gorgeous wedding setting. In front of the fireplace, I installed a large floral installation on an A-frame wedding arbor built by the father of the bride. The A-frame arbor matched the dark wood beams of the cabin as well as the A-frame shape of the cabin itself. Above the altar area hung a unique chandelier made of antlers, which vibes perfectly in the forest setting!

Typical to Oregon weather, the rain stopped and graciously allowed the couple and their bridal party to take beautiful photos outside in the forest. Photos were taken by Brianna Swan, who specializes in elopement and intimate wedding photography. Catherine wore a beautiful bridal gown from Blue Sky Bridal, an eco-conscious consignment bridal shop in Portland that offers new, once-worn, and sample bridal gowns for discounted prices. She also wore a pretty amazing veil fit for a fairy tale princess! Jack and his groomsmen wore custom suits from Indochino, a men’s clothing store in Portland.

The bridesmaids each wore a different style bridesmaid dress or romper in burgundy. Personally, I’m a big fan of rompers and think the addition in the wedding party attire was adorable! Hair and Makeup was done by the Portland based Hair and Makeup artist Blush N Bride. The wedding was officiated by Theresa Tuffli of Heart Rock Ceremonies. The small reception after the ceremony was catered by Busy Bee Catering.

The colors of the wedding were white, ivory, soft blush pink, sage green and burgundy. Flowers by Alana designed the bridal party bouquets and boutonnieres, a large floral installation on an A-frame arbor for the ceremony altar, family boutonnieres and corsages, cake flowers, and a few centerpieces for their small, intimate reception following the ceremony. The flowers I used were white hydrangea, Sweet Escimo blush roses, White Ohara garden roses, ivory Vendela roses, white scabiosa, white astilbe, chocolate brown cosmos, burgundy dahlias, eucalyptus in both seeded and silver dollar varieties, and Italian ruscus.

Summer Outdoor Wedding in Pastel Colors at Sunriver Resort in Sunriver, Oregon

For many engaged couples, getting married in 2020 meant scaling down their guest count and wedding sizes to fit within certain county guidelines due to Covid-19. Sunriver, Oregon was within one of the Oregon counties allowing larger guest counts this summer, which meant Conner and Monica could have their dream wedding without postponing and Flowers by Alana was honored to travel from Portland to Sunriver to be their wedding florist. Their wedding photos (and all photos on this blog post) were taken by the talented wedding photographer Carsten Tice and their wedding videography was done by Ivy Pacific Northwest. Their wedding was planned and coordinated by The Indigo Bride and their wedding took place at the gorgeous Sunriver Resort wedding venue near Bend, Oregon.

Monica and I connected over ZOOM several weeks before her wedding, and I immediately loved her warm cheerful spirit as she share her dream wedding vision. Her chosen wedding palette was soft pastels and her favorite floral style was elegant and romantic with a ton of lush, Northwest greenery, which was very synchronous to my personal floral design style! For her gorgeous bridal bouquet, I used white hydrangea, garden roses in blush, peach, and ivory, pale blue nigella, seeded eucalyptus, and Italian ruscus greenery. It truly was stunning in soft colors and rich textures in seeds, foliage, and petals!

Her bridesmaids wore floor-length, dusty blue bridesmaid gowns in various styles and strappy white sandals. They carried bridesmaid bouquets I designed with pale blue hydrangea, blush roses and garden roses, creamy Ivory vendela roses, and silver dollar eucalyptus. Monica wore a gorgeous bridal gown from Made with Love Bridal, an Australian based online luxury bridal shop, and her hair and makeup was done by Cassidy Elise. Conner and all the groomsmen wore grey suits from Men’s Warehouse, with Conner in a pale blue bowtie and his groomsmen in pale blue neck ties. I designed their boutonnieres with peach colored ranunculus, pale blue nigella, and seeded eucalyptus.

Monica and Conner were married beneath a large wedding tent draped overhead with gorgeous white stretch fabric, rented by Curated Event Rentals. Their wedding altar was a wooden arbor (made by one of her bridesmaids!) that I draped in white chiffon and designed on site an altar installation in their pastel wedding palette of ivory, blush, pale peach, and soft blue florals. I used hydrangea in pale blue and white, creamy vendela roses, blush and peach garden roses, peach hypericum berries, peach stock flower, seeded and silver dollar eucalyptus, and Italian ruscus greenery.

At the entrance of their wedding aisle were two wine barrel arrangements in similar flowers to the altar installation with pale blue and white hydrangea, Vendela roses, blush garden roses, peach hypericum berries, and seeded eucalyptus and vining Italian ruscus draping over the wine barrels.

At the reception, guest tables were dressed with linens from BBJ Linens and each table held a wooden table number sign, several glass votive candle holders rented from Curated Event Rentals and three different looks for decor. Some of the round tables held votives and a medium sized floral centerpiece I designed with a lot of seeded and silver dollar eucalyptus, hydrangea, Vendela roses, garden roses, stock and hypericum berries. The other round tables were decorated with three different heights of glass hurricanes filled with white pillar candles and surrounded by loose eucalyptus greenery. The rectangular reception tables had long vining Italian ruscus greenery and small, miniature bouquets of matching florals in rented blue glass goblets. The reception area also featured gorgeous bistro lights rented by Illuminate Your Night. Their white two-tiered wedding cake was made by Ida’s Cupcake Cafe with locations in Bend and Redmond. The cake was topped with seeded eucalyptus, peach garden roses and spray roses, and pale blue nigella flowers.

A Jewel-toned Wedding Styled Shoot at Eola Hills Legacy Estates Vineyard in Salem, Oregon

Happy Autumn, flower lovers! I love everything about the fall, especially the color palettes! Admittedly, this outdoor vineyard wedding styled shoot was shot in the middle of summer, but I think you’ll agree that the warm, jewel toned color palette shouts, “it’s fall, y’all!” or at least suggests that autumn is coming!

This shoot featured the talented work of three different Oregon wedding photographers, Emily Skye Photography, Alisha Hale Photography, and Ashley Masters Photography. To not confuse each of their individual photography styles, I’m going to feature each photographer separately in a series of different blog posts. Today, we’ll exclusively feature Emily Skye Photography, so all the photos on this post are Emily Skye’s work. Stay tuned for subsequent blog posts with incredible images from this jewel-toned vineyard wedding styled shoot by the other photographers, Alisha Hale and Ashley Masters. This styled shoot was also captured by Oregon wedding videographer Shane Wall of Valley Trademark. His video will be featured in a separate blog post to come as well!

We set this styled shoot at the gorgeous vineyard wedding venue and winery tasting site Legacy Estate Vineyard (of Eola Hills Winery) in Salem, Oregon. If you like wine tasting, I encourage you to visit their tasting room which is open 1-6pm daily and features delicious Oregon wine from Eola Hills Winery. The spectacular views of lush, rolling hills and pristine rows of grapevines surrounding the vineyard will take your breath away as you sip delicious wine on their large patio or from the other relaxing spots under oak trees around the vineyard. Its an absolutely gorgeous place for an outdoor wedding! They have a sweet little pond with a deck next to a lush green lawn, and several spots just perfect for a wedding ceremony and reception.

The styled shoot was coordinated and styled by the talented Krystle Clear Events, whom I’ve had the honor and pleasure of working alongside many weddings and styled shoots over the past few years. Her attention to detail, warm and friendly demeanor, and creativity make every event (whether its a real wedding or a styled shoot) run smoothly, stress-free, and sure to be styled beautifully. I definitely recommend reaching out to her if you are planning an Oregon wedding or anywhere in the Pacific Northwest! I’ve said it numerous times, but I can’t stress it enough: wedding coordinators are absolutely worth it! They remove so much stress and pressure from the couple, provide invaluable knowledge and wedding tips, help execute a wedding vision into reality, and can often save you money overall.

We chose the color palette of warm jewel tones to mimic the beautiful sunset colors often witnessed at the vineyard. Our palette included orange, burgundy, blue-ish purple, and teal. We also brought in vintage elements to the styled shoot with the rented decor accents. All the colors of our styled shoot palette are beautifully displayed on our rectangle reception tablescape, which we chose to shoot nestled in an oak tree grove surrounded by rows and rows of grapevines. For the Love of Pete Rental company in Salem, Oregon supplied the gold colored vintage compote urns I used for floral centerpieces down the 6-top reception table. They also supplied the teal tinted glass goblets, gold chargers, and napkins and a chiffon runner, both in rich burgundy. A table number card as well as a nametag was beautifully printed by the talented wedding stationery artist Blue Bonsai Printing, who also created gorgeous wedding invites for the styled shoot.

Desserts were provided by Nothing Bundt Cakes in Clackamas, Oregon. If you’ve never had Nothing Bundt Cake, I seriously suggest you get on that, pronto. They work well for everyday treats as well as wedding cakes, because they come in various sized cakes in delicious flavors and are aesthetically beautiful with their simple icing. We used their mini cakes in colors that matched the styled shoot palette in red velvet and lemon.

Our models, Grace and Taylor, were a real life couple who fit the look perfectly of our shoot and were very fun to work with. Our stunning bride model, Grace happens to be International Ms. Oregon 2020! Her makeup was professionally done by the wedding makeup and hair artist, Morgan Nichols. Taylor wore a burgundy suit from The Black Tux and Grace wore a bridal gown from Adorned in Grace Bridal and Formalwear Shop, a bridal shop that sells new and gently used wedding dresses and accessories at discount pricing and supports a really great cause! The proceeds of every sale at Adorned in Grace go toward the awareness and prevention of sex trafficking as well as crisis prevention and support for sex trafficking survivors.

We staged a ceremony on the lawn near the lake which included a cute wooden house-shaped arbor rented from For the Love of Pete. I installed a floral installation in two spots on the wooden wedding arbor in the color palette of the shoot. I included blue hydrangea, orange roses, burgundy and brown amaranthus, blue thistle, eucalyptus, burgundy and orange dahlias, and italian ruscus. We also staged a sweetheart table look near the ceremony site, which included large vintage red velvet chairs.

A beautiful and intimate outdoor wedding on Sauvie’s Island in Portland, OR

For Stephanie and Robert, like many other engaged couples planning 2020 weddings, their wedding plans changed multiple times this year. Initially they planned a Spring wedding and reception party at Cooper’s Hall, an urban winery, taproom and wedding venue in the heart of SE Portland. As the weeks drew nearer to their date, it became apparent that the Covid-19 pandemic would be effecting travel of their guests and restricting the gathering size of the wedding venue, so they postponed their date to July. As July grew nearer and the restrictions on wedding parties not changing much, the determined couple switched gears and decided on having an intimate outdoor wedding ceremony at a beautiful park setting with close friends this summer, and postponing their larger reception at the winery and taproom for next year.

I was honored to be able to provide gorgeous florals for their scaled down intimate event. Instead of florals for the whole bridal party and any for the ceremony, the couple chose a small elopement package of a bridal bouquet and boutonniere for their intimate wedding. Their wedding palette was peach, coral, blush, ivory, and soft sage green, which looked amazing next to his rich, slate blue groom’s suit, her beautiful ivory bridal gown, and the beautiful natural green background of farmland and forested hills surrounding the park.

For flowers, I used peach colored Juliet garden roses, blush colored Keira garden roses, creamy ivory Vendela roses, coral colored ranunculus, peach colored hypericum berries, wide leaf dusty miller, and silver dollar eucalyptus. The style of the bridal bouquet was romantic and elegant with the soft whimsical greenery and soft delicate petals of the garden roses and ranunculus blooms. Robert wore groom’s boutonniere made with a coral ranunculus bloom, dusty miller leaf, peach hypericum berry and a bit of eucalyptus greenery.

Stephanie and Robert gathered their close friends and had their intimate wedding ceremony at the beautiful Howell Territorial Park, a 120-acre park nestled among farmland on Sauvie’s Island in NW Portland. With the Covid-19 pandemic happening, guests were asked to wear masks and socially distance. Unfortunately their parents weren’t able to travel and attend in person, but they attended virtually on Zoom!

Stephanie had her bridal hair done beautifully by Dosia Karpinska at A-List Hair Studio in the Pearl District in NW Portland. The talented and beautiful makeup artist (who’s also my first cousin!) Kabrina Baldwin Bergen did a wonderful job on Stephanie’s bridal makeup. The stunning photography was done by Kate Holt Photography. After the intimate wedding ceremony, they enjoyed delicious food catered from Mediterranean Exploration Company and wine from Vinopolis Wineshop.

I’m so glad this sweet couple was still able to have a beautiful wedding and make lasting memories while making their marriage official in 2020, even amid a worldwide pandemic. I very much look forward to being a part of their second celebration and providing gorgeous flowers for their larger reception taking place in 2021 at Cooper’s Hall!

Wedding on Wheels, take two: an Urban Hipster Elopement shoot in Portland, Oregon

The Wedding on Wheels team is back for another fun elopement styled shoot, this time with an urban, hipster vibe featuring the star of the show, Aspynn~ a dark, forest green teardrop trailer owned by Oregon Teardrop Rentals. She is available to rent for your next northwest camping adventure, and is one of the three teardrop trailer options currently available for your Wedding on Wheels elopement package, where you can get a teardrop trailer, wedding flowers, wedding cake or desserts, and wedding photographer all delivered to your elopement or intimate wedding site!

For a different vibe than the last outdoorsy Wedding on Wheels shoot, we chose an urban setting in industrial SE Portland with a private concrete parking lot cornered by two brick walls. Photography was done by Crystal Genes Photography, a talented wedding photography who also founded the NW Wedding Underground, a website that features an incredible collection of wedding vendors in the Pacific Northwest, through styled shoots and video interviews. View the Flowers by Alana video interview on NW Wedding Underground!

Bridal hair was done by Hair by Eira, and bridal makeup was done by Kerrin Birchenough. The bride model wore a vintage dress borrowed from the cool thrift store Shwop in the Sellwood neighborhood of SE Portland. Shwop isn’t your average thrift store, its a really neat store where you have the option to join a membership and members can exchange (aka “shwop”) out clothing items and accessories for any item in the store (non-members can also shop resale items at great prices! Shwop has a small but unique wedding dress selection and the charming owner, Marci can often tell you amazing stories about the wedding dress’ original owner! Both the bride and groom models wore sneakers also borrowed from Shwop! Luck was on our side that they had almost brand new mint green Converse in the groom’s size, that matched the shoot perfectly!

We partnered with Rogue to feature their canned cocktails that matched the shoot colors of pink and lime green. Rogue is a Portland-based beer brewing company that traditionally brews beer, but are now also crafting really delicious cocktails in cans with unique flavor combinations, like Cucumber Lime Gin Fizz and Cranberry Elderflower Vodka Soda, as well as CBD seltzer!

For this shoot, I designed a classic cluster bouquet in whites, lime greens, blush and bubblegum pink, using cafe au lait dahlias, white dahlias, pink roses, lime green roses, blushing bride protea, white veronica, lime green hydrangea, and seeded eucalyptus. The bouquet was tied with a long lime green ribbon from Joann Fabrics.

I decorated the dessert and drink area (the back of the teardrop trailer) with greenery and floral clusters, and created a floral installation on the brick wall to serve as our wedding altar. If you know me personally, you’ll know that I thrive on personal challenges and creative endeavors. I had never done an installation on a brick wall, but I was up for the challenge and absolutely love how it turned out, although it was super windy during set-up and quite frustrating figuring out the mechanics of the install! (Pro tip: brick clips found at Lowe’s Home Improvement stores are essential hardware for brick wall installations.)

It was so windy, a tree actually fell down in the alley that extended from the corner of our site, almost landing on the trailer! It was almost serendipitous, though because of how well it looked aesthetically with our shoot! We added fun accents to the shoot like a large black and white striped area rug and a white metal bistro table and chairs for the couple to cheers with their yummy canned cocktails and enjoy a donut together next to Aspynn.
