This wedding rocks my socks off. I have been patiently waiting for Rachel Thurston to send me these images, and the wait paid off! Haylie and Ross had a beautiful Paris inspired wedding in the coolest city of the United States, Portland, Oregon. Their distinct style makes it effortlessly chic. They had a vintage typewriter for guests to type their well wishes, and French botanical touches made their Paris inspired wedding one of my favorites yet! Photos by Rachel Thurston.

    just came across your wedding while doing a bit of browsing for ideas for my own. It looked beautiful! I was wondering if you may be able to email me the haiku form...I love the idea! Thanks indeed. Jen

    I would love the Haiku form if you don't mind sharing (stealing) you idea? chaispicetea@yahoo.com Thanks! Jasper

    I'm Haylie's cousin, thanks for the compliments on the dress! I designed it with the help of some pretty pictures and an excellent seamstress. Since I don't see how I can get away with wearing it again =) I am open to offers to buy it. Email me if you are interested... brittanyjmann@gmail.com.

    great style and photos!

    Hello again, My fiance-cum-husband designed our haiku forms after we saw that idea done at a live taping of a radio show, but we could email the form to you if you want. As for the dress, I actually borrowed it from my exceptionally stylish cousin after she designed it with a dressmaker for her wedding. Good luck on the sleeved-dress search. That one's hard.

    Haylie - gorgeous photos! In your search, did you find many dresses with sleeves? I love your choice. Are you willing to share the designer or any others that were runners up?

    haylie! Adorable wedding. I saw the "Go By Streetcar" sign and said, Oh they're in Portland! Me too and was seriously considering the Eco Trust for that exact balcony spot (now I'm second-guessing my choice to have our wedding at home!) Did you make those Haiku forms or can I buy or print them from somewhere??

    Ok, the dress - who is the designer/where was it purchased? I am trying my hardest to find some cute sleeve wedding dress options. You're wedding was gorgeous! Congrats.

    Hey! Thanks for all the nice comments, guys. It's a little surreal to see our wedding on a blog, since I looked at so many for so long. The shoes are from a fabulous company called Ruche, and they're really, really comfortable. Hope that helps!

    I think those ruffled t strap shoes are Steve Madden's.
  • akmscout99 on October 26, 2009

    What brand are those shoes? Where did they come from? I just love them!! I'm looking for just that look for my "one day".

    OMG, I love this wedding, what a cool couple!
  • Kate-Emerald Weddings on October 26, 2009

    I love all the colors and the favors are so divine! This wedding seems to speak to the couple's personalities very well.

    LOVE Haylie's pumpkin-colored sweater and the rest of the coordinating accents. Their bird motif is darling. Stylish and fun wedding!
