Marsala, we love you so. Today’s styled wedding shoot features this beautiful color of the year, and plays host to not one but two beautiful looks for the couple — one more traditional, and one with a bright crimson gown for the bride and a deep wine colored shirt for the groom. Thank you to the team including Christa-Taylor, Bridal Bliss Coordination, and Bramble Floral for your work on this one!
From the photographer, Christa-Taylor: Family vineyards line the rolling hills of Oregon’s wine country in Newberg and seemed the perfect inspiration for this shoot. Marsala, burgundy, blush and even vibrant scarlet combined to create a rich palette that give brides another take on their wedding day inspiration. Saturated paired with soft pastels was the perfect balance for this wedding shoot.
Bramble Floral brought together a stunning array of wildflowers, dahlias and fresh dogwood to highlight current blooms and bring the outdoors in. Antique brass urns were the perfect flower receptacles and a nod to the former era, each with a story of their own. It was important to the team to demonstrate how to elevate a simple space into something romantic and glamorous so we really brought in the drama with Greenlight Creative light backdrops and Stephanie Dong’s couture wedding gowns. The gilt edged plate ware and posh seating from Classic Vintage Rentals continued that vein.
Devils Food Catering really brought refinement and elegance to their plating, with keen attention to details. Locally sourced and in-season produce are their passion with vibrant colors that matched our theme, including the raspberry macaroons favors. The naked red-velvet cake was the perfect finish to our menu created by Portland’s favorite Dream Cakes bakery. With plenty of window light, we completed the shoot against a book page backdrop for some fun. This remarkably easy Photo-Booth DIY, is something a bride could create for her own day using spray adhesive and a couple of old classics. An “old schoolhouse” should surely have some tribute to great literature ;)
