We love Day After Sessions as much as we love the cozy feeling of the post-holiday craziness. It’s just you, your brand new spouse, and lots of peace and quiet. The Canadian team Olive Photography and Quill + Oak dreamed up of just that — the intimate and cozy feel of a brunch the day after your wedding. Can you feel that morning light?

When you’re on the west coast, the sunsets are more than just a thing of beauty. In this shoot captured by Josselyn Peterson Photographer, these striking western sunsets are also a point of inspiration for ae creative. With the focal point of this shoot being the environment of central Oregon, Abby from ae creative pulled all of these earthy deep oranges, blush pinks, and warm browns and greens together to make something magical. Florals from Heirloom Floral Design mimicked this color palette, while also adding fun punches of fuchsia, plum, and greenery for some depth. A wonderful thing can happen when you draw wedding inspiration from your hometown and its landscape!
From the event designer, ae creative: Central Oregon has such a beautiful landscape and culture and I wanted that to be reflective in this concept. The landscape, the sunshine, the rocks, trees and dirt is all so beautiful during every season. I wanted to pull those native colors and hues together to create a true Oregon wedding. The bride’s style was inspired by a central Oregon sunset, soft pinks, orange glow and natural beauty. The groom’s attire was inspired by sagebrush, a native central Oregon bush with sage-green small leaves and twiggy stalks growing up in an arid surrounding.

It isn’t every day we see wedding ceremonies with huge floral inspired displays, so we’re pretty excited to bring you this beauty from Casey Brodley Photography and Robert Jensen Floral. Here, bride Rae handcrafted the entire thing herself, manipulating over 2000 balloons into a faux wisteria wonderland. There’s no doubt on our end — the payoff was certainly worth it!
Ever since I was in grade school, I was obsessed with my penmanship. I would not turn in my homework until it was perfect; it drove my mom crazy! I practiced writing every chance I had and eventually fell in love with this art form. Little did I know, it would be the reason I would fall in love with the wedding industry.
