I’m so excited to be able to share this photo shoot with you all, because it’s a new favorite! It’s the shoot for MarryThis! Guide 05: The Chic All-White Wedding, which was just released today. It’s so fun to get to work on these guides with such a great team and such amazing vendors.
We put together this shoot on-site at the DeSoto Rooftop Terrace, owned by the Art of Catering in Portland. They do amazing work, and this space, tucked onto a beautiful rooftop in Old Town, is really a stunning wedding site. It’s quiet, it’s intimate and I loved working there.
Have you seen these heirloom-quality ringbearer bowls by Paloma’s Nest? This one is called the Calligraphy Ring Bearer Bowl. They are really beautiful, and delicate but sturdy when you hold them. I totally want one even though I’m already married.
Our invitations came from Love Vs. Design (they offer a printable PDF as an invite option, which is a pretty great way to save money and still have chic invites). The hair accessories (above, right) are from Serephine.
I worked with Ferntree Flowers to get this gorgeous bridal bouquet lined up. Isn’t it awesome? They make a great assortment of paper flowers. One of the things that makes this wedding really unique is that we used no real flowers in the making of it. It’s a great way to save some cash and to be able to hang on to something from your wedding after it’s all over.
The Art of Catering provided a gorgeous appetizer spread for this wedding — above, a gravlax morsel atop rice. I can vouch — this was super delicious.
Our rentals (tables, chairs, plates, glassware and flatware) came from The Party Place.
Our dresses (the brides and bridesmaids’) came from Embellish Design & Olivia Luca. The jewelry is from the crazy talented Sahlia Michelle.
A huge thank you to our models — on the left is Margot & Jon, and Margot’s “bridesmaids” are Jordann and Erin (yes, that’s right — Erin of Serephine!) She’s on the right below.
Here’s a little sneak peek from the guide. Check it out here in a little more detail!
