Copper and Marble, Boho Sleek, Greens, and Dreams

So recently we had the opportunity to do a styled shoot. We put it together from the floor up and partnered with some amazing local entreprenuers. We met so many new creative friends and the energy in the room was so intense. This shoot was small but a major event for us. We all really enjoyed every second of getting to know these local creative small business owners and seeing the production through from beginning to end. Literally every second was satisfying and terrifying. What a blast!

Thanks so much to each of our vendors for all your knowledge, creativity, and help. We made a beautiful set and some gorgeous pictures. Please check everyone of these people out working with them was amazing.

This gravity defying shot of our Copper and Marble inspired tablescape leaves us breathless. We were definitely gasping at the skill exhibitted by the wonderfully talented photography team
These Boho inspired braids perfected by Tana Britton of Portland Makup and Hair eeded only a few simple greens for embellishment to be wedding march ready.
A handpainted, copper and white cake decorayed in chic white roses and greens was a perfect choice for this palette. The blues of the succulents and hand painted macarons pop so enticingly next to it. Mama Jen did an amazing job layering the nutty almond her her classic Vanilla and her Chocolate was deep, rich, and unforgettable!
Collaborating on these details was so much fun! The paper suite, the dishes, the flower bud, the macaron all come together to make this gorgeous moment.
Jill Steenson photographer extraordinaire.
The scrumptious and hand painted macarons made by Mamas Artisan Sweets compliment the elegant invitation suite provided by Wonderment Paper.
Who could help falling in love with these two, especially in this setting.
Delectable cookie sandwiches were among the many fantastic eats Mama’s Artisan Sweets contributed. They made a perfect display for the accent flowers given to us by Lou and You Florals.
This table is by far our favorite thing of all. From the details on the silverware Tendue had on hand to the swathes of green and round candles. Not to mention the delicate blue table linens handmade by Bella Angel Boutique . The whole thing set off perfectly with rosy metallics and a rustic yet modern table.
This elegant yet simple combination of white roses and peonys accentuated by greens and eucalyptus with a touch of smokey blue not only looked heavenly but smelled like a spring garden. Also Tendue’s chairs are so charming and we couldn’t get enough shots of them.
Gorgeous marble was a stylish base for pops of blue and bright copper.
Tendue was well suited for this metallic and marble shoot. Its rustic furnishings softened by linens from Bella Angel Boutique made the perfect setting for Mama Jen’s fabulous hand painted and decorated deserts. The white and blush roses add the crowning touch to a sumptuous dessert buffet.
This couple were not only gorgeous together and very professional but also so funny. We are still not over how Joey and Chris managed to capture the boho vibe we were looking for immediately. Not to mention look at that hair it was practically made for this color scheme.
This lavish invitation suite brought to us by Wonderment Paper makes the perfect preview to a resplendent event full of greens and rosey copper tones.
The sign says love at first bite and it was. We tried every item personally and they were all exquisite. Accented with the blue toned succulents and greens you could not go wrong with this dessert spread.
The details make this setting. The ornate tableware, the brush of copper on the macaron, the grand style of the menu. Simply divine.
The candles lit up this opulent table perfectly. We are still wowed at the details of this setting.
The giant windows at Tendue sent all of us dancing with joy. Joey and Chris made it look dazzling with ease.
Did we mention Tendue’s chairs? These flowers too! So magical!
The perfect spot for a quiet cup of tea to soothe your nerves before or your throat after.
The nuetral and rosy pinks on Joey’s eyes and cheeks perfectly illustrated the boho feel we were going for. Thanks so much to M.U.A. Stephanie Chavez.
