Now that spring is quickly slipping into summer, it’s all about garden weddings – and this Garden Tea Party inspired shoot from the creative minds of some of Portland’s top wedding vendors, including photographer Terra Lange and event stylists Something Borrowed, will have you yearning for a greenhouse wedding!
Here’s what they had to say about the shoot:
For this Garden Tea Party styled shoot, we married tradition to trend with a classic tea party setting and an urban nursery backdrop. Using a fresh color palette of pinks and purples, Something Borrowed event styling set an intimate bride and groom’s table with teacups, antique china, gold silverware and a sequin tablecloth. A reconstructed lampshade weaved with greenery was hung above as a chandelier. Hand painted invitations and floral place cards by Rachel Jacobson Calligraphy added a whimsical touch. Among the flower laden organic desserts from Sweetheart were Grapefruit Pistachio Halva Tarts with Strawberry-fig Jam, and Passionfruit Vanilla Bean Cream Puffs with Hibiscus Rose Frosting. Our bride wore a lace and chiffon Claire LaFaye gown and held an over-sized bouquet of fresh cream, pink and purple blooms by Zest Floral Design. Renee Bruhn paired vintage and vogue with fingerwaves swept into a low side ponytail and pinned with antique jewelry handmade by Cottage Queens. A clean face with pink cheeks and lips offset by dramatic eyes completed the bride’s look. We were delighted to find a lush garden and greenhouse filled with exotic plants tucked into NW Portland’s industrial area near the Fremont Bridge. Pomarius Nursery was the perfect location for our photographer Terra Lange and videographer Jenn Byrne to capture our inspiration!
