Red for weddings is on trend any time of the year. It’s bold, it’s vibrant- and it’s the color of love. Today’s styled shoot, photographed by Lauryn Kay Photography and styled by Peachy Keen Coordination, LLC, just might have you adding red to your wedding color palette!

Here’s what Cindy Lindsley from Peachy Keen Coordination, LLC had to say about the shoot:

One of the well known pieces of Portland is that it’s weird — like really weird, but we also know how fashion forward our couples can be. So for those spunky couples who are seeking an alternative wedding, what better way than to pull those quirky elements together for a personalized elopement! Accomplished with styling as if our sweet couple eloped at town hall and then had an after party at the brand new Radisson RED Hotel in downtown Portland, you’ll see the unique components that we love about our hipster town in a stunner timeless fashion .. It was important to us that we show couples you can indeed elope at town hall and have a heck of a celebration as well!

Our cake is nearly an exact replica of a few of the walls in the hotel complete with butterflies, reds and oranges, and a touch of modern lines. Rather than focusing on the florals on the cake, they were intentionally created to be muted by designed as white sugar florals and a vibrant pop of color within the entire hotel.

The attire for this inspiration was one of the most fun parts to play with! We adore a timeless look for a bride, but wanted to bring in a bit of funkiness as well and something that a real bride may truly want to elope in. So often we see that experience lost out on when couples elope in the courthouse, but there are adorable options for dresses and handsome suits for the groom. You can still get dressed up for the courthouse. Our dress was easy to move around in with a knee length dress with small straps but also 3D petals that are individually sewn onto the dress. Complete with a birdcage veil, our bride was chic and vintage timeless. Our bridal bouquet was intentionally designed to be petite and not distract from the dress. Our groom on the other hand was decked out as a sophisticated pop of white similar to the cake’s sugar florals. With his white jacket, red shoes, red tie, he was looking fly on the town and particularly in the hotel. There’s no missing him! Together they looked classy while also having an offbeat, untraditional, retro vibe.

Our favorite alternative detail was of course the colorful Sloshy Pops … We also loved our invitation suite which was designed to be minimalist with black and white to match our couple and accessorize in styling with the red florals.
