This Epic Wedding Dress is just One of the Unexpected Colorful Details in this Wedding Shoot


The inspiration from this styled shoot started with a voluminous yellow gown, Zania from Mode Moviani set in Portland’s Everett West, an open industrial venue featuring cool tones, flexible indoor space with natural lighting, and a lovely outdoor patio in the heart of the Pearl District. The color palette featured a unique combination of blackberry, plum, and cool gray tones contrasted with pops of vibrant yellow. Real couple Margaret and Clarke brought everything to life with their joyfully and flirtatious chemistry.

The downtown Portland wedding venue Everett West created a stunning industrial canvas for this creative shoot – Amore Coordination and Songbird Floristry enhanced the polished concrete floors and tall windows with a draped ceremony backdrop in shades of purple and added an ombre floral chandelier to hang over the altar for this stunning real couple!

Floral design featured an abundance of Oregon and California grown flowers like hellebore, tulip, wax flower, craspedia, butterfly ranunculus, anemone, and willow eucalyptus. The bridal bouquet mirrored the subtle asymmetry of Alon Livne’s single-strap gown

The reception tables were decorated with Mid-Century Modern style, with curved back wooden chairs and vibrant yellow napkins to add a 70’s spin. The gorgeous white stoneware china created a geometric place setting with concentric circles, including the personalized menu in Pantone’s Color of the Year, Illuminating Gray. The subtle pop of gray accented the gorgeous Illuminating yellow details throughout the event, tying in stronger accents from the coral, burgundy and orange centerpiece flowers set in long gold trays down the center of the dining table.
