Happy Pride Month! We’re honoring this month with this fantastic shoot with some amazing Portland Vendors! As we announced a few months ago, we are expanding our services to the West Coast! I have spent the last few months networking with so many amazing Portland and Seattle vendors and I am so please to debut our first Collaboration.
I met Jake Moffet back in our theater days in high school. Jake and I were involved in the same theater and journalism programs that I was involved in back in New York! A few college degrees and several years later we realized that not only were we both on the west coast but we were both involved in the World of Weddings. Jake not only is a fab model but is an amazing floral designer for Botanica Floral Design! That was when we knew we just had to get a team together. Leanne Rose and I met through Rising Tide Society and from there the rest just came together!
We knew we wanted to do a New York/Portland Mash up. Since Portland very closely resembles Brooklyn, this wasn’t hard. We brought Old New York styled sophistication through The Groomsman Suit and mashed it up with some trendy vintage rentals through Vintage Meets Modern. After some hard core Googling, we found Elder Hall, which boasts rustic vibes in it’s event space and Boho vibes in the Ned Ludd tent.
Overall this day was incredible! Daniel and Jake were great models, and their love for each other truly showed throughout the shoot. After a grand tour of some of Portland’s most scenic spots, we ended at Elder Hall where I had been busy working on tablescaping and ceremony design. We topped the table with a stunning tropical inspired bouquet from Botanica Floral Design, and got to munch on some Cupcake Jones treats. What more could a planner ask for?
