aug29Jess and Sam are getting married! Their color scheme will be pink, orange with hints to lime. They plan on having a fun and youthful early afternoon outdoor celebration held in a nearby park. They need a little inspiration for the reception and clothing. Luckily, the bride has been saving pictures of her dream ceremony for a while. Thus, the ceremony has already been decided. They requested an unpretentious design with clean lines. Nothing about this board says boring or mundane. This is a going to be a festive fete with a focus on the little details.

Colors: pink, orange and pops of lime
Theme: youthful, modern and fun

pink orange and lime

Top Row: Fluffy Pink Ranunculus Boutonniere; Personalized Jones Soda; Short Silk Bridesmaid Dresses
Middle Row: Rock Candy Decor; Tiered Cake, Groomsmen Ties
Bottom Row: Low key centerpieces; Balloons; Poppies and Grass

Does the rock candy bring you back to your childhood? How about the giant balloons? To create a “ceiling” for the outdoor space, adding balloons will help make an outdoor space feel more intimate. The personalized soda labels are a great way to add a peronal touch to a favor. This can also serve as a escort card. If you don’t want to pay for the customized price, create your own labels, print and adhere with Zots

These options are a fresh way to bring back elements of your childhood without making it look like a birthday party.

jun28Living in Portland, a popular mode of transportation is to go by bike. I am also one jumping..err…riding on the proverbial bandwagon and using a bike as my preferred transport.  It doesn’t seem like I am the only one. According to Portland Sugar, we have “more bicycles on the road per capita”. Interesante. In MSN’s article, Portland is listed at as the Number Two bike-friendly city in the world. If you are a bike enthusiast, or just want to have some fabulous wedding pictures or engagement photo session include a bike as a prop or just go for a spin around the block. Be sure to tell your photographer so he/she will bring the proper camera equipment to capture that moment. Here are a few inspirational pictures for your bike viewing enjoyment.
