Urban Tropical Shoot
I loved everything about this shoot! Whitney and I had worked together before at a wedding. So when the opportunity can up for me to do a styled shoot for her I was so excited. Whitney and her team put this whole shoot together and it came together perfectly.
Here is what Whitney had to say about the shoot:
When pulling inspiration for our shoot at the beautiful Exchange Ballroom in Portland, we decided we wanted to come up with a design that put a clean and modern spin on the popular rustic farm table. The farm table, placed in the urban loft setting of The Exchange Ballroom, paired with the ghost chairs and modern tabletop elements from The Party Place, was such a fun contrast. We wanted the color pallet to be bright and cheery with a tropical citrus flair. When starting with a tabletop design I always look at linens first for direction. We fell in love with the combination of the pink printed runner and chartreuse napkins from La Tavola, and Ali Briskey Designs’ lush floral really tied everything together! Paper goods set the tone and are such an important element to round out a design. Our paper and banners designed by See Level Design Co. were modern yet had a really fun whimsical personality to them! We sourced the adorable tassels on each napkin as well as the bride’s necklace from Ashwood Avenue. The tassels brought just the little touch of wood we needed to coordinate with the farm table. Last but definitely not least- dessert! When searching for a food/dessert element, we knew that Rawdacious’ bright cakes were the perfect fit. Their colors and textures tied in nicely with our linens, and not to mention they are vegan and delicious! Enjoy!
After the shoot we had sometime to get a few shots of our lovely models with their adorable baby girl. Isn’t she cute?!?
None of this shoot would have been possible without all of the hard work and creativity of these lovely and amazing ladies.
