Mid Century Elegant Wedding Ideas



























Anyone who has even been to Oregon knows the sheer beauty that is found everywhere. Portland is a beautiful city with an amazing history, and its incredible architecture stands testament. I fell in love with the Manor House and Estate Gardens at Lewis & Clark College; it’s stone stairways, carved fountains, and of course the incredible views of beautiful Mt. Hood in the background.

With this editorial, I aimed to capture that impeccable elegance of turn of the century Portland. Invitations addressed in gold calligraphy on soft cotton paper. A bride in her grandmothers diamonds, walking barefoot by candle light through her families gardens. The intimate dinner table set at the foot of a carved stone fountain. A couple walking together up the stairs after dinner, sipping on champagne before they slip into their honeymoon suite.
