Event planner Manda Worthington of Mae & Co teamed up with an amazing group of vendors to create this all-white themed wedding inspo! Set in the picturesque Columbia River Gorge in Oregon, Manda chose to design a concept around a monochromatic wedding color palette to no only enhance the natural beauty of the location, but also create a look that stood out amongst the lush greenery. “In our soft ivory design, nothing is competing with one another or feels out of place,” says Manda. “It’s perfect.”
For the shoot, they utilized the Griffin House, which is a gorgeous outdoor venue perched on the cliffs above the Columbia River. They also had Noble Floral Co. design the most stunning ivory-colored floral arch to serve as a ceremony backdrop for portraits. However, while the location was swoon-worthy, Manda says the unique setting didn’t come without it’s challenges. “Our team had to create a thoughtful design that could withstand 70mph wind gusts, says Manda. Adding, “this shoot highlights our commitment to incredible design, even in the toughest weather conditions, to make sure our clients can focus solely on experiencing their dream day.”
Along with the gorgeous outdoor ceremony space, an intimate and romantic tablescape was also created by Manda and her team. The high-end design included diamond flutes, crystal glassware, and white linens and drapery to evoke a light and airy, monochromatic wedding aesthetic. “Every detail amplified the monochromic design, including the luxury stationary from Evergreen Ink,” says Manda.

“We love that this design shows how an intentional color design can amplify a stunning natural backdrop,” says Manda. Adding, “This earthy, monochromatic design was the perfect fit for a Columbia Gorge destination wedding. And if you’re looking for unique ways to elevate an outdoor setting, we hope you find inspiration from this unique design!”
