It’s Christmas week + we’re definitely getting into the holiday swing of things, but today’s pretty wedding, captured beautifully by Dylan and Sara Photography, offers us a much needed pause from the yuletide hustle. Emily + Anton’s Clay Pigeon Winery wedding (in Portland, Oregon) epitomized intimate + cozy, with rustic wood elements, bohemian furnishings + sprawling, beautiful floral arrangements. Truly some pretty ideas to take note on if you’re throwing an indoor wedding in 2015! And for those fully in a Christmastime state of mind, don’t you fret: there are still plenty of festive details and a pretty red, green + gold palette if you feel like you just have to find a little bit of holiday eye candy in everything you see this week! Here’s more about their big day from Emily:
I really wanted to get married on a rug. I know that sounds a bit ridiculous, but I designed my wedding based on that. Therefore, we decided to go with “Rustic Bohemian” – I incorporated a Cow Skull with flowers hanging from it as the backdrop of our ceremony, antlers on the tables with gold vases (most of which I found at goodwill) filled with amazing flowers and gold candlesticks. We wanted our wedding to be simple, classy and romantic – it was absolutely perfect.
And we love her greenery + hellebore crown by The Green Dandelion!
There were so many memorable memories – marrying my best friend, being in the same room with everyone we love most – but I would have to say the speeches were amazing – especially my 12 year old nephew (and best man) Gavin.
Need a little guestbook inspiration? How about a map, like the one above?! It would be such a cool piece to hang in your home after the big day!
The Green Dandelion crafted the prettiest arrangements for the tables. We love their organic, untamed feel!
This truly was the best day ever. The decision to have a small, intimate wedding was the best decision we could have made. It allowed us to have a wedding that signified us as a couple – and maybe I’m biased, but I think we’re pretty awesome…
We think so, too! Big congrats, Emily + Anton, on a totally beautiful day!
