Chic outdoor wedding

Us Zest gals are pretty spoiled. Not only do we get to surround ourselves with stunning blooms day in and day out, but we get to collaborate with the most amazing brides; each with a fresh style and vision all their own. We adored working with our beautiful and savvy bride Laura to create her and Jeremy’s laid-back yet elegant wedding at Bridal Veil Lakes. The delicate color palette of whites, greens, greys and a few pops of bright coral paired with a picture perfect venue and this darling duo is absolute wedding perfection.

Centerpieces and flowers used: Creamy white hydrangeas, blue thistle, green hypericum berries, dusty miller, white dahlias, white anemones with black centers, coral dahlias, white and peach ranunculus, white spider mums, succulents and eucalyptus.

Table decor featured: Rectangular tables with white linens, grey table runners, clear glass vases and low votive candles.

charming and colorful estate wedding

It’s no secret that us Zest gals love a punch of color. Like a lot. We’ll find any excuse in the book to play with some saturated hues and texture! Which is why we are still crushing on Tai and Kevin’s August wedding. The bright and colorful nuptials were smack in the middle of the prime season for vibrant blooms making it a blast to drench the historical Jenkins Estate in shades of red, pink, fuchsia, orange and green.

Centerpieces and flowers used: Dahlias and zinnias in shades of red, pink, orange, and fuchsia; paired with textural green foliage.

Table decor featured: Rustic groupings of mason jar floral arrangements, low votive candles and stacks of books.

whimsical wedding at castaway portland

Perhaps it’s the cozy wedding venue, the laid back feel of the eclectic centerpieces, or the handcrafted details made by the couple. It's hard to pick just one reason why Steph and Cory’s wedding at Castaway is one of our favorites from last summer! Tables were mix-matched with groupings of flowers and planted succulents in eclectic containers from rustic zinc to sparkling mercury glass. All of the cute clusters were perched atop pale grey table runners and accented by wood coin table numbers made by the couple.

Centerpieces and flowers used: Creamy white dahlias, blush dahlias, hydrangeas, lisianthus, succulents, ranunculus, dusty miller and eucalyptus.

Table decor featured: A beautiful and eclectic mix of zinc containers, mercury glass vases, wood coin table numbers, dusty grey table runners and mercury glass votive candles.
