beautiful and timeless wedding at the sentinel

There are so many details seamlessly working together to make Kate and Brian’s wedding at the Sentinel absolutely stunning. When looking through the gorgeous images from Honeysuckle Photography, we feel like we could go on and on about all the unique touches that make this beautiful affair one of our favorites. But really, the photos speak for themselves. Classically elegant with a soft palette of gray and ivory kissed with touches of blush pink… it’s as pure and timeless as they come!

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.

chic hot pink wedding at the foundry

When one of our favorite gals and wedding coordinator extraordinaire, Katy Haley, came to us about doing her cousin’s wedding flowers, we were already thrilled and honored to take part. Then she told us that her cousin, Monica, wanted hot pink flowers. All pink… everywhere! Our excitement skyrocketed and it was such a blast collaborating with Katy to design this chic wedding. We got to play around with different centerpiece styles from tall lush globes to crystal candelabras and floating candles surrounded with budvase blooms. Seriously, we just can’t get enough of these stunning pink blooms!

To flank Monica and Tommy, the ceremony featured two lush floral features perched atop silver framed pedestals.

Centerpieces and flowers used: Hot pink hydrangeas, roses, garden roses, ranunculus, spray roses and dahlias.

Table decor featured: Silver linens, crystal candelabras, floating candles, silver studded budvases, elegant tall clarinet vases and sparkling mercury votive candles.
