Unique Oregon Wedding at The Colony

by Lane' Bigsby on Tuesday, December 29, 2015

in Featured, Inspiration, Props in Action, Real Wedding

Emily and Scott have such an appreciation for all things beautiful and unique, that they felt it only natural to let that inspire them when planning their day. Here is some background on this couple’s Unique Oregon wedding!

Emily is from Europe and Scott from the South- this eclectic couple knew that they didn’t want something over the top or elaborate, they wanted a day that felt as personal as their love, that represented their past and present homes for each of them. Emily is an artist here in Portland, Oregon and pulled from that talent to DIY many elements of the day, including the signage and wall decor!

Emily’s maid of honor also happened to be her photographer- and we must say, her love for the newlyweds is so apparent in these photos!

Bridal Inspired Photoshoot with Beyond the Wanderlust

by Lane' Bigsby on Thursday, December 17, 2015

in Inspiration, Props in Action

We love a bridal inspired photoshoot. Why? Because it gives US the opportunity to group some of our favorite items into collections that coordinate well with one another. So, when we are asked to collaborate with other wedding & event professionals, we usually jump on board!

“Beyond the Wanderlust” is an Ohio-based photography blog that offers various educational opportunities and workshops for bridal and lifestyle photographer’s nationwide. This includes the opportunity to shoot the same subject matter (in this case, a bridal inspired concept) with other photographers in your peer group.

That is exactly what this shoot was! We provided many of the rental items that were included in this unique bridal inspired shoot at Clackamas River Farms. The idea was to see how different photographer’s unique perspectives are capturing the same items. There were three different set-ups and models. We love seeing how each photographer viewed our items through their lens.
