We love it when a bride and groom goes out of their way to “shop local” when choosing their wedding vendors. Sure, most couples hire local vendors, but how many couples use local crafters and designers to create
the wedding gown, groom’s suit and the bride’s birdcage veil? Heidi and Jesse did all that and more when planning their hipster style Portland wedding. Photographed by the brilliant Brandon Witzel, who truly captured the intimacy and joy of the day, this wedding was originally posted on Green Wedding Shoes and we couldn’t resist sharing it with you guys! We were so taken with how Brandon captured the intimacy and joy of this sweet wedding!
The couple got ready for their big day together- what a sweet idea!
To coordinate with her aquamarine engagement ring, Heidi chose a knee length wedding dress of palest aqua by Portland designer Sarah Seven. She contrasted the blue with a white bolero and topped off the a birdcage veil with white feathers and coral silk flowers. A traditional pearl
necklace completed the look.
Straight out of Portlandia, the couple paraded through their neighborhood with a bike posse close behind them.
An open-air “tent” was created with rope and pom poms and cleverly held up with a cluster of yellow helium balloons. The couple continued the bike theme with a sweet bicycle stamp on their favors.
