We found this adorable Oregon wedding on Elizabeth Anne Designs blog, and we just couldn’t resist sharing this one with you! Margi and Scott f
ell in love while skiing in the mountains (how cute is that!), so they knew that they wanted their wedding to incorporate beautiful mountain scenery and all natural details. The wedding was held at the stunning Mt. Hood Organic Farms, and everything from the cupcakes to the guestbook was done by family and friends. The theme of the wedding as said by the bride and groom was “friends, family, and community.” This theme certainly came across through the amount of love that was visibly put into every last detail! Take a look at this beautiful photos from FS Photography.
It was important to the couple that they minimized their wedding’s carbon footprint, so all of the wedding decor was made with recycled and reused materials. Even the food was bought locally and organic!
Instead of a traditional guestbook, the bride had guests sign an old ski that she had refurbished- such a cute and personalized idea! We also adore the combination of the vintage style bottle vases with the purple and orange florals!
After the wedding, the bride and groom stayed in a quaint cabin across the farm while about 60 guests camped out in a campsite across the street
from the venue, making this party last all night!

We absolutely love ampersands. For those of you who don’t know what ampersand stands for, it is a combination of the letters “e” and “t,” the Latin word “et” which stands for “and” in English. Used to formally connect names, it’s often used in weddi
ng invitations and monogram
designs. If you’re looking for a gorgeous design element to use on your invitation, check out this blog, no longer being updated but full of inspirations. We couldn’t resist sharing our favorites.
Inspired by the gorgeous florals that Rachel created for the Style Me Pretty shoot, we have put together an inspiration board of our favorite poppy bouquets. Poppies come in an amazing range of colors,
sizes and shapes, but it’s their paper thin
cate petals and cheerful tasseled centers that are so attractive to brides and florists alike. If you are planning a spring or summer wedding, why not consider poppies as the primary flower in your wedding bouquet?
Did you happen to see the Bohemian Tea Party inspiration shoot our own Rachel of Finch & Thistle designed and styled that
was featured on Style Me Pretty last week? Congratulations Rachel! We are so proud of your work and can’t wait to showcase m
ore of your beautiful designs in the future! Rachel collaborated with local Seattle vendors for the shoot including, Notes on a Wedding fave photogs, Angela and Evan Photography for stunning images, our own graphic design guru Iwona Konarski for the lovely ombre stationery, Teryl Hawk for gorgeous hair and makeup, Melanie Backschies of Plum Cushion for the beautiful coordinating pillows, Baked for the
cute and delicious wedding cake, and Wine and Roses for a lovely, if not bitterly cold, venue.

We love the idea of couples personalizing their wedding
invitations by adding the element of illustration. Such invitations can truly convey the bride and groom’s personalities as they can be whimsical, artsy, cutesy, vintage, you-name-it! These type
s of invitations can be printed, letter pressed, or even hand drawn (if time and patience allows!) Either way, illustrated invitations will set the
tone for adorable weddings that guests will be jumping at the opportunity to attend.
