Willamette Valley Summer Styled Shoot
Willamette Valley Summer Styled Shoot. Exploding with verdant greenery, the hills of the Willamette Valley in the Pacific Northwest make for one splendid summer setting. For a small wedding celebration, an outdoor location furnished with a palette of pink, green, and gold, along with vintage décor, is both lively and refreshing. This styled shoot provides the inspiration for a lovely and seasonally-appropriate affair. The invitation suite, boasting pale pastels and soft designs, creates a romantic and dreamy impression.
A bouquet is arranged with fuchsia carnations, white chrysanthemums, green hydrangea, and light pink roses. It is tied together with a generous white satin ribbon, which is the only shade of white in the bride’s outfit.
She dons a blush chiffon strapless gown with delicate ruching and a waistband that accentuates her figure. Her long dark locks are lightly tousled and she accessorizes with a simple gold beaded headband.
In a perfect scene, meeting under a white arbor would be an impeccable ceremony moment. The flourishing foliage is idyllic and creates an unblemished background of green behind the bride.
A reception table with a natural, rustic finish is decorated with a plush runner of greenery, vintage dark brown medicine bottles, and a mixture of white tapers and snapdragons. There is also an assortment of mismatched chairs for a graceful approach.
Place settings are complete with vintage white and gold china, as well as clear and rose-colored glassware. Small floral touches, dainty napkins, and gold flatware round out the look.
Even the most intimate wedding deserves a delicious delicacy. This simple white two-tier creation is crisp and classic. It’s accented with touches of greenery and sits on a glass cake stand with a vintage doily.
The serene location has all the makings for a simple and sentimental summer memory. Summer can be soft and sweet and this styled shoot awakens feelings of romanticism, tenderness, and refinement. Even the hottest forecast and the longest sunset can be tempered with the promise of a lifetime.
