During my trip to Oregon, I crafted this styled elopement at Cascade Locks in Hood River County. My friend Kristin and I graduated high school together, she lives in Portland and let me stay with her for a few days. Kristin connected me to her sweet friends Emmy + Mark who were my lovely models for this shoot. Emmy and Mark are Oregon natives and suggested we shoot at Cascade Locks, when we arrived I was blown away by the beauty.
My inspiration for the shoot came from this fun embroidered dress I found online at forever 21. Once I saw this dress, I thought a bride could totally rock something like this! So I ran with it! I teamed up with Lora over at Sophisticated Floral and she really brought this shoot to life with her stunning flower crown & cascading bouquet. Her flower choices complimented the dress so well with the rich pops of color & unique arrangement.
Hope this inspires you to go with your gut and color outside the lines a little!
