Will + Rachelle | Castaway Portland Wedding | Portland Wedding Planner
We are honored to be featured in the Best of 2018 Oregon Bride Magazine. There is nothing more rewarding then having your work featured in such a highly regarded publication. We put so much love and thought into our weddings, and I just can't imagine anything better then seeing them in print. Thank you Oregon Bride!
Will and Rachelle came to me with a pretty clear vision of how they wanted their wedding to look and feel. They knew they wanted the day to have a bit of a moody vibe with rich hues of oranges, reds, and black. We then added in hints of blush, and cement to add some softness. The result?! Such a refreshing and gorgeous design that was a true reflection of their style and personalities.
Swoon Floral Design did an incredible job on their florals and really brought their color pallet to life. We did a mix of oval cement containers on the banquet tables and cement urns on the rounds. She also incorporated black pillar candles into the head table, and a mix of amber votives which helped bring bring color interest throughout the tablescape.
Classic Vintage Rentals provided the farm tables, lounge furniture, and moody black flatware! And we ordered Charcoal Grey Velvet table linens and runners for their dining tables.
A fun design detail we incorporated was using black acrylic for their signage and their table numbers. Their escort board in particular was a huge self standing black acrylic board designed be See Level Design Co. with white vinyl, that made a statement and helped guests find their table assignments during cocktail hour!
Food was an important component to them as well. Chefstable served a beautiful dinner which was a mix of plated and family style dining. They had finger desserts to accompany their wedding cake, and they also surprised their guests with Chicken & Waffles as a late night snack- Yum! Their cement styled wedding cake was created by the talented Dream Cakes!
Their group was on the smaller side for the lofty open space at Castaway, so in order to make the reception feel cozier we draped off the ceremony corner with a beautiful grey velvet fabric which created a really warm and cozy ambiance for their intimate group of 90 guests. The newlyweds and their family and friends danced the night away under the twinkle lights at castaway! It was a very memorable night, and definitely a highlight of my 2017 season!
