Our final real wedding for the year is this gorgeous Washington celebration captured by Portland Wedding Photographer EDEN WILLOW PHOTOGRAPHY. Cheyenne and Raymond were married at BELLA FIORI GARDENS - an oasis of lush, manicured greenery in the middle of the deserts of Eastern Washington. Knowing it would be such a beautiful setting, Cheyenne opted to keep the decor simple and complement the venue's Italian Garden aesthetic. Stylist Dawn Alderman of JUNE LOVES JOHN tells us, "There is just something special about a wedding that incorporates timeless, well-loved vintage items throughout the theme and décor. Cheyenne has amazing style; her attention to detail, tones, textures chosen for her and Raymond's day of love was impeccable. The invitation suite was custom designed and letterpress printed on cotton paper. Flowers for the event were sourced locally and featured a soft spring colour palette with hand dyed silk ribbons. Event décor and furniture featured vintage china and glassware, sterling silverware, vintage velvet sofas, and Persian rugs."
Drawing inspiration from the venue itself, gorgeous bride Cheyenne played off the beautiful gardens. Incorporating blush, nude and grey tones in the colour palette gave them a very soft romantic look. "We also incorporated a vintage, tea party theme to bring a little bit of glamour to the wedding. We wanted the wedding to be very romantic and glamorous while still keeping the personal, small wedding feel."
HOW DID YOU MEET? Raymond and I met in high school and began dating when I was 16 and he was 17. High school sweethearts! We moved together to Corvallis where I attended college and one of our favourite things to do together was make day trips to a Timbers game in Portland.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR PROPOSAL: One day he told me he got us tickets to tour the stadium. Little did I know, he rented out the entire stadium and arranged a private tour! We made our way around the stadium and when we finally got to centre field Raymond got on one knee and proposed. I felt like Kim K and Kanye, the proposal was so sweet and grand.
