Botanical Garden Wedding Inspiration | Sauvie Island, OR | Wedding Editorial

I’ve been dreaming about photographing a styled wedding shoot for quite some time now, and I’m thrilled to finally share images from my Botanical Garden Wedding editorial shoot.  I have a personal love for textural greenery like Tillandsia, succulents, and fern fronds – each one like a small green sculpture.  Though I do love flowers, I’m drawn to the idea of  a wedding that features luxurious leaves, branches, and fronds in various shades of green, with a rustic, yet simple, elegant, and almost minimalistic feel.  I could think of no better location for this than Cistus Nursery on Sauvie Island, which is a magical place.

I had the privilege of working with a talented and amazing team of artists, professionals, and dear friends on this shoot.  Thank you to each one of you for your collaboration:
