Due to a technical snafu, we couldn’t share this fun post with you as promised last Friday, but here it is today!
Photographer Emily Heizer captured this lumberjack themed wedding style shoot complete with axes, flannel shirts for the ‘maids (cute!) and an adorable flapjack wedding cake. Staged in Oregon, the stylish bridal party struck a pose alongside the McKenzie river. The bouquets and boutonnieres were all made from local dried flowers including thistle, Queen Anne’s Lace, camellias and even a little broccolini.
A wild stream provided the backdrop for the reception. Fallen branches from a recent storm were used as the centerpiece for the intimate fete, and a chevron pattern quilt made from vintage sheets adorned the bridal party table. Tin cans and old wine bottles were upcycled with some paint and glitter, and used as vases. Eco chic!
