Villa Catalana Wedding


Can you believe this villa is actually in Oregon? I know, I was shocked when I first laid eyes on Villa Catalana.  I felt like I was in sun-drenched countryside of Italy. What a treat it was to spend the day here, styling a 1:1 photography mentorship photo shoot.

Our goal was to capture the old-world charm the venue offers, transporting you to Italy. Warm tones of peach and butter worked beautifully with the natural stone walls and buildings. Abundance of seasonal, locally grown flowers for the bouquet and table. And a long veil to pair with the gorgeous lace overlay gown. Just enough details to let the romance shine through.

Some of my favorite late Spring blooms were used in the floral designs: poppies, ranunculus, lilacs and tulips. One flower that stood out for me was the Tulip ‘La Belle Epoche’, with colors of caramel and apricot in a peony flowering shape.  See if you can spot it in the bouquet!
