Eek, I could not be more excited to share all of the details and photos from this gorgeous shoot I had the pleasure of styling/designing/coordinating earlier this year! This has been my favorite project to date and of course it was captured by none other than Jamie Zanotti Photography. I am so glad Jamie stuck around here in Oregon long enough to do this shoot before taking off to Nevada!
I was able to bring several of my favorite vendors together for this shoot, and let’s face it… it’s every wedding planner’s dream to work with such amazing and talented folks on such a gorgeous project. ;) This inspiration shoot was also featured on the Glamour and Grace wedding blog, which was such an honor! You can see the feature here: Vintage Green & Gold Wedding Inspiration
The wonderful team that brought my vision to life are as follows:
Venue: Cloverdale Chapel & Schoolhouse
Photography: Jamie Zanotti Photography
Models: Emily & Matthew Flood
Floral Design: Good Seed Floral
Vintage Rentals: Simply Elegant Wedding Rentals and It’s Your Day by Event Options

Cake & desserts: Noisette Pastry Kitchen
Paper Goods: Kathryn Adair Creative
Coordination/Planning/Styling: Yours truly :)
Now let’s jump right in to the beautiful images and details!
Jamie and I came up with a whole background/story for this shoot… the bride was an aspiring musician and the groom was an aspiring poet/writer. I was originally planning on doing gold and navy for this winter shoot but once I went to the venue and saw the stunning forest green velvet settee, I knew I wanted to base my colors around that. We brought in lots of 1950s vintage elements thanks to Simply Elegant Rentals and Emily’s fabulous collection.
Emily, owner of Simply Elegant Wedding Rentals, made the most gorgeous 1950s bride, and Reina nailed her hair and makeup. The short and sweet lace dress from Blush Bridal brought our 50s look together perfectly. It totally was not the dress I was envisioning from the start (a short dress for a winter shoot!?) but I really loved how it all came together, especially with the fur shawl in the outdoor photos.
Of course I had to sneak my little Addy in there as our 50s flower girl… she was soo not in a photo taking mood, but thankfully my mother-in-law was there and was able to get Addy to smile for a few adorable photos! Thanks Lori! ;)
I found those sweet little gloves Emily is wearing at a vintage store here in Springfield…fell in love with them immediately and I’m so glad we were able to tie them in to the shoot. I actually found another pair of white gloves that you’ll see later in the shoot… we couldn’t decide between the two!
The gold clutch and gold heels were vintage store finds as well… I did a lot of thrifting for this shoot. :)
One of my favorite details (and I think everyone elses’s too) was this floral-adorned violin. So pretty, amirite? Credit goes to Jamie for envisioning that detail and to Taylor with Good Seed for bringing it to life. So good.
Katie Adair put our paper goods together and I just loved how everything came out. I even came up with 1950s names for our bride and groom – “Benjamin Holley” and “Charlotte Piper.” I wanted to tie in a wreath element throughout the shoot, which you will see throughout the paper goods as well as the live wreaths we had at the dessert table, sweetheart table, chapel, etc.
Absolutely loved this creation that the Good Seed girls put together. Trust me I love color but there is something so elegant and naturally beautiful about a simple white and greens bouquet.
Enter our handsome groom, Emily’s husband Matthew. Side note: I coordinated Emily & Matthew’s wedding in 2012, it was actually the second wedding I ever coordinated. Another side note: I coordinated 1/2 of Good Seed (Taylor’s) wedding last summer and I am coordinating the other half (Joanna’s) this summer! So fun!
Off to the chapel…
And then back to the school house for an intimate reception…
That centerpiece though? Ahhh. I couldn’t stop staring at it… so gorg!!
The windows and natural light at the school house are seriously amazing. I am in love with this place.
It’s not a wedding without some tasty cake! What’s the best part about doing styled shoots? Getting to try the tasty treats afterwards… okay maybe not the best but it’s definitely up there.
I’m so happy with how my wreath vision and dessert table concept came together. It’s always so fun seeing an idea or dream come together like this!!
We even had 50s style desserts from Noisette… Mexican wedding cookies, mini pecan and chocolate tarts, caramel puffs… YUM.
Perhaps one of my favorite details of the shoot was this vintage cake topper I ordered from Etsy. I had to find a blonde bride and brown haired groom to match Emily & Matthew (okay I didn’t HAVE to I just really wanted to)… isn’t it adorable!? I have seriously considered starting a vintage cake topper collection.
Lastly we ventured outside in the rain where Jamie got some of the most incredible shots of our bride and groom, in the woods, with an amazing vintage green velvet sette…
This last image is just unreal… I love Jamie’s creativity! So stunning!
Well there you have it… it was such an honor to be a part of this project and to work alongside some incredible friends and vendors. I read the word “friendor” the other day and it made me laugh. I am so thankful to have some great friendors to work alongside in this industry! Thanks to everyone who helped bring my vision to life.
