Indie Portland wedding: Lindsay & Alec
With all the variety in styles of weddings we see come through our inbox, the go-to romantic, woodland, garden, etc terms sometimes don’t fit. Especially with this one from Wild Hearts. Lindsay & Alec used “industrial opulence” to describe theirs, and we thought it was perfect. Kinda grabs your attention and makes you curious to see what inspired them, doesn’t it? Lindsay told us they looked at 17th century Flemish still life paintings and adopted a moody, deep palette to give their wedding an old world mid-summer’s night look and feel.
These little dishes are gorgeous. Lindsay convinced her bridesmaid, Rachel, also her partner at Barrow, to make 150 small ceramic salt dishes as favors for each guest. Wow.
Some advice from Lindsay… The best advice we got was to spend the morning with one another, relaxing over breakfast before everything got too crazy. So we drank juice on our hammock in the backyard, it was a perfect moment that made us feel normal on a not-so-typical day. Keeping things purposeful was something that I learned during the planning process, and at some point, just had to say no to Pinterest! There are so many great ideas out there that will make you doubt your own choices. Less is more, was my motto. Trust yourself and your vendors about making the day beautiful and meaningful.
