Boho pastel macrame wedding ideas at Studio 1904 in Portland

November 13, 2017

So, we’re pretty sure we’ll *always* have a thing for macrame (thanks, Pinterest!), but seeing this boho pastel editorial from Something Borrowed PDX and Maria Lamb at the intimate, industrial event space that is Studio 1904, we’re more in love than ever before. And it’s not just this incredible cake, either… Custom macrame is incorporated in every aspect of this design:

This pastel-hued spring wedding inspiration shoot began as a collaboration between the event designers at Something Borrowed and the botanical wizards at Solabee Flowers. We came together with an idea to create a light, airy and modern “macrame garden” in a beautiful, sunlit space. We imagined weaving tendrils of vines and flowers into a ceremony arch, as if they were part of a macrame design. We also wanted to incorporate lots of rich textures and a pastel gradient of rosy pink, peach, marigold, earthy green, and turquoise.

Such good work, you guys!

The macrame tassel details were echoed in the Bride’s earrings by Demimonde and the linen napkins on the dining tables. The lounge space and dining areas showcased bright, modern furniture, rustic wood details and earthy ceramics by Tamara Bryan Pottery. Our real couple, Lara and Steve Roth, wore casual wedding looks from BHLDN and Topman to suit the laid back, natural vibe. Studio 1904, a historic building in downtown St. Johns, created a perfect backdrop for the party. The room is flooded with natural light and features rustic exposed brick walls and airy open spaces.

In case your wondering (because we so were!), the signature cocktail Desert Rose that White Pepper PDX whipped features jalepeño infused Espolón Tequila Reposado, Vida Mezcal, ginger, lime, rose water, and aloe. Yum.
