The modern tropical wedding has been mega huge over the last few years (and counting), so you may be wondering how to keep it fresh for 2019. Well, our guide member GATHER Events managed to hit on every element all at once, making tropical modern decor and graphic elements all right at home at new Portland venue Black Door PDX. From this greenery wedding cake to the floral installation above the tables, When She Knew captured every detail you’ll fall for, below.See Level Design Co partnered with Ashwood Avenue to bring luxe, modern elements into the paper goods, like tassels, acrylic, and velvet. Lux Sucre created a cake with magnolia leaves to carry their colors throughout the shoot.
Tip from the team: paper goods and signage can bring a really elevated look to your décor, introducing a juxtapositions of your design themes.
Bramble Floral Design created a stunning hanging installation that became the focal point of the room. The mingling of dried foliage, tropical fronds and delicate spring blooms creates a visual piece that is so stunning, with so much character and depth. The use of the palms climbing the walls surrounding the lounge, along with living plants brought in from Pomarius Nursery, create vibrancy, interest and another focal point for the event space.
We keep coming back to this gorgeous design!
We love designing parties of all shapes and sizes, but definitely have a soft spot for small, intimate affairs! Black Door PDX, Portland, Oregon’s newest intimate event space, is the perfect spot to host a myriad of petite events and we were so thrilled to have the first opportunity to showcase just how amazing this space can be. The high-end, modern aesthetic inspired the details of this inspirational shoot. We knew that we wanted to take the black and white palette of the venue, and dress it up with sophisticated pale blushes, light gray, fresh spring green tones, and with a few seductive mauves! The stark contrast of black can often result in a cold feeling, but we love how, focusing on the lighter tones can create a scene that’s warm and inviting. We call this look: classy with a hint of Palm Springs.
