Botanical Portland wedding: Alyson + Levi

Categories   Real Weddings

Okay, now THIS is a wedding we’ve been so dying to see. And then share, of course. You all know Alyson, the wonderously talented lady behind Unruly Things (among other things)? She was a gracious guest blogger a few months back and shared inspiration for her Portland wedding, her invites, her bridesmaid dresses, and her flowers. Remember? Yes. Well the wedding has happened and it was lush and green and full of unique little botanical curiosities, exactly in line with Alyson’s personal style.

First, we shall begin with her gorgeous invites. Styled perfectly of course. She’s good, that Alyson.

Don’t the tables look pretty with their little bottles and ferns and nasturtiums and bell jars? Alyson’s little paper details are perfect too.

Amazing bouquet. Moss and berries and string of pearls and tillandsia. Wow.

The venue is pretty amazing, right? So green and lush and important with those tall trees. The canoe is a nice touch too.

Now here’s wedding food we can get behind. Their guests must have been completely stoked to be eating such delicious looking burgers.

Congratulations, Alyson and Levi! Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing your pretty green wedding with us!
