We don’t know why we never thought to hold a wedding in a nursery, but it’s the loveliest spot to exchange vows among the flowers. Susanna and Andrew’s wedding in Portland took place at Pomarius Nursery, which photographer Aaron Courter used to his advantage when capturing the most romantic portraits of the newlyweds embracing in the lush greenery. The black, pink, coral, and sage color palette wedding designer Megan O’Brien of Bridal Bliss chose is perfectly Portalnd in its sweet and soft shades and unexpected contrast.
Susanna and Andrew
Pomarius Nursery, Portland, Oregon
I wanted a low-key, au naturel type feeling. It didn’t necessarily all turn out that way (eg my hair was lacqured into a veritial helmet–not exactly “loose curls” as I’d requested), but that was the general idea. We live in Portland, Oregon, and love the outdoors, and we wanted our wedding to reflect our fun, laid-back lifestyle.
Watching all the children dance their hearts out on the dance floor was amazing. Their joy was palpable. I really wanted a wedding that was an all-inclusive party, and I think we achieved that.
The Couple Recommends:
We absolutely LOVED our band, The Junebugs. They were the hit of the wedding. People are still talking about it to this day.
