Thrifted and Handmade Leftbank Annex Wedding in Portland

June 3, 2018 | juliette

Ryan and Morgan’s love for vintage finds and handmade details were front and center in their Leftbank Annex wedding in Portland. With the help of planners from Simply Weddings, the couple brought the industrial space to life with macrame, antique rugs, a mix of hand-painted and modern felt signs, mismatched glassware, and rustic antlers. Briar & Ivy then added crawling ivy on the walls and lush garlands on the tables for a wildly natural and romantic vibe. The bride channeled the vintage, bohemian feel into her look, as well, with a handmade lace dress from Saldana Vintage, which she paired with a delicate flower crown and dramatic red and white bouquet, and her groom looked totally dapper in a mixed-pattern suit and bowtie. Olivia Strohm Photography did a phenomenal job capturing the moody elegance of this winter Portland wedding!

The Couple:

Ryan and Morgan

The Wedding:

Leftbank Annex, Portland, Oregon

It was most important to be surrounded by people we love and who love us as well. We did not want it to be over the top huge, but we wanted to celebrate with our people! Also, we wanted the wedding as a whole to be simple, yet reflect us. Leftbank Annex was a beautiful and open space to accommodate all of that very well.

The entire day was swoon-worthy for us. It honestly was the greatest day yet, but we both agree that the first look topped it all. To have a moment to ourselves to take it all in was the loveliest. We were able to just look at each other, to laugh, and to soak in what was about to happen. It didn’t take away from walking down the aisle at all. Making your way down the aisle, and locking eyes with the person who is saying yes to choosing you for life is incredible.

A lot of people say this but really and truly, the best advice we can give is to keep it simple. It is so much more important to be with your people and relish in the joy of marrying your best friend. We hardly remember the details of table settings or the cake design, but our ceremony, toasts and snuggly pictures, dancing until our feet ached, and being with some of our favorite people are the things we will never forget.



We wrote our own vows together, as well as washed one another’s feet. Both were very special to us. We wanted to make our promises to each other personal, and the washing of feet was one of the first displays of sacrifice and promise as a married couple.

Thrifted finds and DIY are two things we love. The rugs that we stood on for the ceremony were all bought second hand, or borrowed from friends. We made the raw wood and copper frame that the macrame hung on, as well as the banner that was above the head table. We also created the save the dates and invitations ourselves.
