Vintage Romance Wedding Inspiration

A Styled Shoot with Cross-Country Vendors

It's always exciting, getting an inquiry from a place you've never been. I've never been to Portland, but that is the base for photographer Gina Neal, who reached out to me last year for a styled shoot. Isn't the internet wonderful for making cross-country connections with others?

She described all the passionate little details to me over email, and I knew it was going to be a great, unique shoot. And, I wasn't wrong. I don't have anything like these images in my portfolio (until now). I can't tell you how hard it's been not to share every little image on social media.

The Details


Let's start with that venue! Deepwood Estates looks so beautiful! Can someone invite me to to a wedding there, please? It seemed very romantic English countryside. But, Gina selected other details that made it more modern. Check out the vintage rentals and the naked cake!


I absolutely loved the favors she picked! Air plants as thank you notes or favors: yes please! I found a link where you can buy them here. They definitely played up the more modern feel. I choose gray washes of sumi ink on handmade paper to up the modern but romantic effect.


I really think the washes of pigment created a unique, elegant effect. And, Gina captured it all so beautifully. I mean, just check out this flat lay below! I loved so many elements about this shoot. I bet you want to see more!
