From Karra Leigh Photography – “When dreaming up this shoot I came across the “Mae” dress from Chantel Lauren and instantly fell in love knowing that it would be the perfect inspiration dress for creating a simplistic and chic style around the Serenity color of the year! The dress was hand-dyed and I LOVE the idea of brides rocking a colorful dress and keeping the overall style simple.”
From Karra Leigh Photography – “The Willamette Heritage Center is such a gem of a venue because it has the most beautiful white washed brick and oozes character. With a minimalistic approach to the table setting it really brought out the hand painted watercolor script for the table runner that added a more personal touch to the day.
I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you straightforwardly without complexities or pride so I love you because I now no other way than this: where I does not exist, nor you, so close that your hand on my chest is my hand, so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep. – Sonnet XVII- Pablo Neruda
“This was the quote written across the table runner and it’s such a beautiful statement for the bride and groom on their wedding day!”
