Elk Space Wedding Inspiration

March 27, 2017

Elk Space Wedding Inspiration.

This styled shoot at the Elk Space in Portland, Oregon, boasts the perfect colors for any spring or summer wedding. With purple, green and pink hues set against the neutral backdrop of the space, it takes a modern-meets-vintage vibe and creates a beautiful reception experience.

The invitation suite features a unique assortment of designs, such as a marbled effect and modern calligraphy, seamlessly pulled together with its cohesive color palette.

The natural light of the venue is one of its most treasured assets. A perfect lounge area features an archway with a floral accent overlooking the sofa and chairs.

The bride is picturesque in her modern strapless gown with a sweetheart neckline and mermaid silhouette. She dons a statement necklace and vintage waves to bring the look together.

Her bouquet mirrors the inspirational color palette, full of lavender and white roses, assorted deep purple blooms, and greenery.

The reception space is outfitted with a striking contrast between white and black. Long reception tables feature bright linens and crisp runners, as well as lilac-colored napkins and striking centerpieces, and are paired with black chairs.

An interesting blend of vintage and modern touches, such as geometric candle holders and vintage pink china, rounds out the wedding style.

The dessert table is a natural wooden piece that holds an assortment of delicious sweet treats. The wedding cake is a stunning creation featuring an ombre light blue design with speckles and swoops of metallic gold. The cake is embellished with a floral accent at the bottom.

There’s no better way to capture the unique ambiance of this venue than with an intimate wedding reception. With its delicate balance of vintage and modern touches, as well as striking and soft colors, this room brings the gorgeous makeover of nature happening outside, in.
