OUTDOOR WINTER WEDDING IDEAS WITH SUSTAINABLE ELEMENTS 

Molly Sprayregen

This photo shoot features real-life couple Laura and Risa eloping in a winter wonderland on Oregon’s Mount Hood.

“I wanted to hone in on the textures, colors, and materials of the PNW,” writes florist Katie Walten of Blooms & Twine Floral. “Everything I used, even all of the blooms, came locally from incredible small businesses and farms.”

The vendors, many of whom were LGBTQ+, utilized natural, re-purposed, ethically-sourced items, including ethical diamonds from MiaDonna Diamond and gowns from Brides for a Cause , which donates to charity with the sale of their dresses.

The temperature fell to the 20s on the day of the shoot, but these stunning photos show that a little cold can’t stop love and romance from shining.

Walten says of the couple, “They’re a beautiful pair that have more love between them than any I’ve ever seen!”
