Every year, the hostesses of A Country Bridal Affair put their their heads together and come up with a Styled Photo Shoot to showcase the amazing local talent that is featured in the group’s annual bridal show. This year, their goal was to capture a soft color pallet, paired with rustic lace, burlap and gold accents for a very current yet classic country chic Boho style. Using inspiration from the group’s Pinterest board and showcasing some of the fantastic vendors that make this intimate bridal show such a continuous success, the team got to work in late September setting the scene for this amazing shoot!
First up, we obtained some beautiful models; Josh and Aryel Grozav who were married in 2012 pulled off the bride and groom roles flawlessly. Bridesmaids Savannah and Brittney were gorgeous in grey and soft coral vintage gowns with cowboy boots. The bride’s dress was made by show organizer Cindy Boggs of CR Boggs Designs, Cindy also hand designed the hair clips and provided the jewelry. Hair and makeup for the bride was provided by the amazing Genevieve Blair Hair and Makeup Artist and stylist while Amanda Fox Styles worked up looks for the two bridesmaids. The gorgeous Bohemian floral halos, bouquets, and centerpieces were provided by Swoon Floral Design, another hostess of this year’s A Country Bridal Affair. To set the scene, U R Invited Custom Invitations by Safiyah provided stationary, Cowgirl Cupcake brought a beautiful Ombre teal and gold cake with coordinating cupcakes and cake pops, Busy Bee Catering provided delicious Pork Tenderloin with roast seasonal vegetables, potatoes and quiche. The rustic wooden table topper, gold chairs, settings and tablecloth were provided by show sponsor and beloved local rental company, Barclay Event Rentals. They will have a similar table setup at this year’s bridal show to see in person! Something Borrowed Portland provided table decorations and other finery to polish off our shoot. The location was hand picked as a featured venue in this year’s bridal show; Cedar Springs Country Estate. This venue is an elegant gem set in the country of Sandy, Oregon and features fields, fencing, a gazebo, rustic buildings, a pond, and lush meadow on the property. Finally, all of this was captured perfectly by local award winning photographer and show co-founder/hostess Becky Nerpel of Studio 623 Photography.
