These two were married at Castaway in NW Portland. They had vintage board games, mustard yellow accents, and dried flowers for wedding decor. It was such a fun and colorful venue in the NW industrial area, and next to the cutest little nursery. Everything about their wedding day was just relaxed and perfect!
Vintage Board Games & Mustard Yellow Accents
The details at this wedding were so unique. The table centerpieces included vintage board games, such as old bingo cards, dominoes, and scrabble tiles. There were also dried flowers used, which I’ve never seen before! In fact, the dried flowers were mustard yellow, which was perfect for tying together all the other small yellow details. For instance, the bride wore a yellow sash around her waist, and vintage shoes. These colors are perfect for an Autumn wedding. At Castaway, you have access to the neighboring greenhouse, therefore we shot many of the portraits there. They even had a pumpkin display!
Other Fun Details
I love these bridesmaids dresses. They are fun and multicolored but still go well with the overall look of the wedding and season. The greenhouse was a great location for some of the detail shots as well. The bride and bridesmaids held bouquets made of only baby’s breath, which I think is also a great choice for Fall. Each table also had a paper origami crane in an old glass bottle. The old bottles were a nice addition to the vintage theme.
The Wedding Venue
Castaway is a great wedding venue location. Giant windows surround the space on two walls, and provide a ton of natural light. This couple chose to have their ceremony indoors, but you can also have your ceremony in the courtyard if you prefer an outdoor space. The band, Trashcan Joe, performed prior to the ceremony as well as during cocktail hour. The venue lends well to dancing during the reception. One guest surprised the couple by changing into a crab suit to perform a special dance. It was hilarious. To sum up, this is a fantastic venue option, especially if you are wanting to stay in the city.
