Wedding Inspiration at Saint Irene’s was full of vibrant flowers and decorative accents! A fabulous team of vendors came together to create this look for NW Wedding Underground! NwWU is a website I started last year to help couples find awesome venues and vendors in the area.
Saint Irene’s is an intimate wedding venue tucked away in an industrial park located in Tualatin, Oregon. This venue is conveniently located between Portland Suburbs and Wine Country. The venue consists of two spaces, the ‘High Dive’, which is the coffee and bar side, and the ‘venue’ side, which is bright and airy, providing a blank slate to allow for designing your own event.
The space was designed to complement the industrial location it is at and includes plenty of fun elements and modern art deco style. It also shares a wall and a kitchen with its sister venue, Industry Restaurant, providing all the catering for Saint Irene’s.
Our planner for this event is Samantha Nutt, owner, and planner of Samantha Rae Creative Events. Sam provides day-of and month-of coordination. She really enjoys working with couples who are excited to do a lot of the planning process but just needs someone to help pull it all together on the day of.
Poppies and Paisley Floral created the flower arrangements for this event and they were nothing short of spectacular. The hanging flowers above the dinner table were so thoughtfully arranged. It was one of my favorite details of the event. At Poppies and Paisley, they embrace nature and strive to work with as many locally sourced flowers as possible.
Just like the flowers, the cake was just as colorful and edgy as they were. Erin Fale, owner of Sugarhouse Cake provided us with the beautiful cake. Erin specializes in micro weddings and boutique size cakes while paying as much attention to the inside as she does the outside.
Linda Smith owner and operator of Kiss My Lash PDX, worked her makeup magic on the Bride. Linda used a multicolored palate for the bride’s eye shadow that turned out flawless! She specializes in wedding Make-up, Brow tinting/shaping/henna, Lashes, and Facials!
The bride’s timeless updo was achieved by the one and only, Eira! She loves adding things to her up-dos, like vintage jewelry or flowers. She is also very resourceful and practices hair sewing. Instead of using bobby pins, she actually sews her up-dos in place so that they last longer.
Sharmil Elliott was our gorgeous bride model. She wore the Willowby By Watters “Delena” Gown from Anna’s Bridal. The lacey and low-cut dress looks fabulous and timeless on our bride. Her dapper fiance, Ian was our groom model.
