A beautiful wedding at King Estate Winery

I had the pleasure of working with the bride, Brittany Steele, and her mother on her beautiful wedding in August. It was held at King Estate Winery in Eugene, Oregon and the weather (although windy) was blue skies and a great temperature.

A combination of hydrangea, roses, and lilies created perfectly sized centerpieces.

Hydrangeas, seasonal dahlias, and lilies were the focus of the flowers and the bright orange gave everything a “pop” against the background. Congratulations to the bride and groom!
