A Warehouse Wedding, Without the Warehouse

After so many blush colored, rustic weddings, we were inspired to design something modern with an industrial flair. First, we found a location within Bend, Oregon to reflect our vision. White Aspen Creative delivered, with their wood floors, white plaster walls and classic red brick wall. We knew we could transform the space into something magical.

We designed the welcome table to exude a botanical, warehouse wedding vibe. Cinder blocks and white candles mixed with blooming alstroemeria and steel accents completed the scene. The guest book was a botanical book and the name card display mimicked an insect specimen box.

The bride's stunning gown and the groom's classic black suit was providing by Bliss Northwest Bridal. The modern, high neck cut of the dress combined with its geometric lace designs, made this dress absolutely perfect. The gorgeous, industrial style silver and diamond wedding rings, along with the stunning raw diamond wedding ring, were supplied by Silverado Jewelry Gallery. Austin Gale provided hair and makeup, delivering a classic red lip and cat eye to our bride.

The ceremony site was lined with cinder blocks, bricks, white candles and blooming paperwhites. But what really completed the design, was the wild greenery overhang, created by The Posie Shoppe. The white florals and hanging greenery created the ideal ceremony backdrop for this warehouse style wedding. The Posie Shoppe also built the unique, flawless circle bouquets, a larger one for the bride and a smaller one for the flower girl. Finally, loose stems of greenery and white florals throughout infused the space with a scientific, botanical energy.

Cocktail hour was hosted at the Dogwood Cocktail Cabin, a funky little local place to grab a fabulous, off-beat cocktail. She had the Beetnik, beet infused vodka, ginger and lemon, and he had a classic dirty martini. After cocktail hour, everyone enjoyed a luscious antipasto display from Tate and Tate Catering, full of delicious cheeses and decadent finger foods.

Modern furniture rentals from West Coast Event Productions, including the gunmetal chairs and urban tables, enhanced the modern warehouse vibe. We lined the head table with planted paperwhites and forced bulbs for an even more botanical feel. Using colors of black, white and green with clear glass accents for the tableware and flatware completed the look.

The green marble wedding cake, complete with skinny, black candles, was designed by Too Sweet Cakes. They also made the mouth-watering croissant doughnuts, frosted with complimentary colors. The cake sat atop a tower of bricks, cinder block, white candles and an expertly placed string of Edison light bulbs. The white pillar candles were provided by Heirlooms and Co.

Other speciality decor was supplied by Jubeelee and Abode, both adorable local boutiques. Their entomology photography mixed with an industrial clock allowed us to create the truly beautiful gallery wall seating area. With some botanical decor and hanging Edison light bulbs, this lounge area was perfect for grabbing some bridal and wedding party photos.

Finally, our amazing photographer Ely Roberts produced each and every one of these stunning photos. He was truly able to capture the industrial vibe, without loosing the softness of our botanical inspiration.
