Published on Wedding Sparrow, This portland city wedding at the Ecotrust building was the perfect venue to host a soiree for this out-of-state couple. Bridget and Brandon knew they wanted a modern city wedding, but also wanted a space they can feel like themselves. The Irving studio at the Ecotrust building checked all of the boxes. From a cozy industrial indoor space, to access to a rooftop that offered views of the city. Their ideal space for a modern city Portland wedding.
Bridget and Brandon are one of my favorite couples from this year. They were very intentional with their wedding decisions, from selecting vendors that are environmentally conscious to requesting leftovers be provided to shelters and those in need. Their wedding party was their hype team. Every one of them encouraged, supported, and danced the night away without any hesitation. What more can ask for from your wedding party!
Planning a modern city wedding in Portland
Planning an event can be an overwhelming task. Doing it from out of state is something else altogether, but curating an incredible vendor team will take most of that burden away. Defining a modern city wedding will be the first step. With the help of MH Events, they were able to locate The Irving Studio in Ecotrust. A venue with brick accent walls in their industrial indoor space. Access to a rooftop with sweeping views of the city and most importantly, a venue that gives back to the community.
Caroline Reusen Floral designed a lovely floral installation using the venue’s exposed beams. A center space for all eyes to follow. She created a perfectly modern contrast of lush green and white flowers against the historic brickwork. Bridget’s bouquet complimented her wedding dress. An elegant effortless bouquet of white roses, dahlias, and scabious with touches of grey-green eucalyptus.
When planning your own modern city wedding, take care of communicate your vision with your vendors. As a photographer, my goal is to help you document and bring your vision to life. Knowing Bridget and Brandon’s vision, I scouted, designed, and planned all the photo opts locations beforehand. Keeping to the theme of a modern romantic city wedding.
