Spruce Salon: NW Portland Oregon

Posted by Rosemary on November 9th, 2009

I absolutely adore Michael and Michelle at Spruce Salon.  They are not only wonderful at what they do, but so fun to hang out with in their super cozy, eco-elegant salon.  I am so excited that they will be joining us as presenters at the Eco-Elegant Wedding show this November 21st. at the Center for Architecture in the Pearl District.  I had a fun date at Spruce Salon a week ago to meet about the show and to have a hair do run through.  Here are my favorite bridal portraits of the day.


Urchin-Redesign Bridal Dresses

Posted by Rosemary on November 4th, 2009

The first time I saw dresses by Sonia the designer for Urchin Redesign in the window of Xtabay, my heart melted. I thought, someone has designed exactly the type of dress that I would want if I were getting married! On top of that, Sonia is a really cool person and an artist in other media as well. The re-use of materials also speaks to my love of saving resources and updated design with vintage flair. Plus, she can take fabric from dresses that you have and redesign them for you, creating something new out of fabrics that have meaning for you personally. I can’t wait to see the unique looks Sonia and Michelle from Spruce come up with the the Eco-Elegant Wedding Show’s fashion show. Urchin Dresses can be found in one of our other favorite spots in Portland, Flutter on N. Mississippi Avenue.
