Wedding Inspirations – Portland, Oregon

Posted by Rosemary Ragusa on February 25th, 2011

Portland, Oregon is a truly inspiring city.  Filled with people doing amazing things that they want to do for a living!  As a wedding photographer I am always blown away by the talent in this city.  Wedding inspirations are always easy to find.  Here are a few of my favorite things from around town.

Vintage dresses, shoes and hats found at Xtabay on SE Clinton Street.

Sweet and sexy lingerie from Oh Baby on NW 23rd Avenue.

Vintage inspired hair accessories made by hand in Portland by Jade Rose Designs.

Something snuggly to keep you warm over that beautiful dress handcrafted by Suzi and the gang at Souchi.

Brian & Kate – Wedding Photography – Hotel Vintage Plaza

Posted by Rosemary on December 29th, 2009

Portland is famous for it’s outdoor beauty, and although we did capture some of that beauty in the SW Park Blocks, Brian and Kate’s wedding was filled with Portland’s classic and luxurious charm. Their wedding and reception took place at the gorgeously remodeled Hotel Vintage Plaza in downtown Portland. The ceremony was in the beautiful Pazzo Wine Cellar. The ceremony was brief and personal, with a special performance by their friend Michael Olsen. Brian and Kate planned a lovely and yummy affair, friends and family enjoyed a wonderful dinner catered by Pazzo and delicious confections created by there good friend Jill Ramseier who is the pastry chef for the Deschutes Brewery. At there end of the night friends had an “almost dance off” and enjoyed a good boogie on the dance floor. Kate and Brian glowed with joy!

Congratulations you two!

I worked with Jade Rose in the Eco-Elegant Wedding Show this fall. I love the hair pieces she designs. The make up and hair design was crafted by Patty and the other talented women at green. salon. And Laura is such a lovely lady to have as a model.

I’ll be posting more photos from the show soon, this is one of my favorites!

Duchess Clothier – SE Portland

Posted by Rosemary on December 14th, 2009

Ok, so if the assignment is taking photos of hot boys in well fitting suits, I’m there. Duchess is a fabulous custom suit maker locally owned by Seyta Selter. The ladies of Duchess are helping men near and far dress in snappy suits and turn heads! If you’re planning an event (a wedding for example) or just want to have a special suit made to fit you perfectly, Duchess is the place to go. We had SO much fun with this photo shoot.Duchess_Clothier (more…)
