Nestled in the hills of Oregon’s lush wine country, there sits an estate appearing to drop straight out of the countryside of Catalonia, Spain. Statues, stone masonry, ponds, pergolas, archways, sky-touching Italian cypress, vine-wrapped pillars, olive trees, stone steps leading from one garden sanctuary to the next. Villa Catalana Cellars is simply divine. Lusciously layered old roses and grape vines wind around every pillar, while tendrils of green vines emerge out of each stone crevasse, stretching towards unending sunshine and rain from above.

This private estate magnetized Betsy Blue Photography into hosting a private fine art film workshop, customized for one of her mentoring clients. Discussions of film and lighting nuances were held across the lush 14-acres, surrounded by Mediterranean gardens rich in unique flora. Kaleb Norman James styled a velvety table cascading with light-infused blooms along with multiple flatlays spread out in magnificent order with drama and simple romance alike…all richly fragranced with hints of Europe.

Betsy’s dedication to her mentoring clients is evident in the attention she gives to customizing each private workshop to her client’s brand style and business needs, giving them knowledge along with a rich gallery to walk away with that symbolized the culmination of months of study, practice and hard work.

Inspired by the classic French countryside wedding vibe, the team behind today’s French Blue in the County inspiration shoot put their own spin on the theme Mount Peak Farm in the Pacific Northwest. Details like lace, a blue palette, white florals and fresh blueberries adorning a lovely ribbon-wrapped cake are just a few of the details that attracted us to this shoot captured by Janet Lin Photography with design and florals by Chloe Nicole Weddings, coordination by Brick + Willow, stationery by Love Fern Design Studio  at  Mount Peak Farm with a cake by QFC Bakery.

From the planners: Inspired by the quaint & picturesque essence of the French countryside, this romantic wedding inspiration at Mount Peak Farm in the Pacific Northwest will make you feel like you’ve stepped right into a dream…or the rolling hills of Provence. Designers Brick + Willow and Chloe Nicole Weddings put a fresh spin on the classic French countryside wedding. Luxurious shades of blue, from velvet linens & ribbon to the intentional addition of fresh blueberries throughout make this wedding inspiration all its own.

Love Fern Design Studio crafted the most fitting stationery suite and place cards for this soft & romantic affair. The florals were a key element of the design, with the goal of achieving a romantic, timeless, and elegant look. Big white blooms and luscious greens created a stunning display of full arrangements down the table and all throughout the ceremony space. Loose greens and slight pops of texture added the perfect garden-like feel to the entire shoot. A classic iron arch with whimsical greens and pops of white roses created a romantic ceremony site. The bride was breath-taking in her off-the-shoulder full lace gown from Weddings With Joy and classic hair and make up look by Paper Dolls NW. The groom swept her off her feet with his charming smile and dapper ensemble from Men’s Wearhouse.

An enchanting tablescape placed in the midst of a sunlit pathway made for the dreamiest intimate reception. CORT Party Rental & BBJ Linen created a table design filled with texture, soft blues, and antiqued silver tones. A creekside vignette of vintage furniture from Remember Me Pretty established a peaceful retreat for specialty cocktails, cake and toasts.

from the team: The bride is edgy, but romantic and The Alba Room at the Foundry was the perfect blank canvas to create that atmosphere for a small wedding party. The white-washed brick walls adds intrigue with its texture yet allows for a clean backdrop. I love how the glass roof fills the room with light. It gives the feeling of being outside even though it’s indoors. High ceilings also make space feel bigger. This is important when the max capacity is 70 people and you want to maintain a feeling of airiness.

We kept the bride’s gown simple yet elegant. This is one of Tatyana Merenyuk’s signature looks. The chiffon gown embodies romance. It’s soft, fun, and moves with ease. The blush color of the dress embraces femininity. It’s complemented with the bride’s platinum blonde hair, styled in an effortlessly chic blunt cut softened with waves.

As for the tablescape, we chose pastel shades of blues, pinks, and pops of yellows to set the whimsical tone. With modern romance in mind, orchids make a statement and add a tropical edge when combined with selected romantic blooms. To tie the look together, we draped the dinner table with beautiful natural linens set with pastel blue plates and deckled edge menus. No wedding is complete without the cake! “By Pensa” baked this sleek two-tiered cake adorned with a whimsical bloom sprouting up along the side. Finally, we crafted some beautiful cocktails and bubblies. They add a sophisticated twist to refreshments on those hot summer days, keeping guests happy and dancing the night away.
