If you’re looking for a fun way to add colour and quirk to your wedding, or are a boho bride looking for a balance between a minimalist outdoor nature wedding and a maximalist love of colour, texture and pattern, then we have a fun stylized wedding photo shoot to share with you! A collaboration between Sweet Delights bakery-owner Krystal Haak, Moments in Time Events & Design, and photographer Laurel Mitchell Photography took place by Dog Creek Falls, a spectacular waterfall in the Columbia River Gorge. They present three bridal looks on three different models, each styled slightly differently to show variation for brides considering different looks. Simple, lace and sheer dresses with fabulously-unique floral headpieces, loosely-styled hair, and beautiful bouquets bursting with colour.
I love how the colourful ribbons are draped from the bouquets as well as being utilized throughout the décor. The varying textiles lends a shabby-chic style to the whole look, and their table setting has plenty of colours to keep the atmosphere playful! Layering different patterned plates and placemats or mixing and matching cups and napkins is so clever this way. All in all, this photo shoot makes me think of river nymphs having a tea party under a waterfall – and it gives plenty of great ideas on how to utilize a variety of colour, flowers, fabrics, and natural elements in a chic bohemian wedding!

The Setting : This unique Chic Bohemian waterfall shoot took place at Dog Creek Falls, located on the Washington Side of the beautiful and popular wedding destination, The Columbia River Gorge. This 30 foot waterfall with beautiful pool below the falls and slow running creek surrounded by beautiful trees and rocks was the perfect setting. The Shoot took place mid evening when the sun was just right, to capture the beauty and essence of each detail of the shoot perfectly. Homemade lights with tea lights in golds, silvers, pinks and blues hung from the trees, surrounding the dinner table setting, along with homemade shabby chic dream catchers, with lace and silk ribbon, large wicker globe with fresh flowers, and a beautiful chandelier shone brightly in the distance. The dinner table sat in the shallow running creek, complete with old redone wooden chairs displaying bunting banners along the backs, a beautiful rectangle flower arrangement sat along the table, a stunning bohemian invitation nestled in between our beautiful place settings in turquoise, blues and greens. A dessert table sat in front of the flowing 30 ft waterfall displaying a naked cake with fresh florals atop a gold repurposed hanging basket, and brightly colored cake cookies sat upon a crystal plate. Naked cupcakes with gold splatter were displayed on crystal blue stands, and pink metallic mason jars and two small votives glowed ever so lightly atop the glass table with colorful fabric runner. A Chic bunting banner flowed in the wind hanging from our homemade wooden arch behind the cake table. Across the pool of water on a small rock Island sat a old ladder, displaying mason jars, bottles and a love sign atop doilies. Lanterns with beautiful florals were placed around the ladder.
Our three gorgeous models, Jazmin, Jessica, and Leann where stunning in different bohemian gowns complete with barefoot sandals. Each girls hair was done perfectly in a different bohemian hair style and beautiful natural looking makeup. Fresh Floral crowns and a bouquets both with trailing ribbon completed each girls style.
