Cape Kiwanda Wedding Inspiration by Alixann Loosle & Color Theory Collective
 
She loves the serene brutality of the ocean, loves the electric power she felt with each breath of wet, briny air.
— Holly Black, Tithe

As the ocean air blows across her skin and she feels that serene sense of peace wash over her she is whisked away to a moment in time where nothing else matters. A moment when life and love make perfect sense and you reflect on the journey that brought you to this time, this space, this perfect destination. Movement and beauty come together today in perfect balance of romance and emotion as were taken on a true journey of the senses. Captured perfectly by Alixann Loosle, and designed with an exquisite touch by Color Theory Collective, we are simply in awe of every image, every second of this journey.

From designer Alyssa Lytle of Color Theory Collective: "From the moment these terra cotta, russet and buff colored cliffs of Cape Kiwanda were spotted by collaborators Alixanne Loosle and Color Theory Collective, they knew their analogous color palette had been defined for the contemporary, yet playful beach wedding they had begun envisioning. Incorporating all of these different shades, Alyssa of Color Theory Collective, aimed to create a beautiful juxtaposition between raw earthiness and the rocky cliffs and clean lines of contemporary minimalism.

The modern silhouette of the Lena Medoyeff gown. the Carolyn, were softened by the Lena Medoyeff Cape, adding a soft touch to the contemporary handmade jewelry by Seaworthy PDX. Kelli Thomsen gave the bride's hair an undone, naturally beachy look and a bright and fresh face with nudes and peach tones. These same tones were mimicked in the bouquet tied with custom dyed silk by Seda Medicina and were striking against the dark brooding sky. Photography, Alixann Loosle, used this coastal weather to her advantage, accentuating the palette against the greys and using the drama to create dynamic and powerful photographs.

The La Tavola velvet beige linen provided a perfect base to showcase handmade pieces from several Portland designers, all of which complimented each other. The minimalist shapes, muted tones, and variety of textures brought together through Notary Ceramic stoneware, the handblown glassware from Mazama Wares and the artfully crafted stationery from Dias Made were contrasted by wild and colorful floral designs by Color Theory Collective. Details such as the flatware and lucite chairs from Something Borrowed PDX completed the artfully minimal look.

I am very involved with all of my portrait sessions and weddings. I care deeply for every one of my clients, and look at every wedding like a piece of art. I focus on capturing personal moments and the general ambiance of the day, in order to tell a story and truly invoke the emotion that the bride and groom felt on their special day. I am so happy I get to do what I love for a living.
