An Urban Venue for Your Micro-Wedding in Portland

Styled Shoot with Ora Et Labora Wine Shop


If you’ve been looking for the perfect wedding venue to host an intimate wedding in Portland, Oregon then let us introduce you to a gorgeous space in North Portland: The Vinum Lounge at Ora et Labora.  This space, part of a beautiful wine lounge located in the Williams neighborhood, is expertly designed with a moody interior and stunning details to host your mirco-wedding in Portland.  


We worked alongside some incredibly talented vendors in the area to put together a styled shoot showcasing this intimate, unique location that caters to the smaller guest count wedding events.  


Ora et Labora Wine Shop is known for their vast selection of tantalizing wines from the PNW and beyond.  Alongside an impressive wine program, they offer engaging wine education classes throughout the year making this the perfect destination for a wine-lovers wedding day!



The main shop features a stunning wine wall, a perfect location to take some portraits of the couple on wedding day, or to highlight your wedding dress for detail shots.  This portion of the venue is optional to include in your package when booking your event, but regardless of your event size sneaking away for a few portraits is a must when using The Vinum Lounge as your wedding venue.



The Vinum Lounge, the private event space attached to Ora Et Labora Wine Shop is the main space utilized for weddings and events.  Dark wood, brick walls and a moody printed teal accent wallpaper make this space come to life.  A rolling bar is a centerpiece that can be adjusted to accommodate any layout. Lounge furniture is included in your rental and an expertly designed beverage program to fit your tastes is a highlight of booking your event here.




We love the way the moody interior helps to serve as a backdrop for your wedding attire.  For this shoot, we put together two looks with gowns from Justin Alexander to punch up the sophisticated air of the space.


For a sleeker profile, we chose “Gwinn” from Justin Alexander.  This soft, charmeuse fit and flare wedding dress presents a clean, modern look.  The simple dress, paired with a floral veil from Thanks&Goodluck adds a unique feminine touch.



For some added drama, we designed a wedding day look around “Joan” from Justin Alexander’s Signature collection.  The basque waist is a hot trend in bridal that we can’t get enough of, and the full skirt creates the drama we were after in this bridal style.  Paired with a customized veil from August Veils for a cohesive trend.


Additionally, we styled Hilary in an ivory suit jacket from Allure Bridals as a perfect complement to Mallory’s wedding looks.
