Episode 7 – Oregon Teardrop Rentals Pop-Up Elopement

Jun 8, 2020

Join NwWU host, Crystal Genes Photography, as she chats with Michelle Boyle, owner and designer of Portland Teardrop Rentals. Michelle recently expanded her business model to include “Wedding On Wheels” package options. Couples who book this option get the teardrop trailer, a cake, flowers, champagne, and a photographer! This comes at an especially good time, considering many couples are opting for smaller elopements on account of the pandemic. Oregon Teardrop Rentals pop-up elopement is a fun and unique alternative to a traditional wedding or elopement.

Guess what? This shoot was recently featured on The Oregonian | Oregon Live website!

OREGON TEARDROP RENTALS POP-UP ELOPEMENT

Because of social distancing, many couples are being forced to downsize their original wedding plans. Some are opting to have an elopement now, with a larger celebration later. The teardrop campers give couples a fun option! You can set it up at pretty much any scenic location and use it as a unique centerpiece for your elopement, or you can carry it with you for your honeymoon. Or both!

If you plan to use it at only one location, Michelle and her team will deliver it for you, and will pick it up when you’re done. Alternatively, you can carry it with you by using your own vehicle for towing, or by using their exclusive car rental partner that includes no additional mileage charges.

AN OREGON ‘WEDDING IN A BOX’

In this feature, some amazing wedding vendors have come together to show off their talents. This is the same team you would get with your Oregon Teardrop Rentals pop-up elopement!

In the video episode, I chat with Michelle about her company and her vision. Alana Weintraub, of Flowers By Alana knocks it out of the park with her vibrant flower arrangements. We actually worked with Alana on Episode 5 at Urban Studio. She was so great to work with that we invited her back! Check out Episode 5, or search for her feature on the blog to watch her interview. Laura Wilson, of NW Confections, meticulously designed dozens of handmade sugar flowers. Her cake is seriously a show stopper. And it tastes amazing!

Our bride model, Shelby Renee, has also worked on a previous episode, not as a model but behind the scenes! She was our featured makeup artist in Episode 4 at The Evergreen. She’s such a cutie, and since we couldn’t have a makeup artist work separately due to the pandemic, this was a win-win! She talks about her makeup company, Shelby Renee XOXO, in episode 4, or you can find her featured on our blog. She and her fiance Dylen were perfect models for this free-spirited elopement shoot.

Shelby wore a dress from Anna’s Bridal Boutique in Lake Oswego. Alyne is the style of the dress, designed by Rita Vinieris.

WHY HAVE A TEARDROP POP-UP WEDDING?

Pandemic aside, who wouldn’t want to have such a fun and unique pop-up wedding? The teardrop takes your elopement to the next level. It provides a colorful ceremony backdrop, and a space to set up flowers, cake and champagne. Afterwards, just climb inside for the honeymooning. Take it with you for a road tripping adventure!

HERE ARE SOME REASONS WE LOVE THIS IDEA:

The teardrops are lightweight and nearly any type of car can tow them.

Because they are lightweight, they are also pretty easy to move around by hand. You can roll them into just the right place for your backdrop.

The ‘wedding on wheels’ option makes planning and setup is a breeze! You don’t have to worry about searching for the perfect vendors, or keep track of hiring several people. This option is just one payment, and done. All you need is an officiant (we have recommendations), witnesses (your photographer can be one!), and the marriage license.

If you live out of state and have always dreamed of eloping in Oregon, you can skip needing to book a hotel. See more of beautiful Oregon, and get the most out of your visit, by carrying the teardrop with you.

The teardrops are colorful and unique!

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Our inspiration for this feature started with Margot herself, the yellow teardrop. Did I forget to mention that all the teardrops have names?! Margot is so bright yellow and cheerful. I envisioned her in an open grassy space, with a free-spirited couple. I thought lots of vibrant flowers would be perfect for adding to the cheer. We found the perfect grassy space, tucked between some trees, where even little white wildflowers were covering the ground.
