Kate & Trevor Wedding-94_web

Kate and Trevor envisioned an elegant garden party to celebrate their wedding, and their dream came alive with luxuriant décor and classy detail. In a sweet reflection of Kate’s parents’ wedding celebration, they were also married at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral and received their guests following the ceremony at a private club nearby for cocktails, dinner and dancing.  Champagne, copper and gold with navy blue accents set the tone for a very classy affair, with art deco inspired glam touches (just look at Kate’s gorgeous dress!)  Geometric Toblerone chocolate bars were wrapped for place cards at each setting, while lush garlands of greenery ran along the center of the banquet tables.  Coral and peach florals played off the gold, copper and champagne shades.  As twilight descended thousands of flickering candles mirrored the twinkling café lights strung overhead, and the band crooned jazz and blues:  Romance was alive in the summer night air!  After dinner the garden wedding kicked up a notch with swinging dance music and bright flashes of a photo booth to capture all the fun and silliness of their guests.  Congratulations, Kate and Trevor!

It’s hard not to see the fun loving personality of these two in their epic wedding at a private residence in West Linn, coordinated by Emily. From start to finish, Carlyn and Nick wanted their guests to have an unbelievable night full of laughter, love and dancing. Playing with the home’s modern yet rustic design, their wedding featured subtle rustic decor with peach and blue hues intermixed. The one of a kind views provided the backdrop for the ceremony and reception where guests were treated to delicious northwest cuisine. Once the dancing got started, the bride and groom received a special surprise of their own when Elvis showed up for a one of kind performance for the father -daughter dance! Once the sun set the couple were sent off with a sparkler light show!

Cally and Guy had one of the most magical wedding venues and their event was featured on Style Me Pretty! They were lucky enough to be married at Cally’s family home just outside of Portland and worked with Elizabeth to coordinate the event.. Rippling Waters Park is truly one of a kind. Cally and Guy said “I do” in front of a Balinese Tea House that they adorned with lush flowers and greenery. The Balinese Tea House sat in a grass meadow surrounded by towering old trees. The ceremony was quiet with little noise but the string quartet, a very peaceful setting for Cally & Guy to say their vows. The wedding party stood in a half circle around them signifying the circle of love supporting their union. Their beloved flower hound Chowder voluntarily lay at their feet resting her head on Guy’s shoe.

After the ceremony guests headed down to Gales Creek lookout and enjoyed cocktail hour by the water. Guests were then led up a dirt trail to the reception which opened onto the home’s lawn and garden. This field hosted an amazing marquee for dinner, including the dance floor and band. The tent was filled with flowers, candles and wood cut table numbers. The inspiration for the feel in the tent was elegant yet natural. Having such a beautiful backdrop we wanted to keep things very organic and blended with the beautiful surroundings. CallyGuy-0087

As the sun set Cally & Guy wowed their guests with an amazing burn in a valley below. The architectural fire burned all night creating a magical glow for the reception.  After dancing the night away to the band and crackle of the fire, guests followed a trail lit by candles and sparklers to the dance barn for more late night music and fun.  With both Cally and Guy being in the entertainment industry, it was only fitting to see some celebrities cutting loose. The night was pure perfection and one to remember.

Ashley, Andrew and their families are the nicest people–very thoughtful, appreciative and creative! Ashley and Andrew hoped for a beautiful, vintage wedding and with the help of the scenery from Scholls Valley Lodge, and Natalia‘s coordination skills,  they were able to do just that. The bride and her mom custom made all of the table numbers, banners/signs, and candy station. Scholls Valley Lodge is a beautiful and unique barn like setting with the ability to use the space in multiple different ways.

Ashley and Andrew’s ceremony was held on a stunning lawn surrounded by huge trees.  They said their vows under a custom made arch while guests cheered and waved custom made wands.

 After the ceremony guests made their way to the lower lawn for cocktail hour but not before signing a wooden bench that acted as their guest book. During cocktail hour guests were also escorted to the speakeasy bar on the upper deck of the lodge where Ashley’s Dad provided specialty cocktails made with Pendleton Whiskey (where he is the VP).

When clients come in searching for a venue with a beautiful view, Waverley is usually at the top of our list!  Ashley & Chris chose to have their Waverley wedding at this traditional country club and certainly threw an affair to remember.  With quite a bit of family involvement, Nora made sure everyone was happy with a striking navy & white color scheme, unique musical choices, an elegant monogram adorning the printed items and other wedding details and a packed dance floor courtesy of Precious Byrd.  Both families were an absolute pleasure to work with and the wedding day could not have gone any more smoothly.  These two are a stunning couple and we’re sure will have a very happy life together!

This group of girlfriends is absolutely adorable.  We were lucky enough to plan Sarah’s (second from the left) wedding a few short months later!

Asking bridesmaids to be in your wedding is such a fun task and something we are always asked about. We decided to put together a simple, fun and cost effective way to ask each friend or family member for a little inspiration!

DSC_0248

Step 1: Gather all your supplies.

Here are some fun ideas for supplies:

Mini Champagne bottle– We love all things glitter so we decided to spray paint the bottle of champagne with gold glitter paint.

Nail polish– Grab a bottle in a coordinating wedding tone.

Ring– Little rings or pieces of jewelry can be found online for pretty inexpensive. It’s a fun detail to gift your bridesmaids!

Sign– How cute is this celebration sign? Get crafty and create you own card to ask each bridesmaid. Here is a balloon filled with confetti that instructs each girl to inflate, pop and then celebrate. Ridiculously adorable.

Packaging: Grab a good size box, packaging supplies and don’t forget cute ribbon or twine!

DSC_0249

Step 2: Package

If you are mailing your boxes make sure to package them safely. If you are hand delivering we recommend doing a little layering so there are lots of fun surprises when opened.

 DSC_0245

Step 3: Card & Mail

Make sure to write a personal note to each bridesmaids and attach to the top. Then either mail or hand deliver to each girl!

Jighna and Sarthak met online and could not have been more perfect for one another. When they met, Jighna lived in Portland and Sarthak lived in Seattle- but both had a love and appreciation for the beautiful NW. So when it came time for them to plan their wedding, they wanted their guests to experience all their favorite things from the Pacific NW. Jighna and Sarthak absolutely fell in love with Resort at the Mountain after seeing the beautiful outdoor spaces. Being surrounded by all the natural elements created a perfect foundation for the overall design and theme. Jighna and Sarthak were an amazing couple from start to finish. The Indian wedding weekend was a 4 day celebration with family and friends flying in from all over the world coordinated by Elizabeth. They did a wonderful job honoring their family history and traditions while incorporating fun details of their own.

JighnaSarthak-PreWedding-011

Jighna and Sarthak invited all their family and friends over to help kick off the wedding weekend celebration with a Mehndi Night. The girls enjoyed receiving henna drawings on their hands and feet. It is believed that the darker and deeper the henna stains the more the husband and the in-laws will love her bride. As you can see – Jighna’s henna was very dark and so she is clearly in for a long & happy life.

The couple decided to do their own twist on a typical Sangeet.  They wanted it to be a more relaxed laid back feel, with food, drinks, entertainment, and in an outdoor space so that guests could enjoy the incredible views of the area.

Their Baraat was a large processional full of color, music and traditions. Sarthak and his family travels through the streets, singing and dancing, making their way to the ceremony. Sarthak rode a traditional white horse and led the procession with the help of a Dohl Player providing the beats for the music.
