This elegant couple went all out for their dream Persian wedding at the Portland Art Museum, which was coordinated by Emily. Sadaf and Reza’s wedding featured top notch hors d’ oeuvres, desserts, entries and more from Art of Catering. The Portland Art Museum was beautifully decorated with flowers and linens in shades or cream and gold. After the traditional ceremony, guests enjoyed a sunset cocktail hour on the Portland Art Museum Sculpture Garden. But the true highlight of the night came when the bride and groom surprised their guests with a performance by Persian pop star Kamy R. Guests kept the dance floor packed the rest of the night!

and Jessica are a gorgeous couple who love wine, having a good time, eating good food, running, and their cute dog Maggie. The two’s winery wedding coordinated by Natalia
was a beautiful intimate affair at the groom’s family vineyard. Jessica & Jesse’s event had gorgeous details including a family style dinner provided by Jesse
‘s best friend (owner of Red Hills Market
), gorgeous centerpieces custom made by Jessica’s dad, and of course wine harvested, bottled, and grown on the vineyard. There were many fun moments at the reception including Jessica playing the Ukelaile during the ceremony while her best friend sang “Over the Rainbow,” along with a surprise acoustic guitar and singing set during the reception. One of our favorite parts? The stunning high-low dress!
The wedding party danced down the aisle and instead of a bouquet, the bridesmaids held filled glasses of wine!

Courtney and Robbie are huge fans of Oregon Ducks and wine! The couple wanted a beautifully sophisticated and classy wedding and Oregon Golf Club was chosen as the perfect venue. There were so many unique and custom made details that really made a big impact. Guests received tiny mason jars full of jam that Courtney & Robbie made and canned together. They also gifted their wedding party small baby barrels as gifts, in which they can actually age whiskey or wine. As a surprise, Courtney sang and recorded a special song for her dad that they danced to together for the father/daughter dance. Then, without ANYONE knowing he had done the same and surprised her with a song he had recorded so they did a second father/daughter dance. Courtney and Robbie’s golf club wedding had a fantastic mixture of elegance and fun. With beautiful runners on the head table, a club type like DJ, and an awesome dessert display this was an event to remember!

Christine and Kevin were a fun loving couple. Their goal was to have guests experience a true getaway while celebrating the wedding. After deciding on Brasada Ranch as the wedding venue, Christine and Kevin dove into planning with Elizabeth. Every decision the two made was thoughtful and planned out. They truly wanted their guests to experience an unforgettable weekend. Our favorite part of the wedding was when guests checked into their hotel rooms and were welcomed with a pizza in the fridge and a growler of local beer. Now that is a way to kick off a wedding weekend! From bright, bold flowers to a perfect sunset the day was filled with fun and love.
Love the unique cutting board guest book!

Amanda & Dylan were married on a beautiful summer day at one of our favorite venues, The Oregon Golf Club. It is refreshing to see bright vibrant tones at this beautiful wedding! The couple exchanged vows and enjoyed cocktails outside in the Pavilion. When it was time for dinner, guests were escorted into the big beautifully draped tent for a delicious meal, photo booth, dessert and lots of dancing! Just in case they had taken too many photos, Amanda & Dylan’s nearest and dearest could take advantage of the darling floral adorned phone charging station!

Beth and Mike are such a fun couple who met while singing karaoke with friends and instantly hit it off. Recognize the groom? He is a reporter on KGW Channel 8 news! Beth and Mike worked with Meghan and held their ceremony at The Madeleine Parish and celebrated their marriage with friends and family at The Foundry on a beautiful sunny spring day. Zest Floral filled the room with lush centerpieces of pinks and whites. Guests enjoyed a delicious dinner by GP Catering and decadent cakes by Le Cookie Monkey. To incorporate how they met into their wedding day Mike surprised guests by kicking off the dancing with the first song Beth heard him sing at Karaoke, Sweet Caroline- it was a hit with the guests and everyone joined in. Event Team Entertainment‘s tunes then filled the dance floor for the rest of the night! The sweetest way to end the night?

One of my favorite up and coming wedding trends is adorning chandeliers, or creating new chandeliers, out of flowers and greenery. Suspending a focal piece adds an exciting element to an event, and is unique and unexpected! If you are looking for a “wow factor,” consider floral chandeliers!

Lindsey and James are the kindest and most laid back couple and they wanted their wedding to reflect their personalities while also giving their out of town family a true look at the beauty of Oregon. They were referred to us by another 2014 couple so it was fun to work on both events simultaneously. Set just outside of Hood River, their ceremony and reception took place at the beautiful Mt. Hood Bed and Breakfast. Guests enjoyed signature cocktails on the front lawn before moving to the reception. At the reception, the guests, drank, ate and enjoyed a selection of local homemade pies and ice cream for dessert. Such a fun day!

With the bride in Las Vegas, the groom in San Francisco and family in Vancouver, BC, Portland became the ideal location for Suzette & Jonathan’s destination wedding. Showcasing all that Portland had to offer was their main focus for a fun and entertaining wedding. Katy helped plan the nuptials and was bursting with ideas! Guests were transported via school buses to the Internationally known Grotto for an Outdoor Catholic Ceremony which included also included their family’s Filipino Traditions. Next guests were brought to LeftBank Annex where they enjoyed appetizers and cocktails before the reception. It was important to Suzette for the reception decor to incorporate metallics and go with the wood beams and exposed brick inside the venue, she wanted a rustic/chic yet glamours affair. Champagne chairs, chargers and tables adorned with grays, peaches, greens, metallics with pops of navy, and a moroccan print runners on the tables along with a thank you card from the couple on each setting left all 175 guests blown away. Jonathan serenaded Suzette to Justin Beiber’s “Baby Baby” as the couple was announced in as husband and wife where then guests noshed on a fabulous meal by Devil’s Food Catering. A dessert display provided by Bridal Bliss Desserts featured a variety of delicious cakes, tarts and cookies, along with a popcorn bar with various types of popcorn for everyone to enjoy. Guests stayed entertained throughout the 7 hour reception with an open bar, great music by their DJ along with music videos playing in the background, a Photo Booth and even true to Portland style- food trucks! Ruby Jewel and Koi Fusion provided late night ice cream sandwiches and tacos for guests late into the night. The wedding was perfectly planned and was full of fab details…so much so that Oregon Bride Magazine has featured the wedding is their current issue!
The ring dog is just too cute!

Eileen and Darren envisioned a Art Deco themed wedding reception to compliment the beautiful 1920’s style engagement ring Darren popped the question with.
