Inspiration Shoot!

Monday, June 27th, 2011

We were nothing less than thrilled to join a group of some of Portland’s finest wedding professionals to work on an inspiration shoot.  Everything took place at Lan Su Chinese Gardens and the models are a real couple getting married in a few months.  The photos by the fabulous Jessica Hill turned out amazingly gorgeous.  I hope this bring YOU a little wedding inspiration—enjoy!

Jennifer + Mike’s wedding featured on Style Me Pretty!

Sunday, June 19th, 2011

Style Me Pretty is (in my opinion) easily one of the best wedding blogs out there today.  They regularly add new posts featuring amazing weddings, darling engagement sessions and great details.  The posts are always very detailed and include fabulous photos that really make you drool. 

 A great resource on Style Me Pretty’s website is The Little Black Book.  It is a state by state guide to a group of hand-picked wedding professionals that the site’s staff consider the best of the best.  We are beyond honored to be a part of of the Little Black Book and also to have had a few weddings recently featured on the blog!

A few days ago,  Style Me Pretty featured Jennifer + Mike’s urban wedding with a Persian twist !  Jennifer & Mike had a fabulous fall wedding that began with an intimate traditional Persian ceremony at the home of the bride’s parents followed by a blowout reception at Pure Space.   Jennifer was a dream bride—she has a really fun personality and came to us with good idea of what she wanted, but didn’t know how to pull it all together.  We took her colors (turquoise, fuchsia and eggplant), added a peacock feather motif and planned a wedding that none of her guests will soon forget.

From the welcome baskets to the place settings, to the cutting cake, little pieces of the Peacock theme were incorporated throughout.  (Peacock is also symbolic for Persians because the Peacock Throne is the name of the throne used by former Persian Kings.)

The wedding was absolutely stunning, and Style Me Pretty did a great job showing off all of the amazing elements.  Click here for the full gallery of images!

5 Year Old & Marriage

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

A friend of mine sent me this darling you tube video of a super dramatic 5 year old girl that refuses to get married until she has a job.  I laughed so hard watching this that I just have to share it with you.  She will make a great client one day!


2011 Best of Bride Party!

Tuesday, June 7th, 2011

Every year Oregon Bride Magazine hosts a fabulous party to celebrate the release of their Fall/Winter issue.  Not only is the magazine stunningly gorgeous, this next issue will be a featuring a Bridal Bliss wedding as well as an “Unveiled” spread styled by yours truly.  Just as exciting—the 2011 winners of the Best of Bride Awards are announced at the event.  The winning companies are voted on by brides and wedding professionals so it is certainly an exciting award to receive.

I am thrilled to have the opportunity to help coordinate this year’s Best of Bride Party at The Oregon Historical Society!  We will be bringing elements of the magazine to life at the event and also feature an amazing runway show with real Oregon brides–definitely a fun, new twist!    In addition, you will have the opportunity to taste yummy appetizers and cocktails and enjoy some great music and entertainment.  Brides attending the event will receive a swanky grab bag  to take home. 

One of the perks of planning the event is that I have been given a limited number of free tickets to give out to YOU.  Leave a comment on this post if you would like to attend this event!

Beyond the Strapless Dress

Friday, June 3rd, 2011

When you think of many of your friends’ past weddings and the bridal gown that they wore, you probably remember your girlfriend in a strapless dress.  The strapless neckline has long been a wedding staple but there are so many other flattering necklines and shapes out there to consider.  Take a peek at my segment with Kim Maus (a Bridal Bliss bride!) on KPTV Channel 12’s More Good Day Oregon for a few tips on how to mix things up when it comes to your wedding gown.  All of the gowns were provided by Anna’s Bridal!
