Natalie & Tyler

Friday, June 29th, 2012

Natalie and Tyler were SUCH a great couple to work with.  Both were super busy with work, but really wanted their wedding to be an event that their guests would remember.  Alene, Natalie’s sweet mom, was super involved in the planning and her excitement over the big event was contagious.

The wedding day was perfect—it went off without a hitch and was the perfect representation of Natalie & Tyler and their life as a couple.  It was one of those special events where the energy and the excitement for the bride and groom, and the new union was absolutely electrifying.  Guests had an amazing time…so much so that the couple added on over two hours for the band to keep the party going!

Take a peek at their video recap by Shields Films below, and click here for a slideshow of stunning images by Holland Studios.

New Wedding Wire Reviews!

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

Here at Bridal Bliss we insist on providing our brides with the highest level of services, throughout planning and on the wedding day itself.  It is so nice knowing that the time and effort which have culminated into one magical event are truly appreciated.  That is why we LOVE when past clients take the time to write online reviews!

We have several five star reviews on Wedding Wire, and below is our most recent glowing review from a darling bride, married just a few short weeks ago.

Hiring Bridal Bliss is a MUST for anyone planning a wedding in the Portland area! 
We worked with Katy, and she was absolutely fantastic to work with.  We hired her as a Day-Of wedding planner, but we met with her several times in the months leading up to our wedding.  She helped us create a framework of what we needed to do and when, which was super helpful.  After we hired all of our vendors, she communicated with all of them in advance to coordinate and plan for the wedding day – this was a HUGE stress reliever!  She was so responsive and prompt with every question that we asked of her. 
Most importantly, my family, bridesmaids, and I didn’t have to worry at all about the wedding day.  Everything that Katy was in charge of coordinating went off flawlessly.  We just got to have fun, dance, and enjoy the night.  Hiring a Day-Of planner is worth every penny you will spend.  We had a FANTASTIC experience with Katy, and we cannot recommend her or Bridal Bliss highly enough.

Did you love working with us?  Leave a review here!

Who is your hero: That is tough, I think I have two. My grandfather, a retired Seattle Police Office and US Marshal. He is the definition of generosity and unconditional love. And second, my grandmother, who began teaching me at a young age the importance of throwing a good party and how to be a hostess with the mostess. Both have helped shape who I am today!

One interesting fact that not many people know about you: I can talk with my mouth closed, it’s weird.
