Giving Back!

I love our team for many reasons.  One of which is the girls’ willingness and excitement to give back and donate their time helping our local community.

Last week a few of us spent the afternoon at The Blanchet House serving lunch and touring their impressive facilities.  Blanchet House’s mission is “to feed, clothe and offer shelter and aid to those in need” and they do it in a very inspiring fashion.  The day was such a wonderful experience that we’ve decided to make it a regular event for our team.

In addition to The Blanchet House, our coordinators are involved in several local charities including Leve, Friends of Trees, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Junior League of Portland and Bradley Angle.

2013 Awards!

Monday, July 29th, 2013


Every year, Oregon Bride Magazine hands out “Best Of Bride” awards for the wedding industry.  Past clients, friends and family are given the opportunity to vote for their favorite  professionals in the industry.  This year, the voting had a new twist…instead of just one round, finalists were named and then a second round of voting (reserved for wedding vendors only) decided who the actual winners would be! 

I am THRILLED to share that Bridal Bliss won FOUR separate awards!

Best All Around Wedding Vendor

Best Wedding Planner

Best Day-Of Coordinator 

People’s Choice Award (most votes from the first round of voting)

Thank you so much to each and every one of you that took the time to vote for us!!  This is such a huge honor and we are so very much appreciative.  Knowing that our peers made the final decision makes it all that much sweeter.  We love what we do and to be recognized is incredibly humbling.  


Our team this year is the best its ever been.  I love each of these ladies and their level of talent never ceases to amaze me.  It is because of each one of these wonderful ladies’ dedication to our clients that our company has such a great reputation.


This year’s event to announce the award recipients had a “white” theme and was so much fun.  From fab cocktails to amazing decor and a darling cupcake display…it was an event not to be missed!  


Take a peek at the video recap.

Rocked 2013

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

We were so thrilled to be a part of the second annual Rocked at the Nines bridal show sponsored by Portland Bride & Groom Magazine! While last year’s show was a blast, this year’s was even more of a smashing success.

Our area, appropriately named “Rocked with Style” came with this description…”Experience modern glam through a wedding styled with fashion forward patterns and shades of bold amethyst, chic lavender, and elegant silver.  Our fresh vibe is complete with a romantic ceremony, reception designed with an edge, sexy bar, over the top table settings and a trend setting ombre dessert display.”



What do you think?


The talented vendors in our space were Zest Floral, Peter Corvallis Productions, Blissfully Sweet, Anna’s Bridal Boutique, Crave Design, Artisan Cake Company and  Holland Studios

Pantone says to go green for 2013!

Tuesday, December 18th, 2012

Every December, a color of the year to come is named by Pantone…the authority on all things color related.  This year, the chosen color is Emerald Green.  They describe the color as “Lively.  Radiant.  Lush… A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.”

I have to be honest, initially I wasn’t thrilled by this tone.  However…the more I look at it, the more I like it.  Emerald is a very flattering color (lucky bridesmaids!), and looks crisp and clean against whites, or rich and elegant with other jewel tones.  There is so much you can do with it, and it can certainly make a statement.

What do YOU think??  Do you remember what Pantone named as 2012′s color?  Click here to find out!

Getting Crafty With Geranium Lake!

Thursday, December 13th, 2012

Last week the gals at Geranium Lake Flowers treated us to a SUPER fun day at their shop assembling wreaths and sipping yummy cider.  Although not all of our team members could make it, those of us that did had such a great time getting crafty!

From an assortment of nuts, to ornaments to cinnamon to ribbon….we were setup with all kinds of fun supplies and hot glue to make it all come together.

Getting crafty!

How cute is sweet Aryana’s face poking out the side of her pack??

Thanks so much Kim, Natalie and everyone at Geranium Lake….we had a great time chatting and designing!  We love working with you!!
