Trend Alert: Floral Chandeliers!

Thursday, March 5th, 2015

0410_CRAVEN_WEB_0197

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!

Monday, December 29th, 2014
Rutter_Stephenson_Wedding-166
Kelsey and Josh were a darling couple right from the beginning. Elizabeth knew planning was going to be fun when they started talking details about the urban chic wedding. Kelsey and Josh both had incredible style and their wedding was nothing short of that. Left Bank Annex was the perfect venue; a mix of modern and classic provided us with an excellent backbone for the wedding designs to begin unfolding. From an amazing table design to Salt & Straw late night no detail went missed at this fab wedding. Kelsey & Josh’s guests loved being a part of a wedding that truly represented the couple and celebrated until the wee hours of the night with a very full dance floor!

Kelsey ww review
We submitted this wedding for publication but unfortunately our timing was off.  Regardless, what Kelsey wrote is so great that I have to share!
Josh and I go back to Middle School, where we were nothing but strangers who passed 
in the halls.  We became friends in High School, where we attended our Senior Prom together.  
We chose separate paths after High School, spending the next four years at rival Universities.  
Through mutual friends, we reconnected three years later and quickly became inseparable.  On 
September 9, 2012, while on a hike at Wahclella Falls, Josh, with our dog Cassius by his side, got 
down on his knee and proposed.  That unforgettable moment took place in front of a beautiful 
waterfall and was captured on film by a stranger, who somehow knew what was about to 
happen.
 
The wedding plans began immediately.  With the help of our wedding coordinator, we 
chose our venue, Left Bank Annex, an industrial building in downtown Portland.  “Urban Chic” 
became the theme for further wedding inspiration. All the details (glasses, stemware, 
silverware, plates and menus) all had to be modern and clean.  I chose blush accents in my 
flowers and napkins to compliment my neutral color scheme.   The metal table numbers went 
perfectly with the industrial venue and the centerpieces, along with mirrored vases and varying 
heights of floating votive candles added to the touch of elegance and romance that we 
envisioned.  To add to the fun of the reception, we treated our guest to “Salt and Straw”, 
Portland’s favorite ice cream shop, as they scooped their unique flavors such as Coffee and 
Bourbon, Sea Salt Caramel, Honey Lavender.  Being that Mac & Cheese is my favorite food, we 
decided that serving an elegant version as a late night treat would be the perfect solution to 
satisfy the late night cravings!
 
Despite all the beautiful details, the best part of my wedding day was my walk down the 
aisle.  Although this is what I was most nervous for, having my dad by my side and future 
husband in tunnel vision, it was a feeling that cannot be described.  We were honored and 
extremely fortunate to have so many family and friends present to witness our vows and love 
we share for one another.  That, hands down, is the reason why September 7th 2013, was, thus 
far, the best day of our lives.

Mike & Molly’s Crystal Ballroom Wedding

Thursday, December 11th, 2014

Mike and Molly‘s summer solstice wedding at the Crystal Ballroom was the perfect blend of elegance, glamour, and whimsical fun!  With Whiskey Manhattans and refreshing Moscow Mules to kick off their cocktail hour, guests were soon dancing the night away to the jazzy melodies of The Essentials band.  Great music was the theme of the night, with each table named for a famous musician.  For ceremony music a friend of the bride and groom played cello, accompanied by a violinist, and composed a special arrangement of “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” for Mike and Molly‘s recessional.  The evening ended on a sweet note, with a variety of pies  in lieu of wedding cake, and platters of Voodoo Doughnuts as favors for the guests!  As they were leaving, guests were presented with bouquets of the gorgeous reception flowers designed by a friend of the bride’s mother, gathered from the table arrangements set in eclectic vintage glass bottles.  Surrounded with great friends and family, gathered from all across the country, Mike and Molly kept the fun going with a casual afterparty at Ringlers.  What a night!  Congratulations to Mike and Molly!

Casey & John’s Joel Palmer House Wedding

Thursday, November 20th, 2014
Casey and John’s elegant wedding at the Joel Palmer House in Dayton, Oregon was just as timeless and elegant as they both are. The bride is a true southern belle and made sure that every last detail was accounted for. Their wedding featured rich gold and navy blue hues that included a few personal touches for their out of town guests, like Oregon pint glasses. After guests feted on a one of kind dinner from the famous chef’s at the Joel Palmer House, guests were treated to a lively performance by the band Soulmates.

Joslin & Kevin’s Wedding at Long Farm Barn!

Thursday, November 6th, 2014

14-0621cach-0459

Joslin and Kevin really wanted their wedding day to be a fun party filled will great food, drinks, and dancing. When they found Long Farm Barn they just knew it was the perfect fit and begin planning with Meghan. After getting married under the beautiful tree on the property, they made the historic 1900 barn the focal point by having their dinner take place in the garden. Guests sat at family style tables decorated with burlap and lace runners made by the mother of the bride and beautiful floral arrangements. Two Girls Catering BBQ’d an incredible dinner onsite. Guests then moved inside the barn where Kevin’s uncle kicked off the dancing with his band, Chihuahua Desert. Chad Dowling Productions continued the with a jam packed dance floor- the bride and groom even crowd surfed!

Hayley & Peter’s Perfect PAM Wedding

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

 

140329-056

Hayley & Peter had a perfect PAM wedding back in March.  These two come from amazing families, and I truly enjoyed getting to know them throughout planning.  Hayley & Peter met through Christian Mingle and definitely a match made in heaven.  The ceremony was so thoughtful, and it was obvious to everyone that these two are so in love.  My first meeting was with Susan, Hayley’s mom, who described the bride’s sense of style as Kate Spade meets Pottery Barn.  We infused that look with whites, ivories, and blush tones at First Congregational Church and The Portland Art Museum to create a truly elegant event.  I loved it!

Hayley honored her late father by attaching a necklace he had given her to her bouquet.  He had recently passed, and from the stories I heard he was a truly wonderful man.  His presence was certainly felt!Hayley Anderson1

Shay & Andy’s Downtown Wedding

Monday, September 29th, 2014

14-0301labray-1373

I love weddings with a intimate, warm and cozy vibe, and Shay & Andy‘s downtown wedding was just that.  With a ceremony at First Presbyterian Church and a reception following at The Sentinel with many many detail items to set, Elizabeth had her hands full. The weather held out for us and the black and gold art deco design was perfect in the Governor Ballroom.  My favorite part?  Shay’s elegant gown from Anna’s Bridal that she zipped off during dancing to reveal a sassy cocktail dress perfect for dancing!

Stephanie & Stephen’s Oregon Golf Club Wedding

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

Stephanie & Stephen’s OGC wedding was a perfectly planned affair with a New England vibe.  This is such a sweet and fun couple, and Stephen’s smile is electric (especially when he first saw his bride)! While the rain was not planned, it brought with it a cozy magical feel that really added to the day.   We tried to mix it up by having the ceremony staged on the side of the rose garden, which is quite different than a standard Oregon Golf Club event.  The reception tent was gorgeous with wood tables, and a fresh palate of white, tangerine and gold. Guests enjoyed a seated meal and a photo booth complete with puppets created to look like the bride and groom.  As if that wasn’t enough, a sweet and savory waffle cart and Salt & Straw ice cream arrived late night!  Take a peek–

Pretty Preppy Feature

Thursday, September 11th, 2014

Here at Bridal Bliss we coordinate weddings of all different styles and colors.  However, my personal favorite look is a design scheme with a little bit of prep added to the mix.  So, when Oregon Bride Magazine asked me to create a six page spread with the look of my choice….there had to be some preppy details included in the feature!  Elizabeth Corr and I  took the season’s hottest color, blush pink, and added in bold geometric patterns to design a scheme that really popped.  What do you think?
