Melisa & Justin’s wedding at home

Monday, July 21st, 2014

We coordinated a bevy of weddings at private residences this past season, and they were each fabulous in their own way.  Natalia worked with Melisa & Justin on their summer wedding at home, which was definitely a stunner.  So many thoughtful details and unexpected elements.  My favorite are the chair ties–so beautiful and uniquely done!FritzPhoto-Phillips-001-11

Maria & Brian’s Greek Orthodox & OGC Wedding

Monday, July 14th, 2014

Brian+Maria-0167

Maria & Brian were SO much fun to plan with. They always brought a dose of humor to our meetings and were very straight forward and low maintenance.  They didn’t have particular feelings towards the design and decor, so I really was able to have fun and get creative.  Thankfully…they loved it!

Maria & Brian were married in a traditional Greek Orthodox ceremony at Holy Trinity Church.  The hour long ceremony was followed by cocktails and a reception in the clubhouse at Oregon Golf Club.

We plan quite a few events at this Oregon Golf Club, but more often than not they take place outside or in a large tent.  It was fun having the opportunity to coordinate a wedding inside the clubhouse, as it has a warm, unique and cozy feel with huge windows that show off the great view.

Gretchen & Chad’s Governor Affair

Thursday, July 10th, 2014

Gretchen & Chad’s wedding was super special to me, as Chad is a very good industry friend of mine.  We worked together on the very first wedding I coordinated back in 1999 and have been tight ever since.  Chad was the DJ at my own wedding in 2009, and has been the DJ at every party we’ve thrown since.  He has the talent of keeping a dance floor packed ALL NIGHT.

I’ve watched Chad’s darling little girl, Emma, grow up and we’ve spent many Saturdays together wedding season after wedding season. So, I was beyond honored when Chad and his beautiful bride, Gretchen, asked me to help coordinate their wedding at The Governor Hotel’s Renaissance & Billiard Rooms.  Gretchen & Chad compliment each other so well and they are both into Star Wars, goth and their pug Helga…all of which made an appearance at the nuptials.

Here is where the “goth” and first peek at “Star Wars” came into play. We had the Manhattan Monk officiate the wedding and Gretchen was set with having the lights dim way down right as he walked in and the ceremony started.  She meticulously picked out music (which was perfect) and it started out with what sounded like a somber monk chant.  Once the officiant walked down the aisle, the music brightened up and the processional began.  It was very dramatic!

Rather than a having unity candle or sand ceremony, the officiant mixed up a cocktail with liquors representing qualities of a good marriage such as trust, love, etc.  The bride and groom toasted with this cocktail and it added a nice humorous, yet meaningful, twist.  I loved it!

Stephie & Andrew’s wedding was especially important to us, as Stephie is a past Bridal Bliss assistant!  We were so excited to be a part of her Aurora Colony Vineyards wedding and it all came together flawlessly.  The venue was stunning, the sun was shining and everyone had a good time.  I like the vineyard couple pics almost as much as I love the photos with Stephie and her twin sister.  Take a peek!

Erica & Matt’s Waverley Wedding

Monday, June 30th, 2014

I love working at Waverley Country Club.  The setting could not be more gorgeous, and it just has such a formal, old school feel. Mix in some preppy stripes and you have a fun, festive event.  Erica & Matt’s wedding had it all…personal touches, fab decor, and a party that left everyone hurting the next morning.  Enjoy!

Anne & Adam’s Cooper Mountain Vineyards Wedding

Thursday, June 26th, 2014

I’m just going to say it…this couple is ridiculously cute.  It was so hard going through all of Anne & Adam’s photos and choosing my favorites because their smiles are so big and genuine in all of them!  It was very obvious that this couple had a great time at their Cooper Mountain Vineyards wedding.  Anne & Adam worked with Emily and incorporated some really unique details.  From her gorgeous gown, to the awesome photo displays, to the super cute signage…. this wedding was a gem!

Nicole & Tyler’s Classic Waverley Wedding

Monday, June 9th, 2014

BEN_PIGAO_PHOTOGRAPHY_JAQUES_WEDDING_WEB-281

Every season, a few clients tend to stand out from the rest.  I met Nicole and Tyler and instantly fell in love with them.  They share a love that is true and unique, and wanted nothing more than to celebrate that love with their friends and family.  Nicole & Tyler’s sense of style was chic, clean and elegant, with a touch of sass.   We were graced with ideal Oregon summer weather, our bride was stunning, the guests ooh’d and ahh’d over all of the fun details (especially the late night doughnuts!)  and we didn’t have to deal with a single hiccup.  Working with Nicole & Tyler was a dream, and their wedding did not disappoint!  Style Me Pretty couldn’t pass this Waverley event up and featured it on their blog!

BEN_PIGAO_PHOTOGRAPHY_JAQUES_WEDDING_WEB-154

No detail was overlooked from the “something blue” on Nicole’s gown, to the fabulous ceremony Chuppa, to the milk vases adorning the tables, to the band that kept guests dancing the entire night, this wedding was perfection. BEN_PIGAO_PHOTOGRAPHY_JAQUES_WEDDING_WEB-36

The gown’s sash sparkled as we had it custom made to include the bride’s late Aunt’s ten carat blue topaz (something blue.)

The black & white stripes were the perfect modern accent to the traditional country club setting.  Nicole & Tyler really took the time to personalize their event by choosing music with meaning, scattering bits and pieces of their lives throughout the wedding and especially by including family traditions and heirlooms.  BEN_PIGAO_PHOTOGRAPHY_JAQUES_WEDDING_WEB-666

Nicole’s cousins rang bells to start the ceremony in loving memory of her late Grandmother. As a young girl, she would always tell her that when Nicole got married she would be at the wedding, wearing bells.  BEN_PIGAO_PHOTOGRAPHY_JAQUES_WEDDING_WEB-763

Nicole & her dad  drove up in a 1950’s Bentley  and descended down the aisle to “Isn’t She Lovely” by Stevie Wonder, the first song they danced to when Nicole was five.

Planning an event out of the area certainly has its challenges, but it is also so much fun! Especially when that location happens to be the beautiful Durham Ranch in St. Helena near Napa!  Elizabeth worked with Whitney & John who live in San Francisco, as well as Whitney’s parents (who are local) to plan this elegant affair.  Style Me Pretty recently published the chic wedding on their site (click here for the feature)!

Jaclyn & Chad’s Key to Happiness

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014

Jaclyn & Chad’s wedding was one of our most detail oriented events of the season.  Emily worked with this fabulous bride to incorporate keys into several aspects of her romantic Domain Margelle Ceremony, outdoor Cocktail Hour with swanky lounges and lawn games and chic Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall Reception.  From tea carts to sprigs of lavender to darling birdcages to lace runners…there were so many moving pieces to this wedding that Emily needed FIVE assistants to execute it!  While there were truly so many amazing aspects to this wedding, I have to say that the ceremony and chandelier backdrop were my favorite.  Gorgeous!!  Click here for a True Tour, courtesy of Visiting Media.
