We received some new fabric samples in our office today and we love the linen trends of bold patterns and colors. Don’t be afraid to mix patterns and colors for your wedding- it adds a fun dimension and element of design! Here are some of our favorites we paired together. If you are interested in renting linens for your wedding, we can help!

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!

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!

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!
These photos are some of my favorites of the season–how cute is this couple?!?

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!
I mean seriously, how cute are these kiddos??
Two of the sweetest grandmothers I ever did see.
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!

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 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–

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?
The cake design was inspired by the Kate Spade confetti design, love her clean, sassy and chic look!
