Katy worked with Sarah & JJay on this beautiful Temple & Private Residence wedding.  The charming outdoor reception boasted beautiful grounds, super fun lawn games and a s’mores bar enough to make your mouth water.  Everything from the guys’ attire, to the darling bridesmaids dresses to the going away dress is to die for!  Take a peek!

Leslie & Devon’s Waverley Beauty

There are some clients you connect with more than others, and I fell in love with Leslie the moment I met her.  She is carefree, beautiful and has an inner strength amid the trials that life has thrown her way.  The three of us had such a wonderful time planning their November wedding together and the end result couldn’t have been more beautiful.  The navy, blush and champagne color palette was drop dead gorgeous.  Quite frankly, I think everything about this Waverley wedding was drop dead gorgeous.  From the dreamy plexi and candle ceremony, to the elegant gold up-lighting to the amazing florals…there was nothing not to love.  Take a peek!

Once dancing got started, we set out pashminas with a note that read “to have and to hold, and keep you from the cold” with instructions to head outside at 9:30 PM where guests would be surprised with firework show!nev_425

For those that over-imbibed…a hangover helper station was just the right touch.nev_567

Gavin turns 1 with a sunshine themed birthday bash!

Wednesday, March 26th, 2014

IMG_0080

When you first become a parent, everyone warns you how fast time flies.  It is so cliche, but so true!  We celebrated my son Gavin’s first birthday last week and I’m still in denial that a whole year has already passed since we met him.  If you’ve been reading this blog for a while or following me on Facebook, you know that the little guy decided to come into the world two months early.  After spending a month in the NICU and watching Gavin grow this past year…we felt the need to really celebrate!  He is a healthy, hilarious and happy little boy.  If you ever want to make Gavin smile, all you have to do is sing “You are my sunshine” to him and he will immediately light up.   I decided to take that and run with a fun theme.  For everyone that keeps asking…here are a few photos from the festivities at our home!

I have the worst sweet tooth ever, so a dessert display was a given!  Did you know that Bridal Bliss now designs dessert tables for weddings??  We are launching next month and so excited about it.  More details to come soon!

My good friend, Judy Reese…owner of Dream Cakes, made this darling cake.  It was as delicious as it was beautiful, which is always the story with Judy’s amazing treats.  Thank you so much Judy!

Another good friend, Lisa from Crave Design, printed up all the signs, tags and labels.  They turned out so cute–thanks Lisa!

Gavin getting spoiled by his Grandmas…as usual.  It pays to be the first grandchild on both sides of the family!

The Grandpas were not to be outdone…

Loved having so many close friends celebrate with us.

In an effort to keep the kiddos entertained, we setup a coloring station to fit the theme.

He wasn’t quite sure what to do with the cake initially….

…then he got a taste and slowly dug right in!

I would say he enjoyed his first taste of sugar!

This might be my favorite photo of the whole party…deliriously tired and opening presents with a sugar high from such a fun day.

Gavin got another shot at a cake smash the next day with a family party.  Can’t celebrate this guy enough!

It has been such a joy to watch this little guy grow up.  We are thankful beyond words to our “village” for all the love and support this last year.  We are truly blessed.

Kristin & Danny’s Foundry Wedding

Thursday, March 6th, 2014

Kristin & Danny were married on a beautiful July day at a venue we work at quite often, The Foundry in Lake Oswego.  We originally met with Rosie, Kristin’s mom, who may go down in history as one of the sweetest mothers ever.  She was the local contact, while Kristin & Danny lived out of state and left most of the decisions to Rosie.  It all came together perfectly incorporating Kristin’s pinks, Danny’s love of hunting and the couple’s fondness of frozen yogurt!

Portland Bride & Groom Cheese

Here at Bridal Bliss, we like to mix things up and try new things so no two weddings are the same.  One fun idea that we had the opportunity to pair up with Simpatica Catering and try in a recent issue of Portland Bride & Groom Magazine was a new take on the traditional wedding cake.  For those that prefer cheese after dinner rather than sweets, this one is for you.  The bride and groom can even ceremoniously cut the “cake!”
