Wedding Emergency Kit

Monday, July 27th, 2015

Having a wedding emergency  kit on-site at every one of our events is very important!  Sometimes we need something as small as a safety pin, and other times we need to pull out the big guns.  Check out our segment that aired on KATU’s AM Northwest last week with some suggestions of what you should stock your wedding emergency kit with!

Seattle Pre-Wedding Pictures

Seattle has so many nooks and crannies it’s always hard to pick locations for pre-wedding pictures. With Seattle being so large it is important for brides and grooms to pre plan and choose locations that are close by to their venue and not all over town. With that being said, below are some of our tried and true favorites!

Best of Bride Awards 2015

Oregon Bride Magazine Best Of Bride 2015 Award Ceremony | Eastside ExhangeBallroom, Portland Oregon | Photography by http://MoscaStudio.com #moscastudio

Last week we had the honor of attending Oregon Bride Magazine’s annual Best of Bride Party at one of Portland’s newest event venues, The Exchange Ballroom & Rooftop!  Every year they outdo themselves with unique details and the most cutting edge designs…and this year was no different!

Best part?  Bridal Bliss was named “Portland’s Best Wedding Planner” and “Portland’s Best Day Of Coordinator” of 2015, for the sixth consecutive year!  We are beyond thrilled and so appreciative of everyone that took the time to vote for us and keep our streak alive.  The magazine holds an initial vote, narrows it down to finalists and then the wedding industry makes the final decision.  That makes the awards so much more meaningful!

This team busts their butt for each and every client.  While there are many perks, being a professional wedding planner is not always glamorous (I will not get into details!).  To receive a little recognition for everything we do behind the scenes really means and lot.  Who doesn’t love a pat on the back?  This team of strong, talented and FUN women is truly amazing and inspiring.

Elizabeth with Anna & Nicole from Oregon Golf Club–one of our favorite venues, and a big winner of the night!

It was so fun to watch many collaborators in the industry accept well deserved awards (including Anna’s Bridal!), and to catch up with old friends.  Portland is so lucky to have such talented wedding professionals! Oregon Bride brought in Poison Waters to make the announcements and to say she was a riot would be an understatement.  She had us in stitches!  What a great party–thank you Oregon Bride and congrats to all of our fellow award winners and nominees!  Also–thanks to each and every one of you that took the time to vote.  Your love and support over the years is genuinely appreciated!
