There is no better way to kick off a new year than by celebrating with all of your friends and family…and that is exactly what Mihael and Evan decided to do! This fab wedding took place at Sandbox Studio and definitely didn’t disappoint–take a peek!
I adore the simplicity of this cake!

It seems that guys are getting more and more creative when it comes to popping the question, and proposal videos are going viral on a regular basis. I just heard about a local proposal that is truly unique through my brother, who happens to be friends with the proposer himself! This groom, who works as a video game artist, created his own Super Mario-like adventure. The ending knocked the socks off of Angel…his bride to be. Take a peek!

I love winter weddings, especially those around the holidays. Take a peek at this beautiful Governor Hotel event. The ceremony was held in the Renaissance Ballroom and the reception was in the Library Room. The decor was beyond elegant with touches of whites, champagnes, golds and holiday garlands. The entire feel of this day was warm and intimate–so lovely!

It is such an honor for us to work with military couples and to be able to give back to those that are serving our country. Eunji & Edmund were one of those couples and Emily worked with them to plan a local wedding in December while they were stationed in Korea. The wedding was held at the Governor Hotel downtown Portland and incorporated a traditional Korean ceremony, saber arch, guys in uniform and pops of fuchsia!

If this is your first holiday as a married couple think about gifting your vows in a special way. Here are some creative ideas for incorporating your vows into a gift.

Ornament: Cut the various sentences of your vows into long strips. Using a clear glass ornament, fill the ball with the strips of paper. The ornament will look like it is filled with paper, but upon closer inspection you will be able to see words from your vows.

Canvas or Wood Panel: Print your vows on a large canvas or wood panel to hang in your house. Through Etsy there are multitudes of ways to have your vows printed. You can select a color, font and style that best matches your personalities.

Pillow or Blanket: Have your wedding vows printed on fabric. Depending on the size of font and the fabric selected, you can create a blanket or pillow. Contact your local craft store to learn about places that offer fabric printing.

Cuff Links: gift your groom a pair of cuff links with the words from your vows printed on each one. There are a couple of different shops in Etsy that offer this as a gift.

There are so people in my life that I am incredibly thankful for today and everyday. From my family and friends to my rock star Bridal Bliss team, to all the wonderful wedding professionals that I have the pleasure of calling colleagues and friends. Most of all today, I am thankful for this little game-changer.
Wishing you and yours a very happy Thanksgiving and holiday season.
Your support means the world to me. Now go eat some pumpkin pie!
Lawn games are taking over at outdoor weddings and we love it! Lawn games are fun and inexpensive entertainment for guests of all ages. We have found that guests love the laid back feel that lawn games bring to a wedding. Here are some of our favorites…
Ladder Golf , Bocce Ball, Lawn Jenga, Horseshoes, Croquet, Corn Hole, Badminton, & Ring Toss.
Lots of these games can be rented through local rental companies, so before running out and purchasing check around town. Also, check in with friends to see if you can borrow a few for the day!
