Yesterday, Cathy Marshall from Channel 8 contacted me to film a segment about trends for the upcoming wedding season. Take a peek at my interview that aired on KGW news and King 5 news in Seattle! What do you think?
We are honored to have be chosen as a top wedding planning firm by Bride’s Magazine yet again! Such a thrill to be considered in the same league as Yifat Oren & Sasha Souza. This time, they asked us to submit our favorite wedding venues in the northwest…two of which made it into their “Best Venues in America” article in the February issue.
Katherine & Dan were married at First Congregational Church with a reception following at The Portland Art Museum. Katy pulled all of the details together including some seriously amazing ceremony music (the bride is a music professor at Lewis & Clark). She wrote a song for her new husband and had a group of over twenty friends sing a Capella. Totally magical.
Margaret & Brad were married at Long Farm Barn this last summer. This venue is naturally gorgeous, and the barn adds such a fun element for dancing. This couple and the mother of the bride worked with Elizabeth and definitely made sure no detail was overlooked! Fun fact…both the bride and groom are basketball players and the groom even plays pro!

Yes, that is correct- even the kids at your wedding can have a bar! Let them get a little wild and have some fun with a hot chocolate bar. Using large beverage containers offer hot chocolate at a warm temperature. The bar can include all of the fixins so the kids can customize their own drinks. Here are some toppings that are sure to be a hit: whip cream, chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, sprinkles, maraschino cherries, marshmallows, peppermint sticks, chocolate chips, and cookie crumbles.

Taylor & Jaren’s wedding was held at the property of the bride’s parents in Wilsonville. Natalia coordinated the festivities, which included some super cute details. From glowing sky lanterns, to a darling lemonade stand, to a well loved cigar bar, to a beautiful couple…everything about this event was fun! Take a peek–

Creating a wedding registry is fun, but it can also be overwhelming, time consuming, and even difficult. We are frequently asked for registry recommendations and even sometimes to help with registry gift selections. That’s why we were pretty excited when we stumbled upon newly launched Blueprint Registry, the first wedding registry platform that helps you create a wedding registry based on the layout of your home.
Blueprint Registry allows for you to search for gifts based on your personal style and home layout. They give you a visual representation of how the gifts will fit into your life or home along with quantity and style recommendations.
It is important to create a registry that is easily accessible for your wedding guests and Blueprint Registry does just that. It’s a one-stop-shop for you & your wedding guests, making the registry process seamless and easy for both parties. Blueprint Registry works with large well-known stores like Crate & Barrel, William-Sonoma, West Elm, Amazon and more. In addition they also work with small designers and boutiques offering a wide range of high quality gifts.
There are fun features scattered throughout the website that make registering more fun and personal. But over here at Bridal Bliss, we think the best two features of the site are the Group Gifting option and the Thank You & Easy Return Guide.
The Group Gifting feature gives you the ability to allow multiple guests to contribute to larger ticketed items on your wish list. You have the ability to set the number of guests that can contribute to each gift, so the price point per person on a group gift is up to you!
The Thank You List and Easy Return Guide include a purchase summary and return summary for each gift, organized by vendor. You will be able to view each gift purchased along with the purchasers name and contact information- making writing your thank you notes a breeze!
