Stephie & Andrew’s wedding was especially important to us, as Stephie is a past Bridal Bliss assistant!  We were so excited to be a part of her Aurora Colony Vineyards wedding and it all came together flawlessly.  The venue was stunning, the sun was shining and everyone had a good time.  I like the vineyard couple pics almost as much as I love the photos with Stephie and her twin sister.  Take a peek!

I love working at Waverley Country Club.  The setting could not be more gorgeous, and it just has such a formal, old school feel. Mix in some preppy stripes and you have a fun, festive event.  Erica & Matt’s wedding had it all…personal touches, fab decor, and a party that left everyone hurting the next morning.  Enjoy!

I’m just going to say it…this couple is ridiculously cute.  It was so hard going through all of Anne & Adam’s photos and choosing my favorites because their smiles are so big and genuine in all of them!  It was very obvious that this couple had a great time at their Cooper Mountain Vineyards wedding.  Anne & Adam worked with Emily and incorporated some really unique details.  From her gorgeous gown, to the awesome photo displays, to the super cute signage…. this wedding was a gem!

If you know me, you know I love Prosecco.  Lets not kid ourselves….I don’t discriminate against champagne or sparkling wine, but when I have the choice I prefer the fruitiness of a chilled glass of Prosecco.  So, when I heard that La Marca came out with new mini bottles, I just had to share!  These could be such a fun addition as a wedding favor, served with a striped straw as a welcome pre-ceremony drink,or even adorning a table at a bridal shower.  The baby blue label is chic and elegant and you can purchase a mini as low as $5 each!

Lamarca(pp_w709_h393)

According to La Marca, Prosecco has quickly become one of the most successful sparkling wine types made today. Prosecco is made from the white grape, Glera. This expressive grape is prized for its delicate flavors and aromatics. Prosecco is made through the Charmat method, which creates a delicate effervescence and a food-friendly palate.

We are always so excited to see one of our weddings featured in print.  So, when Portland Bride & Groom decided to show off Sara & Chad’s wedding in their Summer/Fall 2014 issue, we were thrilled!  The whole article is very well done, and I really love the very end of the Q&A where Sara & Chad are asked for advice to other couples.  The response was “hire a local wedding planner–they felt hiring Bridal Bliss was the best money they spent.” If that isn’t an amazing complement I don’t know what is!!  A blog post with more photos from this fab wedding coordinated by Elizabeth are coming soon so be sure to check back.  Until then, enjoy Portland Bride & Groom’s write up and photos by Altura Studio!

If you loved Nicole & Tyler’s Waverley wedding we posted earlier this week as much as I did, I’m sure you’re dying to see more!  Click here for their feature on Style Me Pretty, and here for more photos from the uber talented Ben Pigao!  Enjoy this highlight video of their day from the talented crew at Shields Films.  Adore this couple!

Every season, a few clients tend to stand out from the rest.  I met Nicole and Tyler and instantly fell in love with them.  They share a love that is true and unique, and wanted nothing more than to celebrate that love with their friends and family.  Nicole & Tyler’s sense of style was chic, clean and elegant, with a touch of sass.   We were graced with ideal Oregon summer weather, our bride was stunning, the guests ooh’d and ahh’d over all of the fun details (especially the late night doughnuts!)  and we didn’t have to deal with a single hiccup.  Working with Nicole & Tyler was a dream, and their wedding did not disappoint!  Style Me Pretty couldn’t pass this Waverley event up and featured it on their blog!

No detail was overlooked from the “something blue” on Nicole’s gown, to the fabulous ceremony Chuppa, to the milk vases adorning the tables, to the band that kept guests dancing the entire night, this wedding was perfection. BEN_PIGAO_PHOTOGRAPHY_JAQUES_WEDDING_WEB-36

The gown’s sash sparkled as we had it custom made to include the bride’s late Aunt’s ten carat blue topaz (something blue.)

The black & white stripes were the perfect modern accent to the traditional country club setting.  Nicole & Tyler really took the time to personalize their event by choosing music with meaning, scattering bits and pieces of their lives throughout the wedding and especially by including family traditions and heirlooms.  BEN_PIGAO_PHOTOGRAPHY_JAQUES_WEDDING_WEB-666

Nicole’s cousins rang bells to start the ceremony in loving memory of her late Grandmother. As a young girl, she would always tell her that when Nicole got married she would be at the wedding, wearing bells.  BEN_PIGAO_PHOTOGRAPHY_JAQUES_WEDDING_WEB-763

Nicole & her dad  drove up in a 1950’s Bentley  and descended down the aisle to “Isn’t She Lovely” by Stevie Wonder, the first song they danced to when Nicole was five.

Planning an event out of the area certainly has its challenges, but it is also so much fun! Especially when that location happens to be the beautiful Durham Ranch in St. Helena near Napa!  Elizabeth worked with Whitney & John who live in San Francisco, as well as Whitney’s parents (who are local) to plan this elegant affair.  Style Me Pretty recently published the chic wedding on their site (click here for the feature)!
