Ashley + Dincer

 

It's funny how life works! Ashley and I have crossed paths at many different times over the last 15 years. It started at the University of Portland and from there Portland kept us in touch in various ways. When Ashley got engaged she emailed me about helping them plan their wedding. What I didn't know is how much fun I would have with her on this journey! Ashley and Dincer are two of the most fun loving people. They have a sense of humor & zest for life that kept us laughing throughout all of wedding planning. 

They landed on The Benson Hotel for their wedding day, which provided a glamorous backdrop to their spring wedding. As guests arrived they were greeted with a glass of bubbly, and a confetti bar (talk about a party!). Guests helped themselves to creating little cones of confetti to toss after Ashley & Dincer said I do. During cocktail hour guests were welcome to sit for a caricature drawing by Barbara Pikus. Guests loved the fun alternative idea plus the take home of sketch!

Blum Floral designed stunning flowers to help bring the spring blossoms inside. Featuring colorful shades of pink, whites and green with blooming cherry blossoms, the flowers were a show stopper. Ashley & Dincer sprinkled personalized touches throughout the wedding including head table place cards & table numbers on geode slices, Ashley's parents wedding cake topper, a Salt & Straw ice cream bar, and baklava wedding favors (thanks to Dincer's family). 

After dinner, guests danced the night away as Event Team kept the good tunes going all night. It was one heck of a wedding and we love how Mosca & J&M captured all the feels from the day. We were so thrilled to be apart of their day and wish them a life full of laughter and love!

Carolyn + Scott

 

Carolyn and Scott met with Bridal Bliss over a year before their wedding date and got right to work with ELIZABETH. The couple wanted to wow their guests and have touches of a Gatsby theme carried throughout the night! After visiting a few venues Carolyn and Scott quickly settled on THE BENSON HOTEL. The Benson’s beautiful chandeliers, over-sized fireplace and gorgeous staircases offered the perfect art deco feel for the wedding. The ceremony was held in the Crystal Ballroom and a cocktail hour followed in The Benson’s stunning lobby.  With gorgeous flowers by BLUM FLORAL and lighting & music by PARADOX PRODUCTIONS, the ballroom was transformed. As Carolyn and Scott were introduced into the ballroom guests were on the dance floor waiting and ready to dance. After cutting a rug for a few songs and working up an appetite, guests sat down to a delicious dinner.  However it was not long until the dance floor was packed and that is how it stayed for the entire night!
