Jackie + Blane

 

When you ask the wedding gods for a dream couple, Jackie & Blane are just kind of lovebirds that come to answer your prayers! They had an effortless connection from the first time I met them. It was in the way that Blane supported Jackie’s vision of their wedding day, and in the way that Jackie included Blane on key decisions, that made planning so seamless. The Foundry at Oswego Pointe provided the perfect backdrop for their intimate summer celebration.

As a nutritionist and food enthusiast, it was no surprise that Jackie chose Devil’s Food Catering to feed their guests. Their farm-to-table vegan menu was a hit for both meat & veggie lovers alike! In fact, every vendor that was carefully selected by this beautiful couple, served as a recipe for success.

These Colorado natives pulled off classic black & gold elegance, meets organic rustic greenery. Classic Vintage Rentals provided the perfect lounge area for guests to mingle over-looking the river. Event Team Entertainment provided music that had everyone on their feet! Moving Pictures and Powers Photography were the perfect team to capture it all! 

Bridal Bliss was quite possibly the best investment that we made for our wedding day and worth every penny. Though I have an extensive background in event planning - I knew that I wanted a day-of coordinator so that my guests and I could enjoy the day and not have to worry about any last details. From the very beginning Bridal Bliss was professional, friendly and responsive. I was immediately surprised at how involved Kayley was with our wedding plans - even as only the day-of coordinator. We were in consistent communication and she helped with ideas, vendor recommendations and even helped me track down things that I wanted from pictures! Kayley was so discreet, quick to respond to our requests and even sent me pictures of the set-up to keep my mind at ease that all was going as planned. She was so relaxed as she worked with us throughout the day - it totally kept me at ease. Kayley was truly amazing - professional, kind, honest, supportive (when I couldn’t describe my ideas but knew what I wanted), friendly, detail-oriented and patient. I cannot say enough good things about our experience with Kayley and the entire Bridal Bliss team - they’re the absolute best!!

I'm not sure how it's possible, but Bridal Bliss turned 15 this year! It's been such an amazing ride and thinking back to how it all started and where we are today is completely overwhelming. When I created Bridal Bliss, I was on dial-up internet, there was no such thing as Instagram or Pinterest, the odds that a company even had a website were less than 50/50 and cell phones were just becoming a common necessity!  I was fresh out of college, young and naive, but determined to make it in the wedding industry. Today, we have a stellar team and plan upwards of 150 weddings each year in Portland, Seattle, Bend and beyond. The professionals we have the opportunity to work with knock our socks off on a regular basis, and the relationships we have forged with our clients are so meaningful. Our team? Such an amazing group of creative women.

To celebrate the milestone, we threw a big party and invited all of our past clients, local wedding professionals, family and friends.  We hosted the event at The Foundry at Oswego Pointe and had a bevy of vendor friends that helped make it possible! We welcomed guests to the event with a super yummy (and potent!) shot from Merit Badge, and then upstairs there was a puppy snuggling station, tattoo bar, tasty treats, a La Croix ice display, donut bar and amazing music, amongst other fun. It was such a special night and so fun to so and reconnect with so many past couple!

My sincere appreciation goes out to everyone who came to celebrate with us, and all those who have supported Bridal Bliss over the last 15 years!
