Vihangi + Alex

 

Vi and Alex are such a wonderful couple and I truly enjoyed getting to know them! They had a stunning vision of vibrant florals and beautiful details for their wedding at Oregon Golf Club and wanted to make sure their guests had a great time! 

It was a sunny Fall day and they were married in the rose garden at Oregon Golf Club by one of their closest friends. Guests then enjoyed signature cocktails and appetizers on the patio before making their way into the reception tent. 

The reception tent was filled with vibrant fuchsia arrangements by Bella Bloom Florals for a fun pop of color in the white tent to match the bridesmaids Saris. Before the party got started, Jessica Hill snuck the bride and groom off for some incredible sunset photos! After, Vi and Alex were announced in to loud cheers by their friends and family and then began a traditional Sri Lankan lamp ceremony with their immediate family on the dance floor. 

Once dinner was done, DJ Zimmie kept the dance floor packed and guests were treated to dessert with S'mores from Nineteen27 S'moresdelicious cake from DreamCakesand cupcakes from Saint Cupcake. It truly was a fun celebration! Vi and Alex, it was so amazing being a part of your wedding day and getting to know you both during planning!

Charlotte + Kyle

 

Working with Charlotte and Kyle on their July 1st wedding was a dream. They selected Oregon Golf Club which provided the perfect starting point for planning an absolutely gorgeous wedding. Charlotte & Kyle both have impeccable taste and when it came time to pick vendors they hired the best to see their vision through. The ceremony was hosted in the rose gardens at Oregon Golf Club with all the roses perfectly in bloom. Everything was bright, vibrant and the 75 degree day made this garden ceremony dreamy.

After guests enjoyed cocktail hour (which included custom ice cubes) they were invited inside to a classic French garden party. Seventh Stem created lush floral arrangements that were packed full with blooming flowers and greenery. The colors were soft cool tones including, grey, steel blue, gold and white.  As the evening sunlight streamed inside - it created a perfect evening glow during dinner. After dinner guests filled the dance floor and danced the night away. To top off what was truly a perfect evening - Charlotte & Kyle ended the night with confetti cannons and a sparkler send-off. We absolutely loved this couple and couldn't be more excited for them!! 

Elizabeth at Bridal Bliss was an absolute life saver and I’m so happy we decided to hire a coordinator. Wedding planning is overwhelming and exhausting, but Elizabeth’s expertise helped the entire process run smoothly. She answered every single text and email in a timely manner and even answered emails from family members. She is organized, creative, detail oriented and best of all, so nice! During one of our final meetings at the venue she had this massive binder full of contracts, checklists, and diagrams, and I just remember thinking “I’m so glad I’m not the keeper of that binder!” With Elizabeth doing most of the heavy lifting I could enjoy our engagement without being held captive by stress. On the day of our wedding I felt relaxed and got to spend the morning with my family and friends instead of trying to manage vendors and coordinate the setup. Elizabeth made my dream wedding possible and hiring the Bridal Bliss team was the best decision we made for our wedding day!

Megan + Peter

 

You can’t help but love a beautiful wedding inside the tent at The Oregon Golf Club! That was exactly the thought that Megan Westphal and Peter Stach had when planning their fabulous June wedding, earlier this year.  The girls arrived at the golf club, after getting hair and makeup perfectly styled by Powder Inc., at the Westphal’s home in the west hills.

The couple opted to not do a first look, so they stayed tucked away while Peter and his groomsmen took photos around the golf course with Amanda K Photography.  While photos were being taken, Good Seed Floral was busy inside the tent, adorning the hanging chandeliers with custom florals and greenery for the event, which perfectly complimented the beautiful rentals from The Party Place

To start the outdoor ceremony, John Ross Music’s,  Andrew Serino, was on hand to greet guests with live accoustic guitar. Post ceremony, guests enjoyed appetizers and drinks passed by The Oregon Golf Club on the patio. Once seated for dinner, everyone watched as the lively bridal party danced their way to their seats, before Megan and Peter shared their first dance. 

Andrew Serino was on hand once more to play a live, acoustic set during dinner. After a string of beautiful toasts from friends and family, guests got a chance to enjoy a slice of cake from Beaverton Bakery, while waiting to take their turn in the photo booth provided by Snap Bar. Once full and photographed, everyone was ready to party!! The Coastline was on hand to help with this, playing an upbeat set of music from all genres. The couples sparkler exit was an amazing way to end an evening full of laughter and dancing.  Megan and Peter, I have so enjoyed getting to know you, and wish you all the best!

The moment I met Meagan and her mom, Kathy, I knew we were going to have a blast with planning Meagan & Brian’s wedding day! Meagan & Brian decided that the Oregon Golf Club would be the perfect setting for their big day and we quickly began planning to bring together an amazing team of vendors.

They envisioned getting married outside in the Oregon Golf Club Rose Garden and had the perfect day for a beautiful ceremony surrounded by friends and family. Guests enjoyed cocktail hour on the patio after a short and sweet service and then everyone was ushered into the reception tent for dinner. Elegant cream and white floral arrangements accented with greenery from Zest Florals set the tone for a their beautiful reception. After a delicious dinner, Chad Dowling Productions had the dance floor and photo booth packed all night. What a great party! Congrats you two! 

Bridal Bliss made our wedding a dream come true! Meghan Wicks was our coordinator and I don’t know what we would have done without her! From our first meeting to the big day, she made everything so smooth and easy! She put us in touch with the most amazing vendors that we quickly coined our “dream team”. I would not have traded any of them for the world! Thank you Bridal Bliss for making our day so special and one that our friends and family will remember forever!!

Jacqueline + Beau

 

I just knew I wanted to be Jacqueline & Beau’s wedding planner when I first met with Jacqueline and her mom, Carolyn. I instantly adored them … plus we shared a common love for all things Kate Spade! Throughout the planning process, we continued have so much fun chatting about all the wedding ideas and details to make the day personalized and truly capture Jacqueline and Beau as a couple. With a lovely vision of clean whites and lush greenery accented by a few Kate Spade inspired details, their wedding day was just perfect. Big thanks to Wedding Chicks for featuring this fab event!

They chose Our Lady of the Lake and Oregon Golf Club for their October wedding and the whole day was absolutely amazing. The two were so excited to see each other for their first look that you could tell how much they adore each other. Bridal party photos were then taken around the grounds… complete with Kate Spade Mr + Mrs balloons. After photos, everyone made their way to Our Lady of the Lake for a beautiful ceremony in Jacqueline’s childhood church.

 Bella Bloom Florals beautifully adorned the church with boxwood wreaths and large white bows lining the aisle and on the candlesticks… perfectly fitting Jacqueline’s style.

After the ceremony, guests made their way to Oregon Golf Club for cocktail hour and then into the tent for the reception. One of my favorite parts of working with Jacqueline and Carolyn, was hearing about how they envisioned the details of their hunter green and vanilla white color palette while also including a little touch of Kate Spade style. I would have to say it was styled beautifully! From the large, white bow ribbons to the lush centerpieces filled with greenery to the floral garland… it was all so perfect.

It was easy to adore these two and their families and I am so grateful that I got the chance to get to know them and be a part of this amazing celebration.... It truly was the BEST. DAY. EVER!!

Ashley + Andrew

 

Ahhh Oregon Golf Club, the perfect place for a beautiful white wedding. Or in Ashley & Andrew’s case, a BRIGHT pink, sassy day filled with laughter and tons of dancing!!  Everyone knew that this was going to be a fun special day. Ashley and Andrew first met in college here in Portland.  After dating for several years, Andrew proposed by renting out a theatre at Cinetopia and playing his own “Trailor” for her.  Their romance is nothing short of one from a movie.  

Ashley and Andrew were married July 1st, on a perfect sunny afternoon in West Linn, OR. On the wedding day, Ashley’s signature ear to ear smile could be seen from a mile away.  Zest Floral did a fabulous job of covering every inch of the Oregon Golf Club in hot magenta and orange garden roses.  With Ashley’s history as a dancer for the Portland Trail Blazers, we knew the party would continue well into the night only to be interrupted due to a surprise choreographed dance by the groom and his groomsmen!  It was truly that a day that embodied this gorgeous and fun couple.  Congratulations you two!

Whitney + Tony

 

If you’ve ever wondered if fairy tales do come true in the modern day, read on! Whitney and Tony’s love story began at Disney and its fairy tale magic is woven through their lives. The magic began when they met while working at Disney, and even after moving on to the next stages of their careers in Seattle the magic held sway in their hearts. So, Disneyland was a natural location for Tony to choose to surprise Whitney with a proposal!

Whitney and Tony chose to celebrate their wedding in West Linn where Whitney grew up, and we had such fun planning a beautiful wedding fit for a princess!

Romantic shades of blush, popping with gold sequin accents (look at her gorgeous bridesmaids!), all layered over an elegant cream background. Floral chandeliers suspended from the ceiling brought the lush rose garden into the ballroom, and a five-tier wedding cake made a show stopping display in the entrance. Of course, groom charming and his groomsmen looked incredibly dapper in their black tuxedos, and the twinkle in Tony’s eye was pure delight. Disney-themed props at the photo booth were a hit, and all their guests enjoyed dancing the night away...at least until the stroke of midnight when the bride and groom were sent off in their elegant carriage with magical sparklers, much love and well wishes.

I could not be more thrilled to wish this wonderful, gracious, and fun couple a happily ever after! Congratulations again, Whitney and Tony!

Hannah + Jake

 

There is something so sweet about this couple… they truly adore each other and are just so in love. I first met Hannah and her mom, Martha, as they were beginning to plan Hannah & Jake’s wedding day and just knew helping them plan the wedding would be fun! I loved getting to know them better and hear about wedding ideas. Hannah envisioned all white details for their ceremony and reception and Oregon Golf Club was the perfect backdrop. With a dream team of vendors, their wedding day was flawless and absolutely breathtaking!

Guests were greeted with champagne on arrival and made their way into the Oregon Golf Club rose garden for the ceremony. We could not have gotten luckier with the weather and they were able to have their outdoor ceremony- Hannah and her bridesmaids even walked down the aisle barefoot! After the ceremony, guests made their way into the reception tent for cocktail hour and dinner and were wowed by the details. Zest Floral adorned the mixed long and round tables with lush, white centerpieces and lanterns while floral chandeliers filled with greenery and white hung above for a dreamy, elegant look. The two were announced into the reception to loud cheers from their friends and families. The evening was just perfect and the night was filled with delicious food, memorable toasts, and surprise dances.

The happiness felt throughout the whole celebration was infectious and made for a memorable evening! I am so happy that I got to be a part such an incredible day. Congrats you two, I am just so happy for you!
