Portland Bride + Groom Daytime Glam Editorial

If there is something that gets the creative juices flowing, it's being part of an inspiration shoot! Portland Bride Magazine asked us to take part in a spread, and we chose to bring a farm to table brunch concept to life.  

The tangerine orange, lemon yellow and grapefruit peach color palette combined with neutrals made for a fresh and vibrant table. We incorporated a guest welcome box including amongst other items, fresh donuts, Stiegl Radlers, St. Germain and Prosecco. Definitely a few of our favorite things!  We also tried out a new napkin fold, brought in boozy popsicles, incorporated beautifully presented food platters and a cake that was to-do-for.  We are in love with the end result! Big thanks to Portland Bride + Groom and the dream team of wedding professionals that helped pull this off!

Cake Cover Contest


We recently had the opportunity to style dessert editorials in two magazines, Portland Bride + Groom and Seattle Met Bride + Groom.  Our images made both covers--both out at the same time! One was dark, organic and moody while the other was crisp and sleek with gold accents.  Which do you like best??

Fondant to Fromage


Here at BRIDAL BLISS, we like to mix things up and try new things so no two weddings are the same.  One fun idea that we had the opportunity to pair up with SIMPATICA CATERING and try in a recent issue of PORTLAND BRIDE & GROOM MAGAZINE was a new take on the traditional wedding cake.  For those that prefer cheese after dinner rather than sweets, this one is for you.  The bride and groom can even ceremoniously cut the “cake!”

I just realized that I never shared photos from our fab tabletop shoot that we styled for PORTLAND BRIDE AND GROOM MAGAZINE that was published in the Summer/Fall issue! It turned out so great that I just have to post about it…better late than never!!

We were inspired by berry tones but wanted to add in modern elements like the chevron printing & backdrop, ghost chairs, mirrored pieces and lamp accent. I absolutely love how everything photographed and came together…what do you think??
