Denise & Cody love everything about the outdoors, so when it came to selecting their wedding venue, it only made sense to get married at the Resort at the Mountain. Choosing the Lakeside Lawn for their ceremony and reception in mid-June and in Oregon was bound to have some potential weather challenges and boy did the weather gods play some tricks on us that day! With a morning filled with hail, thunder and lightening storms, left everyone scrambling for backup options- should we do everything under the tent, should we move inside the ballroom, or should we just make a game time decision.  Well, luckily for us, a game time decision was the right choice!! By the time the couple had done their first look, the clouds parted and it was as if Heaven's gates had opened up for us! 

The ceremony was beautifully written by a dear friend of both Denise & Cody, which also left no dry eye at their seats.  Guests were then able to enjoy cocktail hour out on the lawn and inside the tent while having appetizers and drinks. | Mt.

The chandeliers inside the tent were dripping with greenery and the tables had lush navy linens with gold beaded chargers topped with a pine cone at each setting.   During dinner the rain started back up again, but once it stopped, left an amazing double rainbow to which we whisked the couple outside for some amazing photos! The end of the rainbow literally ended where the couple had said their vows, now if that isn't luck, I don't know what is! 

Our close friends had used Katy from Bridal Bliss, and honestly I had never thought of using a wedding planner previously. But seeing how things flowed so well for their wedding I decided to keep in the back of my mind were the day to come where Cody and I tied the knot. Well, a few months after their wedding Cody popped the question and we were on our way to wedded bliss. After looking at a few vendors and quickly becoming unsure of myself being able to think of all the little details that come with a wedding I gave Nora at Bridal Bliss a call. Nora was such a pleasure to speak with she reassured me that we had time to plan all the details and things we wanted to do. To our delight we were assigned Katy just as our friends had been. Katy is hands down the master of handling crazy situations, calming down this bride about rain, and putting together a beautiful wedding. Katy thought about every little detail, I honestly didn’t think I had given her much direction but she picked up on EXACTLY what we were looking for, from working with the florist on the perfect bouquet, to setting us up with vendors that just jived with our group and lastly on the day of the wedding she parted the clouds, stopped the rain and ordered up a double rainbow. I have recommended Bridal Bliss to our freshly engaged friends and will continue to for the years to come. The whole team was a absolute pleasure to work with.
