Christina + Drake


Where do I begin - this couple and this day were absolute perfection! From the very beginning, I knew I was lucky to work with Christina & Drake. Their sense of style, class and kindness is not often matched. Their vision came to life as the day began and late October weather cooperated. The wedding party toured around Portland in the Portland trolley before reaching the ceremony and reception location. Castaway lent the perfect urban backdrop while we packed the space with modern, yet soft and simple details.

 The ceremony was romantically draped and candle lit, while the couple stood underneath a lush installation of eucalyptus and olive leaves by Blum. Guests mingled with signature cocktails outside on the patio before being invited into the reception. Italian chocolate escort cards led family and friends to their seats where gold lanterns, crisp white blooms and sage colored greenery greeted them. Acrylic and gold laser cut details adorned the space, as well as hanging greenery hoops and Edison bulbs lining the head table.

 Heartwarming toasts and dances were held under perfectly executed lighting by Hollywood Lights. As guests danced the night away, Fifty Licks and Bunk sandwiches parked their trucks outside to curb late night cravings. This was truly a night to remember as every chic detail fell right into place and created a masterpiece! CONGRATS Christina & Drake, it was an absolute pleasure to be a part of your day!

I had an incredible experience working with Bridal Bliss to plan my October 2017 wedding. I was the maid of honor in my friends’ wedding back in June 2016, and she was working with a Bridal Bliss planner, and I knew from THAT day that I had to look no further one day when I got married. I worked with Carrie, who was incredibly organized, responsive, and professional. She went above and beyond the expectations I had for a day-of planner and made the wedding planning process not just smooth, but fun. My entire bridal party raved about her. She was so relaxed which set the tone for our big day. She kept me out of the little things and allowed me to truly enjoy the week leading up to the wedding stress-free. I trusted her with everything and she had my back in conversations that can be complicated with vendors. I would HIGHLY recommend Bridal Bliss and any of their planners, you will have zero regrets.
