Alexis + Tim


There is something so sweet about high school sweethearts tying the knot, especially when it’s a former teacher who does the tying! Alexis and Tim met in high school English class, and the rest is history.

They envisioned an elegant winter wedding: glamorous, cozy and classy. Sentinel Hotel provided the perfect backdrop with gold and ivory hues for Alexis and Tim’s midnight blue and pale rose palette. Zest designed lush, romantic bouquets with silvery greenery for texture, and stunning tall floral centerpieces with wintery branches added drama to the sophisticated ballroom look. Stylish chalk calligraphy signage and stationary by The Pearl Creative ensured no element was overlooked, and I’m thrilled that the talented Sweetlife Photography was there to capture the day in such gorgeous detail.

It was a treat working with Tracy at Classic Vintage Rentals to design a hot chocolate bar with decadent Hot Chocolate Magic Mix and melt in your mouth marshmallows from Portland’s very own QUIN Candy – a perfect late night snack for a cozy wintery wedding!

Working with Alexis and Tim was an absolute joy. It was a delight to help them plan their special day, and the start of their “happily ever after”. Congratulations to Alexis and Tim!
