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!

Seattle Bride Escort Card Feature

 

Getting creative and designing weddings that are out-of-the-box is what we do best at Bridal Bliss.  So, when Seattle Bride Magazine approached us looking for unique ways to guide guests to their seat, with a natural vibe, we were excited to brainstorm! Molly + Elizabeth came up with the fabulous idea of incorporating glass fishing floats for the city bordering the sea. They were etched in metallic calligraphy by our ever talented friends at Robinson Paperie.  They were delicate, beautiful, and so unique.  Kate Calamusa, editor of the magazine, even spoke about them on K5 TV segment about wedding trends.  Such a fun opportunity!

 

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??

Seattle Met Bride + Groom Dessert Spread

 

If there is one thing we love, its getting creative and styling shoots for fabulous magazines! Molly + Elizabeth had the opportunity to work with Seattle Met Bride + Groom on a super glam and sleek dessert spread that spanned six pages in the magazine as well as the cover!  

 

Seattle Bride Send Off Feature

Seattle Bride Magazine recently asked us to be a part of their feature on send-off options in the current issue--what an honor! Elizabeth + Molly pulled together the most darling sparkly sequin idea.  Take a peek in the current issue! 

Barn Inspiration Shoot

 

It's always exciting when a new venue pops up and The Barn PNW did not disappoint! Located in Dayton, nestled amongst the cherry trees lies an adorable red barn with gorgeous cedar doors which also serves as a family run and owned cherry farm. So, when Meghan and I toured the space with Kellye in the spring, we were inspired to utilize the natural elements of the venue as well as incorporating Pantone's colors of 2016 (rose quartz + serenity), and marble (a hot trend right now), all while keeping it elegant and enchanting.  

We utilized the venue's trellis, which Bella Bloom adorned with gorgeous greenery, lilacs and lush cherry blossoms, to serve as our ceremony structure.  For our tablescape inside the barn, we incorporated gorgeous soft grays and white paisley print linens from La Tavola. The table included beautiful pieces from Classic Vintage Rentals-- everything from gold rimmed Limoge dinnerware, gold & silver flatware and crystal glassware.  We also featured a signature cocktail inside blush coupe glasses, garnished with Meyer lemon and a cherry blossom.  Each setting was adorned by marble coasters with gold rims which served as place settings and marble was also incorporated into the vases and votives. Florals were kept low and lush throughout the table and included soft pink roses, jasmine and even some touches of moss and eucalyptus. To make a statement, we hung cherry blossoms above the table with tea lights, bringing the look all together (a personal fav!).  

Our beautiful grey and white marble cake, designed by Dream Cakes, sat upon a gold cake stand which we then surrounded by more cherry blossoms and eucalyptus. Devil's Food Catering created their signature hors d'oeuvres which were served on marble platters.  

A special thank you to all of the vendors involved (including our cute couple and past clients, Natalie + Jordan!) and Wedding Chicks for featuring on their blog! These shoots wouldn't come together without you all and your creativeness! Thank you!!
