Portland Weddings

Laura + Jacob

 

I knew planning would be a breeze with Laura & Jacob after our first meeting together. They are the kindest couple with a great eye for design. Laura's vision translated beautifully to their venue, Maysara Winery.

We created a romantic and elegant garden feel. The ceremony was held on Maysara's patio overlooking a stunning view. Laura truly looked angelic in her gorgeous dress.

Guests then enjoyed drinks and yard games before entering the reception.

Whimsical florals in tones of white and blush covered the tables. Tons of votive candles touches of gold added just the perfect compliment.

Following dinner guests danced the night away and roasted s'mores by the fire pit.

My favorite touch was the photo bus, it was unique and kept everyone smiling all night! Congrats Laura & Jacob, it was a pleasure being a part of your day!

We worked with Carrie as our day of coordinator for our wedding in June 2018 at Maysara Winery, and she was absolutely delightful! She was organized, thoughtful, and even thought of important questions for wedding planning that I hadn’t considered. On the day of the wedding we completely trusted her to set up our decor exactly how we wanted - and it was perfect! We can’t thank her enough!

Jen + Stan

 

Jen and Stan were an absolute pleasure to work with.  This couple had a general idea of what they wanted, and let me run with it.  

They are super mellow and really just wanted to throw a fun party with all their friends and family.

Honor Flowers created a simple greenery arch for the ceremony with just enough to serve as a backdrop but not too much to hide the gorgeous view.  

After the emotional vows, guests were ready to party with cocktails, hors d'oeuvres (including Waverley's legendary maple bacon!) and a big dinner.

With the reception being held at Waverley, we let the setting speak for itself and adorned tables with tones of white, green and pops of apricot and gold.

Jen, a member of Notre Dame's national champ soccer team (and one of the school's most celebrated athletes!), was toasted by four of her teammates.  A super memorable part of this wedding is watching three of the gals having a complete laughing attack while the fourth recited a poem. It was so sweet to see how close everyone was after all these years and the whole room was in stiches!

Post laughs and tears listening to all the toasts, Jen, Stan and their guests danced the night away!

I loved getting to you know both--wishing you love and happiness for years to come!

Laura + Sven

 

From the second I met Laura, I knew I wanted to be her wedding coordinator.

She was such fun to chat with and had a stunning vision of dusty rose and mauve with copper and marble accents that matched perfectly with their style.

As we planned, they booked a dream team of vendors that perfectly fit with the style and feel they wanted for their wedding day at Oregon Golf Club.

When the morning of their wedding day came, they both were just so excited to see each other and be married—their smiles were contagious throughout the day.

It was a perfect Oregon summer day as they took photos of their first look and with their bridal party.

Guests were greeted with champagne upon arrival before making their way into the garden for the ceremony.

It was such a sweet ceremony that even included their pup, Bear, as a the Ring Bear.

Guests then enjoyed the early evening outside for cocktail hour complete with signature cocktails, lawn games, and yummy bites.

Doors to the tent were opened when it was time for dinner, revealing a reception adorned with breathtaking floral arrangements and installations by Seventh Stem that filled the space.

After finding their table assignment on the watercolor map created by a close friend, they made their way to beautifully detailed tables.

Each table featured hexagon marble place cards with guest names calligraphed by Letter’s & Dust in copper atop a menu card with a custom wax seal and included copper flatware and blush water goblets- a perfect combination of details.

The night was filled with so many amazing moments for these two and I loved being a part of it!

After enjoying dinner, Laura + Sven stepped out for a moment together with sunset photos.

After fun and heartfelt toasts, guests enjoyed a dessert displayed filled with some of Laura + Sven’s favorite donuts and cupcakes.

Thank you for including me in your special day Laura + Sven- I am so very happy for you both and loved getting to know you both. Huge congrats you two!

Amanda + John

 

Get ready to feast your eyes on this wedding! Kimberly Kay captured the stunning wedding weekend for Amanda and John at Brasada Ranch.

Amanda & John wanted a fun, vibrant and destination weekend for their family friends. With so many of their family and friends traveling from all around the country, we wanted to make sure the weekend was memorable for all.

The two shared their first look beneath the iconic bridge at Brasada Ranch before exchanging gifts.

The ceremony was held on the Range Lawn with the sunshine and stunning backdrop of the Cascade Peaks.

Guests were treated to pre-ceremony bubbles and mini tea sandwiches to kick things off on the right foot!

Cocktail hour followed down on the Trestle Bridge, and then guests were ushered up to dinner and dancing in the barn.

Amanda and John arranged for seating outside which included bright gorgeous flowers from Heirloom Floral and a curated place setting designed by Amanda and her mom - with no detail being left out.

The tables were absolutely stunning.

After dinner guests were invited into the Barn where Curated Events had set up lounge furniture and enjoyed bites & cake from Foxtail Bakery.

Blue Wave Band played hit after hit keeping the dance floor packed!

Needless to say, all the festivities continued late into the night. It was a fun filled ranch wedding weekend! Congratulations again to Amanda & John!

I loved working with Bridal Bliss! I worked with Elizabeth and she made everything so seamless. She was always one step ahead of me and more than happy to help out. She went above and beyond what was required. I would highly recommend!

Laura + Daniel

 

Helping Laura and Daniel bring their wedding vision to life was an absolute pleasure.

The two were so laid back throughout the entire process, and their pick of Nordia House for both the ceremony and reception was the perfect match for their minimalist, easygoing style.

Their ceremony took place outside, shaded by the many trees that surround the grounds of Nordia House.

Columbia River Strings played as guests found their seats in the lawn and sipped on cocktails from the bar inside Broder Soder.

Once the ceremony began, there was not a dry eye in the crowd as Laura and Daniel spoke meaningful vows to one another and said their “I do’s”.
