Erin + Jordan

 

The ceremony took place at The Grotto in North Portland. Erin looked nothing short of stunning in her beautiful, white gown form Anna’s Bridal.

She spent the morning with Blossom and Beauty, who created the perfect wedding look for her and her bridesmaids.

They had their first look in the park blocks in downtown Portland before heading to The Grotto for their ceremony.

The couple drew quite a crowd during their ceremony, with a few spectators even asking if the couple was famous (due to the paparazzi of course). Their personal paparazzi was Moving Pictures as well as Altura Studios.

After a traditional Catholic Ceremony, guests boarded charter buses to be taken to the Reception at the Portland Art Museum.

West Coast Drape had the reception spaced draped off, and once they were pulled back, it was time to be seated for dinner. The ballroom was dripping with custom floral chandeliers from Blum Floral design, that tables were perfectly in line with the design concept thanks to Party Place.

They had delicious bites and sipped on custom his & hers cocktails from ChefStable Catering. ChefStable hit a homerun with dinner, followed by the most amazing cake from Dreamcakes, which had a special hidden baseball nod.

Then it was time for Dancehall Days to start the party, and boy did they!! I have honestly never seen the ENTIRE room of a wedding get up to dance like these guys did!

Erin and Jordan, It was so great to see your vision come to life with this wedding. I enjoyed getting to know you both, and i’m always happy to meet you at breakside for a beer!

Natasha + Huston

 

I cannot even begin to express to you how much I LOVED working with Natasha and Huston.  This couple was as sweet and low-maintenance as they get.  Natasha gave me a few inspirational photos and basic guidelines and then let me take it from there.  This couple barely knew what to expect at their wedding…what a relief that they loved it!!

MICHAEL ALLEN HARRISONAARON MEYER  and JULIANNE JOHNSOn performed the ceremony music…AMAZING.  If you’ve ever seen the benches at The Grotto, you know that they are not overly attractive.  So…we brought in custom damask pads to match the wedding’s design scheme.

The bride wanted “purples” and “orchids.”  I think she got what she asked for!!

Huston surprised Natasha by learning “I Wont Give Up” by Jason Mraz and performed it at the reception.  For the first dance, the dance floor gobo matched invitations and menus, and the hanging chandeliers were custom made.  Also, As a nod to Natasha’s Lebanese heritage, we brought in belly dancers to perform!
