Our Most Popular Wedding Product of 2014…

A wedding truly isn’t a wedding without celebrating it with people that you love – and that love you back. Some of the best memories that a wedding can have aside from the love that the couple share, is the guests that get to share in that special moment with them.

Depending on where the wedding is held – whether it’s a local wedding, or a destination trip – brides and grooms often forget the Welcome bag. When guests are coming from out of town or you’re celebrating it far from home, the perfect way to kick off the wedding is with one of our signature out-of-town-guest bag sets. Available in both paper and canvas, the bag features some amazing details your guests will surely enjoy and most of all, will remember for a lifetime. With two great options to choose from, and six different themes, you’ll be able to show your guests your appreciation for their presence.

Our welcome bag in canvas is a beautiful way to spoil your wedding guests. Completely customizable to go with your wedding, the contents and high quality canvas bags will be perfect with some of your own favorite local items for your guests.

We have six styles to choose from, each fully customizable should you have any ideas of your own. Don’t be a stranger and shoot Janice an e-mail with anything you can think of, or visit our website to place your order for these gorgeous bags!

Portland weather has finally graced us with some sunshine, and we couldn’t help but take notice of how much we love the different kinds of flowers that line our neighborhood streets, the cherry blossoms that have finally come out in bloom, and the Tulip festival that has kicked off in full gear. If you’re looking for invitations or menus that highlight all things flowers, we have different options for you!

Sullivan’s Gulch – Our Newest Suite Addition

There’s nothing like planning a destination wedding. Having the opportunity to share that special day with friends and family in a beautiful location is always a fun and exciting time. With wedding season fast approaching, we’ve been getting busy with invitations, RSVP cards, programs, and so much more. We’re huge fans of working with brides – or even grooms! – who want something customized to suit their special day. Whether it be having a quote that has a special meaning to the couple, highlighting the location, or even enclosing some fun things that the guest may experience when they come to the wedding, we’re more than happy to help achieve that goal.

One of our newest suites is uniquely named ‘Sullivan’s Gulch’. Customized for our client who wanted something fun but still formal, the blue and white solidified the dressy occasion while the map and small compass maintained playful details. We especially loved the Winnie The Pooh quote! Shown below is their invite, reply card, and folding information card.

Our Favorite Portland Wedding Locations

portland_oregon_wedding_invitations_photographer_mt_hood_2

We love being based in Portland, Oregon. Depending on where we want to go, we’re only a car ride away from it – from snowboarding or skiing up at Mount Hood in the Winter, to doing some crabbing and fishing on the Oregon Coast, to going wine tasting in the Willamette Valley. Lucky for brides-to-be in Portland, they have a wide selection as to what venue to choose and where to have it – and that goes with invitations and every little detail.

As Portlanders, there are so many amazing Portland-only landmarks worth taking pictures at or even near when it comes to having some wedding photos done o n the big day. Here are our top ten favorites located in and around the Portland area, with all photos by our friend, Bryan Aulick, in no particular order:

1. Powell’s Books: 1005 W Burnside St.

We love this location because of its colorful array of books, along with different rooms of such amazing colors.

2. Voodoo Donuts: 22 SW 3rd Avenue (Downtown) and 1501 NE Davis St (NE). With not just one but TWO locations to choose from, you can get your wedding… and donuts, too!

3. The International Rose Test Garden: 400 SW Kingston Ave. The garden looks amazing during the summer months, and especially in the middle of the Summer/beginning of Fall, when all the roses are in full bloom.

4. Stumptown Coffee: 128 SW 3rd Ave, 1026 SW Stark St, 100 SE Salmon St, 4525 SE Division Street, 3356 SE Belmont Street

With five locations to choose from, it’s no wonder that Portland is known for our Stumptown coffee!

5. ‘Made In Oregon’ sign: Burnside bridge heading into Old Town. This historic sign has changed several times, but now has become an icon in Portland.

6. Cathedral Park: Located in St.John’s, N Edison Street and Pittsburg Avenue

Cathedral Park is beautifully captured with not only an amazing view of the water and hills, but of St.John’s bridge.

7. Pittock Mansion: 3229 NW Pittock Dr. The views of Portland from this incredible mansion is breathtaking. No shot will be wasted when taking photos at this beautiful location.

8. Forest Park: 4099 NW Thurman Street

Who would’ve known that just a few miles away from the hustle and bustle of Downtown Portland, you can get in touch with nature? This beautiful park boasts some great hiking paths and views.

9. Portland Japanese Garden in Washington Park. With an array of flowers, and according to their website, ‘the most authentic Japanese garden outside of Japan’, this garden will have you wanting to take some home for yourself!

10. Union Pine: 525 SE Pine Street

A versatile and beautiful space, Union Pine will definitely turn your wedding into a party all your guests will be talking about – not to mention their aesthetic is pleasing to the eyes.
