Getting Married? Don’t forget the Save The Date!

It’s an exciting time to be engaged – from the proposal, to the big “yes!”, to getting the opportunity to pick a date with the love of your life. Often, the couple may forget that before actually sending out invitations, there are Save The Dates to be sent to the people they may want to share that special day with. Luckily, that’s where we can come in – with Save The Dates that match exactly to our invitations, a whole suite can be created directly with us.

There are so many Save The Date options to choose from, and each have their own special spin to it. From having personal photos of the couple during an engagement photo shoot or a personal photo they may want to share, to just having personalized coasters – we can do it all!

A few of our favorite ones are:


Our Save The Date coaster is an adorable alternative. This one featured is our ‘Sittin In A Tree‘ coaster.


Our Cherry Bloom Save The Date is perfect for weddings taking place in the Spring, or for those couples that want to incorporate a beautiful floral element.


For those that want a sophisticated and modern touch to their Save The Dates, this gorgeous Luxe Elegance Save The Date is perfect for it.

We’re more than happy to customize any Save The Date, and of course, are always open to creating the one of your dreams! If you would like to see more Save The Date options, feel free to click here.

Our Favorite Portland Wedding Locations


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.

As always, we’re more than happy to customize your invitations to your colors, and most importantly, your location.

Portland, Oregon Urban Loft Style Wedding

When we made the move to Portland, Oregon, we were SO excited that would mean more face-to-face time with our brides. I knew Brianna’s wedding was going to be amazing when she requested letterpress on ivory with coral ink. Hello dream invites! Her fantastic sense of style paired with her incredible set of vendors (and the nicest family EVER) came together beautifully. Check out these stunning images by May Gunsul Photography!
