We can finally let the cat out of the bag! We are so happy to be featured in Oregon Bride Magazine's Best of 2017 Issue! This feature means a lot as it's been so important to me and our brand that we are recognized as a PNW Wedding and Event Planner. 

Hope you enjoy the images from our shoot and be sure to check out the magazine, out now on shelves! Thank you to the awesome team of Creatives (listed below).


PORTLAND INSPIRED

Ira and Lucy Wedding Planner, Kendra Elise Photography

We were drawn to Portland’s beautiful architecture as it truly speaks for itself. This styled shoot at Adored Vintage focused on bringing out the truly imaginative, creative and natural talent that we love about the Portland scene. Keeping to neutral tones to accent Portland’s unique structure. The Oatmeal tone velvet with natural Tuscany linen napkins accented the ceramic pottery details and romantic gold elements. 

Textures were the focus for this tablescape with simple two tone vases, soft romantic hues and lush local floral elements. A tablescape is an experience for your guests. Run your fingertips over the soft velvet linen, the rough and smooth ceramics, the glassware, brass candlesticks and acrylic chairs. A tactile dream!

Acrylic chairs are a beautiful modern take on special event seating. Modern or classic and even with old world design style, they work! Showcase that beautiful linen and table design with a chair that only enhances the experience.

The brides dress, a stunning design from Alexandra Grecco,  reflects simple elegance with contemporary lines and movement. The silhouette while simple in design; mimics the dramatic architecture surrounding St. John’s bridge with a mirrored deep V neckline and stunning mid-thigh slit. Complementing the modern design is a delicate golden maple leaf crown from Melinda Rose Designs.

The cake was kept simple to compliment the signature cocktail and focus on texture mimicking the ceramic details and adorned with natural floral elements

We adore simple elegant design. Timeless. Classic. Unforgettable.

"SLOW AND STEADY"
SIGNATURE DRINK FROM ARCHIVE BAR

As a nod to Portland’s unique history and innovation we created a customized botanical cocktail. “Slow and Steady” is a fortified wine based cocktail that is infused with Rosemary, Dry Vermouth, Apple Brandy, Lavender, Lemon and Sea Salt. The result hits you in waves – rosemary in the nose, herbaceous up front, followed by sweet apple, with a lightly salted effervescent finish.

Kylie + Punky's Countryside Wedding

STILL WATER HOLLOW | SEPTEMBER 19, 2014

Digging into the archives, it'd be a shame to not share some of our very first weddings and special couples that we had the joy of working with! These Brides were absolutely amazing and were so open to our design ideas and introducing the concept of "vintage rentals" to the Idaho wedding industry! Kylie was a dream to work with! One of our out-of-state brides, she and I emailed more times then I can count about design ideas, sharing concepts and bringing her dream wedding to life! Here's to Kylie and Punky who are now enjoying married life with a beautiful baby boy!

Winter Wedding at Barber Park

WINTER WEDDING AT BARBER PARK EVENT CENTER
BOISE, ID | LAKEN FULTON PHOTOGRAPHY

There is something so romantic about a winter wedding! Frost on the ground, cozy shawls, hot cocoa bars, candlelight and a cake to dream about! I so enjoyed designing this wedding! In hopes of giving this bride her dreamy winter feel, I painted wood cuts for design details and created a fabulous interactive hot cocoa bar. A "cozy up" lounge welcomed guests to sit back and enjoy the celebration and as the sun set and warm candlelight filled the room.

Heidi went WAY above and beyond to make our day special. Without her I would have been a disaster in the months leading up to our reception. She always had amazing ideas and helped us put together a team of people to make our day run so smoothly!

THE CAKE

This cake was the Bride's one thing she was most excited for! I'm so happy with how perfect it turned out and so thankful I made the call to move the table out of a window spot to this fabulous wood backdrop! It helped the entire cake focus stand out as a gorgeous focal point!

Let's talk chairs!

Acrylic Ghost Chairs

Who's excited for these gorgeous acrylic chairs!?! We are! You'll be spotting these beauties in some of our 2017 weddings! They are more versatile then you think and will be mixed with modern and rustic elegant styles. We hope you'll love these as much as we do! And guess what!? They are now available in the Treasure Valley! Event Rent made it happen! Tell them we sent ya!

Chairs make a MEGA impact on your overall design! Our two favorites are the beautiful cross back option or these acrylic ghost chairs! 2017 is the year of the ghost chair. One of the reasons we can't get enough of these acrylic ghost chairs is because they are a beautiful and modern take on special event seating. Modern or classic, even with old world design style, they work in such a variety of styles. These unique chairs are also the perfect way to showcase that beautiful linen and table design you’ve been planning by enhancing the incredible details around them. The acrylic fades seamlessly into the design and lets all the elements of your design blend together to create the perfect balance.  Not only do these beauties mix well in all types of wedding styles they mix well with other chairs as well. Still not convinced? Check out some of our favorite ways ghost chairs have been used so far.
