If there is one thing brides love it is options when it comes to tough choices like food, alcohol, and of course, photography. Portland brides be ready, Laura Sonneburg Photography has all sorts of options! Full of personality and style, Laura Sonnenburg will keep your wedding day alive with her blend of modern photojournalism and fine art composition. Here is what she has to say about photographing weddings,
When it comes to weddings I am often more than the photographer. I help the bride and groom plan their wedding day schedule at our walk-thru…oversee corset lacing and boutonniere -pinning…I strategically handle complex family politics during group photos…fetch the bride’s bouquet when the bridesmaids forget to bring it outside with them…remind the bride to breath! You get the picture…
Not only does she sound like a wedding day lifesaver, after exploring more of Laura’s site I am really impressed by the services she offers. She has wedding photography options from $2300 to $5500 with tons of options in between. Every Portland bride should find something to fit them with all of these choices.

Prices will be much higher at the door, so don’t wait to get tickets! This years’ bridal show is sure to be the best one yet.
Do you want to stay away from serving cheap whiskey/cokes at your wedding reception? Wedding Reception alcohol is a touchy subject for almost every bride and groom. It can be expensive and not putting money into it may mean you are serving cheap beer and bad cocktails. To help solve alcohol dilemmas you could bring in a third party. Consider bringing in an outside bartender. There is a such thing as liquid catering, and Portland has a wedding vendor that masters it; My Bartender.
My Bartender helps the party happen…anywhere. They can set up mobile bar stations to serve whatever wedding reception libations are in order. Going with My Bartender doesn’t mean you have to give up the idea of a cash bar either. My Bartender offers cash bar set ups, beer and wine bars, and full service bars. My Bartender also offer something unique in that they will help you design your own specialty cocktails just for your reception! That had me really excited. Sounds like the best of both worlds. You can control how much you spend by offering only a couple of signature cocktails that guests will remember.
Here is what one mobile bar set up looked like:
Now, here is what is really important…the drinks!
Don’t they look yummy? Need to see for yourself? Don’t blame you. Check out My Bartender and many more local wedding vendors at this years Art of Weddings Bridal Show on January 3rd, 2013.
