Today, more on our series of Portland bridal show highlights, Citrine and Blue Photography. Citrine and Blue = Amy and Bob. Amy and Bob seem pretty cool. I am always saying that each Portland wedding vendor has their own unique style. For Citrine and Blue Photography I would say they rock at making people feel at ease while getting photos take on their wedding day or engagement session. They bring about a sense of fun and relaxation. It is clear from how they write about themselves,
Bob and I have the World’s Coolest Jobs. We hang out with tons of happy people, make great photos and get to share a very important day with an awesome couple in love. Sometimes, there is cake. But more importantly, there are photos that capture a day full of joy and magic. And whether you have a big traditional church wedding with 300 guests or a Voodoo Doughnuts wedding with your closest friends and family, it’s your special day. And the bride and groom should feel like rock stars.
We want you to trust us and feel comfortable with us and, most importantly, with having your picture taken on your wedding day. And we feel the best way to do that is to sit down over coffee and talk about your wedding, our photography style and just get to know each other a bit. We want to balance professionalism with laughter and fun at every wedding we photograph. And we guarantee your mom will think Bob is cool, and everyone on Facebook will think your photos are awesome.
That is a great bio and really encapsulates the spirit of Citrine and Blue Photography. The photos I found online from previous weddings were all great fun!

This morning I have been getting to know Geranium Lake Flowers and learning a lot about wedding flowers and the business of it. As I was researching, I have just become more and more excited to have Geranium Lake Flowers on our list of Portland wedding vendors for this year’s Art of Weddings bridal show on January 3rd. One of the best things about reading about and knowing so many wedding vendors is appreciating them each for their own unique style. Geranium Lake Flowers takes care of the floral arrangements for over 100 weddings each May-October, so I would say they have the style factor down. It is always interesting to hear how people ended up doing what they love and are good at and the owner of Geranium lake Flowers, Kim Foren is no exception. Here is her story as it reads from the Geranium lake Flowers website,
Owner Kim Foren is trained as a fine art painter and showed her whimsical oil paintings for sixteen years at Quartersaw Gallery in Portland. Desiring a change in her corporate life, she started selling flowers in 1993 out of her VW van in front of Grand Central Bakery on SE 22nd and Hawthorne in Portland. She named her business Geranium Lake Flowers inspired by her favorite Windsor and Newton oil paint color “Geranium Lake”, a saturated fuchsia pink. The name serves as a reminder to keep her business creative. Moving to the US Bancorp Tower in 1995, she has become one of the premier floral and event companies in the Portland area. She has personally appeared on NBC’s TODAY Show and her company has attracted such prestigious customers as Portland Monthly magazine, Nike, The Nines Hotel, Leftbank Annex, and many more.

Wedding lighting is something we haven’t talked about in quite a while. Well, no more putting it off. It is important and can really take your wedding and reception to a whole new level of elegance. Lighting is the easiest and best way (in my opinion) to create your desired ambiance. Brides tend to get wrapped up in details like centerpieces, flowers and other decor and forget the powerful effect that wedding lighting can have on a space. For example, love your wedding venue, but hate the carpet? Lighting can deter the eye away from elements you don’t like and onto elements you do, like architectural columns or drapery.
Want to know more? Contact Green Light Creative, located right here in Portland. They are experts when it comes to lighting events. I advise all brides to consider lighting as part of your budget. One of the best things about it is you can choose how dramatic your lighting becomes. Green Light Creative offers very economical packages for simple lighting as well as very dramatic statements like personalized gobo designs for the walls and ceiling at your reception. Wondering what a gobo is? Here is how Green Light Creative discusses them on their website,
A “gobo” is a metal or glass template that we slide into the lenses of a traditional theatrical spot light. The template is stamped or printed with an image. We “project” these images onto walls, floors, ceilings, canopy surfaces, curtains and backdrops, stages….your imagination is the only limitation!
