Looking for Portland wedding planners? Consider Brian and Mary’s advice,
The combination of a lovely setting for our wedding plus the planning provided by Muse, we got our perfect wedding day. Christina is a real pro and methodically covers the necessary details. Her staff member Jennifer was responsive to our every need and a joy to have at our side during the wedding and reception.
If you want those last minute wedding head-aches to melt away you owe it to yourself to engage the services of Muse. Her staff members are responsive and attentive to client needs. During our wedding and reception gathering, Jennifer pampered us with her attentiveness and was always one step ahead facilitating a flawless execution of our service. Gentlemen, if you want your bride to have the wedding of her dreams one essential detail is to provide her professional support. Muse’s ‘pre-wedding’ planning support and especially day of support really made ours a special day, my bride feeling like royalty. Congratulations, Muse, for an exceptional job.
That raving review combined with these words by founder Christina Safford makes Muse Wedding Planning a no brainer for the list of greatest Portland wedding planners.
My favorite part about doing events, particularly weddings, is being able to walk into a room and see that you, and every single one of your guests, are having a wonderful time – without a worry in the world. I love being able to give that gift, and since I love my job, it makes it one of my passions.

There are many wonderful Portland wedding photographers. I try not to play favorites, but really write about each photographer’s individual style. The best wedding photographer for each bride can be different based on several factors.
Factors For Choosing the Best Wedding Photographer:
- Cost – Sometimes this is the biggest and most determining factor.
- Style – Each Portland wedding photographer has their own unique style. Some photographers are great with black and white, some are great with low light settings, some have a more editorial look, some have a totally artistic or eclectic approach. It is important to try to match the style of your photographer with the style of your wedding.
- Other restrictions - There will be some things out of your control, like dates a photographer is available or certain equipment, etc. It is important to consider that the photographer you want may be already booked for your wedding date.
Jessica Hill Photography
If you are looking for a truly unique approach, today I’d like you to consider Jessica Hill Photography. Jessica is known as a photographer who can really capture the essence of a wedding day whether it is in a barn or a five-star hotel. A special moment is never missed and brides are left with a photo book they will be showing off for years. Here is some fanfare from a wedding client,
We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jessica Hill Photography for all special events. Her beautiful pictures tell the story of our daughter’s wedding day by capturing all the special moments before, during and after the ceremony. But more important Jessica captured the FEELING of the day. All the emotions, the love, the laughter and even the tears come rushing back when we look at the pictures. They are the best…our family and friends agree.
And of course I have pictures to prove all those great words. I love the variety shown by Jessica Hill Photography in the pictures I selected.
Don’t miss your chance to meet Jessica in person at this year’s Art of Weddings bridal show next week! On January 3rd The Armory will be bustling with the swankiest Portland wedding photographers and other wedding vendors. Don’t miss out! Getting tickets is easy online. See you there.
I love sharing amazing wedding ideas and vendors with all of you. Today is going to have a LOT of pictures, because I simply could not narrow it down!

Francoise Weeks Florist is a true gem of all the Portland wedding vendors we have recently been covering. Even better you can meet in person at the Art of Weddings bridal show happening next week! As a wedding florist, I would say that Francoise Weeks as the most out of the box thinker in Portland with her European style and flair.

Wedding makeup can be scary to any bride. Here are the common worries I hear from nervous brides regarding how their hair and makeup will be done for their wedding day:
- I am afraid the artist will use too much makeup and it won’t look natural.
- I am nervous that the artist won’t use enough makeup.
- What if the artist uses a color that I hate and I am too nervous to say something?
- My skin is really sensitive and I am afraid of the products the artist will use.
- What if the artist uses too much hairspray and it ends up looking plastered.
- And many many more…
If you want to avoid all of that worrying, I recommend hiring Nicole Wagner of Powder Inc. She has been the makeup artist for hundreds of Oregon brides and I was astonished by all of the rave reviews I found on Wedding Wire. Here is one of my favorites from one Oregon bride, Tiffany:
Nicole Wagner is by far the best make-up artist in Oregon. She helped me to feel my most beautiful during my winter wedding up at Timberline Lodge. Nicole and her team don’t just apply make-up; they take time, look at your features, and enhance what you have naturally. Your face is a canvas and they are true artists. Every interaction I have had with Nicole has been absolutely outstanding and any praise falls short of what she truly accomplishes. Any bride looking for the absolute perfect make-up and hair team should look no further, I promise you will not be disappointed.
That is an incredible endorsement. There was no shortage of words similar to these when it came to Nicole’s skills as a wedding makeup artist. Now, let me show you some photos to prove it.
