I have always loved any chance to go to The Nines hotel in downtown Portland. Whether it is to get drinks with friends, check out the view from the rooftop lounge, or to attend a meeting or event, The Nines hotel is a modern mecca in the way of hotels. It is swanky and fun, so naturally a perfect fit for the Art of Weddings bridal show happening tomorrow at The Armory in the Pearl District.
There are plenty of reasons to choose The Nines for your wedding so I made a curated list of my favorites to share directly with you. Check these perks out!
Reasons to Host Your Wedding At The Nines
- The bride and groom get a complimentary room
- Your guests receive a discounted rate
- They offer hand rolled sushi for your reception
- They have spaces for an intimate wedding or a ballroom that can host up to 540 wedding guests

I always feel like the holiday season sneaks up on me and I’m left running around trying to get the perfect gift or find decor for the house and cook a wonderful meal. Even though it can feel like a deadline creeping up on you I really enjoy this time of the year. It’s a chance to slow down and enjoy the little things; friends, family and good food!
During this time we are also thrilled to hear about all the newly engaged couples. Besides planning for our holiday gatherings we are also busy, busy organizing a swankier kind of bridal show for you. The 2013 Art of Weddings is going to be a great show.

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.
Muse Wedding Planning
If you want to meet Muse Wedding Planning and several other Portland wedding planners, make sure to attend the Art of Weddings bridal show happening on January 3rd, 2013.

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.
