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! I love finding truly unique vendors doing things just a bit different from the run of the mill wedding vendor. 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.
If you are as stunned by these photos as I am, here is what you can expect from Francoise Weeks Florist when exploring whether they might be the right wedding florist for you.
- Meet with you

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.

I have been privy to too many weddings that could have used a good wedding planner. If you want to save your brain space for conversations with guests and not wondering why drinks have not been served yet, please hire a wedding planner. Wedding planners save you time and usually money as well. They often know how to go directly to the source of what you are looking for and have close connections with florists, photographers, bakeries, and more.
If you aren’t sure about trusting a wedding planner, Events by Lisa Marie offers free consultations to any bride looking into just what wedding planners do. On top pf that, Events by Lisa Marie offers some great tools for brides in the planning center online.
Things found in the planning center:
- Basic Planning Guide
- Budget Planner
- Who Pays For What Guide
- Advice on Why To Hire a Wedding Planner
I love when wedding vendors offer up free and useful information. For me, it is all the more reason to sit down and have a consultation with Events by Lisa Marie. In business since 2007 they have years of experience and expertise planning classy and stylish weddings and events.
