The Art of Wedding’s 10th Anniversary Bridal Showcase

The Art of Wedding's 10th Anniversary Bridal Showcase

We are so excited for the tenth annual Art of Weddings Bridal Show! We started with a vision on a napkin while chatting with a friend at a coffee shop and it has grown ever since. The goal was and has always been to keep the event relaxed, fun and non-pressured. We think you should be able to meet and talk to vendors without feeling like you have to book them on site. Of course you can if you fall in love but the goal is for your and your fiance to celebrate your engagement in a stylish atmosphere.

If you haven’t already, now is the time to reserve your tickets online. Get a discounted price of only $8 each when you enter the code: PCS online and you will also be automatically entered for the opportunity to win a whole wedding from the Lucky in Love contest (valued at over $20,000). Otherwise get them at the door for $15 each.

We always love having it at the modern and beautiful Gerding Theater at the Armory in downtown Portland. Parking is on street and in nearby lots. Coat check on hand in case it’s a rainy evening.

View stunning photography, sample culinary delights, snack on a sweet cupcake and hop in a photo booth for some silly memories. Stay around for a featured fashion show by local fashion designer Michelle DeCourcy and walk away with ideas to plan your perfect wedding day! See you this Wednesday evening from 6-9pm!

Featured Vendor: The Gerding Theater at the Armory

gerding theater at the armoryLocated in the heart of Portland’s vibrant Pearl District on the streetcar line, The Gerding Theater at the Armory offers a beautiful setting for any wedding.  The LEED Platinum-rated building’s two-tiered lobby spaces are a sophisticated combination of historic charm, urban contemporary and classic industrial design.  Blending rustic brick and basalt walls in a soaring open air space, with large windows and sky lights to highlight the Douglas Fir wood Trusses, this setting is a one-of-a-kind backdrop for an unconventional, yet uniquely elegant wedding.

With a capacity of up to 200 people for a seated ceremony and dinner, say your “I Do’s” against the backdrop of the “Fire Wall” of flickering lights that cascade down the back wall of the two lobby spaces. Then dance the night away under the dramatic Starfield Chandelier of 184 tiny bulbs suspended in mid-air.  Our inclusive wedding package provides you with the amenities you’ll need for the big day. We only celebrate one wedding a day, offering 12-hour bookings with 5 ½ hours of pre-event preparation for vendors, and 6 ½ hours for your event, ending at midnight.  Included in your wedding amenities are full ceremony and reception set-up and breakdown, tables and folding chairs, lounge furniture, multiple dressing rooms and a lounge for the wedding party, and two subscriptions to PCS’ current season for the couple valued at $900!

We also include complimentary on-site ceremony assistance and reception coordination, diagram coordination, and our experienced staff of event planners will help you coordinate your timeline between your vendors and the Gerding Theater at the Armory.

With a list of eight of the most exclusive catering vendors in Portland, you can be sure to find the perfect match for you and your style for your big day!  Come visit this beautiful, modern site Wednesday, March 26th from 6-9pm for The Art of Weddings Bridal Showcase. Get your tickets online here and enter the code: PCS to get a discount!

Featured on Intimate Weddings Blog!

We love supporting other blogs and wedding sites. When it comes down to it we all pull from each other when it comes to wedding advice, tips, and decorations. There are only so many original ideas out there but what makes all these wonderful blogs thrive is we all have our own way of seeing things. We are just honored that you like the way we see things and take the time to visit our wedding blog. Our love for weddings is the special unity of two people coming together. It’s such an amazing thing for two individuals to find each other in this crazy world and know that this is the person I want to spend and enjoy life with.

A great blog named Intimate Weddings focuses on just that. Small events with less than fifty guests at them. Now you may be thinking, how is that even possible?! It is but it takes some careful planning and sticking to plans. If you want a small backyard wedding with only thirty guests then make it happen! Don’t worry about who will be hurt if they don’t attend. This is your day and if that’s what you both want then do it.

The one thing we do recommend is hiring a seasoned wedding professional. Looking back on your images brings back the day like it just happened, I truly enjoy that.

Here’s the link to view our wedding on the Intimate Wedding Blog. Also, you’ll find a great list of local Oregon wedding vendors that I used for the event. I would work with any of them again in a heartbeat and the day wouldn’t have been what it was without all their hard work. Enjoy and thanks for following us.
