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.
When it comes to decorations for your wedding there are some ideas that show up and everyone jumps on board. Remember the mustache craze? Folks everywhere were posing with fake mustaches in their wedding photos. Then after awhile it becomes so over done that no one wants to do it. We found a trend online and were wondering if the same thing would happen to this one. The pinwheel has made a come back and we are seeing it in brides bouquets, on cakes and on quilts. What do you think? Love it or leave it? Is this something you would add to your day for a bit of whimsy or say pass and go the more traditional route? Let us know your thoughts!
When looking for a site for your wedding ceremony you want something that makes you feel comfortable and excited to be there. Leach Botanical Gardens is an outdoor wonderland waiting for you. With lush greenery surrounding your every move, it’s no wonder it’s a such a gem in the community.
Here’s a little background about the site.
“Today the Garden welcomes you. Yearly it provides a beautiful and intimate setting for scores of events. The East Terrace, surrounded by lush garden displays, is a perfect counterpoint to the historic Manor House with its high beamed great room. The Manor House features hardwood floors, knotty pine paneling, natural light from the spacious windows and views of the surrounding trees and foliage. The dining room, including displays of artifacts belonging to John and Lilla and provides a perfect space for food and beverage service. No other place in the Metro area is quite like Portland’s Secret Garden.”
