Thank you all for following The Art of Weddings blog. We appreciate you for taking a moment out of your day and spending it with us!
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. We love hosting it at The Gerding Theater at The Armory in the Pearl District. The venue is stunning and a great location for your ceremony and or reception. This is the first year that David’s Bridal will be joining us. Get ready for a fashion show featuring all their gowns!
We will also have a raffle at the end of the evening where you could win any of these amazing prizes!
5 dozen hors d’oeuveres from Chez Joly Catering.
$100 in cupcake gift certificates from Cupcake Jones.
A bridesmaid bouquet from Old Town Florist valued at $75.
Free room rental of Madison Suite for a bridal shower – valued at $200.
Does your list of wedding vendors seem daunting and long? ever wish you could combine a few? You can. At least photographer and cinematographer. Atelier Pictures does both and both really well. They have been sent around the world with experience in Portland, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, New York, Austin, Cabo San Lucas, Maui, Kauai, Nepal, Thailand, and the Caribbean. We are happy to have them at the Art of Weddings bridal show next month and include them on our lists of best Portland wedding vendors. Atelier Pictures is owned and operated by Jonathan Marrs and Josh Ferdaszewksi.
Interesting Bio Stuff about Jonathan Marrs by Jonathon
I received by B.A. in art from Azusa Pacific University and my M.F.A. from Vermont College of Fine Arts. I mention these accomplishments merely because they show my intense drive to continually improve my creative practice.
I do not hesitate to let my music jump from Sigur Ros to Gnarls Barkley to Norah Jones to Mozart to Nick Cave to Avenged Sevenfold to Michael Jackson to Nickel Creek to Bad Religion to Arcade Fire.
I am white and nerdy, but I can do a standing backflip.
I am a photographer, but I don’t use Apple products.
Interesting Bio Stuff about Josh Ferdaszewksi by Josh
I have always loved the dichotomy between the technical and the creative in photography. I am a gear-head and the type of person who reads owner’s manuals (for fun)! I am also an artist who strives to create beauty in the world. Photography brings these disparate parts of me together. But enough philosophy.
I have been taking photos seriously since I was at Azusa Pacific University back in the early 2000’s. I started shooting weddings professionally in 2009 after moving to Portland, Oregon with my wife Rachel. I love the challenge of a wedding day, and the craft of editing (photos and videos) and look forward to working with more wonderful clients!
