Urban Wedding

Darcy + Joey


Darcy and Joey are an UNREAL couple with the best love story of all time. Portland is simply a stop along their journey, as they both work for Nike at the moment, and I feel so lucky I got to meet them along the way!

Originally, Darcy & Joey were to say their "I-do's" on the rooftop of Ecotrust, but 93 degree weather is not ideal for an outdoor ceremony. The switch to hold the entire event at the Armory two days before the wedding was nothing short of amazing and came together beautifully! 

The ceremony was intimate and sweet. Their long time friend officiated and there wasn't a dry eye in the house during their vows! 

Family style dinner was served and sweet toasts were made. Then came the real party...their four and a half hour dance party!

Throughout the planning process Darcy made a point to make sure their guests would at least have 3 hours of dancing. We did that and more when we got Darcy changed into her sequin jumpsuit and coordinated a flashmob with her 30+ girlfriends. It was AMAZING. I was beaming in the corner so proud of my bride!! 

Darcy & Joey, I wish you nothing but happiness on your new marriage. You two are the absolute BEST!

Big thanks to Junebug for the feature!

Jennifer + Mike


STYLE ME PRETTY (in my opinion) is easily one of the best wedding blogs out there today.  They regularly add new posts featuring amazing weddings, darling engagement sessions and great details.  The posts are always very detailed and include fabulous photos that really make you drool. 

 A great resource on Style Me Pretty’s website is The Little Black Book.  It is a state by state guide to a group of hand-picked wedding professionals that the site’s staff consider the best of the best.  We are beyond honored to be a part of of the Little Black Book and also to have had a few weddings recently featured on the blog!

A few days ago,  Style Me Pretty featured JENNIFER + MIKE’S URBAN WEDDING with a Persian twist !  Jennifer & Mike had a fabulous fall wedding that began with an intimate traditional Persian ceremony at the home of the bride’s parents followed by a blowout reception at PURE SPACE.   Jennifer was a dream bride—she has a really fun personality and came to us with good idea of what she wanted, but didn’t know how to pull it all together.  We took her colors (turquoise, fuchsia and eggplant), added a peacock feather motif and planned a wedding that none of her guests will soon forget.

From the welcome baskets to the place settings, to the cutting cake, little pieces of the Peacock theme were incorporated throughout.  (Peacock is also symbolic for Persians because the Peacock Throne is the name of the throne used by former Persian Kings.)
