Oregon School Counselor Association Conference Photos

Got some photos back from our Oregon School Counselor Association conference a couple weeks ago. So great working with this group! EJP Events helped them from beginning to end, starting with venue search, contract negotiations, sponsor and vendor solicitation and management, catering menu planning, registration, social media, event marketing (the conference sold out for the second time we have been involved!), to onsite coordination and check in. We even printed and ordered their swag items, such as t-shirts, bags, pens, and notepads.

Curtis and Sarah, A Portland Wedding at Mt. Tabor Park and the Ace Hotel

We recently received these lovely pictures from David Barss, one of our favorite photographers who always without fail sends us a disk and a link after the wedding (hint, hint 😉 )

Curtis and Sarah married at the Mt. Tabor Summit, a Portland Parks site. Often folks are wary of public parks sites and wonder if they are safe, if strangers will interrupt the wedding, if the facility will be clean. All I can tell you is about my experience as a coordinator, and that is, with good pre-planning, a public parks site can be a wonderful and unique venue; and that members of the public in the overwhelming number of cases are respectful of a wedding.  I personally have not encountered any problems at the weddngs I have had in public parks sites such as Mt. Tabor, Council Crest Park, Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden, and many others.

So consider that public parks site that you may have overlooked!

Thanks again to David Barss Photographer for the photographs.

Elegant Bride, Spring 2009 issue is out! (And we’re in it!)

Elegant Bride Spring 2009
I love getting the mail. Especially when there is a new bridal magazine to read.  All the pretty pictures!  So when I opened up the cover of the Spring 2009 Elegant Bride magazine, it was a treat to see one of our clients' weddings featured in their "New Ideas" section. ("Buttoned Up", page 66.)

It brought back great memories of connecting with a really fun client (Amber of The Ribbon Jar), and bringing all of her and her fiance's ideas to life.

I also loved the cover color scheme of tangerine and green — reminded me of our EJP table setup for Art of Weddings in January. This is sure to be a hot color choice in 2009.

Thanks to Elegant Bride for the shout-out!
