Portland Art Museum with Jessica Hill!

Jen and Vic were married in July at beautiful St Mary’s Cathedral in NW Portland with a celebratory reception to follow at the Portland Art Museum.  Classic and glamorous the wedding featured the bride’s favorite roses accented with touches of hydrangea, orchids, ranunculus and gardenias in soft shades of white, cream and ivory with gold accents.  

My favorite design element for the wedding was no doubt the stunning 5 tier cake from Dreamcakes that we filled with flowers!  A close second were the crystal chandeliers near the dance floor which we added strung orchids to for a touch of dimension.

One of the great joys of my job as a wedding florist is getting to know our clients who we’ll often work with for a year or more during the planning process.  People often want to hear the “bridezilla” stories but the truth is the vast majority of people are incredibly kind and gracious.  Jen and Vic could not be a better example.  I will never forget watching them at the end of a VERY long day taking the time to walk around the ballroom during cleanup shaking hands and sincerely thanking each member of my staff as well as everyone else that was still working (catering, security, the men vacuuming the carpet, you name it.)  I don’t know that I’ve ever seen that happen before and it was something that I will never forget.  So thank YOU Mr and Mrs Remmers for allowing us the opportunity to be a part of your beautiful day and for the reminder of how much a smile and thank you can mean!  We wish you all the best!
