Wow! Hard to believe this event was back in September of 2013. Why didn't I post it then you ask? Good question. Lets call it life. Life happened. It happens to us all from time to time.
Although I'm not a wedding planner or stylist I was encouraged by Cupcake Wishes and Birthday Dreams to attend the Wedding Wire Mix and Mingle Event taking place in my city of Portland, Oregon. I called Wedding Wire and explained that I wasn't a wedding planner but I was a party blogger and very interested in attending. The Wedding Wire representative also encouraged me to attend. The event took place at West End Theater Ballroom . I loved the balcony just off the ballroom.
Bouquets and Balloons- Flower and Ballroom Decor for all events. Cheryl told me she started out with flowers and later got into balloons. The balloon decor is very popular she told me.
Image Floral and Event Design- Michelle has been creating beautiful floral designs since 1994.
Candy Glass Productions- Andrea and I talked about videos for my blog.
Modern Event Solutions- This is one person I didn't have to approach. He was like a hummingbird, zipping from table to table passing out his card, giving us a little information and off he'd go to the next table. Just the kind of energy I would expect from a DJ.
Mint + Mirth- Fine Event Bartending Services. Joni told me they do smaller parties too. Not just big events like weddings.
Linen Tablecloth- I talked to Ashley and Kristina for a long time. They seemed very interested and we discussed some ventures and they said they would be in touch. I didn't expect to hear from them, there were so many people to meet at the event. However, I received an email from them, which lead to a few more exchanges and as I type this, I need to get back into contact with them. Always a good idea to follow up. You never know what adventure an email could take you on.
