Will + Rachelle | Castaway Portland Wedding | Portland Wedding Planner

We are honored to be featured in the Best of 2018 Oregon Bride Magazine.  There is nothing more rewarding then having your work featured in such a highly regarded publication.  We put so much love and thought into our weddings, and I just can't imagine anything better then seeing them in print.  Thank you Oregon Bride!

Will and Rachelle came to me with a pretty clear vision of how they wanted their wedding to look and feel.  They knew they wanted the day to have a bit of a moody vibe with rich hues of oranges, reds, and black.  We then added in hints of blush, and cement to add some softness.  The result?!  Such a refreshing and gorgeous design that was a true reflection of their style and personalities.

Swoon Floral Design did an incredible job on their florals and really brought their color pallet to life.  We did a mix of oval cement containers on the banquet tables and cement urns on the rounds.  She also incorporated black pillar candles into the head table, and a mix of amber votives which helped bring bring color interest throughout the tablescape.

Classic Vintage Rentals provided the farm tables, lounge furniture, and moody black flatware!  And we ordered Charcoal Grey Velvet table linens and runners for their dining tables.

A fun design detail we incorporated was using black acrylic for their signage and their table numbers.  Their escort board in particular was a huge self standing black acrylic board designed be See Level Design Co. with white vinyl, that made a statement and helped guests find their table assignments during cocktail hour!

Food was an important component to them as well.  Chefstable served a beautiful dinner which was a mix of plated and family style dining.  They had finger desserts to accompany their wedding cake, and they also surprised their guests with Chicken & Waffles as a late night snack- Yum!  Their cement styled wedding cake was created by the talented Dream Cakes!

Their group was on the smaller side for the lofty open space at Castaway, so in order to make the reception feel cozier we draped off the ceremony corner with a beautiful grey velvet fabric which created a really warm and cozy ambiance for their intimate group of 90 guests.  The newlyweds and their family and friends danced the night away under the twinkle lights at castaway!  It was a very memorable night, and definitely a highlight of my 2017 season!

XO,
Whitney

Introducing Whitney Werts & Company | Our New Name & New Look! | Portland Wedding Planner

We are so excited to introduce to you our new name and new look!  When I started Whitney Werts Events in 2012, I was young, driven, and with big dreams to establish a company that would fulfill my passion for the details and personalization that goes into the coordination of each event.  These past 5 years have been extremely rewarding-- filled with lots of exciting firsts, new opportunities, friends, challenges, lessons, incredible and inspiring clients, and of course growth!  I have put countless hours and heart into this business and it has evolved into a company that I am really proud of.

Going through the rebranding process enabled me to do some sole searching and not only reflect on how far we have come, but also what we have envisioned for the future.  While our look and our experiences have grown, our foundation and priorities still remain the same.  We are a boutique planning company, each of us take on a limited amount of events a year, and having a personal working relationships with our clients always will be our priority!  Getting to know our clients not only enables us to be the best planners we can be for our clients, but it also is what gives us the satisfaction and fulfillment in what we do.  Getting connected with our clients and seeing them live out their dream wedding day with their family and friends will never get old!

Not only have we matured as a company in these past 5 years, but our team has also grown!  I am so proud and blessed to have these talented, strong, ambitious women by my side.  This new name represents our growing team; it is not just a solo endeavor anymore, and I could not do it without these ladies by my side.

Our new look, reflects the maturity and years of experience we bring to the table.  With our vast knowledge of the ins and outs of what makes an event successful, and our extensive vendor relationships, we deliver personal, sophisticated, and timeless one-of-a-kind events for each of our clients.  And a big shout out and thank you to my friend Kelly of See Level Design Co. who brought our new look to life!
