Sam + Nate | Leftbank Annex | Portland Event Planner

October 13, 2018

From Stephani… I first met with Sam and her mom Denise on one of their trips up from California. Sam has such an easy going personality and her mom knows her stuff when it comes to putting on events, so they were building a vendor team that was nothing short of amazing. Nate, self-admittedly, was along for the planning ride, but it was clear all he wanted was to ensure that his bride had the day of her dreams!  I was ecstatic to be asked to join the team! Reminiscing about this wedding brings so many smiles and happy memories. Jake from Sweetlife Photography did an incredible job capturing the day from beginning to end exquisitely.

Sam had a beautiful vision of whites, blues, and greens that translated into an elegant blend of garden and urban elements. Leftbank Annex was the ideal setting for the couple. The ceremony took place in the great room in front of a stunning arch by Blum Floral Design accented by perfect personal flowers for the wedding party.

The best member of the wedding party... Chloe! How adorable is she?


We then transformed the space for guests to enjoy the reception. Blum also composed beautiful centerpieces that incorporated those whites and greens with accents of blue tones.

Art of Catering developed a delicious menu that kept guests full from hors d’oeuvres through dinner and ended with delicious late night snacks. And their stunning cakes was designed by Dream Cakes.

Event Team Entertainment kept the party going till the very end!  The dance floor was packed the entire night. I will admit I loved this couple so much and their crew was so amazing that they convinced me to join the dance party for a song or two!!
