Oregon Bride Magazine hosted the Best Of 2016 awards, which honor Oregon’s top wedding professionals. First, nominated by brides and grooms, then final round is voted by peers in the industry to recognize each others outstanding goods or services.
Oregon Bride Mag has the best taste when it comes to party planning. Hosted at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Portland, OR, there was a cocktail hour with appetizers, desserts, and of course, signature cocktail drinks. The room was decorated with a large floral wall perfect for pictures, and beautifully decorated tables. Following several hours of mingling with new friends (and old) in the industry, it was award show time.
Poison Waters was a lively host, making jokes and “wow-ing” the crowd with over-the-top hair and jewelry. The highly anticipated moment of the evening came when the awards were ready to be presented. The room was filled with a mix of excitement and nerves as the categories were announced.
The White Dress Bridal Boutique was nominated for Best New Vendor and to a wonderful surprise, WE WON! It was a sigh of relief and absolute joy to be honored with such a great award. We are proud to be a part of a great community filled with so much talent and passion for what they do.
