Come and experience what a wedding should look, feel and sound like. Bride and grooms from Portland OR want more than brochures, phone calls, and meetings at your office or at a local coffee shop! You want to see your vendor in action to see if they are as good as they say. The Wedding Experience is an event that takes the guest through the 5 Scenes of a wedding from Ceremony, Cocktail hour, Dinner/Meal time, Dessert & Entertainment, and Dancing & Party-time!
Drew Carney from KGW's Out & About will be the host of the evening, and will guide guest through the night. Drew will ask vendors important questions that brides want answered! He will also do the drawing at the end of the night for the "Honeymoon Package": Presidential Suite & 20min helicopter ride around Portland provided by Konect Aviation.
We want to provide an event that shows the client what the wedding should look and feel like. See your vendors work under pressure, learn about their personalities, and win really fun prizes that will make wedding planning fun again! Find out why wedding planners can actually save you money and take stress away the day of your wedding.
