Laura and Daniel’s festivities began with a beautiful ceremony nestled under large oak trees at downtown Portland’s waterfront park with views of the Willamette River. While the couple took family and bridal party photos, their guests were treated to a special cocktail social at RiverPlace Hotel’s Three Degrees restaurant before transitioning to Daniel’s family residence outside of Portland. Laura incorporated a rustic wedding theme with burlap, lace, mason jars galore and lots of crafty DIY touches. Guest dined over scrumptious meal hand-crafted by the talented folks at White Pepper. Oh the smorgasbord of dessert goodness was insane! In lieu of gifts, Laura and Daniel requested their guests to bring desserts and it was the best dessert bar ever.
Nadia Ly and her team of coordinators made our day perfect in almost every way. They had their hands full working between two locations, one for the ceremony and another an hour away for our reception. Almost everyone who saw me that day mentioned how calm and relaxed I was, and that was primarily because we had Creations by Ly to help make it all happen. I only had one thing to think about and that was marrying the man of my dreams! I never had to worry if or when something went off plan. Each time a situation presented itself, Nadia or one of her team was right there to take care of it. Creations by Ly handled everything from the timeline management, vendor coordination, setup and décor assistance, and kept everything going smoothly for over 12 hours. They even pitched in to clean up and helped other vendors to make it beautiful without being asked to do so. We may not have always seen eye-to-eye on the vision or details before our day, but I am a very detailed person and was not at all surprised or put off by that. In the end, there was nothing that tarnished our day. After almost a month our guests are still talking about how amazing every detail was, how flawlessly the day progressed, how tasty the food was, and how much fun they had. We could not have pulled our day off perfectly if it weren’t for the team at Creation by Ly. Thank you Nadia and the rest of the planners who made it all work just as I had hoped for.
