We all know how important the nitty gritty details for your wedding are…. but what good are the details if your photographer doesn’t ROCK? We are so lucky, at AniA, to work with many, many talented photographers, and the illustrious Ashley Forrette is definitely one of them. She is fresh, dedicated, and incredibly artistic. We have yet to see Ashley do the same thing twice- and that’s saying a lot! She also helped us with our zany inspiration shoot back in January.
Long story short, she’s been generous enough to donate an ENTIRE engagement shoot! That’s right, not just a half-shoot. A whole, big, glorious one. Take a gander below, and see why we’re so excited about this giveaway…
You don’t want to admit it, Portlanders, but you LOVE you some McMenamin’s. The tots are always tasty, the art weird/awesome, and who doesn’t love a Rubinator? Well, McMenamin’s is spreading their wings in Gearhart, and expanding the Sand Trap to include a hotel that will knock your socks off. Lucky for us, McMenamin’s looooooooooves weddings, and donated a sweet night at their new hotel in Gearhart for our event! Just another reason to come to CHOICE and be eligible for this raffle!
For our event, we are gathering several fantastic raffle giveaways for the guests who purchase seated admission tickets. From personal experience, we know that Wayne Personal Training is your best bet for pre-wedding workouts. His quirky personality, fresh approach, and incredible knowledge will be your fast track to your honeymoon-bikini-ready body! He has graciously donated SIX FREE MONTHS of his hardcore Boot Camp for our event. Even if you’re not heading to CHOICE (Why aren’t you? You should be. Click here.)- check David out. He’ll give you a special deal if you mention AniA!
Our next theme is brought to you by the girls at AniA, with the help of floral artist Rosemary Stafford. Our concept for this theme was to have the glory of floral whimsy with the fierceness of modern colors. We’re going with a mint green to white ombre, lots of organza ribbon, and some surprise centerpieces (you’ll get a kick out of them).
The incredible, tasteful ladies over at Gather Events are heading up our theme, “Portland Architecture.” The same theme was used for our gown design contest! We love our dear city, and the complex, beautiful history that’s wrapped up in the buildings that surround us. Check out their super cool inspiration, drawing from the copper and steel of the bridges that line our city.
