Photos up for Art of Wedding Event!

dsc_0006OMYGOD the sun is shining. It shined yesterday as well. In Portland people feel like moles when the sun shines during the winter (and sometimes in the summer). So hurry, get out there and get it before it’s gone and don’t forget your sunglasses.  I took the dog to doggie daycare (Fetch on MLK) this morning so I have to have another excuse to get out there while the sun shines.

The Art of Weddings last night was a big success according to Ericka Dickey (Congrats Ericka!) and several attendees. The Luxe Autohaus is a great venue. Plus it’s very close to my house which is always a bonus!

Here’s a photo gallery of the vendors on hand for the event. They were all local, upscale businesses so great to have them in one place so you can shop ’til you drop.

Here’s a taste of the Art of Wedding:
