Stephen and Emily's Wedding

Big

May is such a dicey month for weather, but our day happened to be lovely. Oregon City has a lot of construction going on which made things difficult, but the city is absolutely gorgeous and has lots of character, charm, and great vendors. If you can find vendors that know the city well and can have your wedding and reception in the same place, I highly recommend Oregon City.

We had two wedding cakes, a main cake and a groom's cake. The cakes turned out beautiful, but a lot of changes were made last minute that I didn't want. They also messed up the dimensions of the groom's cake, so it looked odd (we asked for a cube that was important to the design and got a sat-on rectangle). We also had a custom logo they promised to do, and they changed it to generic initials. All of the details I was most excited about were changed last-minute with zero apologies. They were also impossible to contact. I called them five times and emailed several more times in the month before our wedding and never got an answer or even a call back until about a day before, and by that point it was too late. The cake however was amazingly delicious, and they were both beautifully made and decorated. I wouldn't recommend them if you have your heart set on a detailed cake, but for regular wedding cakes they were pretty good.

Excellent job. I had the owner, Anthony, as my DJ. He was always professional, extremely knowledgeable, and very easy to get along with. If I had to do it over again the only thing about it I would change is giving him more power in picking the playlist. He has impeccable taste, and really listened to what I liked and didn't like at our meeting.

I cannot say enough about how marvelous my flowers were. Elizabeth and Emily were so professional and knowledgeable. When I heard from my bakers I needed flowers for the cake the day before the wedding, they stepped in and delivered them no problem and at no additional cost. My flowers were beautifully arranged and everyone could not stop talking about how wonderful the flowers were. They listened to my concerns and created a fabulous floral scape that I never would have thought would be in my budget. I was so incredibly impressed with them. I didn't have to worry about a thing.

John did a fabulous job. We was extremely professional and flexible when I changed up what I wanted a few weeks before the wedding. He even learned a custom song just for us. Everyone loved his singing. He made out wedding really special.

My pictures are fantastic! Gene was practically invisible during the ceremony yet he got the most amazing shots, I have no idea how he managed to capture all the moments he did. Fantastic job!

The venue is gorgeous, and they had plans for every weather contingency. Everything ran so smoothly, and I almost never saw a staff member. They even boxed up leftover cake for my family and I. It is a bit pricey though.

My experience was perfectly ordinary and fine, however they do not provide a continental breakfast as I had been told they did, and I saw them deny the reservation of a woman in a wheelchair who reserved an ADA room (which were apparently all booked up).
