Last evening we were at the beautiful Mansion at the Bayou for a meeting of our wedding professionals networking group. Bayou owners Greg and Irmi Brown have done a wonderful job of restoring the historic mansion and gardens as a wedding and event site. Check it out - it's beautiful!
Becky from No Ordinary Affair coordinated the events of the evening and is the energy behind promoting this great group of wedding and event vendors. We all know that Oregon Wine Country has a lot to offer. It is our group's mission to spread the word throughout the area - and across the nation! Wine Country is fast becoming a choice wedding destination, and we want everyone to know that everything you need for a fabulous event is right here.
Delicious and hearty appetizers (dinner!) were prepared by Haagenson's Catering (aka Ribslayer). Indulgent and intensely flavored chocolates were presented by locally produced Majestic Chocolates. The evening culminated with a series of entertaining and artistically arranged video clips put together by Ryan Chaney of Focal Point Digital Media showcasing their extraordinary ability to capture the essence of a wedding experience on video. (Oregon Bride Magazine has just given Ryan the 2009 Wedding Videographer of the Year Award!) Altogether a fun evening, and a great opportunity to get better acquainted with fellow wedding professionals.
