Since we moved to Portland last November we have met some really amazing people. Many are wedding professionals like ourselves. One of the friendliest has to be Becky Simpson of No Ordinary Affair. She’s a talented event coordinator who specializes in wedding planning through out the greater Portland area. We highly recommend her to any couple in need of some extra help arranging the details of their wedding. Having viewed several of her events, I can say with confidence that her taste is flawless.
Becky is also the founder of Oregon’s Wine Country Wedding Professionals. The group’s members are some of the best wedding vendors in Oregon’s stunning wine country. In Becky’s spare time she hosts bi-monthly events where we can gather together, tour a wine country event space, and listen to presentations from different members about their expertise. I always enjoy attending her events and visiting the many vineyards that cover the wine country hills. The landscape is spectacular, definitely one of the prettiest places in the USA, and perfect for a memorable destination wedding.
The last networking event was held at Youngberg Hill Vineyards and Inn. Home of delicious award-winning Pinot Noir & Pinot Gris and a gorgeous wedding venue that is encircled by their vineyard and the valley to the Coast Range, Mount Jefferson, Mount Hood and the Willamette Valley. The inn’s owner, Nicolette Bailey, manages the grounds with great pride. She is responsible for the beautiful gardens, meticulous grounds, and cozy inn that make Youngberg Hill so special. Josh and I had the great pleasure to document the event and here are some of the highlights.
