Our Boutique Style Portland, Oregon Wedding Planning Company loves to help couples build their perfect wedding plan & change the “cookie cutter” norm in the wedding industry.
We deliver a collaborative edge & modern approach to our clients’ ceremonies & celebrations. It’s our goal to provide an exemplary experience from the first planning proposal to the last dance of the night on your special day.
I’ve always thought that if something is worth celebrating, it’s worth celebrating in style. And there’s nothing I like better than working with our clients to create and put on events that reflect both their unique personalities. I take a genuine interest in my clients and their lives and happily work side by side with them to tailor their event to specifically match their visions. I also know that every event comes with its challenges and getting to know my clients inside and out lets me anticipate their needs and lets you rest assured that your event will come off flawlessly.
I started working in the events industry over eight years ago. Prior to opening my own business, I worked on the catering side of events. When I’m not planning or attending fabulous events, you can find me hanging out with my fantastic husband, Jim and our amazing children & grandchildren, and our beautiful pit bull Shila Lou.
A little personal note about me, I love a Starbucks mocha frappe to start my day & a Malibu & diet Coke to finish my evening. I am an active member of both Wedding Network USA and The Wedding Lounge, and have excellent relationships with vendors throughout Portland.
My name is Mary Ridderbusch. I live in Portland and am in love with this city. Originally from Salem, I studied at The University of Oregon before moving up the I-5 corridor to the land of plaid and food carts. This will be my third wedding season working with Lisa and Tilly to create amazing events for wonderful people. In my other life I currently plan public events for 250-7,000 people, but before that I worked at the University of Oregon planning various events as a Resident Assistant and Conference Assistant. I’ve been planning things since I learned how to be bossy- so basically since I was born. I am an experienced groomsmen wrangler, mother of the bride soother, and put that here-not-there-er. I love couples who really want to make their wedding an expression of who they are as individuals and as a couple- small touches and unique ideas are what make an event memorable and helping to create those small pieces of someone’s day is one of my very favorite things. Bridal trends come and go but if you make your event truly your own it will always feel genuine and personal- to your guests on the day and to you and your love on your 50th. Congratulations, happy planning, and I look forward to meeting you!
