The Knot Pro Experience Portland: What Desert Dreams Are Made Of!

The Pro Experience Portland is what desert dreams are made of!  The Knot + WeddingWire came together for the Portland Mixer connecting incredible wedding pro’s from the Pacific Northwest region.  The talented Luxe Event Productions created a rustic yet desert chic atmosphere in the uber cool Castaway + Block House venue.  Fashionable and lively, the venue is located in Portland’s Pearl District home for hip brands, indie boutiques and the massive Powell’s City of Books; an ideal location to host the trendsetting wedding vendor community.

Archive was honored to showcase our newest inventory taking main stage!  Check out the Ansel blush armchairs sitting pretty beside our mid-century Taylor sofa.  Accessories set the boho desert vibe, we layered the Devon rug and Moroccan poufs  then topped it off with a modern twist from our Layla coffee table.

The Archive team also set up a photo opportunity for up close and personal headshot images. To replicate this photo booth setup at your wedding, lean on our design team to play with different pieces incorporating your custom color story and theme. It’d make the ideal corner to snap some bride and groom images post nuptials or to grab a large group from the wedding party!

Strike a pose!  The Knot Pro magazine styled effortlessly on our Mila copper side table.  We can’t help but eye the Ariel rattan chair duo in the backdrop – absolute desert perfection! 

Speaker’s panel never looked more chic, or cozy in this case.  Loving all the copper details mixed with classic pillar candles to set the mood. 

Inspiration was sparking in every corner, especially here in our petite lounge.  We bet they are thinking how cute our Saffir rattan bench is looking while dreaming up ways to style her for their next big event!

Cheers to our second year collaborating with The Knot Pro for a Portland social!  New connections were made and old friends were reunited with. The Portland wedding community continues to continue inspire us and push boundaries within event design. Thank you for having us The Knot + WeddingWire.

Did you see any pieces that’d you’d love to use for your event? Need help styling them another way? We’d love to hear from you! Feel free to drop us a note and we look forward to designing your dream space.
