Ellie & Alex


I first met Ellie and Alex in 2020. They had been planning a wedding bash in Portland for all of their loved ones, and when COVID hit, they were forced to pare down to a smaller celebration of 14 guests. It was a delight to have been asked to plan their intimate gathering then, and an absolute honor to be asked to plan their bigger party two years later! Fast forward to 2022 - not only were they celebrating almost two years of marriage, we also planned a joint first birthday party for their baby boy, Teddy. I had a blast showcasing their vibrant personalities and bowling alley setting with lots of whimsical, bowling-centric details, and their guests had a blast (finally!) partying on the lanes and on the dance floor.
