Who should you choose for your special day? Fortunately, we’ve got a few ideas: Maloy Jewelers: In 1986, Maloy’s Jewelry Workshop first opened its doors in Portland. The aim was to offer both lovingly handmade custom pieces and high quality antique and estate jewelry from the Georgian period (18th century) onwards. Maloy’s wanted to offer distinctive pieces that would be passed down from generation to generation. They also offer expert repair and restoration. Botanica Floral is an eco-friendly full service custom floral studio located in SE Portland, providing exquisite flowers throughout the Portland metro area that specializes in local, organic, fair trade and sustainably grown flowers for weddings, events, corporate accounts & functions, private parties, holidays, tributes & memorials, daily deliveries and more. So whether you are looking for something simple or extravagant; they’ll provide you with gorgeous flowers every time. Real Mother Goose: Walk into one of their stores, or browse their collections online and you'll find art and craft with character. Each piece has a story, an identity, and a spirit.
