Hey Oregon Wedding Vendors!
I wanted to take a moment and reach out to my community of Oregon wedding industry event professionals. It is a difficult time for many right now. So much is unknown at this moment and it can be unsettling, but I do promise you we will see the other side of this.
Like many of you my inbox has been overflowing with information and resources and so on, not to mention all the online discussions that are happening. It can be overwhelming. And while I realize in some ways this is one more, my goal of this blog is to hopefully give you some quick links directly to the resources that are out there and the ones I have found most helpful after going through a lot.
If you should have anything to add please don't hesitate to email me and I will update this as I find any other good tidbits.
