Join us as we show you how we transformed one of Oregon’s most beautiful and sought after outdoor wedding venues, Bridal Veil Lakes. You’ll experience a taste of our curated collection and hear first hand from one couple who utilized our services. In fact, read about what Meng had to say about her experience with us:

There are not enough words to describe the incredible vision, artistry and tireless efforts of Something Borrowed and how they helped us execute the romantic, modern and whimsical wedding of our dreams with their styling & design services.


While I had a mismatched list of items I wanted to incorporate, I was still at a loss for how everything would fit together for a cohesive theme. Luckily, Something Borrowed was piloting their event styling and design services, and I was connected to Amber, their in-house designer who is a creative visionary. Over the next few months of working with Amber, she was able to transform our rambling ideas and faintly developed inklings into our ultimate dream wedding.


From creating vision boards, to sending Pinterest and Etsy listings my way (I never would have found the inspiration for our hand-lettered envelope place cards if it weren’t for her suggestion), and even sourcing and creating the fabric for our chuppah, Amber was a design and creative powerhouse. She even found an illustrator to create custom table illustrations of the places we traveled to, and had him create a breathtaking chalkboard backdrop. She worked effortlessly with our other vendors (i.e. day of coordinator and florist) to make sure that everything came together in one unified theme.


Throughout the entire wedding planning process, I felt confident relinquishing the design elements to her, and her expansive knowledge of the Something Borrowed inventory meant that she would craft a wedding that would suit us perfectly.


Upon walking into our wedding, I was literally in tears because it was so beautiful (and the groom too!). She blew all of our wildest expectations through the water with the special seating areas, event stations, and table decor, creating a modern setting infused with an air of rustic charm. We simply could not have done all the design and set up by ourselves, and every detail was carefully crafted and put in place to create a stunning final result. From the trinkets we had collected on our travels that were delicately placed into terrariums on the head table, to the postcards we had collected that were arranged in a guestbook display, every station was a wonder and delight to look at. Even after the wedding, our friends and family raved about how magical the design and atmosphere was.


We can unequivocally say that working with the design services of Amber and fully utilizing the inventory of Something Borrowed was the best decision we made in planning our wedding. Every individual working at Something Borrowed, from Lindsey their client services coordinator, to Amber the stylist and Lane the owner is so sweet, personable, responsive and this goes without saying; their design sense is impeccable. They were the first ones there, and the last ones to leave our wedding site, and we breathed easy in knowing they had all the decor and set-up covered; we didn’t have to lift a finger!


A million thanks and our heartfelt gratitude to Amber & the Something Borrowed team for their flawless execution in making this the most memorable day of our lives!!
