What makes Gifford's Flowers unique?
The Gifford family business started four generations ago in the 1920's,  when Mary "Tillie" Gifford opened a flower stall at the Portland Farmers Market. Upon returning from Service in Europe at the close of World War II, Marshall Gifford (Tillie's son) and his wife opened their first flower shop in Northeast Portland. Later, in the 1970's, Marshall and his sons Bill and Jim, purchased Doving Flowers and moved the business downtown to where the current Nordstrom's store is located. After several relocations, Gifford's Flowers eventually established themselves at the corner of Jefferson and Broadway where they have been for over 30 years.

Laura has become the fourth generation to carry on the family tradition.  Since 1997 she has been helping couples with planning and making their visions become wedding realities.  Laura has brought her resourcefulness, creativity, and personal touch to hundreds of weddings of every shape and size.  She is active in the community of Portland wedding vendors, and is eager to help you express your personal style on the most important of occasions.

What makes them unique?
Munson Event Rentals was established in 2014 by owner Aaron Munson while planning his own wedding. While making a list of items needed for the wedding, a Photo Booth kept making the top of the list; however after the venue, photographer, DJ, and food, there just wasn’t enough left for a Photo Booth. He noticed that despite varying levels of quality and setups, that Photo Booths were just SO expensive and out of reach of most brides. Realizing that a Photo Booth wasn’t in the budget for his wedding, a decision was made right then and there to start Munson Event Rentals.

Munson Event Rentals is a company that cares about you; one that provides the highest quality Photo Booth around, and the most competitive/inclusive pricing you’ve ever seen in a Photo Booth! We believe every bride should be able to afford an amazing Photo Booth that produces the highest quality instant prints that will be treasured for years to come. Customer service is the cornerstone of Munson Event Rentals. If you’re looking for a Photo Booth for your upcoming wedding, the rest assured that you’ve found a company that is priced right and provides the highest quality of customer service.

What makes them unique?
Portland Wholesale Jewelry has its roots in the fine watch and diamond segments of the jewelry trade, providing services to the jewelry trade in Portland. It was 1987 when Doug, our owner, purchased a diamond engagement ring for his fiance' at a national retail jewelry store in a shopping mall. After a later trip to the diamond district of San Francisco he learned that as an enthusiastic but uninformed engagement ring buyer he paid far too much for far too little. This experience has been crucial in forming Portland Wholesale Jewelry's values in providing fabulous bridal jewelry to couples, "Exquisite Design, Extraordinary Value, Exclusive Attention". By providing our stunning designs and custom work directly to the public, we elevate the engagement ring buying experience to a wonderfully creative and personal event!
