Mike Piper, Wedding Planner Extraordinaire, and the Elysian Ballroom: Where does one begin to write a review for someone and someplace that has exceeded your every expectation beyond anything imaginable? I am going to try… From first contact through all the preparations and planning, Mike Piper was professional and quickly responsive to all communication and questions regarding our ideas, thoughts, and suggestions. He provided honest advice at each step and more than accommodated our requests where possible. The venue provides a team of independent vendors to meet your every need and we used them all: Lisa McGuire of Crave Design who created and printed our invitations; Holland Photography; John Ross Music (DJ); Papa Haydn’s Wedding Cake services; and An Affair to Remember featuring Mike Piper florals; each providing a level and quality of service difficult to find these days. Mike Piper orchestrated it all! helping us make it the wedding of our dreams. The day of the wedding everything was dialed and proceeded like a superbly manufactured clock. Because everyone had worked a multitude of weddings at the Elysian everything was enchanting and proceeded seamlessly. The food, and staff at the Elysian Ballroom were magnificent and the day enchanting! Thank you Mike Piper!!! You and Your gift will be part of our memories of this day forever ~ Brad and Allyson Benson; and their parents

We inquired with a few venues in Portland and only Mike Piper at the Elysian Ballroom responded within the hour. My husband and I were so impressed with both the venue and Mike that we not only booked but also decided to use Mike's business (Affair to Remember) for flowers and other rentals. Everything turned out better than we could have imagined and the food was great with guests still complimenting!! My husband and I were not just pleased with the final product but also the service. Mike's team was so efficient having transformed the ballroom from ceremony to reception in less than an hour. Mike was also able to offer creative solutions accommodating both our budget while still supplying high-end rentals and flowers. We highly recommend the Elysian Ballroom and An Affair to Remember!

Mike Piper is amazing! I cannot believe how stress free my wedding was, and all thanks to him and his excellent team. Every detail was perfect and he was so responsive. I'd choose him again a million times!

As the mother of the bride, I couldn't have asked for a better wedding planner....Mike Piper is by far, the BEST. He guided my daughter (the bride) and I through this wedding process that could be a very hectic time. He took the stress away with his professionalism and wonderful suggestions. On the day of the wedding, he was attentive to all of our needs and my husband and I agreed that it was absolute money well spent.

Mike Piper did an absolute amazing job with the flowers and decor of our wedding ceremony and reception. Both my husband and I were BLOWN away when we walked into the church and especially into the reception space and saw the master piece that Mike created. It was breathtaking and all of our guests noticed and commented on the hugh floral centerpieces. It turned out to be so much more beautiful than either one of us imagined and we couldn't have been more happy with the results. Mike was really flexible and provided tons of options for us based on what we wanted for our day. He did such an outstanding job making our day so incredibly beautiful. I honestly couldn't have asked for anything more.

Mike and An Affair to Remember did an amazing job on my flowers for the wedding. I didn't know much about flowers and was pretty flexible of what I wanted. I showed Mike some bouquets and centerpieces that were in the my wedding colors and he went with it. I was in awe the day of the wedding when I saw all the gorgeous flowers. He did a fantastic job in making everything in that room come together. It also helped that An Affair to Remember also had rentals such as lanterns, table numbers, candle holders you name it) that made the room look classic and elegant.

You will be so glad you picked An Affair to Remember. I chose them because they provided the flowers for my brother's wedding and my sister-in-law raved about how great they were to work with - plus I remember the flowers being beautiful.

My sister-in-law was absolutely right. Mike (the owner) is amazing. He is super responsive, always professional but really personable at the same time. He did an amazing job visualizing exactly what we wanted, and making it even better! He even managed to make my mom happy and gave great solutions when we weren't seeing eye to eye during the planning process. He also worked within our budget, and provided suggestions to maximize our flowers and decor. It's important to note that An Affair to Remember isn't a florist, so every single flower they ordered for my wedding was used and they were fresh and stunning.

If I ever need flowers or an event planning company, or if anyone asks me for a recommendation, I will absolutely pick An Affair to Remember again.
