Planning a wedding can be overwhelming! What starts as a simple Google search can turn into an hours-long rabbit trail of vendors, recommendations, and endless websites. When all you have to go on is what you can find online, it’s tough to feel confident you’re choosing the right vendors for your big day. This is where our friends at NW Wed Pro come in.

NW Wed Pro is a collection of wedding vendors in the Pacific Northwest serving NW Oregon and SW Washington, focused on the Portland/Vancouver metro area. Chef du Jour is proud to be a member of this group of wedding experts. We meet once a month at different venues in the area to stay on top of our field, connect with each other, and support one another’s businesses. The greatest benefit we’ve seen is how much easier weddings go when all the professionals behind the scenes already know each other, have worked together, and have a solid working relationship!

You can visit the NW Wed Pro website ( for a full list of the talented businesses who are part of the network. You can browse the categories to find just the right person for practically anything you might dream of wanting at your wedding. We have members in a range of fields, including: bridal attire, bridal shows, cakes and desserts, catering, DJ’s, bands, event rental, favors and gifts, floral, décor, hair and makeup, invitations, jewelry, lodging, officiants and ministers, photo booths, photography and videography, transportation, travel, planning, coordinating, and other services.
