EUGENE, Ore. — More than 100 brides-to-be brought their pen and paper and their wallets to the 11th annual Oregon Wedding Showcase at the Lane Events Center. Fifty-five exhibitors were on hand, like cake bakers, caterers, photographers, D.J.’s and more. A fashion show included multiple give-a-ways, including a free trip to Las Vegas, and hundreds of gowns were marked down in price. But perhaps the showstopper at the showcase was a cheetah from the Wildlife Safari. Couples can have their wedding at the safari and pose with animals.
“They can come out and see so many different people for their wedding all in just one stop, where as to go to see all these different people it would take hours and hours and days and days and weeks,” said Judy Van Valkenberg, Oregon Wedding Showcase owner.
Sunday the show will run from 11:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Organizers expected well over 1,000 attendees.
