  • 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 weddi... Read more

  • 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!

  • 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 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.

  • Mike Piper and an Affair to Remember did the most incredible job on my wedding flowers. Our head table was breathtaking, and my bridal bouquet was spectacular. He exceeded my expectations in every way. He did such a wonderful job of working with our budget, while still providing us with the wedding of our dreams.

  • 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 Affai... Read more

  • Mike Piper does magics! I worked with Mike at Elysian Ballroom for my wedding design, colors, flowers, bouquet... From start to finish the service was excellent. I didn't even know exactly what I wanted when I went in for a consultation but Mike was great at providing options from Pinterest and some of his previous weddings that worked within my budget and color/flower choices. From the corsages to bouquets to table settings, everything was even more beautiful than we had expected. The ballroom table settings, candles, silverware, crystals were all provided complimentary and we just paid for flowers with an impeccable design. All of the fresh flowers look and smell amazing and it is uplifting just to walk by the ballroom after Mike and his staff finished the design in about 30mins during the cocktail hour. It was truly the most memorable night of our life and we owe this big time to Mike!

  • If there is such a thing as more than perfect then that's what An Affair To Remember is! Our wedding looked like an absolute fairytale and I can't thank An Affair To Remember enough for creating such a magical day! Working with them was a pleasure and a blessing- they quickly grasp your ideas and thoughts and transform them to a reality you would have never imagined. They provide several options and don't rest until you're overly satisfied with all factors related to the wedding no matter how big or how small. And of course, readily available to discuss anything that comes to mind. Perfection!

  • I have never been the girl that dreamed of my wedding my entire life. This being said, when I first got engaged I was clueless until I walked into the most beautiful, elegant space I had ever seen....The Elysian Ballroom. It was absolutely breath taking! Not only was it beautiful, but the ballroom's owner, Mike, was incredibly helpful throughout this entire process. He was so organized and on point with highlighting the major focuse areas of a wedding. He even put together the agenda for the ceremony and reception. All in all, I could not have asked for a better venue to have the most amazing day of my life, my wedding. Thank you Mike for everything! I would recommend your venue and services any day!

  • We just had our New Year's Eve wedding at the Elysian Ballroom. It was fabulous and we wouldn't change a thing! The venue is gorgeous and the owner (Mike) takes great pride in making the place look amazing. We had multiple guests comment on how beautiful the flowers and decorations were. The Elysian has two rooms - a ballroom and a bar area. We had a candlelit ceremony in the beautiful ballroom, followed by a cocktail hour in the bar area while they “flipped” the ballroom for dinner and dancing. The bar area looks like Casa Blanca with black and white décor and ceiling fans – totally classy and elegant, but not too stuffy at all. Then once the room was flipped, guests were in awe again at how beautiful the ballroom looked. Jerry the DJ did an outstanding job with the music during our ceremony, toasts and the after party. He served as the master of ceremonies and then kept almost everyone at the wedding dancing – I have never been to a wedding where so many people... Read more

  • 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.
