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 parentsSent on 02/27/2017

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!Sent on 09/18/2016

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!Sent on 06/27/2016
There is no one better than Mike Piper at planning and executing a perfect wedding day, from beginning to the end. You can trust his taste and his judgement as he guides you through the entire process of finding the right venders for you; selecting the best in accessories, floral, food... Whether in his own Elysian Ballroom or any other venue (he's worked in them all!), you will never go wrong with Mike. There are other planners/coordinators with comparable skills, for sure. I've worked with them all in my 35 years in the business. Each has their own specific personality and style to set them apart from each other. But no one is better than Mike Piper.
We have worked with An Affair to Remember over the years and have always enjoyed being the officiant at their events. They work very hard to create a seamless wedding day.
We have worked with Mike Piper for a number of years. He ALWAYS does an amazing job with his designs. His style is lush and grand, with impeccable attention to detail.
