You might think that at this point the season for wedding shows is on the wane. You would be wrong. Portland is sneaking at least one more in there before summer goes official: Stumptown Sweethearts is set to take place twice a year, showcasing "dessert bakers, clothing designers, wedding planners, floral arrangers, jewelry creators, accessory makers, and talented photographers and videographers" from Portland's community of micro-businesses from which you can load your big day up with special, handmade products that are sure to charm the pants off of visiting relatives who hear tell of the Northwest's thriving culture of makers. The inaugural event takes place on Sunday, May 20 at the Mission from 11 am-5 pm, with a fashion show at 2 featuring "wedding wear created by Amai Unmei, Urchin ReDesign, Dress Up Alice, and Amelia Apparel. Area musicians Andrew Grade, Inspirational Beets, The Bittersweet Trio and Funktastic are also slated to perform." And unlike most other wedding shows, this one is free to attend—you can thank the organizers at Mag-Big for that one.
