What does a Pop of Joy wedding look like?

Package A (Basic)- We require that you have your venue reserved for a minimum of 4 hours. We usually arrive at your venue 1.5 hours prior to your wedding ceremony to set up our chairs, arch of your choice, table, and any other decor rented through us. The earliest guest usually arrives 30 min prior to ceremony. Your officiant, provided by Pop of Joy, arrives and performs the ceremony. Once the ceremony starts you will have 2 hours (don't worry, it's plenty of time) to get married, take photos, and enjoy a small reception with your family and friends. We then take down all of our items (chairs, arch, table, and any other decor rented through us).

Your Pop of Joy officiant arrives about 10 min prior to your ceremony. Once the ceremony starts you will have 2 hours (don't worry, it's plenty of time) to get married, take photos, and enjoy a small reception with your family and friends. We then take down all of our items (chairs, arch, table, and any other decor rented through us) and clean up.

*Please keep in mind that we set up the beverage tables with champagne flutes & sparkling cider & water on ice. Your guests will serve themselves water and sparkling cider. We do this to make sure that the sparkling cider is cold, fresh, and free of any debris. We also set up the cakes on cake stands with the cake knife & servers ready for you to cut, plate, and serve. 


How many guests can I have?

Pop of Joy packages are designed for intimate weddings of 24 people or less.


Can I have bridesmaids & groomsmen?

Yes, as long as your total guest count does not exceed 24 people including your bridal party. While we do not include bouquets or boutineeres for your wedding party they can be added on to your wedding package. *Additional fees will apply.


The latest that you can book a pop-up wedding is 3 weeks prior to you wedding date.

When can I book?


You are more than welcome to bring your ceremony music and assign a friend or family member to have it play during the ceremony. Most brides use their cell phones and/or a small portable speaker along with Spotify premium. You can also have background music play during the reception. Don't forget to charge the batteries!

How do I bring my ceremony music?


How do I apply for my marriage license?


Yes, the mailing and filing of your completed marriage license is included in the package cost!

Will the officiate file my marriage license after the ceremony?


Rain is often considered good luck on a wedding day! This is Oregon and rain happens. We do, however, recommend having a back up plan and continually checking the weather in the weeks prior to your wedding. Most rental companies have tents available that you can place on hold in case of rain and will put them up for you for a small fee.

What if it rains?


We provide pop up weddings to all of the Willamette Valley in Oregon. From Eugene to Portland and all in between. 

You book your venue and we come to you! Most of our brides choose to get married in their back yards, homes, friends or family members home or back yard, or their favorite parks. You can find beautiful spaces in so many places! 

If you need help finding an affordable space for your wedding please take a peek at our venue recommendation list.

Where can we get married?


I have guests coming that can not sit on stools. Do you have chairs available?

We love our unique and chic wood wedding stools but if you have elderly or disabled guests that require a chair with a back for your wedding don't worry! We have 6 wood chairs with backs that we would be happy to provide for your special guests.
