Blame It On The Rain: Bella Umbrellas
In Oregon—no matter what the season—there is always a chance of precipitation. Luckily, the Northwest’s own Bella Umbrellas, located in Seattle’s downtown Pike Place Market neighborhood, makes wonderfully chic umbrellas to keep the raindrops from falling on the perfectly quaffed heads of couples on their big day. “I knew on my wedding day there would be no putting on a hooded jacket,” says Amy Heintz about her drizzly New Year’s Eve wedding to Greg Allen in downtown Portland. Instead, Amy rented the black-and-white pinwheel version of Bella’s Pagoda umbrella for a memorable photo op with her bridesmaids, also holding Bella Umbrellas at downtown’s Simon and Helen Director Park. Bella’s rental service reserves and ships as many of their large selection of parasols and colorful jeweled-handled umbrellas as you might need for your wedding. Select non-vintage umbrellas are also available for purchase from Bella (including the Pagoda) for a fashionable rainy day, every day. Pagoda umbrella, $129, available for purchase, or for rent starting at $20 for a five-day rental, bellaumbrella.com.
