Pure Space Wedding Featured on Style Me Pretty

This teal, blue and pink wedding reception, held at Pure Space, used the peacock feather as its main inspiration. Coordinated by Bridal Bliss, the wedding is currently featured on StyleMePretty.com.

From the bride…

“I wanted an urban, modern reception where the look and feel was sleek and sophisticated. The venue we chose was Pure Space on the north end of the Pearl district, a very chic part of town. I picked eggplant and burgundy with pops of teal, and we used the peacock feather as a source of our inspiration throughout the day.”

The Art Institute’s 13th Annual Fashion Show

On June 4th, Pure Space was transformed into a multi-level fashion show venue to host The Art Institute of Portland’s “Fit2Print” – Portland’s premiere spring fashion event. Over 1,000 guests enjoyed a 2 act fashion show, featuring artful creations from students majoring in fashion, accessory and graphic design.

The runway extended down the center of the main level, and featured nothing more than Pure Space’s exposed concrete floor for a minimalist, urban vibe. The upper mezzanine hosted the evening’s silent auction and VIP cocktail reception following the show. Mezzaluna Fine Catering provided fashionable sweet treats for the evening’s festivities.

John Kay & Steppenwolf Perform Live at Pure Space

In celebration of their 30th Anniversary, Pure Space management company West Coast Event Productions, Inc. took a Magic Carpet Ride with the legendary John Kay & Steppenwolf, who performed a live concert at Pure Space last Friday, April 15.

Over 500 clients, vendors and friends were invited to kick-off the year-long celebration with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and a private concert to commemorate the theme “Still Rockin’ After 30 Years.” Pure Space was transformed into a concert hall for the evening, and was completely carpeted and draped-off for sound and privacy. The venue featured a full stage, state-of-the-art JBL VERTEC sound system, and a custom designed light show with over 125 lighting fixtures and 14 moving intelligent lighting fixtures. Projected on an oversized screen behind the stage, a video show accompanied the band’s performance, and was designed and produced by John Kay’s 30-year veteran member and co-songwriter Mike Wilk (who recently joined the WCEP production team full-time).

 In the “Born to Be Wild” spirit, Paparazzi Tonight set up a photo booth where guests posed on a Harley motorcycle. Thanks to all of those who joined us for the celebration!

“I’ve been with John Kay for many years now, and this is the best gig I’ve ever played with John Kay and Steppenwolf!” – Gary Link, Steppenwolf Bass Player
