If you are planning a wedding or elopement in Oregon, look no further than this blog post because I have some insanely talented recommendations for wedding vendors in the Bend and Portland areas that are featured in the wedding photos below. As an Oregon wedding photographer, one of the best parts of this job is getting to work with other creatives who share similar visions in the wedding industry. This autumn inspired elopement was one for the books and I am so stoked to finally be able to share the magic that was created on the Harvest Moon this past fall.
On the prowl for an outdoor wedding venue with gorgeous views of the high desert and Cascade Mountains? This modern and trendy elopement ceremony was held at the groom’s parents ranch turned wedding venue, Wine Down Ranch in Prineville, Oregon, and this gorgeous property provided us with unreal Central Oregon mountain views and a stunning backdrop for sunset portraits. It is a family-owned ranch that recently ventured into weddings and they are just LOVELY to work with. Their property has endless opportunities to have your vision come to life.
Lacy Kalberer is a wedding planner/coordinator with A Little Grace A Little Lace and she is a MUST HAVE for your wedding day. She was so wonderful to work with and put together a style and vision that is modern, trendy, yet timeless and beautiful. Her communication, work ethic, and eye for style is impeccable. She tied in several moon and lunar accents to really pull together the autumn and fall vision for this Bend elopement during the fall equinox.
The Bride wore a strapless, but unique, wedding dress from Willowby Watters. I loved how different and trendy this dress is, even for a strapless. I haven’t seen a lace pattern so unique and just cool. You can find this dress at Oregon’s premier bridal shop-Bespoke Bride in Bend Oregon.
Reverend Chris Lewis is an officiant like no other. He is hilarious, kind, and just an overall sweet man. This is the second Oregon wedding I have been lucky to work with him on and every time I see him, its like working with a friend. He gets his tagline “The English Gentlemen” honestly.
I was over the moon (haha) about the unique jewelry from Rachel Hughes at Saressa Designs that adorned the lovely bride. She had a black moon engagement ring tailored for the ultimate stylish bride. Her bridal jewelry look was completed with a tiny gold moon necklace and gemstone rings that made me immediately hop onto their website and order two exactly like the bride (I’m not joking).
Le Petit Flower shop created with her floral arrangements with moody, Autumn colors that added the perfect pops of color to contrast the golden desert tones of the venue. Scroll down and check out that floral centerpiece, it’s GORGEOUS.
Caitlin O' Bryant really touched on the harvest moon details with her insanely creative invitation sweet and “Love you to the moon and back” sign that hung from the bride and groom’s reception table. Her work is topnotch and I highly recommend her for any wedding invitation needs.
Crumb Cakery is one of the most talented cake artists I’ve ever seen. Their fall-infused dessert tarts and caramel pears decorated the reception and really tied the bride’s entire vision together.
Curated Event Rentals is a one stop shop for wedding rentals. With colorful vintage yet timeless, goblets, plates, silverware, candlesticks, etc- it really is a place where you can find everything for your wedding reception.
