Alexandria and Brian were married on a chilly, fall day in October of 2020. Traveling to Central Oregon from Florida, they decided to host an intimate micro wedding with fifteen of their closest friends and family. Their loving ceremony took place at the grandiose Smith Rock State Park amphitheater which features an incredible backdrop of towering rocky formations and the pleasant Crooked River below. Following the nuptials, they all congregated in a hygge-vibed clear tent, set at Riverhouse on The Deschutes. It was the perfect backdrop and setting for their destination micro wedding.
Their wedding day started off with the bride and groom getting ready with their closest and most treasured friends and family in two of the rooms at Riverhouse on The Deschutes. Alexandria and her gals had their hair and makeup done by the wonderfully talented NE Makeup and Hair. Alexandria’s wedding dress was the perfect combination of elegant and boho. Her lovely gown was purchased at Olivia Bowen Bridal, featuring an off the shoulder look, covered in crochet lace with hanging bohemian sleeves and a stunning, long train. Complementing the gorgeous dress was gold teardrop earrings from BHLDN and an indie white Lack of Color hat. Brian looked dapper, wearing a sharp, dark green suit and black turtleneck shirt purchased from MDO Miami.
Next up was the breathtaking and beautifully intimate ceremony. The setting among the magnificent Smith Rock State Park landscape was perfectly adorned with ground floral arrangements designed by The Bend Flower Company. The arrangements were filled with large plumes of pampas grass, football mums, eucalyptus, as well as rust and light violet roses. Alexandria’s bouquet was the true showstopper, with an oversized dried protea amongst the same beautiful types of florals. Lauren Nicole Photography captured each and every detail of this incredible day. After their heartfelt ceremony, everyone made their way back to Riverhouse on The Deschutes to continue the celebration.
The guests were welcomed by a stunning clear tent from Incredible Events which housed a long community farm table for dining. The table was garnished with magnificent floral arrangements, vintage green goblets, and tapered candles arranged in rustic wooden holders. The guests enjoyed a multi-course plated dinner under bistro lighting which provided a perfect romantic glow for enjoying their meal. Wild Light Films provided videography throughout the celebration. Everyone took time to relax in the cozy, lounge seating that featured a Jefferson velvet loveseat and plenty of comfy, velvet pillows from Curated Event Rentals. To end the evening and satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth. the guests indulged in cupcakes, pastries, and a delightful two tier wedding cake by Crumb Cakery.
We loved providing our Day-of-Coordination Package for Alexandria and Brian’s special destination celebration. Their micro wedding was absolutely stunning and such a pleasure to be a part of.
“Short version: The best decision we ever made!
We hired Bree for day-of coordination but were surprised to find that 6 weeks out she was already helping us tie loose ends. As Floridians traveling to Oregon with our families, we really could not have done this safely, or at all for that matter, without Bree. From adding cocktail tables to cocktail hour (oops! forgot those) to finding us a tent with heating at the last moment and suggesting additional masks for the reception; Bree had us covered. The days leading up to the wedding along with the wedding day itself were the most relaxed days of the year if you can even imagine that. We were able to truly enjoy ourselves and our day thanks to Bree and for that reason, we’d gladly choose her over and over again. Most importantly, in my opinion, she and her team were our advocates!! Everyone will tell you to do whatever you want but in truth outside forces (family, budget, venue, etc.) will push you towards compromises and changes in plans. This was not the case with Bree. At every twist and turn, at every obstacle or unexpected challenge, Bree was there providing solutions to make sure our day was EXACTLY what WE wanted. In a year like this one where so many compromises had to be made and on a day like ours where the temperature unexpectedly dropped to freezing, Bree + Victoria did everything possible to keep our wedding exactly how it was planned and how we wanted and for that I am FOREVER grateful.
Thank you so much to The Indigo Bride team and their fearless leader!”
