Brenna and Mike were married on a lovely summer day in August of 2019. Aspen Hall, located in Bend, Oregon provided the coziest, woodland location for all their family and friends to gather and celebrate their marriage.
The day kicked off with hair and makeup services by Makeup Mafia Weddings. Brenna looked gorgeous wearing a beaded, vintage, cap-sleeved gown with a gold and pearl headpiece. Mike looked dapper, in his black suit with a bright, floral tie. The Bend Flower Company provided the florals, featuring Brenna’s stunning bouquet of white roses, anemones, and fresh eucalyptus.
As the couple opted to not see each other prior to the ceremony, emotions were high as Brenna walked down the aisle. Many laughs were had and tears were shed during the nuptials. The ceremony site was set perfectly appointed facing the nearby bridge over Shevlin Pond. The site featured wooden garden chairs, additional potted trees, fresh lavender springs, and greenery. A fresh lavender petal toss was performed at the completion of the ceremony, which not only looked great but smelled amazing as well! Victoria Carlson Photography captured these moments perfectly and provided photography throughout the celebration.
The guests transitioned to cocktail hour where Twist Cocktail Catering Co. provided all the yummy beverages. After a sudden summer rainstorm, everyone moved into the reception area where the dining tables were lined with greenery and a dazzling balloon installation from The Indigo Bride adorned the cozy fireplace. The tables were set with crisp white linens, pinstripe napkins, fresh rosemary, and custom-printed menus. After the grand entrance and first dances, the guests were invited to dine on delicious street tacos from El Sancho.
After dinner and sentimental toasts from the bridal party, Brenna and Mike cut their stunning hand-painted cake from Sift and Gather. The guests also enjoyed french meringue cookies, as well as ice cream cookie sandwiches that Brenna made herself! Everyone continued the night with dancing to the music provided by Bend Event Sound.
The day was full of laughter, love, and fun! We were glad to have provided our Day-Of Coordination package for Brenna and Mike to ensure all logistics were seamless and to allow them to fully enjoy their special day.
