We loved designing and planning this classic luxury meets garden party for Sally and Rob’s wedding! Their sophisticated palette of black and white with touches of gold and greenery was the perfect compliment to the natural beauty of the venue, Juniper Preserve. The late August day was lovely for gorgeous sunset lighting and an overall beautiful day for the couple to wed.

Sally and her ten bridesmaids began their day in the Juniper Preserve Spa with hair and makeup done by Central Oregon Bridal Beauty  who did an elegant low updo and minimal makeup for the bride and her besties. Rob and his buddies got ready in the Nickalaus locker room and then the couple headed to The Cave for their first look and beautiful portrait photos done by Marina Koslow.

As guests began to arrive, the bride and groom were whisked away for a moment to relax before the ceremony. Guests headed to The Event Island and took a moment to sign the guestbook, grab a chilled beverage, and find a seat. The ceremony setup was classic and elegant with a couple stunning ground arrangements and bridal party bouquets from Petals. Flowers by Katie. Sally and Rob exchanged heartfelt vows and shared a dramatic first kiss complete with a dip to seal the deal.

After the ceremony, everyone headed to the Event Lawn for cocktail hour. In true garden party fashion, a huge champagne wall greeted guests as they grabbed a glass of bubbles to enjoy under large white umbrellas, all provided by Heirloom & Co. Flip Flop Sounds provided a great playlist to set the mood for a fun evening ahead. When it was time for dinner, guests found their seats thanks to custom signage from Jenny G Designs. West Coast Event Productions provided the white sailcloth tent and cafe lighting where black bentwood chairs from Curated Event Rentals and white linen-draped tables with gold votive accents from Heirloom & Co. set an elegant theme for the evening. The delicious plated dinner was prepared and served by Juniper Preserve.

Dinner wrapped up with toasts from friends and family before the couple headed over to the dessert table for their cake cutting. The elegant square cutting cake created by Dreamin’ Desserts featured white velvet cake, strawberry mousse, and a champagne buttercream frosted in a rustic rough edge. The couple also opted for mini cheesecakes in dark chocolate, marionberry, and classic New York flavors for their guests to also enjoy. 

As the sun set, Sally and Rob stole away for a few golden hour photos while guests got ready for a night of dancing with live music from The Tasty Waves. Everyone enjoyed the rest of the evening dancing and dining on late night snacks until it was time to head over to the after party where Shuttle Oregon provided transportation. A Beautiful Union captured every special moment of the amazing day and created a timeless video the couple will be able to cherish forever.

Sally and Rob were such an amazing couple and we loved helping them plan their perfect day with our Partial Planning package. We know they have a beautiful life together ahead of them and we wish them all the best in their journey together as husband and wife!

“I cannot begin to put into words how amazing and talented Alisha and her team at Indigo Bride are and I cannot recommend them enough. Our wedding would not have been a fraction of what it was if it weren’t for Alisha – she brought my dreams to life. From handling everything with vendors that specifically matched my vision to coordinating with all of them – she took every ounce of stress out of planning a wedding while still making me feel like I was apart of every step and decision. Seeing it come to life the day of was surreal, her creativity and ability to bring everything we talked about to life was amazing (and handle every single thing in between). I think the best part of it all was that I felt like I was able to enjoy every step and milestone of wedding planning and not feel stressed or overwhelmed – all because or her! You need Alisha and Indigo Bride for your wedding!” 

– Sally + Rob

To say they knocked it out of the park would be an understatement! From the very beginning with our first phone call, Alisha and her team went above and beyond what we could imagine in planning and executing the wedding of my daughter’s dreams. Her organization, knowledge of local vendors, communication with everyone involved, keeping us on budget and professionalism was top notch. Then came the wedding day, it was perfect!!!! There were a few problems that occurred behind the scenes that we had no idea about because the Indigo Bride team took care of it all. We have one more daughter to get married and I would hire this team in a second. They made my daughter’s wedding day the best day of her life!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
