Heidi and Nate were granted a wedding by Wish Upon A Wedding, when they applied for the program after Heidi received a devastating diagnosis. With little time left, they wanted to make the most out of every moment, and for them, that meant getting married. Wish Upon A Wedding reached out to us to plan Heidi and Nate’s donation wedding within one month, given that time was truly of the essence. It was a challenge to pull everything together within a month, but it was also so rewarding to provide a dream wedding to a couple facing such difficult circumstances. All of the vendors involved gave so much to make this wedding happen. We are so grateful to everyone who gave their time, energy and money to pull together such a beautiful and intimate wedding for such an amazing and strong couple.
Ely Roberts donated his photography services, but the day before the wedding, a giant snow storm rolled in! Unable to make it back to Bend in time, he called on Tony Gambino to take the shots, while Ely edited the photos. We also had Mike Hiatt Media film the event, and provide gorgeous footage of this magically snowy day.
Edge Hair and Makeup provided natural and soft makeup for our bride Heidi. The Posie Shoppe created all of the beautiful florals, from the Bride’s bouquet to the Groom’s boutonniere, to the garland that ran the length of our reception tables. Chalked Creative designed and printed invitations for the couple, as well as created calligraphy signs for the big day.
The High Desert Museum hosted the event, while Illuminate Your Night donated their services, and lit up the hall with their zigzag bistro lighting. The candle decor were rentals donated by Curated Event Rentals, along with the wood tables and glassware. The flatware was a donated rental from Set In Your Way Rentals. The linens were donated by Linen Tablecloth.
All of the delicious appetizers, entrees and drinks were donated by Bowtie Catering. Casey Parnell performed live music for the guests, while Bend Event Sound tended to the DJ equipment.
Central Oregon Daily News covered the story of Heidi and Nate’s dream wedding. The love and commitment between these two was so apparent and heartwarming. It was an honor to donate our partial planning package for this moment of love and joy for a couple that has faced so many difficulties. And we’re so grateful to everyone who helped make their dream wedding a reality!
