Micro Wedding With A Breathtaking View
Deschutes National Forest | Bend, OR | May 5th, 2018
Marian and Clayton married off the beaten path by Round Lake in Oregon with a scenic mountain backdrop. They started the day by getting ready with friends and family. Austin Gale did Marian’s hair and natural makeup. Marian shared a special moment with her grandmothers, when she revealed her gorgeous gown. Marian had one of her grandmothers hand embroider flowers and carrots on her dress. She had lace added to her gown that was handmade by her other grandmother. The heart warming moment that followed was the start of a very loving day.
After some photos with family and friends, Marian shared her first look with her father, who was overwhelmed with joy when he saw his beautiful daughter all dressed for her big day. From there, the small wedding traveled out to Round Lake for the ceremony.
Marian’s stunning bouquet was created by The Posie Shoppe. Bright colors of pink and orange mixed with Marian’s favorite vegetables made the perfect floral statement. Marian walked down the aisle with her father. The enchanting ceremony was filled with laughter, love and tears. It took place in front of their personal canoe, adorned with floral arrangements, beautifully made by The Posie Shoppe.
After their first kiss and family photos, Marian and Clayton explored the land for some jaw-dropping photos. The lake, mountains and trees that surrounded them created the perfect backdrop for their loving union. They even found some time for a quick row around the lake to steal some time for themselves.
The wedding party returned to The Church in downtown Bend, Oregon for cocktail hour and reception. Cocktail hour was held outside with a bright yellow ballon backdrop. We created the balloon backdrop to highlight the space and Marian’s favorite color. The Posie Shoppe added florals within the balloons to add even more whimsy to the installation.
The reception was help inside with tableware rentals from West Coast Event Productions and table rentals from Set In Your Way Rentals. We designed the modern table settings to feature clean lines and bright colors. The Posie Shoppe created and installed the gorgeous floral chandeliers that hung over the tables. Too Sweet Cakes made the vegetable cookie favors and the delicious cronuts and french macaroons.
Marian’s aunt and uncle expertly catered the event, with delicious bite-sized appetizers and a family style meal served in the middle of the table. The setting was perfect for friends and family to come together and celebrate the special day.
All of these stunning photos were captured by the amazing Ely Roberts. He perfectly reflected the intimate joy of the day within these gorgeous shots.
