Beth and Matt had an early August wedding at Rock Springs Ranch in beautiful Bend, Oregon. Beth started the day by getting ready with her bridesmaids at one of the cabins located on the property. Cassidy Elise provided hair and makeup for the girls. While Beth’s mom, sister and friends helped her into her dress, Matt and his groomsmen relaxed with some beers and a little football. After getting ready, Beth and Matt shared their first look. The moment was full of laughter, kisses, and their beloved pup, Dutch, who was also dressed to the nines in his matching blue suit.
The bouquets and boutonnieres were expertly crafted by Hey You Flowers. They perfectly matched the color palette of light green, blush and grey. After some fun photos with the bridal party and family, it was time for the ceremony. Beth looked absolutely gorgeous walking down to her soon-to-be husband, and the heartfelt and personal ceremony had every guest feeling the love. After signing their marriage license, it was time to party!
Guests walked up to the front lawn, where they were greeted by a large balloon installation on the lodge, which was designed, created and installed by us, The Indigo Bride! From there, guests grabbed personalized cocktails and passed apps provided by Bleu Bite Catering. They also signed the couple’s guest book, by signing customized puzzle pieces. Umbrellas and bistro tables rented from Central Event Rentals kept guests cool and relaxed while they mingled and played lawn games. During cocktail hour, Beth and Matt hosted a receiving line, so they could say hello to each and every guest. When you have a guest count over 125, we like to recommend having a receiving line, this ensures that you get to greet and thank all of your guests!
Beth and Matt had toasts out on the open lawn, where friends and family shared in the laughter and love. Heading into the reception, guests found their seats on a modern gold wire display. Long tables lined with greenery and dahlias greeted the guests. Place settings of gold chargers and matching gold silverware, completed the modern, minimalist vibes. Another large balloon installation in the wedding’s color palette hung above the guests as they sat for dinner, on chairs rented from Central Event Rentals. On each plate sat a prayer, that was sung together by the entire crowd to honor their family tradition.
During the family style dinner, served by Bleu Bite Catering, Beth’s sister surprised her with a toast that included pictures of Beth’s niece recreating treasured photos of Beth as a child. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house! After dinner, came dessert, a display full of finger foods, including brownies and cookies, provided by Bleu Bite Catering. And of course, the wedding wouldn’t have been complete without a piñata or two! One full of candy for the children, and one full of liquor bottles for the adults, was the perfect segue into a night full of dancing, DJed by Dave Clemens.
All of Beth and Matt’s beautiful photos were done by Natalie Puls. Beth and Matt purchased a day-of coordination package from us, in addition to the custom designed balloon installations. We coordinated their timeline and vendors leading up to their wedding day. On the big day, we setup and styled the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Finally, we guided the processional and all of the scheduled events, handled any issues that arose and ensured the night ran smoothly so Beth, Matt and all of their guests could stay in the moment and experience every smile.

“The Indigo Bride could not have done a better job on our August 2018 wedding. While we only technically had the Indigo Bride as day of coordinators, Bree was a constant resource in the weeks leading up to our wedding. She made herself available to talk through any vendor questions I had and to help me dial in the design of our space. The team also created the most unbelievable balloon display that blew away our guests. If you are getting married in central Oregon, Indigo Bride should be your go to.”
