Rachael and Ryan were married at Brasada Ranch in April 2019. The rustic elegance of the venue spoke directly to their wedding vision. It was truly the perfect location to share their vows and celebrate with friends and family.
The day started with the couple getting ready in separate rooms with their wedding parties. Ryan and his groomsmen got dressed in blue jeans, deep blue ties, and light grey vests. They then shared some drinks out of their groomsmen gifts, custom engraved pint glasses.
Rachael got ready with her bridesmaids in a suite on the property. Her romantic makeup was done by Eye Shine Beauty and she wore a gorgeous ball gown with a horsehair skirt from The White Dress. After putting her boots and earrings on, it was time to grab the beers and head down to their first look.
They shared their first look on the stunning Trestle Bridge at Brasada Ranch. With a couple of Apocalypse IPAs from 10 Barrel, they chatted on the bridge, while Bridget from Lundyn Bridge Photography took some gorgeous photos! Mike Hiatt Media shot the stunning video of their magical wedding day.
From their first look, Rachael and Ryan headed over to the Range restaurant for some wedding party and family photos. The bridal party was dressed in flowy, deep blue dresses, and held lush bouquets full of white and blush roses and seeded eucalyptus from Posie Shoppe.
Their ceremony was held inside of The Range in front of the sprawling fireplace. The mix of wood and natural elements made the room so gorgeous, no ceremony decor was needed. The couple shared their personal vows, Ryan’s being handwritten on a mini scroll. After a lot of laughs and a few tears, Rachael and Ryan were announced as husband and wife, and they shared their first kiss.
Guests enjoyed cocktail hour with delicious drinks and yummy appetizers. The couple’s guest book was an embossed wine barrel top. They offered wedding mad libs to guests to enjoy a fun activity during the hour. Rachael and Ryan snuck away for a few minutes to sign their marriage license with their maid of honor and best man. It provided to be the perfect time to run outside and take some photos under the rainbow that developed during the ceremony.
Over in the barn, reception was ready for the guests. Long wood tables were lined with white runners, magnolia leaf garlands, and romantic candles. Minimalist white place settings were the perfect addition to the rustic decor. Fire pits were lit on the lawn with cozy blankets, providing the perfect spot for guests to catch up.
Before the night began, Rachael and Ryan were able to sneak away for some photos with the Brasada Ranch horses, one of their favorite moments of the day! When they returned, the guests enjoyed toasts, the first dance, parent dances, and the cake cutting. The guests all jumped up to join in the bouquet and garter toss, and after that enjoyed dancing the night away with Bend Event Sound as the DJ.
We provided our day-of coordination package for the couple to enjoy their day, without worrying about a thing!
“Bree is remarkable! She is very professional, personable, timely, creative, calm, and trustworthy. We enjoyed meeting up with her before the wedding, bouncing ideas off of her, and getting to know her. We both had complete trust in her for our day to go smoothly. There is so much behind the scenes that the bride, groom, wedding party, and guests have no idea about.. Bree communicated and met with our other vendors, creating a timeline to accommodate everyone. She provided me with vendor references, special opportunities, and was flexible with last minute changes. One of them, moving the wedding indoors last minute AND finding the marriage certificate I had forgot in my bag in another building! I really appreciated her organization and staying calm at all times, we needed that on the big day. She set up all of our decor based on my inspiration photos, and it was beyond what I thought possible, it was stunning!! We give the highest recommendation of The Indigo Bride, your planning experience and wedding celebration will be amazing with their help and guidance. Bree, thank you so much for enabling us enjoying our day, you did so much for us and I cannot express my gratitude enough!” – Rachael + Ryan
