Keryn and Andrew knew they wanted to celebrate their wedding in Central Oregon, as it was near and dear to them and they wanted to bring everyone they knew together to fall in love with it also! Smith Rock held a special place in their hearts and the Smith Rock Amphitheater was the perfect spot to tie the knot.
The couple and their friends were able to stay overnight and get ready at a vacation rental named The Church, just outside of downtown Bend. This well established building has beautiful, modern touches that made it perfect for their October gathering. They started their day being pampered by Meghan Ceallaigh Artistry and Selfkare with Kelsey while enjoying mimosas and each other’s company.
Bend Party Bus chauffeured their guests from Bend to Smith Rock State Park to enjoy the ceremony and scenery. Their photographer, Jovelle Tamayo captured their true happiness of having their close friends and family together on this special day along with the magical backdrop of the high desert. Keryn wore a stunning black two piece gown that made her the highlight of the landscape.
With the help of Curated Event Rentals and Selva Design House florals, we were able to transform the woodsy, modern interior of The Church into an eclectic display of the rainbow, each place setting adorned with Keryn’s hand dyed napkins. The cozy patio and inviting open dining area welcomed their guests with the autumn warmth.
As the guests arrived back at The Church, they were greeted by a display of vegan appetizers from Bethlyn’s Global Fusion that satisfied everyone’s taste buds. Bethlyn created a delightful meal for all their guests to enjoy. Too Sweet Cakes brought the couple’s cake dreams to life with a black frosted cake, and Selva Design House gave it an extra pop with decorative flowers. Bryton Wilson provided videography for the celebration and documented their heartfelt toasts from friends and family.
Keryn and Andrew chose our Partial Planning Package for their intimate, micro wedding so that they could enjoy every minute of their visiting friends and family. We loved helping them to be able to relax and cherish their perfect day!
