Tetherow | Bend, OR | April 20th, 2019
Venue: Tetherow Resort | Photographer: Julie Morgan Photography | Florist: Bend Floral Artistry | Hair and Makeup: Cassidy Elise
Laura and Travis had their romantic spring wedding at Tetherow Resort in April 2019. They both got ready in separate houses located on the property. Laura had her natural makeup and polished updo done by Cassidy Elise. She wore a modern, low back dress with pearl hair accessories and blue embellished heels. Travis wore dark blue pants, a brown tweed vest, and a baby blue tie.
They shared their first look inside a private lounge in Tetherow. Julie Morgan Photography took all of their amazing photos. After the first look, it was time for family photos and wedding party photos. Everyone dressed in a similar color theme, with pops of pastel blues and purples. And who could forget their adorable pup, complete with a floral collar full of fluffy hydrangeas?!
As guests walked into the building, they were greeted by a welcome table with a unique framed guest book. Laura and Travis held their ceremony inside Tetherow, in front of the sprawling fireplace. The mantle was lined with flowers and candles. Large vases with spring branches flanked the fireplace, and little bouquets of baby’s breath hung on the wood ceremony chairs to line the aisle. The stunning florals were all created by Bend Floral Artistry.
Laura and Travis shared an intimate ceremony with their family and friends, and pup! After exchanging vows, rings, and a kiss, it was time to start the party. We stole them away with their maid of honor and best man to sign their marriage license. We like to use this time to give the couple a few minutes to enjoy some drinks, appetizers, and alone time, before they get swept up into the rest of the day.
Everyone enjoyed cocktail hour in the foyer, with appetizers and drinks. The couple took the time to hear toasts from their closest friends and family members. After cocktail hour, guests were seated inside for reception, and it was time for the grand entrances! The wedding party danced their way inside, while Travis took the opportunity to slide in, running right into the head table! It was a great moment full of laughs, that truly showed the joy and playfulness of the couple.
A welcome toast from Laura and Travis got dinner started. After a delicious meal from Tetherow, the couple shared their first dance and parent dances with their mother and father. After that, it was open dance for the guests! And Laura and Travis were able to sneak away for some amazing sunset photos on the back lawn of Tetherow.
After some dancing, the couple enjoyed cutting their cake, and sharing desserts, which included chocolate chip cookies and macaroons. As everyone returned to dancing, Laura and Travis took some larger group photos of guests that they knew from different facets of their lives. It was a great way to get guest photos of those very special guests!
The day was full of family and fun. And we were so happy to provide our day-of coordination service to make sure everyone could relax and truly enjoy the day!
“Bree of The Indigo Bride helped keep my wedding day on track! I hired her for day of coordination and she did a great job helping to organize some of my personal touches for the reception and stay on time. It was nice to not have to think about anything but fun on the wedding day!”
