Welcome to The Indigo Bride
At The Indigo Bride, our passion is to create personalized events that leave you and your guests with lasting memories and extraordinary experiences. This is the one day you get to come together in love to celebrate what you’ve built together. Why not design a wedding around your unique relationship, how you met, fell in love and what you plan for your future? Those intimate details are the ones you and your guests will remember for years to come.
We also strive to cultivate an atmosphere that allows our couples, and their families, to relax and enjoy the day. Let us do the planning and executing, so you can enjoy all of the little moments throughout your very special day. You shouldn’t have to worry about the cake being delivered on time, or if the seating chart is correct. We handle all of those little details, so you don’t have to. Our amazing team of wedding planners is available to help you create your perfect wedding day and shield you from the inevitable stressors.
And did we mention, we absolutely love planning and coordinating weddings in Central Oregon! But hey, we might be a little biased! From our mountain peaks in Sisters, Oregon, to the high desert country in Powell Butte, Oregon, down to the winding rivers and lush countryside in Sunriver, Oregon, Central Oregon has something to offer every couple. Not to mention, the fun that can be had for you and your guests in Bend, Oregon! Imagine outdoor activities galore, plus the best coffee and beer you could ask for! Let us help you plan your once-in-a-lifetime, weekend getaway experience to Central Oregon for your wedding!
