When Will and Scott came to Bridal Bliss to assist with planning their wedding celebration, they had one goal in mind: to have as much fun as possible with their friends and family! With friends and family traveling to join them from around the country, they worked with KIRSTEN and selected BRASADA RANCH in Bend, Oregon to host their weekend-long party.  The couple filled their guests’ time with all kinds of fun activities for their guests from white-water rafting on the Deschutes River to golfing the Brasada golf course with it’s spectacular views.  As you will see from the photos (also featured in Portland Bride + Groom Magazine), Will and Scott love to laugh!

The ceremony was held on the lawn in the afternoon sunshine with the stunning natural backdrop of nine Cascade Peaks. Close friends provided the music – a string duo during the prelude, bagpipes for the processional, and “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” was sung during the ceremony. Guests were delighted with the inclusion of Will and Scott’s lovable canine companions, Zeus and Booker, as the ring bearers following after Will and Scott’s nephews who dropped doggie treats down the aisle rather than petals during the processional. Officiated by their dear friend who first introduced the couple, the ceremony was heartfelt and moving, highlighted with outbursts of laughter and a special personalized reading of Dr. Seuss’ “Oh The Places You’ll Go” by Will and Scott’s nieces. It was a very emotional day for everyone.

Cocktail hour followed immediately after the ceremony, and then guests were ushered to a dinner and dancing reception at the barn. Seating was arranged both indoors and outdoors creating the feel of a relaxed summer party. A stage was set on the lawn and Will and Scott surprised their guests with an 80’s cover band, RADICAL REVOLUTION, and the party turned into a summer concert! To keep the energy high at such high altitude an oxygen bar was offered for guests to enjoy, and the novelty was a hit! Meanwhile the s’mores bar, oxygen bar and fire pits drew guests who preferred to relax quietly and converse with old friends and family. Needless to say, all festivities continued late into the night. It was a fabulously fun filled ranch wedding weekend. Congratulations again to Will and Scott!

Ashley and Logan are from Alaska and when it came time to pick a wedding venue they wanted to have all their guests experience something that is not available in their hometown. Without hesitation they settled on BRASADA RANCH for their destination wedding and the setting could not have been more perfect!

Christine and Kevin were a fun loving couple. Their goal was to have guests experience a true getaway while celebrating the wedding. After deciding on BRASADA RANCH as the wedding venue, Christine and Kevin dove into planning with ELIZABETH. Every decision the two made was thoughtful and planned out. They truly wanted their guests to experience an unforgettable weekend. Our favorite part of the wedding was when guests checked into their hotel rooms and were welcomed with a pizza in the fridge and a growler of local beer. Now that is a way to kick off a wedding weekend! From bright, bold flowers to a perfect sunset the day was filled with fun and love.

We first met Sara back in 2006 when she was a bridesmaid at her sister’s wedding, which we coordinated at Skamania Lodge.  Sara wanted the same destination feel as her sister, but absolutely had to have a cool barn. We searched high and low from Washington down to Napa…and I think that you will agree that BRASADA RANCH‘s barn was in fact perfect! Take a peek at this cowboy chic event coordinated by ELIZABETH.  Also, keep your eyes open for a nice big feature in the next issue of PORTLAND BRIDE & GROOM MAGAZINE to learn more about this NYC couple and their fab event!
