Brasada Ranch Wedding, Bend OR | Caitlin + Joe

We had the absolute pleasure of designing flowers for Caitlin and Joe’s high desert wedding at Brasada Ranch. We used this couple’s love for architecture, high desert textures and autumn tones as floral inspiration to create a stunning and magical Brasada Ranch wedding. Nestled between rabbitbrush bushes and the jagged rock landscape, these vibrant yet soft florals both enhanced and were at home in their surroundings.

Caitlin and Joe were so thoughtful and intentional in the decisions they made for their wedding, even designing and building their own ceremony arbor! They came to us inspired by the textures and colors of the high desert as a source of material inspiration and physical backdrop, choosing Brasada Ranch as their wedding venue. Using their inspiration, we created colorful and textural florals that beautifully captured the spirit of the high desert and the transition of the seasons from late summer to early autumn. A season still full of rich color and depth, combined with dried botanicals and textural elements so often found in Bend and the surrounding Oregon high desert - dahlias, coneflower, japanese anemones, blue fescue grass, heuchera, chocolate cosmos, dried pods, lisianthus and yellow tomatoes on the vine.

The landscape of Bend and the surrounding Oregon high desert make for a seriously stunning wedding backdrop. Located just outside of Bend, Brasada Ranch has breathtaking 360 degree views of the high desert mountains it's nestled between. With multiple ceremony sites to choose from and private cabins for your wedding party and guests to spend the weekend, it makes for an easy, beautiful and relaxing experience.
