Reagan and Jared. I met Reagan at a photo workshop in Bend a few years ago and we became friends. She and Jared modeled for me at Smith Rock State Park for an elopement inspiration shoot. She is one of the sweetest, warmest souls you’ll ever meet. I was so honored to be a part of their wedding at Dillon Falls and loved every moment of it! Jessica of Engaged Life planned the day and made everything run smoothly.
We started the day at their cute Airbnb cottage in the heart of downtown Bend, Oregon. The girls were drinking bubbly, giggling, and having the best time. The guys were outside sipping whiskey and being hilarious. Sarcasm was a common theme amongst these folks and they seriously had me cracking up allllll day. We had a blast.
Bend is one of my favorite towns in Central Oregon. It’s an active outdoor lifestyle crowd with the cutest outdoor eateries and endless local breweries. A beautiful river runs through town where kayakers and paddle boarders are sprinkled throughout. Campervans are everywhere. Pine trees, sagebrush, and dusty desert roads create the landscape with snowy mountains in the distance. I absolutely love Bend!
After getting ready photos and a first look at the house we were off to Dillon Falls trailhead. They had a perfect ceremony spot nestled in the trees on the edge of the river. The sun was shining, the fall leaves were glowing, and all of their guests were beaming with joy. The floral design created by Farmstead Flowers was absolutely gorgeous and perfectly paired with the natural outdoor elements in Central Oregon.
After adventuring around Dillon Falls we headed back to their reception with their family and friends for tacos from El Sancho, local beers, and cake!
Amazing vendors that helped create the magic for this wedding:
