When it comes to selecting the location of your upcoming wedding, Oregon deserves to be at the very top of the list. This stunning state offers jaw-dropping mountain views that make for some of the most amazing wedding photos of all time. The towering mountain range is truly a sight to be seen and the peaks and valleys offer dynamic backgrounds for your photos. As a Bend wedding photographer, I can safely say that Oregon wedding venues are some of the most incredible spots I have seen to date. If you’re in search of an iconic mountain wedding venue, any of the following can provide you with exactly what you’ve been searching for.
Mt. Hood Ski Bowl
Starting off with a bang, Mt. Hood Ski Bowl, pictured below, is a venue rich in history and centrally located at the base of the mountain. If you’ve been dreaming of an intimate, cozy, fire-lit reception, this is the spot for you. Guests will be taken to the top of the mountain via ski lift, creating an exclusive and exciting experience for all. If a winter wedding isn’t your style, not to worry, they offer summer and spring weddings as well so you can snatch up this dreamy spot year round.
If you can picture yourself exchanging vows with a sweeping view of the mountain range in the background, Brasada Ranch could be the perfect location for your wedding day. Located at a lower elevation than Mt. Hood Ski Bowl, Brasada Ranch can accommodate both indoor and outdoor weddings year round. The rustic vibe of the venue combined with the panoramic mountain views makes for a truly timeless experience.
Exceptionally close to downtown Bend, Tetherow is the definition of rustic luxury. Nestled at the base of the mountain, this venue offers an organic feel that can easily accommodate both intimate and large-scale weddings. This venue is truly a dream backdrop for a Bend wedding photographer. Ultimately, this spot is perfect for the more modern bride that enjoys glimpses of classic mountain aesthetics with an upscale vibe.
Black Butte Ranch
The natural beauty found at Black Butte Ranch is unparalleled and provides some of the most incredible photo locations in the state of Oregon. During the spring and summer seasons, the mountain range is backlit by glowing purples and pinks as the sun drops down behind them. A dusting of snow highlights the gorgeous peaks as you celebrate under the setting sun with your loved ones. This venue is beautifully designed for couples that want to experience the uniqueness of Oregon’s outdoors.
Ranch at the Canyons
If spectacular summit views are your thing, the Ranch at the Canyons might just be the perfect match for your upcoming wedding. This unique venue melds together a chic mountain vibe with a tuscan-inspired ranch setting that makes for one of the most versatile and stunning venues I have ever seen. On top of that, they have on-premise lodging that makes for the most intimate and seamless wedding experience possible.
