Aspen Hall Wedding | Allie & Garrett


My favorite thing about an Aspen Hall is that every wedding is completely different. It’s truly a blank canvas. Allie & Garrett both work for the City of Bend so it makes sense they would pick one of the park districts wedding venues. They met at work and even had one of their former bosses officiate the ceremony- a truly Bend wedding.

Aspen Hall takes some sweat to make your vision come to life and I highly recommend having a planner to take some of the stress away. Chelsea from Radiant Event Co is not only highly detailed and great at her job, she’s laid back and fun to spend the day with. I also highly recommend hiring a crew to clean up – the last thing you want to be concerned about at 9pm on your wedding is if your guests will breakdown the site and sweep up.

These two were clearly just so incredibly happy. Throughout the day I would see Garrett – a rather serious fellow – look at Allie with just pure joy on his face. They continued their adventure by building a home in Bend with Garrett managing it.

Garrett is from Vermont and wanted to bring elements of Vermont into his wedding with a maple syrup favors and a late night poutine bar.

Couples are often worried that there will be fisherman/park people in the background if you get married at Aspen Hall. Generally, people will scaddadle once they see a wedding starting but you may have to ask a few to leave. For this wedding I asked a few fisherman (in some neon clothing) if they could move for the ceremony.

The lighting that Illuminate your Night truly made the atmosphere at Aspen Hall. Allie & Garrett opted to have their dance floor outside (which I highly recommend) illuminated with string lights and lanterns.

Shevlin Park Sunset Photos

I convinced them to quickly go up to the Shevlin ridge at sunset (which they were on the fence about leaving their party) for truly some of the most amazing photos of the day. In less than 5 minutes we were able to get some truly epic photos. Generally, sunset photos are always worth quickly leaving and a quick un-bustle. It also gives you a quick moment to spend some time just the two of you!
