{Danielle + Nate} Pronghorn Wedding Photography; Bend, Oregon

We are so excited to share this amazingly beautiful wedding on the blog from a couple that is just a ton of fun.  The wedding detail was wonderful in part because Danielle is a Portland, Oregon based wedding coordinator with Champagne Weddings & Events.  All the ladies were on their game as Danielle was able to step back and absorb all the beauty, being fully present on her wedding day at Pronghorn Club in Bend, Oregon.

Danielle + Nate, thank you so much for having us participate your special day – your heart and attention to detail was so special to document.  Even going so far as to set a seat at a table for us, (we’re so use to happily eating in the back room!), you guys were total gems.  Highlights of the day include when the geese participated in the ceremony (squealing their approval), chasing the sunset out to the caves and seeing your MAGNIFICENT dress for the first time – WOW.  Everything just went so smoothly.

This day wouldn’t have been possible without the incredible vendors (thanked and mentioned below) and your talented team you put together.  We are always humbled when we have the opportunity to work with others in our industry.

Congratulations on your house, next time we’re in Portland – we’re taking you out for a toast!

All the best,

B + W

One of the most beautiful and elegant brides – ever.  Just look at the dress!

Sweet moments in the sunset (that’s the new title of this one!)




Such elegance in the decor and detail 🙂

Danielle’s amazing dress…from an unusual angle and of course her good luck charm.




Beautiful broach from the family to add to her ‘something old’ and her bouquet.




Total fav…so airy 🙂

The moment of truth – The ‘First Look’



The flower girls stole the show (before the bride was revealed!) and were SO adorable.

The best…

Bridal party from the balcony!

No snow sadly but an incredible sunset and light instead…

Custom hot chocolate bar with homemade chai (YUM!!) with chocolate, cinnamon and marshmallows.










During the perfect moment of the ceremony, the geese gave their squawking seal of approval!












A beautiful touch, watching a slideshow of the bride growing up while they did their father/daughter dance 🙂


Dragging the shutter, showcasing all the FUN!
