Beautiful wedding venues in Bend are popping up all the time. The rugged beauty of the high desert of central Oregon is becoming more and more popular as a backdrop for Elopements and weddings. Just over the Cascade Mountain Range from Portland, they world opens up into the vast, sunny, sage-covered valley of Sisters, Madras, and Bend. I’ve listed a few of my favorite wedding venues in the Bend area (along with some cute airbnbs!) for any couple planning an Oregon desert wedding.

With a gorgeous high desert climate, you’ll likely be drenched in sunlight and have sweeping mountain views for miles. They have both indoor and outdoor settings.

Loloma Lodge is a wooded wonderland all year round, but it really shines in Autumn when every inch of the venue is covered in red and gold foliage.
