Ashley and Jonah were married at the new lodge at Black Butte Ranch!
I grew up spending a ton of time at “The Ranch”. I actually worked at the golf courses there for a summer during college! As such, I’m always extra excited for weddings at Black Butte. It’s such a special place and is truly a treat for me to return to. I also can’t imagine a better place for a destination wedding. 🙂
To add to the fun of ranch weddings 2023 brought the long awaited opening of the new lodge! I’m in love with this new space. It capitalizes on the gorgeous lake and mountain views while also including a climate controlled indoor space for guests. The climate control is especially nice for your florist (ie me, haha) so we can set flowers out early and not have to worry about heat, direct sun and/or wind damaging them prematurely. We ended up with 3 weddings at the new lodge in 2023 and they were all beautiful… and very different!
Ashley and Jonah chose to host their ceremony in front of a round moongate arch at the edge of the lake with the Three Sisters as their background. It was beautiful! Cocktail hour took place on the new, oversized patio. Dinner and dancing were held inside. White, green and touches of sky blue added a very fresh, summery vibe to the flowers and spaces. Peonies, ranunculus, sweet peas and bella donna added to the late Spring feel.
I can’t wait to be back at the ranch in 2024!
It takes a village and these two chose a great crew!
