From inside the new 3,000-square-foot event space, the mountains are just as stunning, due to the panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows. While at Black Butte Ranch, you can explore all the 1,800-acre property has to offer, including indoor and outdoor pools, fitness centers, golf courses, tennis and pickleball courts, lake activities and spa. The ranch is a place people come to gather and to celebrate, and weddings are made easy thanks to the included professional event staff, bartenders, reception tables and chairs, ceremony chairs, linens, glassware, flatware, heaters and umbrellas.

Brasada Ranch, Powell Butte

A luxury resort, Brasada Ranch is situated just outside of Bend on the expansive Powell Butte. The 1,800-acre high desert ranch offers endless views of the scenic Cascade Mountains from each of its four venue sites. Deemed the most versatile and customizable of the lot, The Barn was designed to echo an idyllic western outpost, featuring a rustic, modernized interior flowing out to a large lawn overlooking the Trestle Bridge and Mountain Range. The largest ceremony venue, the Range Lawn, features an infinity lawn and multiple fire pits, and is just a short walk from The Barn. For mid-sized ceremonies at water’s edge, the Trestle Pond is an ideal choice. Just above sits the historic Trestle Bridge, which features reclaimed wood from the original aqueduct. The smallest of the venues, the bridge is best suited for intimate receptions or cocktail hours (and wedding photos!). The Cascade Pool offers a perfect place to lounge or a unique rehearsal dinner and welcome party location. Brasada Ranch also offers its own culinary team for creating seasonal, organic custom menus using the bounty of local producers and artisans.
