If the idea of a white wedding feels a bit uninspired, it may be time to go retro and pay homage to a funkier era. When the Campfire Hotel opened in Bend, designers at The Indigo Bride lit up with inspiration for a 1970s-style wedding. With the hotel’s palette of vintage oranges and yellows, only a groovy take on a modern design would do. The pool area served as the ceremony site, where an altar of sunset-hued balloons and mismatched rugs lining the aisle turned up the hippie vibe. Hand-painted metallic leaves added a modern element for the “I dos.” Inside at the hotel’s cantina, the venue for the reception, The Posie Shoppe introduced tropical elements to the floral arrangements. Striking bird-of paradise, shiny pink anthurium and bright roses served as stunning contrast to the jade glassware and lime-green taper candles, with orange metal chairs tying the entire tablescape together. Vinyl 45-rpm records were reimagined as candleholders, adding a touch of campiness to the scene. Alyson of Wild Folk Flower Apothecary crafted botanical cocktails served in ’70s-style green glasses, which complemented the fondue for two served from a custom-painted caquelon. “We believe that just because a wedding is small does not mean the details have to be overlooked,” says The Indigo Bride’s Alisha Reicks-Sturgill. “In fact, having an intimate wedding means you can let your creativity go wild. And you can soak in every moment of your stress-free wedding celebration.”
