Tara and Kam Brant married at Brasada Ranch in Bend with a wedding day that melded personal style with timeless elements. The duo opted to host their wedding in Brasada, where many of Tara's family members live, and chose to maximize their guest list with a traditional large event that brought all their loved ones to Oregon to celebrate. The couple both work in very serious government positions, and shaping their wedding into an event that allowed them to let loose and have fun was key. Tara set the tone for a fashionable day with her gorgeous gown, which featured a strapless sleek bodice and a gorgeous textured skirt. Her interpretation of bridal style was a showcase of her personal taste that served as a focal point for the day, perfectly complimented by Kam's dapper blue suit. Hints of rust from the bridal party added another element of color that enhanced the day's ambience. 

Florals were another detail from Kam and Tara's big day that explored their unique style. Flowers by Summer Robbins were designed to incorporate branches and structured pieces alongside classic wedding flora, a motif that kept things feeling cohesive from Tara's bouquet to reception centerpieces. Just a hint of rustic influence was paired with hues of white and coral throughout ceremony and reception design which integrated the backdrop of Brasada Ranch into the day as a design detail of its own. Tablescapes were sleekly decorated and accented with wooden details and colored glassware for a modern rustic look. A gorgeous seating chart was also a central décor piece, highlighting cities of importance to the couple with gorgeous hand-drawn signage serving as corresponding table markers. A sweetheart table transformed a lush hedge wall into a floral frame for our couple, complete with a cursive sign reading "The Brants." After a lively day of festivities, our newlyweds drove off into the evening in a gorgeous Corvette decorated with letters spelling out "Foreva Eva" to start their married life.
