Abby and Abby's nuptials paid homage to the beauty of the Pacific Northwest
Tropical Hawaiian-Inspired Wedding Day at Tetherow Resort in Bend
Christi Johansen and Nik Loera wed with Hawaiian flair inspired by Christi’s childhood in Hawaii. The ceremony space at Tetherow Resort was lush with tropical floral arrangements, with huge fan palms, monstera, palmetto leaves, garden roses and orchids, as well as splashes of coral from the sunset peonies seen throughout the wedding. The group proceeded to cocktail hour on the patio, accompanied by music from The Kinky Brothers band. The lounge space featured romantic bistro lighting, a plush lounge area and passed appetizers from Tetherow. At the reception, guests sat at tables draped in seafoam velvet linen and accented with orange napkins; a tropical leaf wall enhanced the ambiance. After the couple’s grand entrance into the ballroom, they took part in a lovely toast at the Champagne tower and then a plated dinner catered by the resort. After the meal, the maid of honor and the best man gave touching toasts, which led to the cutting of a marbled two-tiered cake from Campbell Cakes. Some of the guests had a great time hamming it up with a photo booth from Stumptown Booth, as the couple snuck off for final sunset photos and a private first dance.
