Juniper Preserve Weddings
Being a wedding photographer in Bend, Oregon, you get pretty excited when one of your brides wants to have her wedding at Juniper Preserve. Juniper Preserve has some of the most amazing backdrops around for any event. From their mountain views to their enormous caves, I can never take enough photos to capture it all. With bridal parties set against such stunning views, you will surely walk away with breathtaking photos to cherish. Your guests will be treated to the posh surroundings as they watch you tie the knot.
On top of that, Juniper Preserve event spaces and accommodations offer modern architecture enhanced by classy textures that reflect the nature surrounding it. Be tucked away in the forest of the Westside of Bend, OR and enjoy mountain views while you toast to your future together. As you consider choosing me as your Bend, Oregon photographer, I recommend checking out Juniper Preserve Weddings and all that they have to offer. Here are some of the reasons it’s one of my favorite venues in Central Oregon.
What makes Juniper Preserve beautifully unique?
The Juniper Lodge has nearly 90 guest rooms and suites situated on the property ready to host you and your loved ones for your special day. Make it a destination or a fancy getaway. You’ll love the private outdoor spaces to take in the views. Generous windows in Juniper Lodge allow you to connect with nature without ruggedness required. Which for some is the best of both worlds. You truly get the views without the trek. Add a fine wine in hand while you take it in and everybody is happy.
Natural Lighting for the Win
Let’s talk about the lighting. As a photographer out of Bend, Oregon I am stoked to photograph Juniper Preserve Weddings because of all of the natural light in their spaces. The Lodge also has a great lounge perfect for catching up with guests arriving from out of town or celebrating with your wedding party amidst the festivities. Cheers with signature cocktails and delicious food on the side.
The Lap of Luxury
Providing a lavish spot for your guests to stay will make your wedding a memorable experience all around. What fun to treat your guests to a getaway with friends for your Big Day. Throughout the Juniper Lodge you’ll find touches of local flavor reflecting special elements that make Central Oregon so special.

You and your guests will be met with spaces to gather that are artistically curated and thoughtfully designed. Get all dressed up and celebrate in a venue that feels worthy of the Day it hosts. You’ll love the refreshed look and what it adds to the elements of your wedding.

Get a head-start on your Honeymoon and treat your guests to a trip they’ll be excited to come on. Not only will your friends and family have an excuse to come to beautiful Bend, OR to celebrate you, but there’s more!
Schedule a tee time at Pronghorn Club Golf, a world renown golf course. Get a little healthy competition as you reconnect with your friends and family around your wedding.

Juniper Preserve Cave Ceremony
When I photograph weddings in Bend, Oregon, weddings at Juniper Preserve’ caves are the best. If you are looking for a super unique ceremony location, Juniper Preserve holds smaller ceremonies and their amazing caves. The setting of the rough and textured caves in contrast to the tenderness of tying the knot is brilliant and breathtaking. Check out these stunning shots!
