This couple is in love with Oregon, and they decided to elope here and have a micro wedding with only 5 guests

Between the towering mountain backdrop and the traditional Hindu influences, this breathtaking Smith Rock State Park Oregon micro wedding stole our hearts. Nandita and Ryan are anything but traditional and they wanted a day that celebrated their uniqueness and love for Bend, Oregon.

With the help of planner Bridal Bliss, the couple brought to life their dream elopement ceremony that preserved some elements of their originally envisioned day. Trading their large traditional ceremony for a mountaintop micro wedding with only seven guests—Nandita and Ryan took full advantage of the endless wedding planning possibilities that come with a smaller wedding. From beginning to end, this culture infused micro wedding was full of cherished moments that celebrated these audacious explorers.

Bend’s high desert terrain is dramatic and colorful, and the natural landscape is so beautiful that it doesn’t need a lot of accessorizing. Summer Robbins Flowers, dressed the already breathtaking Smith Rock State Park ceremony space with bright colored floral arrangements that complement the muted mountain backdrop—a perfect way to incorporate traditional Hindu elements. As there were only 5 guests, the couple was able to do some things they otherwise couldn’t have, like having the ceremony at a state park or going big on florals and fancy wine, since costs were cut in so many other places. It also meant they didn’t have to stick to a rigid schedule on the day-of.
