Helen’s Last Fling Before the Ring!
As matron of honor, I planned a relaxing summer bachelorette party for my cousin Helen in beautiful Central Oregon. Of course I had to bring along my camera to document the fun!
We arrived on a Friday evening at the Seventh Mountain Resort and were greeted by the friendly staff. They let us know that we were the second bachelorette party to check in that day!
While a few bridesmaids kept Helen occupied with a cocktail to start the weekend, the others decorated her room! After surprising the bride with her fully decorated room, we headed out for a late night bite at Spork, a delicious Asian-Mexican fusion street food style restaurant.
Brunch and Pool Time
On Saturday morning we started out with a bachelorette brunch in our room with yogurt parfaits, pastries, fresh Oregon fruit,and lemonade mimosas! Then most of the day was spent visiting and relaxing at the pools. The Seventh Mountain Resort has three pools, including a saltwater pool and beautiful shaded cabañas.
Our Night Out In Downtown Bend
The bride, our guest of honor, is a foodie so we enjoyed a delicious night out at Citizen Bar and Kitchen, which offers an international cuisine with a Pacific Northwest twist. While in downtown Bend, we encountered three other bachelorette parties all wearing our dress code: bride in white, bridesmaids in black!
Farewell Brunch at The McKay Cottage
Before heading home the next morning we finished our weekend trip with an amazing brunch at McKay Cottage Restaurant. We especially loved their crepes!
I can't wait to celebrate Helen and Anthony's wedding this August! As her matron of honor, I will be in front of the lens instead of behind it. But she will be in great hands with the amazing Sierra Rose Photography!
We had to take some silly photos too of course!
I was able to set my camera settings and pass the camera to another bridesmaid to snap some photos of Helen and I!
