A current wedding trend at Pronghorn Resort is the “first look” or reveal. Many brides and grooms are choosing to break with tradition and enjoy a wedding first look before their ceremony. A few hours before the ceremony, the bride and groom meet at a pre-arranged location with their wedding photographer. The surprise and intimacy of your first look wedding photos will make them some of your favorite emotion-filled memories of the day.

The landscape at Pronghorn Resort in beautiful Bend, Oregon offers many incredible options for your wedding first look. Our two award-winning golf courses have outstanding views of the Cascade Mountains, ghost trees, winding streams and romantic bridges. If you prefer an indoor first look, the Clubhhouse offers a castle-like, fairytale feel. Stephanie and Matt chose to have their wedding first look at one of the most unique golf holes in the world: the eighth hole of our Fazio Championship Golf Course. Rimmed by a 45-foot canyon and exposed lava tube below, this location was perfect for the adventurous couple. Byron Roe Photography captured their series of amazing first look wedding photos this September at Pronghorn Resort.

Matt waits with excitement above the lava tube on the eighth hole of our Fazio Championship Golf Course. Where is his beautiful bride?

Stephanie, in her gorgeous wedding gown, walks across the green to where Matt is waiting.

The landscape of this golf hole is incredible and very reflective of Central Oregon. It was the perfect representation of this couple’s adventurous spirit.

Matt is just moments away from getting his first look at his beautiful bride!

And there she is. This moment of a wedding first look is always the most exciting; just before the groom turns around.

A few moments together in an epic landscape.

Hand in hand, Matt and Stephanie walk down to the lava tube together.

But first, they share quiet moments of reflection. This special place is very peaceful and pristine. You will feel like you are the only two people in the world.

The entrance to the lava tube is always magical, but on your wedding day? There is nothing like this hand-held walk.
