Gay Wedding Fashion in Oregon – Lesbian Wedding Style
The sweeping high desert surrounding Brasada Ranch outside Bend, Oregon provided a gorgeous backdrop for this free-spirited LGBT wedding fashion shoot.
Be swept off your feet in WToo’s Anastasia gown, which finds a sexy-sweet balance thanks to its dramatic open back, plunging neckline, delicate lace, and long sleeves. Pair it with Aesa’s bronze and pink pearl studs ($234, spartan-shop.com) for a wedding-day look no one will soon to forget.
Hand in Hand
Look sharp in slim-fitting suits you can wear again and again. On Gregory (left): Brooks Brothers Milano fit suit in sharkskin ($1,198), Milano fit gingham dress shirt ($98), and Kiriko pocket square ($28). On Cody (right): Brooks Brothers Milano fit suit in windowpane ($1,198), Milano fit dress shirt ($98), and Brooks Brothers textured wool tie in gold ($79.50). Shoes are models’ own.
From ball gown poof to pantsuit chic, there’s no reason brides can’t have it all.

Who says you need to be buttoned up on your big day? Slip into easygoing “I do day” duds, such as this John Varvatos shirt ($198 at Nordstrom) and Topman by Charlie Casely-Hayford skinny-fit check suit trousers ($130 at Nordstrom), paired with a vintage scarf and hat.
This fringed frock from Tadashi Shoji ($748) is the essence of country-wedding chic with its crocheted lace overlay and tiered skirt, while the lush bouquet from Summer Robbins Flowers creates a vibe that’s simultaneously loose and luxe—perfect for the luxurious yet relaxed high-desert aesthetic of Brasada Ranch. Complete the look with Madewell’s beaded disc bracelet ($24).
Strip off the suit jacket for an updated take on a classic groom’s look.

Embrace the details of your day with standout pieces that elevate your overall aesthetic. Left to right: Elizabeth Bower’s rose garden band ($245) adds a perfect polish to a cap-sleeved lace gown from Israel-based Flora design house ($4,700). Cody gets groomed up in a blue plaid sport coat, khaki trousers, and an orange pocket square from Brooks Brothers ($498, $89.50, and $45, respectively), while Paul Smith’s puzzle button-down shirt ($195 at Nordstrom) and Mara Carrizo Scalise’s raw cuff ring ($165) create a look that’s uniquely his own. Emily and Shivali steal a moment alone under a silk and lace veil from A La Robe ($605)—more on their looks below.
Create complementary—rather than competing—looks by shopping for gowns made from similar fabrics and jewelry crafted from the same metals. Here, the combination of silk and gold looks stunning on both brides. On Shivali (left): Gold drop earrings ($280 at Anthropologie) add the finishing touch to a crepe de chine gown from A La Robe ($2,420). On Emily (right): A trio of necklaces from Mara Carrizo Scalise ($110–$1,500) lends layers of drama to the deep-v neckline of a Houghton silk number ($2,750).
