When it comes to your wedding, you shouldn’t have to compromise on anything. Choosing a wedding venue can often be one of the hardest parts of the planning process, because it’s one of the biggest decisions—the place that will be the backdrop for your biggest day, a million photos and a lifetime of memories.

Sometimes you find the perfect space for the ceremony but not the reception. Maybe the beautiful setting is too small for your party, or the space is one-dimensional and your entourage needs more adventure. Pronghorn, just outside of Bend, has an elegant solution. This picturesque destination-style wedding venue offers a variety of options and quality service to help you create the ultimate experience for your celebration.

With the addition of its newly developed Event Island, Pronghorn has the most stunning wedding venue in Central Oregon, on a lake between the first and eighteenth holes of the resort’s Tom Fazio Golf Course. The lush green lawn is surrounded by perennial flowers and natural vegetation, including high desert junipers, aspens and sagebrush. The greenery along the edge of the island provides privacy, but without detracting from the 360-degree view of Mt. Bachelor, Three Sisters and Broken Top. Ducks swim in the lake, and the occasional white swan graces the lake with her presence. An arched stone land bridge connects the island to the property, offering a dramatic vantage point for the bride’s grand entrance to its 7,000 square feet.

“We knew we had a great opportunity to create something special with the Event Island,” says Spencer Schaub, Pronghorn’s general manager. “We constantly strive to provide our guests with an authentic and unique venue on which to build memories of their wedding at Pronghorn.”
The Event Island is one of five outdoor event spaces, and three dining outlets with full-service catering that offer a variety of dining options and exquisite fare. The elegantly inviting clubhouse has locker rooms for wedding party prep, as well as a spa service for bridal parties.
Whether the wedding party is from Central Oregon or farther afield, chances are that some guests will come from out of town. Pronghorn is conveniently located near a small private airport as well as Roberts Field (Redmond/Bend Airport). The resort also has 48 residential-style lodging units on site—and soon a 105-room luxury hotel—making it a premier and accessible destination for families and out-of-towners.
Pronghorn’s accommodations as a wedding venue only skim the surface of its capabilities and services. The resort has two top-rated golf courses, a gated residential community, a 55,000-square-foot clubhouse, pools and hot tubs, basketball and tennis courts, and a spa and fitness center.
