Things to Consider


Sisters, Oregon is a small, artsy town that is about thirty minutes from the well-known travel destination of Bend. Bend is home to the highest per capita concentration of microbreweries, epic hiking trails, horse trails, world-class mountain biking and skiing. Food trucks, art galleries and wineries abound as well.

The closest airport is Redmond (RDM), about 25 minutes away. Laura’s parents live in this town.

Larger airports include Portland (PDX), about three hours or Eugene (EUG), about two hours.


There are plenty of lodging options, from bougie to budget:

Sisters, OR

  • On site: FivePine Lodge, please call 541-549-5900 and mention Moody/Kang
  • A mile away: Best Western Ponderosa, please call 800-528-1902 and mention Dean and Laura’s Wedding

Bend, OR (a thirty minute drive)

  • So many options! Check online or on AirBNB for some cool experiences.


The ceremony is in a church, so shirts and shoes are appreciated! But otherwise, wear what makes you comfortable.


Our reception is an unstructured one. FivePine Lodge is about half a mile from the church, and we’ll head over as soon as the ceremony finishes. There’s plenty of parking and it’s also a beautiful walk.

Please come enjoy dinner, beer, wine, drinks alcoholic and non, and even a snazzy cake. Children of all ages are welcome throughout.


Forget what your mama taught you and please come empty handed. Really! No gifts, please.
