Weddings in the Pacific Northwest
Niki + Amit Indian Wedding - Sunriver Resort - Central Oregon
Niki and Amit are two people who literally glow with life. They are are something like a river that gives and receives and every time we find ourselves in their presence everything flows effortlessly. Their wedding was nothing short of a real journey. We were “all in” with them and even though we were in central Oregon at Sunriver Resort we felt like we went to India for 3 full days of celebration. The heat was intense. The colors were on fire. And the love shared between everyone was something we will never EVER forget
Galen + Carl Castaway Wedding - Portland - Pearl District
These two fabulous humans reached out to us while we were visiting family in California so we skyped. Although we always prefer to meet in person we immediately loved their smiles and laughter. Once we learned more about the day they wanted to create we could tell they wanted a relaxed but meaningful day full of love and friendship. They were not focused on decor or the details, they were focused on the moments. So that was what they were also looking for in the Photography. Candids of all the fun and celebration and the connection between.
Amy + Jon Ecotrust Wedding - Portland - Pearl District
When we first met Amy and John they invited us over to their beautiful SE Portland home. When we arrived we found ourselves immersed in a full display of wine and cheese options. They wanted to help decide which wines to choose for their wedding. Our conversations went late into the night and we learned that these two have a deep passion for telling and sharing stories. Curiosity and laughter are about the two best traits to have and John and Amy just keep going and going and going. And we loved it. They are real Portland people.
Sara + Wes Timberline Lodge Wedding - Silcox Hut - Winter Wedding
Sara and Wes style was very “Northwest” rustic and earthy. They both had never envisioned a traditional wedding, and when they toured Silcox Hut at the top of Mt Hood they knew right away that they wanted to get married there. Their aim was to bring together the people they love most for a unique night on Mt Hood all together. Since the Hut is so unique and incredible on it’s own the planned for decorations that fit in with the feel of the hut and let the venue speak for itself. They love a creative photography and wanted to bring in some artistic flair and vision to their wedding.
Cait + Erik Mt Hood Organic Farms Wedding - Hood River - Oregon
Cait and Erik both live in DC and they LOVE living in the city, walking/biking everywhere, trying new restaurants, and local markets, but also love getting outside the city for adventures, such as camping, hiking, and skiing. Portland and Mt. Hood specifically are special for them in so many ways.
When choosing a venue they wanted to incorporate Mt. Hood. They both work part time at a winery in Virginia and love the feel of being out in the country. The Mt Hood Organic Farms is by far one of the best venues in Oregon with it’s stunning real functioning farm/orchard feel and stunning views of Mt Hood. Mt Hood Organic farms was their perfect fit.
Megan + Aisaku Mt Hood Organic Farms Wedding - Hood River - Oregon
The sky and sun shined brightly in Hood River on this elegant summer day. If you sat still you heard the views sing a soft melody composed of wind in the trees and a river rushing by. The scenery was a highlight, but really nothing compared to the subtle yet lovingly expressive joy that poured from Megan all day or Aisaku’s giant smile and contagious laugh which leapt out of him almost uncontrollably.
Sachi + David Elopement - Washington Wedding - Private Residence
Sachi and David are about as relaxed as they are comical. Upon arriving to photograph their private wedding they were swimming and playing on the dock with their dog Nalu. Not just one jump but literally dozens of jumps over again and again like teenagers. The laughter and joy they reflect comes from a lifestyle freedom they share. The’ve also seen in the world through many travels and love to keep things simple. So beautiful.
Molly + Patrick MT HOOD ORGANIC FARMS WEDDING - HOOD RIVER - OREGON
Molly and Patrick are madly in love with life! They exude joy and depth in every sense of the word. The Mt. Hood Organic Farms couldn’t have been a better place for their gorgeous wedding! The food, the team, the view. Everything is perfect. Checkout some of the fresh food and gorgeous setting they have here. We included some extra photographs of the food itself, its absolutely amazing. If you’re looking for a great venue to get married in Oregon, you don’t need to look any further.
Jen + Brandon Exchange Ballroom Wedding - Urban Wedding - Portland
The best way to describe Jen and Brandon is fun, relaxed while possessing a distinctive radiant and warm presence. When they are not laughing or making us smile they report that their active personalities keep them biking, hiking, camping, listening to live music, exploring and traveling.
Jen’s sister hand made the beautiful wedding gown and we grinned from ear to ear watching the two of them discuss the process of making it. What a lovely gift to be able to give a loved one. Getting ready was simply fun at the Hotel Eastlund and flowed onto an open air patio first look on the roof top bar.
