Gorgeous Silcox Hut Wedding Ceremony

Robyn + Trevor Timberline Lodge - Silcox Hut Wedding - Mt Hood

Robyn and Trevor are as unique as they come. Robyn is a firefighter, teaches aerial ski jumping, loves snowboarding, camping, wine tasting, traveling Thailand, Mexico, mountains and building forts! Trying to describe Trevor is almost impossible, let’s just put it this way he led Robyn on a wild goose chase on his motorbike and pretended something was wrong with the bike. He stopped the bike, had her try to solve the problem with studying the bike engine, big distraction, then as she turned around he proposed to her on the spot. We got to see this first hand from this hidden shakey camera that captured this moment in the most unusual spot. The camera turned up to the sky as we could hear them laughing and crying together as she said “yes!” Nice job Trevor!
