I was lucky enough to have been invited on this journey on the other side of the United States with Dan and Alicia. What made it even more special was that, they not only invited me but my husband and baby boy as well. Oregon was simply beautiful and welcoming! D + A invited their family and some close friends to join them as they tied the know in the Columbia River Gorge area! To start their day they both got ready before the sun came up in the beautiful family home they rented. It was tucked away in the middle of a pear orchard surrounded by views of Mt. Hood and Mt. Adams, talk about being in the middle of the most beautiful place! They then met each other, plus their family and friends at the Cascade Locks. As the sun came up and the fog and mist lifted off the mountains they read their vows and said "I do" for forever. It was breathtaking! Just as we were finishing up their portraits it started to sprinkle so we joined their family at Bridgeside for brunch, YUM! To complete there portraits we explored two nearby waterfalls and took in all that there was to offer. They were magical and so incredible in person. It was a perfect PNW day... 10/10 recommend!
