The Columbia Gorge is often what people think of when they imagine Oregon. Sweeping vistas of rolling hills, mountains and valleys that dip into a vast river. Top it off with a setting that includes the grand Mt. Hood behind you? Boom! Dream wedding location. In fact, Columbia Gorge weddings have become so popular recently that most of our couples getting married there aren’t even from Portland! Rather, it’s the new destination wedding site. It’s mountains over beach, green trees over sand, rivers over oceans. We happen to agree with these couples that you can save the beach for your honeymoon and first tie the knot in arguably the most beautiful region of the United States. The Pacific Northwest (#pnwonderland, #pnwwedding, #upperleftisbest) is popular for good reason. We have been to the Columbia Gorge for weddings more in the last two years than ever before and we hope the trend never stops! Check out weddings on our blog from Skamania Lodge, Mt. Hood Organic Farms, Mt. Hood Bed & Breakfast and the Gorge Discovery Center to name a few.
Keith & Hannah
Hannah and Keith are equal parts hilarious, sensitive, sexy and so much fun. We trekked all over Government Cove, hitting up every inch of this charming little island for their engagement photos.
Kyle & Tiffany
We love a venue with history. The Sunshine Mill Winery has the history, the charm, the beauty and the unique character that made us extra excited to photograph all the possibilities there. We are so thankful to this incredibly kind and amazing couple, Kyle and Tiffany, for throwing the most perfect Sunshine Mill Winery wedding one could ask for.
Sami & Aidan
Mt. Hood Organic Farms weddings in the summer….is there anything better? If you have yet to attend a wedding at this iconic Columbia Gorge wedding venue, then we urge you to quickly encourage your sister, brother or best friend to get married there. Luckily for us, we scored this amazing couple…Sami and Aidan!
Katrin & Bryan
Katrin and Bryan’s Mt. Hood Organic Farms wedding was one of sheer beauty. The moment the couple arrived on the charming red Double Decker Bus PDX led us to believe that this would be one of the most endearing and romantic weddings of our summer.
Ashley & Pete
Ashley and Pete hail from Massachusetts but they wanted a true elopement. A romantic, run away together and tie-the-knot kind of affair.
Natalie & Hai
If you don’t know Gorge Crest Vineyards, it is an amazing Oregon wedding venue that is nestled above the Columbia Gorge. Sweeping gorge views abound, Mt. Hood stares you smack in the face from every angle and the venue’s private grape vines combined with wildflower gardens offer you that classic Oregon winery feeling.
