R & L kicked off our summer season with a quintessential Mount Hood Organic Farms wedding on a stunning (albeit hot!) day in June. Mt. Hood Organic Farms, or MHOF, is undoubtedly one of the BEST places to tie the knot with our beloved Mount Hood in the background. It’s hard to even say it’s “in the background” because when you’re there, it’s really more like smack dab in front of your face. The photos only scratch the surface of this stunning and breathtaking venue.
It was the perfect setting for R & L’s families who, most of them, had never been to Oregon before. This created a destination wedding atmosphere for this fun and lively group. After sealing their vows, R &L took part in some totally normal wedding activities…like smashing a wedding cake shaped pinata. ;) Followed by eating a delicious dinner prepared by the talented crew of MHOF, listening to heartfelt toasts and taking in their first dance surrounded by close friends and family. A dynamic duo emerged from the wedding and that was most definitely R & L’s moms- who were both hilarious and adorable on the dance floor. As the sun set on Mt. Hood, we took some final portraits of the couple and couldn’t help but reflect on how lucky we are to work with such fun couples and in such incredibly gorgeous places. It’s not a bad job, and one we’re very thankful that R & L invited us to be a part of!
R & L requested privacy for this post so while we can only use their initials to describe them, we hope you all enjoy a few of our favorites from their day. And with the arrival of our daughter only three short weeks prior, Daniel photographed this wedding with the assistance of the lovely and talented Britney Gardner and you’ll see a few of her images above in the blog post.
