Small Wedding // Portland Elopement

April 2, 2015

Living in the Pacific Northwest, I’m constantly reminded of how beautiful nature can be. Christina and Geoff’s Portland elopement encompassed everything I love about this area. This time of year is near the end of the “wet” season where all the plant life is wonderfully lush. The moss, oh my god the moss, is so vibrant with color and so thick it feels like walking on a sponge layered ground. The forecast called for 100% rain but what we got was one of the most magical days I’d experienced since living here. They had their ceremony in the ruins of an old stone house sweetly tucked away in the woods. Following we explored around the Columbia Gorge  and ended at the ever amazing Wachlella Falls. I’m pretty dang excited to shoot more of these small weddings this year. Also you can head to Green Wedding Shoes to see their sweet feature.
