So, as it turns out, TLC had it all wrong. You definitely should go chasing waterfalls! Especially at the breathtaking wooded wonderland that is the Silver Falls Lodge.
This day was so gloriously beautiful from start to finish. We couldn’t have asked for better weather in May in Oregon. And being the adventure-loving couple that they are, Rio and Jon were so up for a mid-wedding day hike down to the stunning waterfalls in the middle of the forest to have some of their portraits done. Yup, hiked down in dress, shoes and all! I think one of the best parts was all the attention they got along the way! Against the roar of the falls you could hear cheers that echoed off the rocky walls as people congratulated them from up above while Jon and Rio twirled around in the windy mist of the water that blew over them.
Rio’s dress was simply to die for! Just like a princess, of course we HAD TO make her twirl and spin in this epic background. The movement, emotion, and love between these two beautiful humans just melted me!
Everything about this day had me swooning, from the creative and breathtaking floral arrangements put together by Bridge City Blooms, to the decadently sweet cake and desserts created by Jaciva’s, down to the planning and coordinating of this entire event by the extremely talented Stephani Delatte with Whitney Werts & Co.
One of the sweetest moments of the day was when their wedding party surrounded them on the dance floor with sparklers as they shared their first dance as husband and wife. This stunning couple couldn’t have picked a more perfect location or day to make their everlasting vows to each other or have better friends or family to share it with. I wish them so much happiness, so much laughter, and so many adventures together. And thanks to this amazing thing I do that I call so much more than a job, I am so blessed to now call them friends and hope to remain in their lives as their family grows. I am ever so thankful for what I do and the relationships it brings.
