Why you should love your photographer...

On your wedding day you will be spending about 85-90% of your entire day with your photographer by your side. They will be guiding you through every step of the day! You want someone there you trust, who is organized, and who you can have fun with!

When you love your photographer and get along with them really well you can let your guard down around them. You can crack silly jokes and laugh and have fun! In doing so, you end up with not only amazing and genuine photos, but you'll have an even better experience!

When you've taken the time to get to know the person photographing you, they will know and understand your specific needs and wants. They will know the best way to capture you and bring out your best smiles, laughs, and natural emotions. Plus who doesn't love making new friends?!

Featured Friday: The Griffin House

July 31, 2020

Have you ever dreamed of expressing your vows up on the cliffs with the wind in your hair and the gorgeous Columbia River as your backdrop? Then you do not want to miss seeing this venue! The Griffin House, located in Hood River, is a one of a kind venue. They that will cater to your unique design ideas and style! I was truly blown away from the moment I stepped foot on this property. It wasn’t just by the breathtaking scenery that envelops you! Marlowe and Angie were amazing and walked me through the entire space, showing me all of the ways they cater and serve their couples. They are so down-to-earth, easy-going, and fun-loving people. They are truly dedicated to help their couples with the planning, designing, and style of the whole day!

Catered to your style!

One of the great things about the Griffin House is that you can use their grounds for any size or style of wedding! You can lay out your day how you choose! You don’t have to be conformed to just one ceremony or reception space. Whether you are having a smaller, more intimate ceremony and reception, an elopement, or a larger wedding of up to 200 guests. This space has it all! You can even bring in a fleet of food trucks for your reception! And it’s happened! How cool is that?! These fabulous ladies will see to it that you have the wedding of your dreams with a view to die for!

The Bridal Suite and Vintage Man Cave

There is a beautiful, natural light bridal suite upstairs for getting ready. A vintage man cave is on the lower floor for the guys. It comes complete with a bar and access to the backyard patio. The guys have a space they can hang out, have a drink, and play some yard games as the girls beautify themselves! I think one of my favorite parts of the larger reception area is the grassy staircase. It looks as if it appears right out of the lawn to make for a grand and elegant, yet magical entrance to your reception! This venue has hands-down, one of the most jaw-dropping backdrops I’ve ever seen! You’ll have a killer team on your side to help you plan out your special day. If you don’t mind wind, you’ll love the Griffin House!
