Portland Oregon Wedding
Claudia and Reese held their ceremony at Cathedral Park in Portland, Oregon. The next day we headed out for an adventure day to visit 4 different waterfalls.
Officiant: Rooted and Wild
Flowers: Solabee Flowers
The Heathman Hotel
After Claudia and Resee were both dressed we headed to the Rose Garden for a first look and some beautiful portraits. It was late April and the Flowers were in full bloom.
Next, we headed to Cathedral Park to meet up with their family for their ceremony. Ceremonies are held under the St. John’s Bridge between the beautiful concrete columns. It’s such an amazing and timeless location.
Emily from Rooted and Wild PDX officiated their ceremony.
Two days later we met up in the Gorge for some waterfall portraits. We started at Latourell Falls. These falls are a simple 3-minute walk from the parking lot and just stunning for portraits.
Next, we made a quick stop at Multnomah Falls. Luckily it wasn’t too busy and we were able to get a few photos.
Our third stop was Wahclella falls where we hiked in about 20 minutes. This waterfall has changed quite a bit due to a forest fire two years ago. Since the fire, several trees have fallen and piled up at the viewpoint. It made for an amazing spot for portraits.
Since we started so early it was time for a lunch break so we stopped at Ferment Brewing Company. This is one of my favorite restaurants in Hood River. The architecture alone is amazing, and their beer and food are phenomenal. This is my go-to when in town.
After lunch, we headed to Tamanawas Falls for our final hike. This is one of the least crowded of the falls and is located east of mount hood. This hike is about 3.5 miles round trip and is definitely worth the trip.
