Silver Falls Park | Melissa and Ethan’s Waterfall Wedding

Portland Oregon Wedding Photographer

With my love of waterfalls, Silver Falls Park had always been on my list of places to visit. Since I started photographing weddings four years ago, it has been harder and harder for me to head out and just cover landscapes. Luckily, I have amazing clients that allow me to capture both landscapes and weddings at the same time!

Silver Falls is also a special place for Melissa and Ethan as they run a yearly summer camp there. You can find out more about it here!

We met Melissa up at her cabin getting ready with all of her bridesmaids. While we were up there, Ethan drove down to South Falls and waiting for his bride.

We fought the crowds and had a fantastic first look with the falls in the background…and some quiet away from their ceremony site for the two.

The ceremony was in the vast Glen at the conference center. Ethan played his guitar while standing up at the altar and waiting for Melissa. When Melissa was walking down the aisle, they had their friends playing guitar and singing just for her.

Dinner and reception were in the conference center and the open dining area they have outside. They have a chef on site, and their food is fantastic!

Pies, dancing and having a great time with friends and family went on into the night as they had rented all the cabins in the area just for that reason.

I am so blessed to have met and worked with these two. They are currently packing and getting ready for their multi month honeymoon in South America. I can totally sneak away in their luggage….right?

And of course a huge thank you to my associate photographer Bill Burk for wonderful images, folklore tales, and all things photography talk whilst we drove the long way there and back!
