Columbia Gorge Hotel Wedding | Portland Wedding Photographer | Jen & Dave
Jen & Dave are the absolute essence of love itself. Their love for each other absolutely radiates, and is felt by all who know them. After getting to know them on their Engagement session, I knew that their wedding would be nothing short of fabulous. And I was right. The Columbia Gorge Hotel is exquisite. The hotel was built in the early 1900′s and quickly became an international destination with guests like the Roosevelt’s and Valentino as some of it’s guests. And after being there I can definitely see why. The hotel is set on a cliff 100 ft above the Gorge with a waterfall literally coming out from underneath it’s grounds. Simply magical.
On their wedding day, Jen & Dave welcomed us in with such warm smiles and I instantly felt at home with them and their family. I love how their personalities were brought out in all of the beautiful details of the day. We were even gifted a CD of Jen & Dave’s favorite songs for our car ride home. Which by the way, we totally rocked out to
Thanks you guys for allowing us to celebrate with you. You both sincerely touched my heart.
This was kinda a hard angle to get, but I just had to figure out a way to show you guys how fabulous the Columbia Gorge Hotel truly was.
This is the ceremony area overlooking the Gorge...Washington State is across the river.
I love getting detail shots that incorporate something from the venue itself. I'm always on a search for unique flowers, textures and backgrounds.
A view of this Gorgeous vintage hotel from their amazing garden area.
Have I mentioned I absolutely LOVE vintage furniture!
I absolutely LOVE Jen's flower choice. Simple bouquets are just gorgeous!
Lovin' the personalized water bottles...it's so fun when couples add their own flare
and of course the fabulous Avayah Engagement Signature book caught in the act...
Love this shot of Dave kickin' back right before his "First Look"
What an amazing "First Look". Jen's face says so much.
I have to admit, I was totally jealous of Isaac’s angle when I saw this shot.
Another fabulous shot by my love.
The architecture at the Columbia Gorge Villas (right next to the Columbia Gorge Hotel) is fabulous. Reminded me of being in Scottsdale. Mmmmmm..
so precious. Look at Dave's face. Totally in awe of her.
These guys were so much fun....And I have to admit. I LOVE these gates.
Seriously these dresses were fab. I so wanted one in my size.
The Columbia Gorge Hotel was absolutely breathtaking. We seriously could've taken photos for hours and had not one of them look the same. So amazing.
The Hotel Staff had placed these signs all around the property since it's a very popular sightseeing location. So thoughtful.
