Over the past year, we have had the opportunity to shoot a number of weddings at the Silcox Hut on Mt. Hood. The uniqueness of this venue seems to be a magnet for fabulous weddings that share a similar recipe of wonderful people, intimate ceremonies, and charming, thoughtful details. Molly & Tyler’s February wedding definitely fit the bill! Some of their stand-out details included Molly wearing her grandmother’s fur wrap (which came in very handy for those outdoor photos!), cowbells for the guests to ring for after their first-kiss (a nod to the bride’s ski-racing days), and delicious macaroons nestled in individual glass jars at each place setting.
The intimacy of Silcox Hut is palpable, with everyone present feeling like an honored guest. It is hard to describe the feeling of a small group of family and friends gathered cozily together on the side of a mountain to celebrate a couple’s love and commitment to each other. We hope these photos capture a bit of that essence. Molly & Tyler explained it well when, making a toast to their guests at the evening’s end, they stated that everyone present was there for a reason and that they looked forward those continued relationships as they begin this new chapter in their lives together. It is a sentiment shared at many weddings, yet feels particularly genuine in this spectacular setting.
