Heather & Ryan’s wedding took place at one of our favorite outdoor venues in Oregon (which is saying a lot, given the number of outstanding options for outdoor weddings around here!) Bridal Veil Lakes is a rustic spot tucked away in the forest of the Columbia River Gorge, yet is it just minutes from downtown Portland. It’s a great place to showcase the natural beauty of our area to out-of-state friends and family, yet still be close to the city. Beauty was in full abundance for Ryan & Heather as forest fires nearby (but not too nearby!) created a fine haze in the sky & gorgeous light all day! We even had the chance to head over to Crown Point before the ceremony for photos with the bride & groom, and a great view of the Gorge.
