Garden Summer Wedding on the Willamette River in Oregon

March 21, 2022

This Columbia River Gorge Wedding on the Willamette River was the sweetest day celebrating Lindsey and Brian’s love.

Garden Summer Wedding on the Willamette River

Lindsey wanted her day to feel like Tuscany and it definitely felt like a garden party at this venue. They held their wedding at a private estate along the Willamette River in the summer and it turned out to be the prettiest day. The riverfront ceremony and dance party under the moonlight felt so special. Everything felt so tranquil and romantic next to the river as we watched the sun go down.

The day started with Lindsey and her bridesmaids getting ready. The neighbors were so sweet and let Lindsey and her girls get ready in their extra space while the boys got ready close by. I loved being all in one area to go back and forth getting ready shots! Then, Lindsey and Brian did a first look together before the ceremony which was so sweet. It was so nice for them to have a few moments alone to soak everything in before the wedding started.

The Columbia river gorge wedding ceremony was so beautifully decorated with string lights and a wooden ceremony backdrop. The wedding reception was unreal and gave that summer garden party feel. All the guests ended up on the dance floor and everyone was having the best time! One of the best parts of the night, besides all the dancing and the cutest mobile bar cart, was when we were going to grab Pips Donuts. Fireworks started going off across the river and we dropped everything and started running to see them and captured the cutest moment. It was pure magic.

Lindsey & Brian first reached out to me to shoot their engagement photos. They flew me out to Oregon for their engagement photos last year and it just made being a part of their wedding day more exciting. Lindsey and Brian were some of the kindest humans I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Their wedding day came and it was no surprise that It was the perfect wedding that was so true to them & their vision. I loved getting to finally celebrate with them at their Columbia River Gorge Wedding! Lindsey and Brian made me feel like family, so warm and welcoming and I am so excited for this chapter in their lives.
