This wedding was just breathtaking. As you will see from these photos the venue is gorgeous and the Mountain even made a grand appearance right before I left. But what I really loved about this wedding was the deep love and affection everyone showed one another. It was truly great to see laughter, joyful tears and such patience as the day unfolded. So in the PNW you never know how to predict the weather and in May it is very 50/50 on if the sun will make an appearance. The weather was showing a 75% rain forecast but every hour it kept pushing the rain out and out and the sun even came out. My favorite part was when the sun came out right as it sprinkled slightly right when Jessica started walking down the isle and I also loved the frogs making huge noises during the opening prayer! These memories will always be there and I hope these photos will help bring back the experience of how beautiful their wedding was.
So these two met at a running group in Sacramento CA. They both noticed each other right away but become friends first. Interestingly enough they both said their first backpacking trip to Mt Hood was the moment they knew that they wanted to be together forever! Garrett said, “I fell in love with her adventure and constant smile during that trip.” And Jessica said, “I realized when he was applying sunscreen on my back that I enjoyed his touch a little too much for a friend!” This was the trip that began their love journey. It was on that mountain top they had their first kiss and the rest is history! So it is a perfect fit that they picked this beautiful venue and that the mountain which means so much to them both decided to make an appearance before the night had arrived.
