Brooke, an editor for a book publisher and Tom, and engineering student knew each other through mutual friends but fell in love performing at open-mic sessions in their hometown. They move to Oregon together and while they are both very busy, take every opportunity to explore. Brooke's grandmother and grandfather were together their whole lives and had known each other since they were small. Brooke wear her grandmother's ring and knows her and Tom have an amazing road ahead.
Shannon and Aaron had just started dating, discussing things big and small when out on a date, Aaron looked at Shannon and shared that he believed life was an adventure and that was how he chose to live his life. It was during that conversation that Shannon recalls falling in love, and the couple has since held true to that philosophy—that life is an adventure. They have hiked trails, discovered secret swimming holes, and lived each day fully. After Aaron proposed in a beautiful natural setting, they both knew they wanted their union to be one of many more adventures.
Drawn to the landscape of the Pacific Northwest, Aaron and Shannon flew across the country from South Carolina to Portland, Oregon to elope. Awe struck by the beauty of the Columbia River Gorge, they exchanged vows against a waterfall backdrop and Oregon rain. It was such a romantic day, and we couldn't be happier to share the photos.

Adam and Martiza, two graduate students completing their degrees in Arizona and Sonora. México respectively, met through school and fell for each other. They enjoyed a long-distance relationship before becoming engaged and opted to celebrate amongst close friends and family in Adam's home state of Oregon. We first connected with the couple via Google Hangout and even with the faulty connection both Martiza's natural exuberance and Adam's adoration for his partner came through. We hope you enjoy this wedding that took place at one of our favorite Willamette Valley Vineyards-Zenith Vineyard-as much as we did. Congratulations and cheers to Martiza and Adam!
