Shay and Chris: Camp Lane Oregon Wedding

Shay was surprised with Chris proposed to her over a year ago but then again she knew that they would one day get married. In fact, Shay shared with us that she told him so before their first date!
For their wedding, they just wanted everyone to have fun and the best way they could think to do this was to not tell their guests they were getting married. Everyone would be invited to a summer camp for a weekend in Oregon full of games, fires, and camp activities. So for a year Shay and Chris kept their engagement secret, welcomed a baby boy to the world, and planned their low key wedding. On wedding day the guests knew something was going on, but the rumor was Chris was going to propose once Shay returned from picking up a close friend at the airport. Really, Shay was secretly getting ready in an employee only room at the camp.         Everyone made their way through the fields to where Chris would propose and guests believed that the cameras were just there to capture the proposal. While the guests and Chris were waiting for Shay, a slurry of activity was happening on the other side of the camp to set up the reception and dinner. Of course, once Shay appeared in her wedding dress everyone realized what was happening. There was excitement and tears during the ceremony, but most of all everyone was relaxed and celebrated with the couple well into the evening.                                  

Congrats Shay and Chris!

Romantic Columbia River Gorge Elopement

Columbia Gorge Elopement Submission-25.jpg

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.
