Bridal Veil Lakes Wedding | Columbia River Gorge Wedding Venues
It’s always fun when I get to be a second photographer at a wedding, especially when its at a venue that I’ve really been wanting to check out. I had heard great things about Bridal Veil Lakes, and it really lived up to all my expectations. I also really love second shooting because it allows me to look for some of the smaller moments throughout the day! Thanks to Darien letting me collaborate with him on this fun wedding.
We started the day with the bride and groom getting ready in Portland and then ventured into the Columbia River Gorge for their ceremony and reception. We battled a little rain during the first look, but thankfully, the sky really cleared up just in time for their ceremony and eventually made for an amazing sunset which we took full advantage of during the couples sunset portrait session.
I know a challenge some couples face when wanting to get married in the Gorge is the distance from the city. It can be tough to ask guests to drive a long way, but one of the great things is that Bridal Veil Lakes is only about 30 minutes from the city. The lake features a lake, lush trees and also has a great view point of the Gorge, which you can see in one of my photos!
