The Big K Ranch

The Big K Ranch, near Elkton, Oregon is a year-round hunting lodge that also hosts the occasional wedding. I’m glad Heather & Jon decided to eschew the standard ceremony location (inside the dark, wood-paneled lodge) and move everything outside. While it was indeed hot and sunny, everyone was provided one of these pretty paper parasols…except the bride and groom! Their wedding party did a great job keeping them shaded. For more images like this, be sure to check out my portfolio page on Smugmug. I’ve also just had my website redone; take a look and see what you think!

Hay You

Heather & Jon were married at the Big K Ranch in Elkton, Oregon along the banks of the Umpqua River. Heather, who’s from England, was a great sport and a very entertaining bride.

Elkton wedding at the Big K Ranch

Heather and Jon were married at the Big K Ranch near Elkton, Oregon. Despite the insanely hot weather, the entire wedding party was more than amenable to climb up these bales of hay for me. Since Jon is a friend of mine, I stayed overnight at the Big K Ranch. Let’s just say I got a great glimpse into what goes on at weddings in the wee hours of the morning. This was much the same as my experience in Cyprus (see previous post), when I stayed with the wedding party until 3 in the morning, simply because I had nothing else to do and the party was just too fun. Imagine drunken guests wading into the Mediterranean, completely dressed. Ahh, the life of a wedding photographer 🙂

Anyway, back to Heather and Jon!
