At this Bridal Veil Lakes wedding (located an hour east of Portland), it was such a hot day, the groom really wanted to finish his ice cold drink even as I was taking photos! Sometimes these moments can be fun, and this was one of those times.
At Bridal Veil Lakes, about an hour east of Portland, couples have unlimited access to the property. This includes the use of canoes! Ashley was a very intrepid bride indeed, getting her wedding dress so close to so much water. I used my Canon 70-200mm lens and stayed on shore, paralleling them as they rowed their way across the lake. The couple in the other canoe were the Best Man and Maid of Honor, respectively. I shot their wedding a little later (also on water, at the Eagle Rock Lodge on the McKenzie River).
Ashley and Chris were married at Bridal Veil Lakes, near Multnomah Falls. It rained most of the day but the sun came out as the couple was making their way down the bridal path. I love how ethereal the light was here. You can see more from this wedding via this link.
