It had everything a photographer and a couple getting married could ask for. Domaine Margelle is a gorgeous winery south of Portland. Not only does it have vineyards and a beautiful view of the surrounding hills, it has an amazing forest right on the property. When you choose your location, it’s important to think about the visual options for your photos.

Is it accessible to all your guests? (If there are older guests who have mobility issues, you might want to make sure they can attend the ceremony). If it is an outdoor venue, will the sun be in the right place at the time of day we are planning to hold the ceremony and, is there an indoor option if the weather turns to rain? And, finally, are there a variety of visual options for portraits after the wedding? There are many beautiful wedding venues to choose from in a near Portland.
