Wedding in the Wilds of Oregon


Sarah and Tom started their wedding day on their family’s land near Salem, with a beautiful ceremony under the tall trees strung with lights and fabric and chandeliers near the house.  A handful of their closest family witnessed.  After their vows and lots of hugs were exchanged, we hopped into the car and drove out to Henline Falls and the Opal Creek Wilderness for a hike and photo adventure.

The path to Henline Falls was framed with golden trees and autumn color everywhere.  At the waterfall, recent rain made for a thundering cascade and blowing mist.  I love how Sarah’s veil and dress is blown by the gusting wind coming off the water as it tumbles down.  I also pulled out my GoPro for some half-underwater shots, and the one below makes me grin–their faces perfectly tell about the COLD COLD water!
