The search for the perfect elopement destination led Bruce and Leigh to Multnomah Falls, located in The Columbia River Gorge, outside of Portland, Oregon.
This wedding was a beautiful expression of love, from the song that Bruce sang to Leigh during the ceremony to the umbrellas that they brought in case it decided to rain. It was all so sweet, and their love for one another so evident, that Amber cried during the vows, even though she had met them just 30 minutes earlier. It was so cool how they flew in from the east coast to become husband and wife. We really loved how personal this day was for them, and it was great that their family and friends came out to witness their love.
Bruce and Leigh wanted to get married in front of Multnomah Falls without crowds of people, so we all arrived around 8am to ensure the park would be fairly empty. Another added bonus was that we missed the summer heat that so many couples endure. After the ceremony we all got onto a party bus and did cake & mimosas in the AC. Beverly with Elope in Oregon was the Coordinator and officiant for this wedding.
