Columbia Gorge Discovery Center Wedding // The Dalles, OR

Alicia + Mark had the most beautiful wedding celebration at the Columbia Gorge Discovery Center near the Dalles in Oregon this summer. While the temperatures may have been pushing 100 degrees, we survived the heat and got to adventure around the Columbia River Gorge to some of my favorite scenic viewpoints along the Oregon borders!!

Mark and the boys got ready in a brewery in Hood River that they love, and then we did their first look down at the beach where Mark spent many years kiteboarding and Alicia spent weekends on the beach watching him and cheering him on. I loved how this location was so uniquely special to THEM and not just what ANYONE would do!!! We figured it would be fitting to get some kites in the background for them then!! The excited cheers from strangers yelling “CONGRATS!!!” just added to the excitement of the day!

Then I got to show off Rowena Crest to the newlyweds, it was so crazy to me that they had never been to the top of the crest before!!! It was insanely HOT but beautiful.

Their wedding was sweet, heartfelt, and the after party was LIIIIT. Plenty of tacos and beer to go around!!!

After delivering their gallery, they sent me the sweetest review that I just needed to share!!! “Let me start by saying I have looked through each section of our gallery like ten times already- and they're all so GORGEOUS! I can't count how many times I teared up as I scrolled because every single one brought me back to all the special moments of our wedding day. My bridesman Josh asked me which ones are my favorite, and I said I don't even know how to choose because there are SO MANY!!  

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for capturing all those perfect moments Andie! You were by FAR the best investment we made for our wedding- Mark and I couldn't have hoped for a better photographer!! We appreciated you and your husband rolling with whatever happened (no shoes, groom stranded, timeline off schedule!!! lol) and finding some beautiful locations we didn't even know about.  Every single picture is amazing, you are the best!!!!!!!”
