On a cold, foggy, October day I drove east from Portland towards Hood River. After crossing the Hood River bridge into Washington and driving up, up, up into the rolling hills of forest and vineyards the fog began to grow. Something about fog makes everything so quiet and peaceful. After a beautiful journey through backroads of yellow topped trees, I arrived to Gorge Crest Vineyards - a spectacular oasis tucked into the hillside. Sprawling views of their vineyards bleed effortlessly into the backdrop of the dramatic Columbia River Gorge. I’m told that Mt. Hood is centered beautifully with the property though the mountain hid shyly behind a dramatic mask of fog on that day.
Sarah & Ed brought 100 of their closest friends and family from all parts of the globe to celebrate with them. They say that rain on your wedding day is a sign of good luck. And although these two won’t need any luck to continue their already effortless bond, the rain persisted for much of their day. Somehow the rain energized their diverse mix of Chinese, Portlandese and Chicagoese guest list who applauded as they wed and danced the night away.
