Redwoods Hoyt Arboretum Wedding

Maddie and Alex were married in a fairy tale forest ceremony at the redwood tree deck in Hoyt Arboretum. This Redwoods Hoyt Arboretum Wedding location is just a short drive from Portland, Oregon. The deck is the perfect location for both small weddings and elopements. And there is nothing quite like being married among these old giants. Something about it feels very uniquely PNW.

Keep in mind, parking can be limited at this location. Carpooling is usually the best plan of action.

The bride chose to get ready at a location in the Pearl overlooking the city, while the groom chose a house with a modern cabin feel and a large backyard. There are a plethora of options within ten minutes of forest park and it is easy to find one that fits both your unique style and budget.

The wildflower floral arrangements added a whimsical touch to this wedding and were provided by Vibrant Flowers.

 

After their Redwoods Hoyt Arboretum Wedding, everyone headed to the Sentinel Hotel for an intimate dinner in the Library Room. The hotel is located right downtown Portland within walking distance of both Powell’s bookstore and the Pearl.

Matt and Britta held their ceremony in the lush dark green forests of the Oregon coastline. I really love the versatility of the Oregon coast. One moment you can be in a mossy old growth forest, and with a five minute walk, you can arrive at a gently sloping dune filled beach nestled between large rocky cliffs. The Oregon coastline is always one of my first suggestions for clients traveling from outside of Oregon who contact me looking for elopements with dramatic backdrops. Nothing beats the unique formations found on Pacific Northwest beaches.

Colorful sunsets can be few and far in between on Oregon beaches, but when they happen, there is nothing quite like them. Everything is bathed in glowing reds, oranges, and purples.
