Natalie + Brendan planned a semi-destination wedding for their friends and family at Silver Falls State Park just outside Salem, Oregon.
…I say semi-destination because the parents, wedding party, and some family all got to stay in the cabins for the weekend.
It started raining the day before the wedding, but any long-time Oregonian knows that October is an unpredictable month. While the ground was soggy the next day, the sky was dry and perfectly overcast for soft lighting and even temps. Natalie and Brendan included their young german shepherd as flower-dog and walked down the aisle together after being escorted into the ceremony space by their respective parents. After the reception the folks lucky enough to stay over enjoyed full tummies and the patter of rain falling on giant maple leaves to send them off to dreamy land.
