Megan and Allen’s ceremony took place on a green hilltop in Hood River with Mt. Hood rising beyond. To reach the hilltop, the bride and groom and their friends and family hiked up a dirt and gravel trail for about a mile and a half until they found the perfect spot with the best view. The outdoorsy, adventurous location was perfect for the newlyweds given their history. Megan and Allen met at work, but their relationship really kicked off during a trip to Moab, the adventure capital of Utah, where they ran a half marathon together. Sharing a love for traveling, the two of them ventured all over Washington, Oregon and Canada until Allen finally asked Megan to marry him just outside of Quebec City at the Hotel de Glace, otherwise known as The Ice Hotel.
After the ceremony, the newlyweds and I explored the surrounding area, including the winding trail that led to the ceremony site, a field of yellow wild flowers, orchards with their white flowers blossoming and train tracks leading toward a snowcapped peak in the distance. Soon enough, we arrived at the reception being hosted at the Panorama Lodge, a large rustic cabin tucked away in the Hood River hills where one of Megan’s relatives manned the grill and the guests gathered around a long table decorated with flowers in mason jars on the back deck for an intimate family dinner.
To top things off in the most appropriate way, for their honeymoon Megan and Allen decided to visit Arizona’s majestic Havasupai Falls, which can only be accessed by hiking down an 8-mile trail that ends at the bottom of the Grand Canyon.
