Karl & Darrian’s Silver Falls State Park Wedding
Darrien and Karl's wedding was magical in so many ways. Both Darrien and Karl live in Idaho but Silver Falls in Oregon is actually where Karl proposed to Darrien. The proposal happened on a secluded bridge that is not far from the massive falls. Darrien and Karl were actually able to do their first looks on the very bridge that the proposal happened. It was very romantic thing to witness.
Darrien and Karl had been together for a very long time before they got married. It was obvious that the families had already become very close. There was lots of joking around between the wedding parties. Laughing and hugging were common place, the family love was felt from all directions. It was an amazing environment to be in. I felt very lucky to be there.
Silver Falls in a magnificent place to get married. There are 10 waterfalls there that are connected to a very walkable loop. The largest of the falls is over 170 feet tall! After the wedding ceremony finished the photographer and myself took the couple down to the main falls for portraits. What a place to shoot, it felt unreal. The sound, the power of that fall, It was incredible.
We were able to actually sneak the couple behind the waterfall for some shots. It was a truly dreamy location, it seemed well worth the drive from Idaho.
I was a little worried originally about shooting at a large waterfall. Though beautiful, often times waterfalls can be very muddy places. I was worried that our bride might be a little uncomfortable getting her wedding dress all mucked up. That was not an issue at all. Darrien was totally game and we were able to capture a truly spectacular location with people who really loved each other. It was a dream gig.
After photos the couple served they guests pie. They had ten or so pies ready to go and they dished them out to their waiting guests. It was really a great way to say thank you to everyone who came.
The party vibes stayed strong the whole night. The dance party was next level. To me, it was basically a perfect wedding. Cheers Darrien and Karl!
