Zach and Shaina were married in February - a beautiful, intimate ceremony at the cozy Silcox Hut at Timberline on Mt Hood. They've been together since high school and have been on countless adventures together - it seemed fitting to me that they celebrated their wedding at such an epic location. We took a snowcat to get there (first time i had ever been on one of those! super fun and kind of nervewracking, especially on the way back down in the dark) - the hut is above the main lodge at 7000 feet so it really felt like a whole other world. Especially with all the crazy snow! It was so intense we couldn't shoot outside much but we did manage a couple portraits - Zach and Shaina were very good sports!
Twinkly lights, candles, hanging baubles, white flowers and gold sequin tablecloths made an elegant setting for the family-style dinner at the reception. These two are such a stylish couple - Shaina wore a gorgeous beaded gown with fur stole and Zach's blue suit and pocket watch were very dapper. The blue fabric on her bouquet was the same material that Zach had used to make them bracelets in high school.
i am ridiculously thankful that the amazing Jay Eads was willing to be my 2nd shooter/backup for this wedding. i was 38 weeks pregnant at the time and couldn't have done this without him! some of his photos are mixed in below - see if you can spot the one of prego-photog-me! ;)
a million congratulations to Zach and Shaina and their families - thanks for such a special weekend.
