Are you considering getting married in the gorge? Let GorgeWedding.com be your comprehensive resource for Columbia River Gorge wedding professionals. From stunning venues to decadent desserts, unique rentals to outstanding photography, you’ll find it all here on the area’s most popular digital, bridal guide.
It’s no secret, destination weddings in the Gorge continue to grow in popularity. The lush nature of the landscape that boasts towering forests, wildflower meadows, dramatic mountain views, the largest concentration of waterfalls in North America, 4,000-foot cliffs and the great Columbia River, has proven to be the ideal setting for couples looking to wed. In addition to its unrivaled scenery, the Gorge attracts enthusiasts for its remarkable outdoor recreation and plethora of vineyards and local breweries. Known as the world’s capital for windsurfing, and one of the nation’s most scenic areas for road biking, kayaking, rafting, fishing and skiing, couples can be sure their wedding celebration will consist of more than just a day of nuptials. And when the day’s activities have commenced and celebratory toasts are in order, the pair and their guests can choose from 40 wineries such as Maryhill Winery, or the many local breweries – with a town favorite being Full Sail Brewing.
The best part? Although they attract 650,000 tourists a year, the area’s main towns of Hood River, Oregon and Stevenson, Washington maintain their small-town charm. Hood River Weddings exude the feel of a quaint and intimate venue, but emanate as much elegance and grace as those that are twice the size. This can be attributed to the remarkable Gorge wedding planners like Hitched in the Hood who have helped local brides, as well as Hollywood celebrities transform scenic, outdoor locations into five-star wedding destinations—each unique to the tastes and trends of the couple. And to ensure those who weren’t able to attend get to see what they missed out on, Gorge wedding photographers such as Blaine & Bethany Photography will capture every detail and moment for you to share after the wedding festivities have come to an end.
