Featured Hood River, Oregon Rustic Wedding: Elizabeth and Jay

By Azure Nelson, Published Jul 27, 2010

Featured Wedding by Alice and Josh of Mosca Photo Elizabeth and Jay are one amazing couple! Down to Earth, fun, loving, intelligent and inspiring people. There is nothing quite like having the perfect combination of the perfect couple, with the perfect wedding venue. Wedding photographs are simply bound to transmit the emotion of the day, making us feel oh so lucky to do what we do! The wedding day started at the Hood River Hotel, in the charming little surfing town of Hood River, Oregon, on the banks of the Columbia River. The Hood River Hotel is a Registered Historic Landmark and the perfect setting for Elizabeth’s getting ready portion of the day. The windows are large, the light is bright, the view of the river is majestic… After about one hour of putting the wedding dress on, touching up the makeup and putting lovely little orange roses in her hair, we started our short walk down the hill to Springhouse Cellars. This wedding venue is amazing to say the least! This wedding was only the third ever to be photographed here. The owners and I had been in contact for months, discussing the best possible way for mood-lighting to be unobtrusively incorporated within the ruins. When we got there, it was perfect! The ceremony area and reception tables were set with simple bright flowery decorations, white linens, and comfortable chairs in the middle of an old ruin. The ceiling was open to the sky, only the two story shell of the building remains, acting as the perfect rustic backdrop to an otherwise fresh, light and warm wedding celebration. The day went on without a hitch! Towards the end of the night, once the sun had set and the sky became the picturesque azure blue photographers like us long for, I was able to access the rooftop for some absolutely amazing points of view of the party happening on the inside of the ruins. All in all, this wedding day was beautiful. All of the wedding professionals worked together flawlessly, making Elizabeth and Jay’s day one to remember!
