Wedding in the Forest

I was honored to the officiant at the wedding of Jerod and Kaylan today. Warm day, no rain, perfect!

Set in the forested hills above the Willamette Valley about 80 miles SW of Portland, and not far from Oregon's famed wine country, this lovely couple committed their lives to each other in front of a large group of family and friends. The groom played a guitar rendition of the Wedding March, then broke into his own composition to welcome the bride to the front of the garden. Their kids scattered flowers.

Many congrats to you both!
