Last September, we could have never anticipated the unfortunate event of The Eagle Creek Fire that affected miles of the Columbia River Gorge including Wind Mountain Ranch in Stevenson, WA.
Stephanie + Brian tied the knot two weeks after the fire started. Leading up to that September 16 date definitely made for a unique planning and communication experience, which I feel grateful to have worked with such a professional and stellar vendor team.
One special callout I want to make is to Molly, vendor coordinator at Wind Mountain Ranch, who went above and beyond providing daily photo updates to me and the couple as we worked through the stages of smoke, fire, and road closures. As you can see, the grounds looked amazing and the smoke (and fire at times) created a memorable backdrop at a one-of-a-kind venue located in the Gorge.
The words to describe Stephanie + Brian’s special day also reflect everything they stand for and represent as a couple: joyous, positive, understanding and loving.
As I reflect on this wedding, it puts all things planning into perspective and makes me appreciate the community we work in every day.
