Camp Cascade Wedding | Lyons, OR | Mackenzie & Alex

Mackenzie & Alex’s Story

Alex and I met during my last year of college. Although Alex doesn’t remember, we first met at Walla Walla University at an English faculty lecture in the winter of 2016. Alex majored in English, but I was just there because of my nerdiness. I saw an empty seat a few seats down from him. His dark looks and blue eyes made me swoon every time I would see him on my way to class. We eventually crossed paths again at a Sailing Club bonfire event where Alex put on his best story-telling cap and good humor to impress me.

We really began to know each other better when hanging out with mutual friends and later through our common love of being outdoors, drinking Earl Grey tea, and cooking. I always joke I knew Alex was the one for me when he asked me what my favorite food was. I love paninis! He then informed he has not one, but TWO panini grills – what more could a girl want!?

On a stormy night in May, Alex took me for a drive up into the foothills of the Blue Mountains where we could watch the lightning flash across the valley. When the storm had cleared and the stars came out, Alex asked me to be his girlfriend. I have never felt so much excitement as I did when he slipped his hand into mine on the drive back to campus.

The last three and a half years have been filled with many adventures rock climbing, skiiing, and mountain climbing along with cooking new recipes and just enjoying the humor and affection of each other. It is only fitting that Alex proposed to me by having us rock climb to the top of Rooster Rock overlooking the Columbia Gorge. We are looking forward to spending our wedding day with friends and family in the beautiful setting of a camp along the river in the Cascades. This is only the beginning!

That’s What They Said – A 5 Star Review!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

“From the first phone call I had with Briana, I knew I instantly wanted her to do our wedding photos. Her lightheartedness, organization, and attention to detail helped make our wedding day easy and enjoyable from start to finish. From our first meeting to our reveal session, Briana added many thoughtful touches in her business style that left us feeling valued and special. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family for high quality, candid wedding photos!”
