Columbia Gorge Hotel Wedding // Tim + Marissa


In the heart of the Pacific Northwest, Tim and Marissa embarked on their wedding day of love at the iconic Columbia Gorge Hotel & Spa. This historic manor, perched on a scenic cliff overlooking the majestic Columbia River, has a storied past as “The Waldorf of the West.” Presidents Roosevelt and Coolidge, along with movie stars like Clara Bow, Rudolph Valentino, and Shirley Temple, have all graced its enchanting halls. The same romantic allure set the tone for Tim and Marissa’s special day.

Sound Originals captured the day’s magic, showcasing the couple’s love with stunning portraits. Marissa, paying homage to the venue’s rich history, wore a 1920s-inspired beaded straight gown with an illusion back. Tiffany from Subi Salon created an elegant updo and makeup to complement her look, while her bouquet of wildflowers added a natural touch, skillfully arranged by Amore Events. Tim looked dapper and effortlessly stylish as he donned a well-tailored navy suit. His look added an air of timeless sophistication.

The couple exchanged heartfelt vows on the Point Lawn, overlooking the magnificent Columbia River. A delightful cocktail hour followed, with the sun setting on the horizon as the newlyweds signed their marriage certificate. The grand entrance and dinner marked the evening’s festivities, accompanied by toasts and dancing courtesy of DJ Kenny, all coordinated by the capable hands of Columbia Hotel‘s event director Alyria Everett.

We wish Tim and Marissa a life filled with love and cherished memories. Scroll below to witness this beautiful day.
