Come celebrate Rebecca and Danny’s romantic Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden Wedding! Located less than 30 minutes from the Portland airport, the internationally recognized Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden is the perfect place to host your outdoor wedding. This unique nine-acre garden is home to rare species and hybrid rhododendrons, azaleas, lesser-known shrubs, and unusual trees. Three waterfalls and a spring-fed lake surrounding the garden provide the perfect tranquil environment to say, “I do.” Three sites are available for your dream wedding: The Meadow, The Woodland, and The Jane Martin. All three locations have dramatically different yet equally as stunning backdrops.
Sound Originals was so excited to photograph Rebecca and Danny throughout the beautiful garden. The lush greenery, vibrant flowers, and fairytale bridges naturally highlighted the couple’s effortless beauty. Their ceremony took place at The Jane Martin site, on a small patio, with a cascading waterfall in the background. Rebecca and Danny took part in the Celtic tradition of a Handfasting Ceremony. They tied three ropes together, representing the two families welcoming each other and the couple forming a new family of their own. To end the celebrations, everyone enjoyed an intimate dinner together.
Our photographers did a wonderful job capturing all the breathtaking details of this beautiful day! We are so excited to share Rebecca and Danny’s stunning wedding!
