The Orchard Hood River Wedding // Erika + Chris


In the heart of Oregon’s landscape, Chris and Erika’s wedding at The Orchard Hood River was nothing short of enchanting. Our Sound Originals photographers were on hand to capture every moment of the celebration at this stunning venue.

The day began with an intimate focus on the details. The rings, the exquisite culinary spread, the ceremony setup, decor and the inviting seating area were artfully captured. Erika, radiant in her Grace Loves Lace gown, was a vision of beauty. Her look was accentuated by hair and makeup artist Mkup by JuJu. Chris looked dashing in his dark gray suit, completing the perfect couple.

They exchanged heartfelt vows on the spacious wedding lawn during the outdoor wedding ceremony. Following the ceremony, guests gathered at the outdoor barn, enjoying front-row views of the majestic Mt. Hood. The couple sealed their love with the cutting of a gorgeous floral cake, crafted by Windflower Cakes.

Ty Turner provided lively entertainment for the day. As the evening unfolded, dancing took place under the gentle glow of string lights, with the iconic Mt. Hood in the background.

Thanks to the team of wedding vendors led by the talented wedding planner and florist Kimberly Wilder, this day was a true success. In-house catering by Celilo added a flavorful touch to remember.

As the festivities drew to a close, we send Chris and Erika our warmest wishes for a beautiful journey ahead. Scroll below to immerse yourself in the magic of this truly beautiful wedding.
