Cheyenne and Erik’s Wedding at Camp Turnaround

Although Camp Turnaround is a mere 45 minute drive from Portland (and a lovely scenic one at that) Cheyenne and Erik’s wedding felt secluded and rustic. Old growth pines surrounded the cozy Gales Creek wedding site, a beautiful backdrop for the ceremony that took place in what appears to be, like the barn the party moved into for the reception, one of the newer buildings on the property. A pretty white gazebo and a miniature cottage both had mossy rooftops. This added to the camp’s countryside appeal. Combine with a weathered playground, Cheyenne and Erik’s fun, loving, and fun-loving family and friends, and you have a recipe for seriously fun photography.

Before the ceremony I would hear Cheyenne and Erik telling each other how much they were looking forward to being married each time they were close to one another. When it came time to exchange vows, Cheyenne and Erik weren’t the only ones dabbing at misty eyes. Clearly this couple is devoted to each other, and their love celebrated and supported by everyone there to witness it.

I’ll admit that I do still get teary a wee bit at weddings.

The father and daughter dance had me teary more than just a wee bit. It was one of the sweetest things I’ve seen. Cheyenne’s sisters also got in on the fun, which reminded me of how much I cherish the close knit ties of my own big family.

Now, this isn’t to say that other dances weren’t touching or impressive. Erik’s got moves! I’m pretty sure he would take first place in an air guitar competition.

Cheyenne and Erik, I hope life continually showers you with the love and sweetness you show each other.
