Denise + Cody | Mt. Hood Wedding | Oregon Event Planning and Design | Honeysuckle Photography

Denise & Cody love everything about the outdoors, so when it came to selecting their wedding venue, it only made sense to get married at the Resort at the Mountain. Choosing the Lakeside Lawn for their ceremony and reception in mid-June and in Oregon was bound to have some potential weather challenges and boy did the weather gods play some tricks on us that day! With a morning filled with hail, thunder and lightening storms, left everyone scrambling for backup options- should we do everything under the tent, should we move inside the ballroom, or should we just make a game time decision.  Well, luckily for us, a game time decision was the right choice!! By the time the couple had done their first look, the clouds parted and it was as if Heaven's gates had opened up for us! 

The ceremony was beautifully written by a dear friend of both Denise & Cody, which also left no dry eye at their seats.  Guests were then able to enjoy cocktail hour out on the lawn and inside the tent while having appetizers and drinks. | Mt.

The chandeliers inside the tent were dripping with greenery and the tables had lush navy linens with gold beaded chargers topped with a pine cone at each setting.   During dinner the rain started back up again, but once it stopped, left an amazing double rainbow to which we whisked the couple outside for some amazing photos! The end of the rainbow literally ended where the couple had said their vows, now if that isn't luck, I don't know what is!
