On a rainy September morning, I headed south from Portland to the Oregon Garden Resort in Silverton. This place is a massive oasis of winding paths nestled within the countryside. There are literally thousands of species of plants, flowers, and trees throughout the grounds.
The sun held until a few minutes before the ceremony and all the rain fell from the sky. Guests stuck it out getting drenched in their chars. I strategically held my camera and an umbrella at the same time. They rushed through the vows and ran inside for the unforgettable afterparty. Complete with an Egyptian belly dancer and lots of dance floor get down.
