Wallowa Lake Wedding Day Details
Awesome couple. Epic location. Double bonus!
But really, I cannot even begin to tell you how great it was working with Mandy & Rudy…and all their awesome friends and family! Mandi found me searching the interwebs for all things ‘eco-friendly wedding’ and incorporated a lot of “green” into her big day. Yet another perfect touch.
I love destination weddings and this 4th of July weekend wedding in Joseph, Oregon was one for the ages. Everything took place around the absolutely gorgeous Wallowa Lake, which sits somewhat isolated from the rest of the world in northeast Oregon. From the firework show, to the beautiful lakeside log cabins, to the breathtaking ceremony site, being situated high up on the moraine overlooking the lake, and the picturesque mountain range in every direction. It was just absolutely perfect. And on top of all that goodness they had an absolutely epic dance party that went into the wee hours. And after that dance party we ran around the foothills of the Wallowa Mountains, under a stunningly brilliant midnight sky. I don’t use this term lightly (or ever) but this destination wedding was truly amazeballs. 😉

The location is privately owned by a local Joseph, Oregon area business. They do allow select weddings on their beautiful property. Please reach out to me directly and I can share their contact information privately.

I stayed in a cool little cabin right on the river at their sister resort Flying Arrow Resort and it was equally amazing.
