Lucas Lodge Lower Rogue River Wedding

Fishing and river guide weddings here in Oregon are now my very favorite. This one did not disappoint especially with such a unique and special couple. Artists and river guides with a tiny baby in tow they were an absolute pleasure to work with...

This wedding was absolutely perfection! We travelled to meet his couple and their friends who had rafted into Lucas Lodge on the lower Rogue River for a beautiful elopement style wedding. After a journey up the Oregon Coast to Gold Beach, Oregon...due to Bear Camp Road being closed during Spring, it was as always a refreshing experience to land at Lucas for this destination Oregon wedding. 

Here is a peek at Mr and Mrs Sampsel~

 

Outdoor Rafting Themed Wedding on The Rogue River

This fun and gorgeous wedding took place in April on a Thursday at the brides fathers home on the Rogue River here in Grants Pass, Oregon. For those of you familiar with Oregon you know an April wedding can be a bit of a rain risk. I bit my nails for months ahead of it but when the week came it was one of the warmest most beautiful weeks I can remember in an April. 

TJ and Emily were surrounded by some of the most wonderful family and friends on this special day. They were up early the next to raft downriver with their friends for several days to celebrate. I could not think of anything more fun or adventurous!

Special thanks goes to many wonderful people who came together on this day and here are just a few~
