bride and groom with son on rock in river

Kellie and Jason's sweet wedding gives "rustic" a whole new meaning. This event started with a few close friends and family hiking for a hour with the couple to their ceremony site, Wahclella Falls.  Accompanying them was Kellie and Jason's adorable son, Dash.  This intimate, woodsy wedding is definitely one to remember! Thank you to Powers Photography Studios for sharing this lovely event.

Our Favorite Things:

  • The picnic basket snacks (What other wedding reception serves beef jerky and raisins with champagne?)
  • The couple's decision to have an utterly unique wedding that felt true to them
  • Dash's wooden sign ushering his mom to his dad
