Chris and Amanda had their first date at Peet's Coffee and then proceeded to spend not only the rest of the evening together doing all the fun American "things" but soon realized that this was going to be much more.
They spent 8 inseparable months together learning about each other and beginning a wonderful adventure together.
Chris planned a wonderful proposal on the Point Lawn at the Columbia Gorge Hotel & Spa and after a magnificent evening of dining and strolling of our 7 acre lawns he got down on one knee and professed his love and intention to spend the rest of his life with Amanda. She clearly said, "YES!"
A few weeks later they decided to return to the Columbia Gorge Hotel & Spa to say, "I do". With an intimate Ceremony, family Facetimed in from London, and enough breaks in the rainy weather to roam the grounds and snap some amazing photos, Chris and Amanda began their "Happily Ever After".
We had one week to plan a detailed and romantic Ceremony and Reception and with the help of fantastic local vendors, Lucy's Informal Flowers and Jen Jones Photography, we pulled off a most beautifully evening of love, laughter and romance!
Congratulations Chris and Amanda! Thank you for choosing the Columbia Gorge Hotel & Spa!
