Lauren & Mark’s Wedding | Mount Howard | Wallowa Lake | Joseph, OR

I’m kind of at a loss for words to properly describe how truly epic Lauren and Mark’s wedding was….maybe that word sums it up best. Epic.

My daughter, Amber, joined me as an assistant photographer.  We drove up to Lauren’s cabin the night before to meet her and the family.  And it was very obvious to both of us that this wedding was going to be something special.

Lauren grew up in Wallowa, OR, and although she now calls Toronto home, (Mark is a native Canadian,) this beautiful place holds a special place in her heart.  Guests from Canada, Australia, Scandinavia, and Scotland flew in to be present for this couple’s union.

The ceremony was held at the summit of Mount Howard, (part of the stunningly beautiful Eagle Cap Mountain range,) elevation 8,150 feet, and is accessible only by the Wallowa Lake Tramway, which is the steepest tram in North America.  Views of the majestic alpine peaks and Wallowa Lake below were breathtaking, to say the least.

The reception was held at the historic Edelweiss Building not far from the lake, near Joseph, Oregon.  It was a large, old log building with wooden floors, and provided a warm, rustic ambiance to the evening’s festivities.  Guests enjoyed delicious barbeque prepared by a family friend.  After dinner, laughter, fun, and dancing went on until late in the night.

Lauren and Mark, this was an absolutely amazing experience for us, and one we will treasure forever.  Thank you for letting us share your joy.
