Bridal Veil is one of my favorite outdoor venues to have a wedding ceremony in Oregon. Located high above the Columbia Gorge, it makes a great backdrop for getting married. There is a beautiful lake and wandering, green paths that surround the lake. The flowers and grounds are kept immaculate. There are a few canoes and often times, the bride will row across the lake to the ceremony with her father just before the ceremony begins. To date, I have photographed two weddings at Bridal Veil, but will totally jump at the chance to do it again. Some of my favorite photos that I have in my porfolio are from Bridal Veil Lakes.
To get to Bridal Veil Lakes in Oregon, take I-84 out past Troutdale to the the Bridal Veil exit. Turn right after exiting the freeway, and you will see the sign for Bridal Veil Lakes up ahead on your left. Follow the gravel road for a mile or so, climbing steeply. There are plenty of signs guiding you to the top.
