A Rainy Bridal Veil Lakes Wedding
Tucked away and overlooking the Historic Columbia River Gorge, Bridal Veil Lakes is a perfect haven. For Lavitta & Colton, who were looking for a venue that would fulfill their Pride & Prejudice dreams, this dreamy outdoor space did just that. This hidden gem, surrounded by towering old-growth forests and a 3-acre spring-fed lake, became the backdrop for their special day. Every little detail mattered to them. Including the actual date of their wedding. Choosing to exchange their vows on Loving Day, the national celebration held on June 12th each year, held so much importance for Lavitta and Colton. Commemorating the landmark 1967 United States Supreme Court case, Loving v. Virginia, which abolished anti-miscegenation laws in 16 states, their wedding became not just a personal celebration but also a tribute to love’s triumph over adversity.
