I would like to introduce you to Melissa and Adrian, the very first couple to get married at the gorgeous Rogue River Resort. I had the honor of photographing their wedding on June 24, 2023. Those that have the pleasure of meeting this couple can't help but see the love that they share. They both just beam with the happiness and joy of finding each other and building a life together. These two were both in a season of not looking for a partner but just happened to notice each other on a public Facebook group. They lived on opposite sides of the country. Eventually they started talking, and the rest is history. They talk about the first time they met in person and the seas of people that parted and gave them a view of each other in a very crowded airport. Melissa moved across the country to be with Adrian and doesn't regret it for a moment. She has fallen in love with their new life together and the beautiful valley that they call home. When planning their wedding, the Rogue River Resort and its picturesque riverfront property and small, intimate atmosphere stood out to them right away. Their special day was absolutely stunning, as they stood in front of friends and family on the banks of the river and pledged their lives to each other. I hope you enjoy this visual representation of a very special day for a very special couple!
