Rick is an art director in advertising and Kelly works in marketing. The couple first crossed paths at a bar in LA in 2014 and hit it off immediately. "Our relationship grew through travel and we found ourselves taking many trips up to the pacific northwest. After falling in love with the surrounding nature, we decided to make the move north and settled in Portland."
The couple had originally booked a more traditional venue for their wedding. However, they soon realised that because of COVID restrictions, it would be impossible to celebrate their wedding as originally planned. "We still wanted to get married this summer, so we pivoted our plans and ended up renting our favourite Airbnb The Woodlands House, which is at the base of Mt Hood. We invited ten of our closest family members and had an intimate ceremony in the forest on the property. Luckily we had amazing vendors, including photographer Malorie Kerouac who were able to accommodate our new plans."
