Sneak Peek: Our Marriage Ceremony Location

At 4 pm this Saturday (tomorrow!), Joe and I are going to exchange our marriage vows here at this stone shelter at the top of Cape Perpetua–the highest point on the Oregon Coast.

On a clear day, apparently you can see 20 miles out to sea from the shelter. The Saturday forecast is calling for 70% chance of rain, so we do have a back-up plan if things get torrential (the shelter is open on three sides), but we’ve also got umbrellas and a dream of taking in this view–150 miles of coastland.

Isn’t it a sweet little spot? The shelter was built in 1933, and is on the National Register of Historic Places. We’re excited for it to be such a special part of our own history.

Joe and I have chosen to have a very intimate ceremony with just two close friends and our marriage officiant attending. All through this week leading up to the day, we’ve felt the love of all our friends and family who have been so supportive of our relationship and path to getting here–a journey that’s taken us from a bus ride in Korea where we met, to travel in the Philippines, India, Indonesia and Cambodia, to moving to Portland and creating our life here.

As we exchange the vows we’ve written together, I know we will feel all the amazing people in our lives with us. We wanted to share this place with you all, so if you like, you can picture us there in your minds, and send some beams of love our way. We will be sending them out all the way across the water!

  1. I am so happy for both of you! I remember back when you met, and when you were working through moves and distance and planning the future. Going through those same questions now myself, it is so amazing to see that you two have made it through strong, and are committed to a life together :) Congrats and I wish you so much happiness in the next phase of your relationship!

    • Thank you, Kendra! I really appreciate your words. It was a lot of work getting here with the visa process, but all worth it :) Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions down the road! xo

  2. Oh Tater what an incredible place to exchange vows with one another. May your love cast giant rays of light over each other tomorrow! Congratulations, much love to you both.
