- Bathe in Nature – Picture this: exchanging vows amidst majestic landscapes that seem straight out of a fairytale. Oregon offers an array of natural wonders—pristine forests, dramatic coastlines, and breathtaking mountains. Consider starting your day with an intimate sunrise hike along the coast or a secluded spot overlooking the cascading waterfalls of Silver Falls State Park.
- Local Flavor and Delights – There is so much good food in Oregon! From Portland’s foodie scene to the fresh seafood on the coast, you can find all kinds of yummy dishes. Oregon is also the perfect place if you want to celebrate at a brewery after hitting the trails or if you want to put together a picnic with local treats.
- Adventurous Pursuits – So much adventure can be found in Oregon – paddle boarding pristine blue lakes, hiking coastal cliffs, and sunrise hot air balloon rides just to name a few. Plus, not everything requires a strenuous hike – there are plenty of adventurous things you can do without breaking a sweat!
- Secluded Serenity – If you’re looking for a more chill & cozy vibe then Oregon also has tons of secret hideaways for you. One of my favorites is this coastal house rental. There are also gorgeous forest cabins and amazing campsites to choose from!
