Marissa and Daniel had their wedding at the stunning Skamania Lodge overlooking the scenic Columbia Gorge. I have always wanted to photograph a wedding at Skamania lodge as I have eaten their awesome Sunday brunch many times and have always been mesmerized by the location.
This being a Jewish wedding, there were many Jewish traditions too, my favorite it is the hora (chair dance) of course. I love seeing the looks on the faces of whoever is being lifted in the air. Since their wedding was on July the 11th they also served Slurpees to their guests, honoring their 7-11 date. Marissa was a trouper – she had a cast/boot on her leg but you could not tell from the way she danced all night! The groom had scrabble cuff links – very cool! Marissa’s mother, Carol, is an accomplished photographer – check out her beautiful work here. Her dad, Daniel Isaak is also a very respected rabbi.
