On my first official day as the Real Weddings intern, I wanted to showcase a beautiful wedding from my home state of Oregon. In the words of photographer Sara Gray, “Brooke and Galen decided to do things a little differently – they went to a covered bridge they loved in college and exchanged vows in front of family and friends at this simple elopement ceremony.”
The bride and groom were married in front of the Goodpasture Bridge in Eugene. It is one of the longest covered bridges in Oregon, as well as one of the oldest at 73 years old. After the vows, they toasted their new marriage with their party of eight. What I adore about this wedding is the love that jumps off the page. This wedding feels so organic, rich, and full of happiness. Which is what weddings are all about. Enjoy.

What a beautiful wedding. Who needs to spend a fortune getting married? If you’ve got love, you’ve got everything you need. Congratulations Brooke and Galen!
