Oregon is green year round on the west side of this beautiful state. That is because we get so much rain. The month of June is a hit or miss on whether or not we get rain. When I arrived at the Ainsworth House and Gardens it was a major down pour. The venue was well prepared with plenty of white umbrellas for guests and for the whole wedding group. Regardless of the rain, the ceremony was going to be held outside under one of the original trees on the property. When the ceremony began, the heavens opened up and it stopped raining for Katherine & Hayden wedding at Ainsworth House and Gardens! We even had a pretty golden hour sunset and perfect weather for a sparkler send off. It was so perfect at such a beautiful and historic venue.
