Jennifer and Michael live in Cascade Locks, so it was only natural to get married there! They decided to have a short and sweet brunch wedding at Thunder Island with a reception at the Gorge Pavilion. This venue is also collectively known as The Locks Wedding and Event Venue. Jennifer and Michael are huge Disney fans and I loved all the little ways they incorporated Disney magic into their day! There were little bits of Disney sprinkled throughout all their details - her manicure, his watch, the pens they signed their marriage certificate with, their cake, and even an Aladdin rug during their ceremony.
They also ended their party with a white bouncy castle - SO FUN! It was playful, special and a great way to entertain their guests.

About Thunder Island Weddings
Thunder Island, also known as The Locks Wedding and Event Venue, is a part of a historic marine park on the Columbia River. The venue offers scenic views of the surrounding Columbia River Gorge, as well as a cozy indoor pavilion for receptions. There is also a historic home, “house #3” where couples can get ready and take photos. All the spaces are a short stroll or a one minute drive apart.
The venue is owned by the Port of Cascade Locks and has a capacity of around 200 guests. The island is connected to the mainland via a small footbridge, and chairs are included in the rental. If you rent the Gorge Pavilion as well, it has a capacity of 400 standing or 200 sitting.
