A Silcox Hut Wedding
Sallie + Aaron’s spring wedding on the snowy slopes of Mount Hood could take your breath away. Their intimate wedding was held at the historic Silcox Hut at Timberline Lodge. The day was truly a dream and a venue I have been wanting to shoot at since I laid my eyes on it when I moved to the Pacific Northwest a couple years ago. Many mountaineers know that the weather on Mount Hood can be temperamental and can change very quickly. But the weather that evening was as stunning as anyone could imagine, with light winds, clear skies and gray clouds to perfectly illuminate and filter the PNW sky. It was an incredible honor to capture Sallie + Aaron’s big day. Hope you enjoy their wedding day photos. Help them relive their magical moments just as much as I did. Congrats to the wonderful bride and groom, and to their families.
Silcox Hut’s history: Silcox Hut sits at 6,950 feet, which is approximately 1,000 feet above Timberline Lodge. It was named after Ferdinand Silcox, the fifth Chief of the US Forest Service who served from 1933–1939. Silcox was built in 1939 by the Works Progress Administration (WPA), which were part of efforts that provided millions of jobs and income to unemployed American during the Great Depression. In 1985, the hut was added to the National Register of Historic Places.
