Hidden deep in the Willamette Forest, a secret wedding took place. There were five total in attendance: a groom, bride, officiant, photographer, and a bagpiper.
Processing to the tune "The Secret Wedding" (made famous from the scene in Braveheart) the bride made her way to her fiance, and the marriage was sealed.
The location and moment were made even more so indelible as only a few miles away a forest fire raged. I assume after we left it destroyed the very spot we stood.
I've played many weddings, big and small, but this was a very intimate and enjoyable first serving as one of the witnesses (and even signing the marriage license)!
Congratulations to Malcolm and Cathy on a unique and fantastic wedding! Cheers and all the best!
