Deep Woods Event | Eugene Wedding Venue


Happy Tuesday!

One of my first weddings I photographed when I started my business was at Deep Woods Events.  It was the wedding of David and Krystal.  I fell in love with this place the minute I saw it.  Besides  offering endless backdrops for photography it is the perfect venue for your special occasion regardless of the time of year or weather conditions.   With the indoor hall, you have the option for an indoor and/or outdoor wedding.

Today I am continuing “For Brides Only Series”  featuring Deep Woods Events.  Deep Woods Events is a gorgeous wedding and special events venue located on eight acres of majestic firs and sequoias, just a few minutes west of Eugene, Oregon.  Deep Woods offers a  beautiful lush green manicure lawn that is surrounded by breathtaking gardens with an array of flowers, ferns, and a walking path along a backdrop of sequoias.
