The Vision

More fun, less formality! We'll be getting married around noon in a short, informal ceremony. We've decided to skip the wedding party, procession, and big white dress in favor of just enjoy being surrounded by loved ones for this special moment.

After the ceremony, Milo McIver offers many options for fun: hiking, disc golf, and river play being our favorites! We'll host a BBQ, bring our board games, and have a few squirt guns on site! Feel free to bring any board games or other summer activities that you enjoy. If you decide to bring water balloons, please, plan to clean up the rubber leavings.

This is a casual wedding and we're encouraging all our guests to come in shorts, t-shirts, or whatever's comfortable for running around on a hot day.

After the wedding and reception, we'll be staying right in Milo McIver State Park. We have an "rustic" camp site that can sleep up to 100 people in tents, plus a place to park your car. If you'd like an RV-friendly space or a private site, reservations are open. Park information is available here and there's a link on the left-hand side for making reservations. Unfortunately, I've found no feasible business for equipment rentals, though I recommend calling REI if you're very enthusiastic.

If you're not much for camping or it seems like too much of a hassle, McIver is located in close proximity to Portland. I'm sure we'll be able to get a block of rooms within a 30 minute drive or so. We'll have more news for you on that front later.

Hope you can make it! Feel free to leave comments or email with questions or thoughts!

Love from Megan & Kelly!
