I took a relaxing drive through the picturesque Willamette Valley the other day, while on my way to the Green Villa Barn and Gardens. I received a warm and friendly welcome from Sharayah and Alex, who were gracious enough to give me the grand tour of the grounds.

Tranquil Beauty at the Portland Japanese GardenJuly 8, 2014
Truly an oasis in the city of Portland, the Japanese Garden is filled with a lush landscaping offering natural serenity. This is a haven of meticulously maintained, tranquil beauty. Proclaimed one of the most authentic Japanese gardens outside of Japan, the 5.5-acre space includes an authentic Japanese tea house, meandering streams, intimate walkways and an unsurpassed view of Mount Hood.
I highly recommend a visit if you make it to Portland. You can stroll along the pond and tea gardens. It’s just so peaceful here. If you’re looking for inspiration or a place to reflect, or simply to capture some natural beauty, this is the spot! Here are a few images that I took from my visit.
Dreamy Pink and Gold Classic WeddingJuly 1, 2014
