Parkdale farm pairs with wedding photographer

Mt. View Orchards has teamed up with Portland wedding photographer Marla Cyree, owner of Simply Splendid, to give a lucky couple a wedding gift valued over $12,000.

Kicking off the newly constructed wedding venue, the two owners have teamed up to give what they call “the gift of a lifetime.” Winners in the giveaway receive the Orchard Meadow wedding venue and a photography package totaling over $12,000. All couples need to do is submit their wedding story for a chance to win at

The venue is currently being built in the meadow and will be surrounded by pear trees and Century Apple (100-year-old producing apple) trees. Some highlights of the package include two hours availability of site, tables and benches for up to 160 guests, lighted dance floor, open sided wooden beam reception barn, eight hours of wedding day photography, engagement photo session, and high resolution files.

Katrina McAlexander, owner of Mt. View Orchards, left life in the big city to return to rural life and purchase/run the family farm and carry on the legacy. She is a third generation farmer and is continuing the family tradition while farming with her parents. Mt. View Orchards has successfully launched a Fruit CSA, produces some of the best apple cider in the Hood River Valley and is adding hard cider crafted from their own apples and a wedding venue this summer.

Cyree of Simply Splendid is a successful Portland based photographer and has a timeless editorial style.
