Our Wedding Story
Welcome to Our Wedding Story.
On July 27th, a million and a half years ago, a great flash
of light—maybe created by the birth of a new being, or a rip in the space-time continuum—filled the wilderness now known as Silver Falls State Park with pure love.
At first, none of the wilderness creatures knew what to think about it. Then they saw Love dance through the high green trees and crawl out from under the rocks. They saw Love shoot through the waterfalls and shake the huckleberry bushes in rainbows of color no creature had seen before. And it was so beautiful it kind of drove everyone crazy. Wild Creatures who usually kept their distance met, sniffed, purred, fluttered, and made sounds at each other. Fish leapt from Silver Creek to flap their tails at the deer; cougars frolicked in harmonious clouds of blood suckers, gnats, and dragonflies; marmots came down from their alpine huts to gaze in wide wonder as the bears let the mice run through their teeth.
And Love was not forgotten. Every July 27th for the last million and a half years, the wilderness creatures of this place have gathered to remember. In that tradition, Emily Renée Cooper and Jacob Robert Wasson have gathered here today with you—all their wilderness creature friends and family—to show you their love in a wedding story that begins now, with a great flash of light…
