Small Intimate Elopement | SODO Seattle

This Corson Building Wedding was the perfect union of intimate wedding day and formal garden party. It was our first of hopefully many visits to the Corson Buidling in the SODO neighborhood in Seattle. The small space packs a big punch of photographic charm. The grounds are surrounded by lush gardens of herbs, vegetables, and all manor of flora that drapes almost every surface at the small property. It usually functions as a farm to table restaurant, but if you are a foodie you’ll want to rent it for your wedding!

When we arrived we found our bride upstairs in the loft adorning a flower crown that would perfectly match her surroundings. They wanted to keep things simple, and so did we. For their first look we chose the courtyard right in front of the Corson Building, it was the perfect backdrop. Then, we spent their portrait time weaving among all the garden beds.

After some time for portraits, we joined their friends and family for a beautiful ceremony performed by the groom’s father. The tears and the laughter reminded us why we love this job and telling these stories. That is one of our favorite parts about intimate weddings – less people, but the same amount of emotions! The joy didn’t end there though, as everyone made their way over to the lush outdoor dining area for dinner and toasts. It was the perfect dinner party celebrating the union as the sun went down.

Adventure Wedding | Lake Tipsoo Washington

Summer and Jason were tugging at our heart strings a bit when they told us about their plans for their intimate Mount Rainier elopement. As photographers, we live to shoot weddings like this. We love weddings full of nature, incredible relationships, and rich emotions. Summer and Jason chose the perfect little cabin just outside of Greenwater, on the way to Tipsoo Lake, to get ready with their family. One of our favorite aspects of Summer and Jason’s Lake Tipsoo elopement was that they didn’t let “small, intimate, elopement” mean that they couldn’t go all out with the things they were passionate about. This was clear the moment we stepped into the little cabin. The first thing that greeted us was a small but stunning 2 tiered cake, and a beautiful tablescape filled with greenery and rustic cabin decor place settings for eight. We also had 4 full hours with them. Perfect for some getting ready shots, and a full sunset photo session in addition to their planned ceremony. Before getting ready, Summer and Jason had this awesome idea for a unity painting where they both painted halves of a circle on a canvas in the woods behind the cabin. It was such a simple but meaningful keepsake for them from their wedding day!

Once everyone was ready to go, we all drove up the mountain to Tipsoo Lake. Standing across the lake, we waited for Summer’s arrival. Watching Summer, their ring bearer and flower girls walk around the lake edge was the perfect lead up to their intimate ceremony. Since it was late August, the wildflowers were blooming all around. Jason’s father performed their ceremony by the edge of the lake. We had perfect solitude for their emotional ceremony. After their nuptials were exchanged, their family headed back to the cabin to prepare for dinner while we adventured around with Summer and Jason until the sun set.

It is hard to go wrong with an idea like having a summer mountain wedding, so don’t be afraid to follow in Summer and Jason’s foot steps. We would love for you to contact us about your Mount Rainier wedding plans!

Lake Crescent Elopement | Olympic National Park Elopement Photos

Megan and Vince contacted us a few months before their big day about their idea Lake Crescent elopement with just the two of them, and two close friends. They both felt a special draw to getting married in Olympic National Park surrounded by mountains and forest.

Their wedding day started in Port Angeles, the gateway to Olympic National Park. Where both of them anxiously put on their wedding day attire in the company of a close friend. We had only met them briefly before, but within minutes of our arrival we felt their warmth for each other, and everyone around them. They had the sweetest first look just outside their hotel, and from that moment on we knew our job was going to be easy.

Initially, the idea was for them to elope at Hurricane Ridge overlooking the Olympics. As we were watching the webcam from the hotel a dense layer of fog quickly engulfed the area. We made the drive up the mountain with high hopes, but the cloud cover made seeing each other nearly impossible – much less the mountains. We were blessed with a few minutes of sunshine at an overlook and made the most of it (and some of our favorite images). Then, we decided to drive on to Lake Crescent for their vows.

We arrived at the lake and looked out towards the fog covered and rain drenched landscape, then back at each other with worried expressions. Megan and Vince pulled in not far behind us, and jumped out of the car ready to get married. They blissfully ignored the curve ball mother nature had thrown them. It was at that moment that we both knew Megan and Vince were the perfect Salt and Pine couple! That adventurous, go anywhere, do anything attitude meant that even in the pouring rain they were saying their vows on the dock. After a quick, but meaningful ceremony performed by Megan’s best friend, and a couple million raindrops, they were married. Our memory cards were filled with one of our favorite elopements to date!

Seattle Courthouse Elopement | Pioneer Square and Seattle Municipal Courthouse Wedding

Christina and Colby had a Seattle Courthouse Elopement this winter, and it fit them perfectly. They chose to get married just before Christmas when Seattle and Pioneer Square were trimmed with holiday cheer. Christina and Colby wanted something small and intimate with just their closest friends. They hit the nail on the head! We met them downtown on a beautiful December day. It was cold, but the weather was clear. We all know how surprising that can be. Pioneer Square and Occidental Park are great spots for photos in Seattle. They get even better with the lights and holiday decor every winter season. We couldn’t resist suggesting they do photos there! It worked out flawlessly.

Christina and Colby had made the decision to get married at the Seattle Municipal Courthouse. The Seattle Courthouse is a popular location for weddings and elopements, and we were excited to photograph our first ceremony there. While it is a great location (with a great view) it gets even more special in December. Christina and Colby’s ceremony time was right after sunset. That perfect lineup of sunset and ceremony times only happens in the winter. We were able to photograph sunset photos with them on the roof. The view of Seattle from the roof at the Courthouse is spectacular. The view of Smith tower took center stage. Have a look at the photos and see why couples choose to get married at a courthouse in Seattle! After meeting the Judge (who was incredible) we made our way to a private room with an incredible view of the city lights, 20 minutes of nuptials and “I Do’s” later they were married, and we couldn’t be happier for them!

Fall Colorado Wedding | Intimate Mountain Elopement | Durango Colorado

Jenne & Robert’s fall Colorado adventure wedding in the mountains around Durango could not have been timed more perfectly. The first weekend of October saw peak aspen color and it was gorgeous. The rugged mountains dazzled with bright yellow when the sun hit them. Jenne and Robert planned an adventure wedding with their closest friends and family, and of course, their three adorable dogs. Their ceremony took place in a valley just outside of Durango, Colorado, with a gorgeous view of the surrounding mountains. Guests (ourselves included) were given a pin drop to navigate to to find the ceremony site – marked with a sign pointing towards a beautiful wooden arch. Jenne and her bridesmaids hid in the aspens just down the hill from the ceremony site. It was an ideal spot for some photos, and last minute notes in Jenne’s vow book. As the ceremony was about to start, Jenne’s father made his way to meet her while Jenne’s bridesmaids helped her along the small path to her “aisle”. Their ceremony was simple and sweet, with lots of happy tears, puppy kisses, and even a growler of beer. Proof that dogs should always be invited to ceremonies: when everyone cheered them on for their first kiss, their pups barked and howled right along with everyone. After the ceremony, we realized the sun was rapidly setting, so we stole Jenne and Robert away while their guests headed back to the ranch for the reception (and some tasty create-your-own burgers!) On our way into town the previous day, we had found a field with an amazing view of the mountains we knew we had to stop at. We couldn’t believe our eyes at how colorful the sunset was. Sometimes, it’s all being in the right place at the right time. I think we all had to tear ourselves away from the landscape, remembering there was a party to get to!

Olympic National Park Elopement | Seattle Wedding Photographers

Mariah & Steffen | Olympic National Park Elopement

When Mariah and Steffen first contacted us about their plans for an Olympic National Park elopement, we were stoked! We love Olympic National Park and we can think of no better place to say your I dos than among the giant trees. They planned to bring just their family and closest friends with them for their small, heartfelt ceremony in the forest. Everyone got ready at the cabins at Sol Duc Hot Springs, and they picked out a ceremony spot in the forest nearby. A moss covered tree made for the perfect natural arbor for their guests to gather around. After the ceremony we took Mariah and Steffen on a hike to Sol Duc Falls for portraits. They were up for anything, even in their wedding attire. During the hike, friends and family made their way back to Port Angeles for the woodland inspired reception. We made it back from our hike just in time to watch the sunset on the bluff. Just like their ceremony, the reception was simple and focused on the joy of their love for each other and sharing it with family and friends. And there was pizza, so there’s that. We so love being a part of these intimate elopements!

The One Where Jessica and Kevin Say I Do | A Rialto Beach Elopement on the Fourth of July

Mix together an elopement in Olympic National Park, a Friends inspired ceremony, and Fourth of July weekend, and you’ve got just about the best recipe for an awesome wedding we could ever think of! Jessica and Kevin came all the way from Colorado to Washington to have their wedding somewhere outdoors. After brainstorming a number of ideas, they settled on Rialto Beach in Olympic National Park. They said their vows at sunset on the beach, with Friends quotes galore. (Confession: I had never seen friends until last year. I’m sure glad for that Netflix binge now!) Their wedding was so laid back. The group walked down the beach until they declared the spot for the ceremony had been found. Everyone lined up, and a couple FaceTime calls were started, so family who couldn’t make the trip was able to be there. After the ceremony, the sky had just started to light up with sunset, while simultaneously fog started to descend onto the beach. A few cupcakes and a champagne toast later, we all headed to the nearby First Beach for celebratory fireworks. There was already one heck of a party happening at First Beach when we joined in on the fun, and everyone was launching off fireworks for us to photograph. It was an awesome way to cap off an already epic elopement.
