I am not sure I can put into words how amazing it was to be part of Emily and James Pacific Northwest Elopement. When I first met with them they described a small ceremony with a larger reception nearby but expressed that their hearts were wanting something small. And so when Emily reached out to me that they decided to have a simple elopement with their parents on the beach I knew it was the right choice for them and was so excited to get to be part of it. We started off the day with getting ready photos of Emily at The Ballard Inn with her parents and close friend. She had Floral Mountains make her a gorgeous headpiece to top off her attire. From there I headed over to James to get a few getting ready photos of him. And after that we went to a little spot on the beach that Emily and James had picked out. It was raining but neither of them cared and were simply excited to be getting married. Everyone braved the weather and they had just the perfect little intimate ceremony that of course ended in tears! After that everyone toasted their new marriage and they cut their gorgeous cake by LUC Custom Bakery. This was followed by photos with their family and then photos of the couple. The weather blessed us with some gorgeous sunshine at the end as well.
