Choosing to elope is a decision to be intentional. It’s a decision to be raw and real, and to focus on the love you share with your partner without any distraction. This July morning at Mt. Spokane for Andrew & Davids elopement was exactly that. Full of intent, full of love, and full of honesty.
We picked a beautiful location overlooking the Inland northwest where they committed their lives to one and other. The words they spoke were so beautiful and I honestly couldn’t keep myself from shedding tears along side them. I can’t express to you all enough how special moments like this are also for me. Knowing that two people have chosen me to be apart of such an incredibly private and irreplaceable moment in their lives is really something special.
After the ceremony we went to the iconic top of Mt. Spokane and took portraits of the two of them to celebrate their day. They made it official in the best way possible by laughing and frolicking through fields on a mountain – basically my favorite things right?
A common misconception about eloping is that it has to be just the two of you, and I am here to tell you that is simply not true. It can be however many people you’d like. Eloping has transformed into somewhat of a destination experience and it can be intimate even with 20 people surrounding you. Small events like this allow you to really spend the entire day together, actually interact with the guests you do invite, and be completely untraditional. Which in 2022, being untraditional is becoming more and more popular. And the end of the day, your day is about YOU.
If you are considering eloping or having a small event, please reach out. I am so familiar with all that comes with them, and being apart of them really makes my heart so happy. I am also ordained and happy to help you with that as well!
Choosing to choose each other is what is most important when it comes to getting married. Everything else is just an extra bonus.
