PNW Mountain Elopement

This PNW mountain elopement is everything I love about the Pacific Northwest!!! The combination of pine trees and mountains made for the perfect backdrop for Nicole & Brian to promise forever!

Two years ago Nicole & Brian were both in extreme need of the best ice cream in town! When they both showed up alone at the same ice cream shop Brian noticed her (how could you not?!) and asked her to go on a walk while they ate their ice cream! They were having great a convo and everything was going good… then Brian realized his cone had been dripping on him the entire time!! He was so wrapped up in Nicole he hadn’t even noticed! LOL!! After waiting the fullllll 3 days he called Nicole and it’s been cookies and cream ever since 😉 

These two lovers ditched the white beaches of their home in FL and ran off to the mountains to elope!! I lovee when my couples do what is right for them! They invited their closest family members to their PNW mountain elopement and it was perfect! They were up for anything – including hiking up to an amazing viewpoint on the mountainside!!

Their first look was the absolute sweetest! Nicole & Brian were all smiles as they saw each other for the first time that day before exchanging vows! Nicole wore the most stunning wedding gown and her hair was in romantic waves! They both got choked up exchanging vows but couldn’t help laughing too!! Such an emotional ceremony!! We took a couple family portraits on the mountainside before adventuring around for some fun bride & groom portraits!! These two kept each other smiling and giggling the whole day! They were a joy to be around and I am so grateful they chose me to capture their elopement!!

I’m forever obsessed with mountainside elopements!! Check out another adventurous elopement here!!
