Vows + Peaks Adventure Elopements

I fell in love with Olympic National Park the first time I visited 4 years ago. The different climates were exciting, beautiful and full of adventure. You had choices between rain forests, giant old trees or the beautiful coastal beaches surrounding the park. It was a beautiful place to a explore and an even better place to elope! When Jacqueline and Ryan reached out to me about capturing their elopement, I jumped at the opportunity to go back to this beautiful place!

We then walked over to Bovee’s Meadow, near Lake Crescent Lodge, where their family and friends were waiting for them for their intimate ceremony. They shared their vows and participated in an ageless Celtic cord ceremony, where they tied braided rope around their hands, tightly clasped together. Following their ceremony, they shared donuts and we then set out for our hike!

Our hike was one of the most magical and and whimsical places I’ve been in Olympic National Park! The wild forest was something out of a Dr. Seuss book. The lush and vibrant green moss surrounded us as we roamed around the forest. We stopped at every opportunity so Jacqueline and Ryan could embrace beneath the towering old growth forests for photos. Olympic National Park is known for some of the wildest natural growth in the United States and it’s woodsy feel gave you a sense of comfort as we hiked up to Marymere Falls on their elopement day.
