The Cedarbrook Lodge is one of my most favorite venues for an elopement in the Puget Sound area. Simply, it’s a perfect spot for an “I Do” for 2.
Located a few minutes from Sea-Tac airport, this gorgeous property is situated in a nearby neighborhood.
Surrounded by the most beautiful landscaping and gardens, couples enjoy the value they receive from booking an elopement package at Cedarbrook Lodge. And no, I don’t get a kick-back for all of this, just really happy guys and gals!
On one fine day last month, Darren and Carlene said “I Do” on a warm Friday evening, in the garden, with a champagne toast afterwards. And with great anticipation, they boarded a boat the following day to Alaska.
Simple, easy and no crazy. Perfect.
When I walked through the door and first met Harold and Terri, I said to myself, “yes, I so like these people!”
This lovely couple of more than 20 years, traveled down from Canada to be married at the home of dear friends in Bothell on a very sunny and warm afternoon in late May.
I love home weddings. They are easy, they are fun and the intimate atmosphere helps remind all of us what is important more than anything on a wedding day: the love and devotion of two people.
We had sunshine, we had wind, we had rain – and we had a lot of LOVE!
On Friday evening, May 12th, the sweetest couple exchanged the sweetest vows at one of my most favorite parks, Snoqualmie Point Park in Snoqualmie, WA.
In the presence of their parents, Cameron and Alison, who have known each other since Kindergarten, exchanged vows and rings…in an intimate and personal lifetime moment. Such happiness!
One of the best ‘deals’ for an elopement in the Seattle area is The Willows Lodge in Woodinville.
Many of my couples love the ease of the “I Do for 2” package which includes a wonderful room/overnight, lovely amenities and if you need it, 2 witnesses (which is a big deal for some couples).
Benjamin and Rebecca took advantage of all of this goodness and were sweetly married at The Willows Lodge on April 19th, surrounded by 6 people who mean the most to them. Happily, the rain held off and we had their ceremony at the little waterfall grotto, which is a favorite among couples. And what a happy, happy ending and kiss!

What a crazy weather weekend in Seattle!
Rain, wind, ice, snow and cold…and nothing was going to keep me from getting Justin and Caroline from being beautifully married yesterday, Seattle’s official ‘Snow Day 2017!”
Happily, the love people at Salty’s on Alki Restaurant kept their promise to host Justin and Caroline’s intimate ceremony and wedding reception.
With the restaurant all to ourselves, we got Justin and Caroline beautifully married, surrounded by Justin’s parents and family from Texas and New Mexico and Caroline’s Mother and and family from France.
Love! Beautiful photo: www.jennygg.com
This holiday time of year, weddings at home are big.
Rather than venturing out to a venue, bed and breakfast or boutique hotel, many couples opt to invite a few close family and friends to their home for an intimate ceremony and celebration during the holiday season.
Diane and Jim were married at their home in Woodinville.
Surrounded by very happy family and friends and their two dogs, these two lovebirds did things their way, easy and fun.
Believe it or not, it’s amazing how many couples get married at the end of the year. There must be something about the twinkling lights and egg nog!
There are precious moments in life that that are just truly wonderful. This past Saturday, I had the happiness of joining Brian and Jamie for their intimate ceremony at Gasworks Park in Seattle, surrounded by their family…and four fur kids!With a permit in hand for a beautiful space on the water at Gasworks, we gathered for a beautiful and intimate exchange of personal vows and the sharing of a sweet lovely story.
And after a week of crazy weather, the sunshine and warmth on Saturday afternoon was icing on the cake.
Brian and Jamie – wishing you great happiness on your marriage adventure!
While they could have technically and fully “eloped,” Jamie honored her parents request to be present at their wedding ceremony. So, yesterday, on the 4th of July – a day with great personal meaning ~ Jamie married the love of her life, Justin, in the backyard of her childhood home in Maple Valley.Surrounded by her parents, sister and a couple of close family members, Justin and Jamie exchanged vows and rings.And Justin and Jamie did things right. A beautiful dress. A handsome suit. Pretty flowers.And most of all, a wonderful photographer to capture all of this goodness Simple, easy and perfect.
It’s summertime in Seattle and a popular city for an elopement…not only for couples who live and love in the Pacific Northwest but for loving couples from all around the country. As we move into July and August, the best months for weather in Seattle, most couples opt to elope outdoors, choosing a park, waterside vista or even a boutique hotel or bed and breakfast.
To elope, you need the following:
- Your happy selves!
- 2 witnesses over the age of 18
- A valid Washington State Marriage License
- A lovely Officiant
For more information or to talk about possibilities, call Annemarie at 425 922 1325.

Cynthia + Nori. Married at their home in Auburn on a crisp April Saturday morning, with Cynthia’s parents as witnesses. When I arrived, Nori was looking handsome in his suit. And Cynthia was absolutely gorgeous in her gown and accessories.We took time to sweetly celebrate their loving relationship and the anticipation they both share for the future. And I loved how Nori had to say a few beautiful words of appreciation to Cynthia just before they sealed their wedding ceremony with a kiss! Again, what is big is really small. What is small is really big.
