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!

It’s been crazy and unpredictable weather this Winter and so far, during our brief Spring here in Seattle!
Gratefully, we received a ‘rainbow gift’ of clear skies yesterday afternoon and were able to get Rik and Gina beautifully married in the lovely garden of The Willows Lodge in Woodinville.
Surrounded by their Mothers, Gina’s 2 children and Rik’s brother (from Florida!), we enjoyed a sweet and intimate ceremony and an immediate toast afterward in their suite.
Simply just the best and most inspiring and gracious couple…much happiness, Rik and Gina!

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.

For anyone who follows me, they know that The Willows Lodge in Woodinville is one of my most favorite venues in the Northwest for an intimate and small wedding ceremony and celebration.
On a crisp Winter day, Gina and Seth ‘eloped’ to Willows Lodge, with their sweet daughter and photographer.
We had their ceremony outdoors by a lovely water feature in the garden with photos afterwards.
Gina and Seth – much happiness to you!
I recently received word that Sally passed away.
Sally, so beautiful and loving, was the beloved dog for a wonderful couple who eloped to The Salish Lodge last March.
Sally was not only the flower girl, but ring bearer as well as canine witness.
Most of all, Sally was 17 years old. She lived a beautiful life with her people and leaves a great legacy of love and memories.
Forever and ever, Sally.
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!
The Willows Lodge in Woodinville is one of my favorite venues for a an elopement or a small and intimate ceremony. Time and time again, couples check into the beautiful property and are married, either inside the Lodge or somewhere in the beautiful garden, surrounding the Lodge.Karl and Bridgette snuggled in for two days and were married in a ceremony for “2” in the garden, in the presence of two witnesses.
Just them. Private. Personal. Perfect. Photo: www.jennygg.com
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!
It was happiness for me to share in Bill and Katy’s sweet, intimate and private wedding ceremony at a Seattle park! We found a huge and beautiful tree and with a few logistics to find best lighting, we shared in a romantic and beautiful ceremony, with personalized vows.Joined by their photographer and another witness, we all felt honored to be a part of Bill and Katy’s big day ~ a celebration of their years together and a lifetime moment that held great anticipation for the years ahead!
After almost 2 decades of loving relationship, two of the very best guys “eloped” to Seattle for their wedding ceremony on July 1st. As soon as I received David’s email inquiry, I knew I was going to love working with him and Scott. You’ve got to LOVE two men who take great care and time to coordinate all details of a small/intimate ceremony and evening celebration – done in all of the right ways.
Surrounded by a small group of their best people, David and Scott were married in a beautiful evening ceremony – we had reverence, great joy, laughter and a tear or two. And the next day, they left on a lifetime cruise to Alaska.David and Scott: you are such an inspiration to all of us!
