A Seattle Elopement. A Sweet & Intimate Ceremony With The Best Witnesses!

Posted on August 23, 2019 by Annemarie

There are some ceremonies you remember, forever, because of the joy and the kindness.

Here is a sweet story. Adam and Lacey ‘eloped’ to Seattle from Oklahoma. 

I met them at their Snoqualmie Park, elated to get these 2 lovebirds married.

Earlier, they posted on Reddit that they needed a second witness (their photographer, Anita Nowacka, was the other witness).

Miraculously, a witness showed up! 

Her name was Kelly, she was fabulous and even came with a gift. Kelly offered her time and heart for the pure joy of doing something kind.

Thank you, Kelly!

Damn, We Are So Very, Very Married! Scott and Danielle Elope to Seattle, Washington!

Posted on July 13, 2019 by Annemarie

 

Elope Seattle Style!  Sometimes a tiny wedding is just the BEST.

It was so much fun to watch Scott and Danielle, and their joy immediately after they were pronounced husband and wife.

These two Sweethearts, in the presence of their witnesses, had an intimate and sweet ‘I Do for 2’ wedding ceremony, at a neighborhood park in Seattle, taking advantage of quiet on a weekday morning.

There is something so special about two people in love, who design their wedding day ‘their way,’  especially when it is all about ‘them,’ and their quest to honor and celebrate in a very intimate way.

With a wedding ceremony, there is no right or wrong.

For some couples, an intimate ceremony with a chosen few, or an elopement with witnesses, is truly the icing on the cake.

 

Kyle and Misa Elope at Volunteer Park, Seattle!

Posted on June 18, 2019 by Annemarie

One of my most favorite neighborhood parks, for an small/intimate wedding ceremony or elopement, is the lovely Volunteer Park.

Located in the Capital Hill neighborhood of Seattle, Volunteer Park is an exquisite place in nature that fully embraces celebrations of all kinds, including a lovely wedding ceremony.

It was my happiness to join Kyle and Misa for their wedding ceremony at Volunteer Park, surrounded by Kyle’s Parents and Step-Mother.  Bride Kisa’s people were all in China, Kyle’s two delightful Moms stepped up to love on Misa.

Winter in Seattle, Tiny Weddings and Elopements…

Posted on March 17, 2019 by Annemarie

I love the quiet time of Winter.  Just before the upswing of Spring, Summer and Fall, with weddings of all shapes and sizes, the Winter offers me the opportunity to often be with couples who have ‘tiny wedding ceremonies.’

So, I guess a tiny wedding ceremony could quality as an elopement, yes?

Oftentimes, on a crisp/cold and sunny day in the Seattle area, a lovely couple will make their way to a park, a friend’s home, their home, a hotel and enjoy a ‘ceremony for 2,’ with a few guests.

Earlier this week, it was my happiness to get Jung and Debbie all hitched up at the beautiful Volunteer Park in Seattle.

And on the same day, a few miles down the road, I met Michael and Sami Jo at ‘their place,’ and with a few friends looking on, we had a beautiful and intimate exchange of vows.

Just the best.

Seattle Wed! Michelle and Jorge Elope to Treehouse Point, Issaquah, Washington

Posted on February 20, 2019 by Annemarie

It was a true winter wedding day.  There was a mist of snow on the ground, the air was crisp and the temperature was very cold.

And snuggled into Treehouse Point, in Issaquah, Washington, was Michelle and Jorge, who ‘eloped’ to the Pacific Northwest, along with a small crew of their beloved family and friends.

We had ceremony outside.

Yes, it was very cold and there was so much joy in the air.

Michelle and Jorge created one of the most beautiful and intimate winter time ceremony arrangements (see photo), and shared their vows in a warm and loving circle of Beloved people.

Done.  Their Way.  A big ‘yea!’ to Michelle and Jorge…I wish this beautiful couple much happiness on their marriage adventure!

A Seattle Elopement, in Winter, 2019…

Posted on January 4, 2019 by Annemarie

There is truly something magical about two people, surrounded by a handful of people they love and care for, exchanging vows, in the crisp outdoors (another description for cold!) and/or inside, with dozens of lit candles.

Jorge and Michelle traveled to Seattle last month, with their closest and best family and friends, and were married in a circle of rose petals at Treehouse Point in Issaquah. The day was December. It was very cold outside. And when I approached Jorge about the location for all of this and found it was outside, I asked, ‘why?’

With a sly and loving grin on his face, Jorge said, ‘because she is savage!’

Congratulations to two beautiful people!

 

 

2 Beautiful Ladies. A Lovely Bed & Breakfast. An Officiant & Photographer. Perfect.

Posted on October 27, 2018 by Annemarie

It was my happiness to be with Kecia and Alice, on Thursday morning, as they celebrated their loving relationship, and said ‘I Do,’ in a ceremony that celebrated their spiritual beliefs, and one that honored their courage, heart and spunk.

This loving duo, eloped to Seattle from the East Coast, and found a waterview bed and breakfast in Burien.

The lovely Innkeeper,Penny, served as a Witnesss.  Their photographer (and 2nd witness!), Tom Ellis, captured the moment perfectly.

I cherish a loving couple who plans a ceremony for ‘2,’ just for them.

Like Kecia and Alice, ponder the possibility of creating a wedding day – with a few guests or more, that truly honors your loving relationship and preferences.

For more information on venues, locations and more, I’m a phone call, text or call away!

John and Katie “Elope” To Beautiful Seattle from West Virginia!

Posted on September 12, 2018 by Annemarie

On a sunny and gorgeous last day of August, we had the sweetest of wedding ceremonies at a hidden spot, overlooking the beautful Cascade mountain range in Snoqualmie, Washington.

Two of John and Katie’s friends, also flew in for this lifetime moment, and together, we shared in this couple’s loving relationship and got them all hitched up!

I love the happiness and intimacy of a tiny wedding ceremony. I appreciate it when a couple plans a wedding day that is truly about them, whether this is 2 guests or 200 people.

John and Katie, I hope you so enjoyed your honeymoon cruise to Alaska and I wish you much good fortune and love on your marriage adventure!

Jeb and Amanda, an Intimate, Sweet and Fun-Loving Seattle Wedding Day!

Posted on April 24, 2018 by Annemarie

When Jeb and Amanda pondered what they wanted for their wedding day, they found they desired to keep things intimate and true.

This meant surrounding themselves with friends who mean the world to them.  This meant bringing their sweet pooch along for the festivities.  And doing this outside in the chill and rain, because that’s often what Seattle is all about.

So, on a crisp and clear day, Jeb and Amanda led a parade down to the Seattle waterfront to say their ‘I Do’s.’  Their words were personal and their vows were sweet.

Simply, perfect in all ways.

Peter and Maja: An International Love Story and a Sweet Northwest Wedding!

Posted on April 6, 2015 by Annemarie

Maya and Peter.

For more than 7 years, they shared a loving and very inspiring relationship, living and working from different places around the globe.

On a sunny Saturday in March – in Woodinville, Washington – this beautiful, gracious and fun-loving couple came together for a sweet and poignant wedding ceremony, surrounded by Maja’s sister from Ireland and a few chosen “best people.”

The weather on their wedding day, March 28th, was beautiful in a crisp and chilly kind of way and perfect for an intimate ceremony outdoors in the garden at The Willows Lodge.

Peter and Maja – much happiness to both of you!
