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.
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!’
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.

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.
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.
They traveled from Oregon to be married on a lovely Sunday afternoon in Seattle, choosing Alki Beach for their elopement.
Joined by two friends – or known formally for this wedding day as the “photographer” and “best man,” Cody and Emmy exchanged personal words and vows on an Alki dock and celebrated with a dinner at Salty’s on Alki.
After a lot of life experience and so much history, this beautiful couple was married in a sweet and intimate wedding ceremony at the Willows Lodge in Woodinville.
Taking advantage of the Lodge’s wonderful “I Do For 2” elopement package, Jeremy and Kay snuggled into this beautiful place – and because of lovely late Winter weather, they were married in a beautiful garden on a lovely March day!
