With Their ‘Crew,” Jeb and Amanda Elope to Seattle, a Beautiful and Perfect Day.

Posted on October 1, 2018 by Annemarie

There are so many places to elope in the Seattle and Puget Sound area.

Just like Jeb and Amanda, many couples choose a pretty place, close to downtown Seattle, because this offers the opportunity for one-stop shopping:  a lovely hotel, great restaurants, entertainment, and pretty places for a venue/location.

And then, there are the couples who head outside of the central Seattle area – a ferry trip and wedding (onboard) en route Bainbridge Island, a bed and breakfast in Gig Harbor, a stay at The Salish Lodge in Snoqualmie or the Willows Lodge in Woodinville, or perhaps even a snugglefest of a celebration at the Woodmark Hotel in Kirkland.

At the end of the day, an elopement, or small/intimate wedding ceremony and celebration, is about personal preference – doing it ‘your way’ and knowing that something small is really big.


Rick and Jeff: Celebrating a Decade+ of Partnership With A Sunrise Seattle Ceremony!

RickJeffIberfield  Rick + Jeff.

Accompanied by more than  dozen thrilled family and friends, these two wonderful guys from Texas “eloped” to Seattle to be married at sunrise in downtown Seattle on a very fine August morning.

I loved all of the special details that Rick and Jeff gave to their wedding day.

Not only were they attentive to their guests (many of whom made great effort to join them), but they were intentional about the location of their ceremony and the many small details that pulled together a beautiful life time moment.

Congrats to two very wonderful men!
