Posted on June 20, 2016 by Annemarie

jenny andrew photoIt’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.
