Austin + Andrea.
They eloped with their parents from the Idaho area and were married at high Noon this past Monday, on the warmest day of the year!
I so enjoy tiny weddings. Easy. Fun. Memorable. And for Austin and Andrea, celebrating their loving relationship in intimate fashion was “perfect” in all ways.
Congratulations to this young couple with a fierce love!

Lots of couples say, “let’s elope” and do it by the water!
If you are having your sweet and intimate wedding ceremony on a beach (i.e., there may be sand between your toes!), here are few tips:
1) No shoes/casual shoes – Depending on the weather and how casual you want to get, leave the fancy shoes at home and go barefoot or select an easy/casual shoe. Trust me, when you are walking on sand, heels don’t work!
2) Go For A Hidden Beach or Waterfront/View Area – Public beaches or parks are just fine and they are often very crowded during the summer months in Seattle. Seek out those hidden gems like Colman Park on Lake Washington or Hamilton Viewpoint Park in West Seattle.
3) Sign Your Legal Paperwork Before Your Ceremony – You most likely will want to take photos immediately after your vows and/or spend time with your Sweetie on the beach. Plan to pre-sign your legal documents when you first meet your Officiant on this day – your Officiant will sign afterwards making everything legal and this way, you won’t have to sign legal docs in the sand!
