Glamorous City Elopement with Ashley + Aaron

So, you have decided to celebrate your love with an elopement! Woohoo! BUT you are not someone who dreams of scaling a mountain or driving into the middle of the desert. Your adventure elopement is colored with bright city lights, intimate evening cocktails, and hidden restaurant gems. This is exactly the vibe my couple was going for during this glamorous city elopement! Aaron and Ashley wanted their experience to feel intimate and special. The day was perfect as they were joined by their closest family and friends.

Their ceremony was on the rooftop of the Seattle Four Seasons overlooking the city skyline and the Puget Sound. It was truly magical. We then explored downtown Seattle for sunset portraits. This glamorous city elopement was the perfect combinations of urban chic and PNW charm. We finished the evening with an intimate candlelit dinner with twinkle lights floor to ceiling, overlooking the Seattle Skyline.

Connection Matters

Ashley and Aaron welcomed me in as a part of the crew from the first moments I shared with them. Having the opportunity to connect with my couples before the day of their event is something I truly cherish. This connection also relieves any nerves or awkwardness that one might feel on their special day!

Witnessing the incredible bond that Ashley shares with her mother and sister was my favorite part! Having a small ceremony allows the bride and groom to feel more present in each moment. This always shows in the final images!! Ashley’s kids were such a beautiful addition to her ceremony! They diligently and joyfully prepared to watch their mom marry her very best friend. 

I hope you enjoy this wonderful love story! Having the privilege to document these precious moments in time is something that I will never take for granted. Where would your dream elopement be? Are you a city person or more comfortable in nature? Let me know in the comments!

Elopement ready?

I would love to be your elopement photographer and guide!

My superpower is putting people at ease; whether that's behind the camera or on their elopement day solving problems calmly under pressure. I am passionate about building relationships with the people I work with.
