washington elopement packages

intimate wedding + elopement packages for Western Washington

if Olympia, WA is calling your name...

you answer.

Are you dreaming of the type of landscape only Washington state can offer you? When you picture your perfect elopement, do you see mountainscapes around you, mossy trees, iconic wildflowers? Or even the view of your favorite city behind you? You just can't go wrong here!

This is my corner of the Pacific Northwest that I call home. I'm a recent transplant from Florida, which means I'm able to see this region's magic with fresh eyes and help you design a day that you love using the natural beauty around us.

These packages are for intimate weddings and elopements, which can be a lot of things, but the easiest way to define that is with under 25 guests. Beyond that, you can use your imagination! A hike, a helicopter tour, an intimate picnic, a tiny raging party, a food tour of the city, a quiet cabin retreat...

I'll help you plan your dream day in Washington– just reach out and let me know what you're into!
