When these two told us they wanted to elope in Olympic National Park, we had a lot of awesome location suggestions! But when Jen came across the Mount Storm King trail, she fell in love with the crazy views of Lake Crescent. This hike is nuts, but so are the expansive views of the mountains, […]

Okay, so we did not expect this much snow in late June up at the North Cascades! In past years, the snow is usually cleared from most of this trail (or at least the road is plowed, so you’re able to access higher up). But this past year, the snow remained in the Mount Baker […]

When Sarah and Brantlee first reached out to us and mentioned Glacier National Park, we were so excited! We had been wanting to start transitioning Venture to Elope to Montana for awhile, and it was so exciting to book our first Montana elopement, especially a Glacier National Park elopement! It made it even better because […]

When we started planning Matt and Caitlin’s elopement day with them, they wanted two very contradictory things. Caitlin really wanted desert vibes: expansive canyon views, redrock, arches, etc. Matt loved that, too, but he also really wanted some mountains and greenery. So, we settled on an epic Moab, Utah elopement to get both desert canyon […]

This day began in the early morning! These two aren’t usually morning people and didn’t exactly want to do a sunrise adventure, BUT they were still up at the wee hours of the morning getting ready for their big day. We met them at their Airbnb in the town of Packwood, where Loretta was getting […]

When we first chatted with these two, we knew we were going to be great friends… and surprise, surprise we are! We couldn’t help but get excited for their day and to finally meet them in person! Their Lake Crescent elopement was absolutely perfect, but we want you to hear it from them: “Look no […]

So, this couple holds a really special place in our hearts! They aren’t the first couple to book us as Venture to Elope, but they were our first intimate wedding of 2021 as a new business! They completely trusted us, and we couldn’t have launched VTE without them and their support. We often hang out […]

Have you ever wondered what sunrise looks like at Mount Rainier? Look no further! Here is one of the most epic sunrise hiking elopements at Mount Rainier. We started bright and early at the Paradise Visitor Center on the west side of the mountain. The bride, groom, and a few of their friends all made […]

One of the best fire lookouts with views of Rainier is Mount Fremont. This hike is roughly 5.6 miles roundtrip and is an out and back hike. You gain a bit of elevation along the way, but it’s pretty manageable compared to a lot of the other hikes around Mount Rainier. It begins at the […]

These two have been through so much together to get to this point. They hit a lot of bumps along the way with planning their big day, and ended up driving all the way from Indiana to Washington in just a weekend (instead of flying). When we met up with them at The Enchantments trailhead, […]

This beautiful day was part of a workshop that Hannah did back in April of 2021! It was an incredible experience to meet other photographers and get creative. Hannah was able to direct and pose a ton of the photos you’ll see below, which was awesome! This is what your elopement portraits could look like […]

One of the best Mount Rainier elopement locations is hands down the fire lookouts! The hikes are usually a bit challenging with steep elevation gains, but the views are always 100% worth it… I think these two will agree! We started their full day adventure with a hike to a small lake in the Mount […]
