A moody Pacific Northwest elopement shoot literally among the clouds

National Park wedding

This amazing elopement shoot was giving all the moody Pacific Northwest vibes, taking place in Washington state in the Snoqualmie National Forest. From the hike up to the ceremony location, to the hike back down to a beautiful lake surrounded by mountains, this elopement shoot was full of the most adventurous and beautiful experiences. And it certainly didn't hurt that when the couple got to the top of the mountain, they were surrounded by PNW fog, giving every photo an ethereal vibe that can't be duplicated.

The foggy weather made it look as though they were literally amongst the clouds

To prepare, the couple hiked up to the top of a nearby mountain peak where they helped each other change and get ready. The heavy fog and clouds started rolling in, which made it look like they were literally in the midst of the clouds and sky. They exchanged their vows at the top of the mountain, with a stunning view of the lake below.

After the vow exchange, the couple hiked back down the mountain and explored the lake below. The lake has unusual features like random tree stumps that are scattered around. They played among the stumps and looked up at the mountain peak where they had just wed. They ended their adventurous elopement with a quick Jeep celebration and rode off to live happily ever after!
