this way to adventure

If you'd rather say your vows on top of a mountain than have hundreds of people staring at you as you walk down the aisle, you're in the right spot.

START YOUR ADVENTURE

Helping nature-lovers say "I do" in the Washington Wilderness

ANYTHING BUT "TRADITIONAL"

Your elopement day should have NO LIMITS.
Your wedding day is about celebrating the two of you, not anyone else, so why would you spend it doing anything other than what makes you happiest? 

Imagine your BEST DAY EVER.

What does it look like? What activities are you doing? Are you hiking to the top of your favorite peak? Sipping champagne at the top of a fire lookout?

There is NO reason why you shouldn't create your wedding day the same way. Picture your epic adventure wedding experience, completely unique to the two of you. You show up and have the time of your lives, and I'll document your day that's unlike any other.

My goal is to make sure that couples who love our wild areas are able to create a wedding experience that feels authentic and true to themselves in the areas they connect with. I want to be your adventure elopement experience creator. I'd love to get to know you better and help plan the most epic wedding day ever!

i'M SO STOKED YOU'RE HERE!
i'M jANELLE, YOUR NEW ADVENTURE BUDDY.

Hey there!

We'd vibe together if...

  • You'd rather ditch tradition and embrace adventure on your wedding day
  • You want your adventure wedding experience to be intentional and meaningful
  • You believe that all hikes should be followed by a good meal and an even better beverage (I'll never say no to a burger and beer!)

Your wedding day adventure, exactly how you want it.

No holds barred.

why adventure elopements?

Your wedding day is so much more than just a party or a "show" you put on for hundreds of people. It's an adventure — a day full of memories, doing exactly what makes you happy and nothing else.

I truly believe that saying your vows in the beauty of the great outdoors, surrounded by a place you love and connect with, is one of the coolest things you can do on your elopement day. Where would you go if you put no limits on this day?

"Janelle was such a blast to work with. My partner and I had never gotten photos done professionally, and we both were nervous about it being awkward with posing etc. Janelle made this so incredibly easy. Instead of posing, it was so natural and fun. She encouraged us to be authentically us and act as if she wasn’t there. She helped us figure out different poses, and was super good at instructing when we needed, and that was so reassuring. She helped us with location, and we did multiple different spots! The photos turned out amazing, and we had so much fun working with her. Would absolutely do it again."
