An intimate adventure elopement on the Olympic Peninsula featuring three stunning locations
Logan & Kelly reached out to me in February of 2022, hoping to have an elopement on the Olympic Peninsula in April of the same year. They planned to get married at the courthouse in Seattle, and then celebrate with a weekend exploring Olympic National Park and celebrating their newlywed glow! I knew when they mentioned their experience thru-hiking the Colorado trail that we would be a great match for their adventurous elopement day.
A stress-free, adventurous springtime elopement
Logan & Kelly knew that they wanted to celebrate without any stress or rules, while incorporating their love for the great outdoors into their day. What better way than to explore three gorgeous locations on the Olympic Peninsula?

Embracing all that an elopement day can throw at you
Every elopement day is bound to have some wildcards. The misty Washington weather was no match for Logan & Kelly’s spirits, though! A little drizzle is no surprise here on the Olympic Peninsula, but we certainly didn’t expect this next part. As we were about to leave our first location to head back to the cabin, three wet, muddy dogs emerged from the nearby bushes at the trailhead and helped themselves to Logan & Kelly’s warm car! All three of us were so in shock and completely losing our minds laughing. It was all I could do to snap a few shots in between gasping for breath at the hilarity of the situation. Ever feel like you’re in a sitcom? This was definitely one of those moments!
Exploring Washington’s rocky coastline at sunset
Logan & Kelly finished off their day with two stunning Olympic National Park elopement locations: Rialto Beach and Ruby Beach. The dramatic sea stacks of both beaches called to them, so we decided to explore both on their elopement day! It’s so important to remove all barriers when planning the elopement day of your dreams. This couple did exactly that.
As the sun set and the tide started coming in, Logan & Kelly wandered Ruby Beach with lanterns in hand and enjoyed the last remaining light from their adventurous spring day.
