Ashley + Peter | Bohemian Woodland Wedding {Kitsap Memorial State Park, WA}

Ashley and Peter set out on their wedding journey to create an organic, relaxed environment to enjoy with their closest friends and family members. They both grew up in Nevada, so they chose a venue that perfectly manifests the beauty of their new Washington home, Kitsap Memorial State Park. On the morning of their wedding, Pete got ready at a quaint little cabin in the park, while Ash spent the morning at an Airbnb with her girls. Ashley fittingly rocked Rue De Seine’s Ash Gown and we’re all convinced they designed it specifically for her. After the sweetest first look and couple’s portraits, they fetched their little black pug, Winston, for some special puppy portraits! Then they were off to wed among the trees with the most emotional exchange of vows. Just before dinner, Ashley surprised Peter with a beautiful slideshow of memories and a touching message from his grandparents. Then to finish off the most perfect wedding day, the newlyweds grubbed on some delicious food truck pizza, headed down to the beach for some sunset portraits, and danced the night away with all of their favorite people! 

Congratulations you two!

Nicole + Justin | Pinnacle Peak Adventure Elopement {Mt. Rainier National Park, WA}

Nicole and Justin eloped at Pinnacle Peak, a gorgeous hike at Mt. Rainier National Park. Justin used to be a ranger at Mt. Rainier so it is a very special destination to them. Their best friends came along for their special day and acted as their officiants. One of my favorite parts of the evening was at the very end of their ceremony, the fog came rolling in right in time for their first kiss as a married couple! It was so magical, I couldn’t believe the timing. Bravo, Mother Nature.

Janita + Jonathan | Intimate Mid-Morning Wedding at Vashon Field and Pond {Vashon, WA}

This maybe isn’t saying much, because all of my couples make me happy, but this wedding had me smiling from cheek to cheek the entire day. These two have the cutest relationship and their love blessed all in attendance to their intimate, family-oriented wedding day on Vashon Island. Janita described Jonathan as the Yang to her Yin, and that was apparent from the moment I met them. They complete eachother.

Congratulations Janita + Jonathan!

Joanna + Brian | West Coast Intimate Adventure Wedding {Big Sur, CA}

Joanna + Brian are without a doubt one of my favorite couples I have ever worked with. They ditched wedding tradition and made their day something truly unique. After getting ready at the Deetjens Inn, Jo met her groom at the end of the aisle under a grove of cypress trees, where they exchanged their vows, surrounded by their closest friends and family members. Then they spent the rest of the day meeting each of their loved ones at different locations along the coast, where they enjoyed some time together and gave them each a special hand written letter. Afterwards, they headed over to Alvarado Street Brewery for an evening of pizza and beer. It was such a beautiful, intimate day filled with love and laughter and I’m so grateful to have been there to witness it! #murphyme #justmurphied

Chelsie + Matt | Marymere Falls Elopement {Olympic National Park, WA}

Chelsie and Matthew, with their fur baby Archie by their side, set out last July for the Olympic National Park for the beginnings of their biggest adventure yet - marriage! They got ready at a rustic lake-house cabin with a beautiful view of Lake Crescent, took some photos with Archie (did I mention this dog has a faux-hawk? Such a cute boy!), then headed off to elope in the woods and explore the gorgeous Marymere Falls!

It was such an awesome day - every elopement I have the chance to be a part reminds me of how incredibly lucky I am to get to do what I do and experience the things I get to experience.

SO MUCH LOVE!

Amanda + Sean | Intimate Resort Wedding in Punta Cana {Majestic Elegance, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic}

Amanda + Sean are one of the sweetest and most genuine couples I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. They originally booked me for their Fall wedding in Seattle, and then a few months later, I got a pretty neat surprise: a phone call from them to let me know that they had decided to have an intimate, destination wedding in Punta Cana instead, and lucky for me, I got to join them!

We started the day with a sunrise “morning of” session to take a dip in the ocean and have some fun at the beach, as well as calm their nerves, and get some last photos as fiancés! Then they kissed goodbye, went back to their separate rooms and got ready for their big day, and the rest unfolded perfectly.

Congratulations, Sean + Amanda, and thank you for bringing me along for the ride!
