Adventure Elopements

Wonderful how completely everything in wild nature fits into us, as if truly part and parent of us. The sun shines not on us but in us. The rivers flow not past, but through us, thrilling, tingling, vibrating every fiber and cell of the substance of our bodies, making them glide and sing. The trees wave and the flowers bloom in our bodies as well as our souls, and every bird song, wind song, and tremendous storm song of the rocks in the heart of the mountains is our song, our very own, and sings our love. - John Muir

Love is an adventure - why not have your wedding be one too?

As a hiker, friend of trees, devotee of ocean waves, and all-around lover of nature, there are few things I love more than weddings in wild places. Nature is of course a magnificent backdrop, yet it's much more than that. It speaks to us of our place in the order of things - not just in nature, but of it. It speaks to the wild adventure that is loving someone with our whole heart


If your vision is getting married up near the clouds on a mountaintop, or under a cathedral of evergreens, or next the the thundering waves of the Pacific, you've come to the right place. I've journeyed all over the Pacific Northwest and beyond with countless intrepid couples. Are you next?


So Many Places to Love...

I wanted an officiant who knew what sacred space was, who knew how to hold it and create it. Arissa was that officiant, and we are so delighted with our luck in having found her.
