hurricane ridge elopement with lots of moody florals
Intimate wedding in Olympic National Park. Need I say more? We absolutely adore intimate weddings. They are always so personal + unique - two of my favorite parts about any wedding. Karla + Philip came to the peninsula from Florida for this little dreamy wedding getaway. Karla had a beautiful vision that she trusted us with to create some stunning florals for. The colors were rich + moody, they suited the setting + the couple perfectly.
When I arrived at the lodge where they were all staying I noticed Karla’s sweet face poking out one of the windows. She had the most excited smile as she got ready for her day + saw the flowers arriving box by box. Presenting her with the bouquet was truly one of my favorite moments I’ve had in this job. She cried + smiled right away, Then she commented that it was the most badass bouquet she’d ever seen - I can’t think of a cooler compliment to receive! From there we went up to Hurricane Ridge to install the arbor florals for the ceremony. If you’ve ever been up there, you know the weather is very hit or miss. But not on this day, the mountaints glowed behind them as they said their vows.
After the ceremony the group returned to the lodge where a stunning Mae + Co Creative table awaited them. The reception was a lovely dinner party at one long table under twinkle lights + the stars! The centerpieces were a continuation of the lush + moody florals running all along the table. The cakes were another fav detail, not one but THREE all different with lush florals atop! It’s not often that I find myself wishing I was a guest, but this was certainly one of those times!
annnnnnnddddd, as if the rest wasn’t enough, they did more day after photos! The peninsula is such a stunning location - there are endless locations for pictures + exploring. Karla was one of the sweetest brides we’ve worked with + we will be swooning over this day for a long time!
