Fairytale Cottage Elopement - Washington Elopement Photographer
Dreamy cottage elopement in the forests of Western Washington.
Couples dream of having that fairytale wedding...these two took it to a whole new level. They rented this dreamy cottage that could've come straight out of a Disney movie. It was actually hand built as a hobby and is now rented out for anyone who wants to feel like royalty for a bit.
Just because you opt to elope doesn't mean you have to lose your "fairytale wedding" vision. Your elopement can look however you want. Extreme adventure, easy going adventure, or just relaxing at your vacation rental. It can look as traditional or nontraditional as you want. Check out my other blog post about wedding traditions you can ditch.
A good vacation rental can really elevate your elopement experience. A beautiful location can mean less moving around at the start of your day, privacy, and convenience. Some vacation rentals even let you host a ceremony on property. Of course, always check with the owner and clearly explain how you want to use the property.
These two started with breakfast together and getting ready with their pup, Penny. We spent the rest of the time exploring the property and enjoying an easy going day. Your elopement doesn't need to be elaborate and jam packed. Just time with you and your new spouse doing whatever you want.

"This is a long overdue review for Miki, and to summarize, we couldn't be happier with our photos and our whole experience! We got married in July 2021. Miki gave us great advice on where to go based on what we were looking for. She was able to find places that gave us exactly the what we were looking for - great views/backdrops, easily accessible, not crowded, and even a lot of dog friendly options! She was very available for communication prior to the elopement and we could definitely not have found as great of locations without her.
"As for the day of, she was everything you could want in a photographer - punctual, prepared, friendly, etc. We were worried about feeling rushed, but Miki made sure things went at a comfortable pace. She had some great suggestions, and incorporated our ideas as well. As for the photos - WOW! We are just obsessed. We have so many gorgeous pictures, it's hard to pick a favorite. So happy we found Venturing Vows!"
