Josh + Paige | Columbia River Gorge Elopement

One of my highlights from 2017 was this elopement in the Columbia River Gorge at the end of August.

Paige and Josh traveled all the way from West Virginia to get married in this beautiful area. Lucky for them this was right before the devastating wildfire that consumed a lot of the Columbia River Gorge in September! Everything about this day was perfect. The weather, the location, the vows, the sunset (that liiiiight). The day started and ended the best way possible- with a shot of Crown. Who needs wedding cake when you've got liquor, amiright? 

Paige is a wonderful human with the most beautiful tattoos. Seriously, I should make it a practice to just get whatever tattoos I want done at the parlors she goes to. Her dress was gorgeous, and perfect for this woodland elopement. Josh is a big sweetheart who is head over heels in love with his bride. The intimacy of an elopement was perfect for them to be totally focused on what was really important-- spending their lives with one another. They did have one guest- Paige's mom came all the way from Japan! In the end it was the perfect day for this perfect couple, and I couldn't have been more thrilled to have documented this day for them.
