A romantic elopement in Southwest Washington at the Skamania Stone House by Katy Weaver

Erin and Joe didn’t want a traditional wedding. They planned to elope in the stunning Columbia River Gorge with just a few close friends and family present, and take a bunch of photos along the river as well as in the forest.

Oregon and Washington had other plans though. The day of their elopement was right in the middle of some of the worst forest fires the state has ever seen.

But it didn’t stop us. We found locations away from the flames and used the smoke to create a beautiful eerie effect (which she totally loved) instead of feeling down about it.

It was a whirlwind of a day but I loved everything about it. Erin’s bouquet by Swoon Floral Design was to die for and I LOVED her fur accent and jewelry. Plus the romantic woodsy beauty of the Skamania Stone House fit everything so well.

Congratulations Erin and Joe!
