I recently went on a backpacking trip near Leavenworth, WA to one of the most coveted campsites in all of Washington. Although, backpacking in this area is available by permit only, day hikes are available to all.
High Rock Lookout, right outside of Rainier National Park, has all the perks of eloping inside the park with out the need of a permit, park entrance fees, or the crowds. This hike boasts of 360 degrees of jaw dropping views, dramatic cliff sides, the perfect view of Rainier, and access to the historical fire lookout in case of inclement weather .
There is a new wedding venue in town — In Chehalis, WA to be exact. Gathering Grace Farm is on a picturesque farm, complete with a barn, forest, and large front yard that is perfect for ceremonies and parties into the night. The house itself is full of character. It boasts a large kitchen and five bedrooms — which is perfect if you’re looking for a place to stay before your big day.
Last week you heard my perspective of Jordan's proposal to Shae. This week you get the treat of hearing it from the bride to be, herself, followed by their riverside engagement photos in Spokane.
I’ve been dying to shoot at Diablo Lake, ever since my first visit there, over a year ago! Diablo Lake is known for its turquoise water and I love that it has the look of an adventure session without the effort of hiking to get there. It’s got the most amazing viewpoint, and it’s only a few steps past the parking lot.
