Last year, I got an email from Leslie along the lines of this: We’re flying up to the Gorge for the Dave Matthew’s concert, and we want to elope. We live in Florida, and we don’t know much about the area, but we want beautiful photos.
You know how much I love the Gorge, and I was thrilled to photograph Leslie & Drew’s elopement at Cave B Winery and Inn. They camped at the concert, and walked over to the winery to elope. We spent an hour taking photos all over the grounds, drinking a couple glasses of wine (them, not me. I’m going to have to stop by there for a glass now that I’m not pregnant!) and admiring the views. As the sun started to set, they got married under the grapes at the Piazza, and we took a few more golden hour photos before they went back to the Gorge for a concert.
Boom. Elopements are the best, I want more of them in my life.
Special shout out to Esther at Special Touch Florist, here in Spokane. She and Leslie coordinated on the flowers, and then I brought them with me to the elopement! :)
