Vow book at Lake Crescent

Something special about waking up before the sun and being in nature when no one else is around. That is how M + J chose to have their elopement at Lake Crescent. We arrived at the trail head just before sunrise and walked the Spruce Railroad Trail a bit until we found their ceremony spot. Including their pup was very important which is why we opted for this trail. M wore The played rock-paper-scissors to see who would say their vows first. After their sweet exchange of vows, we took some photos along the shores of the lake. Then we headed to our second location where they made coffee and fed each other a giant cinnamon roll on a dock on the lake. We ended their day by doing a little light hiking in the woods where they shared their first dance by a babbling brook.
