I like to joke that I'm a delicate tropical flower because I'm so used to the stifling heat and humidity of the Southeast. I usually liiiive for summer. Flip flops and ice cream and skirts and sunshine are my jam.
Moving to the PNW was certainly an adjustment, especially in the winter. My first winter here, I decided it was too cold and fled to Vietnam for a couple weeks to get some respite from the dreary, cold Seattle winter.
This past winter, though, I decided to stick it out and find beauty in the cold. I dreamed up an edgy, dark winter elopement photo shoot and set out to find fellow vendors who could help make my vision come to life.
The photos below are the result of a six mile slog through snow with an absolutely amazing couple who totally rocked the wedding looks I'd been dreaming of. And ya know what, Seattle? Give me all your winter weddings, your winter elopements, your winter engagements. Because this tropical flower has acquired a taste for snow.
