Liz & Ben both grew up hiking in the Olympics. They love daytripping, road tripping, hiking, and questing for all the beer. Like a lot of couples this last year, their original wedding day plans changed. They chose to keep their wedding date, and have an elopement ceremony with family and a few close friends. Their wedding day had colorful florals, fun moments with family and friends, and local beer. Honestly, I was super excited when Liz & Ben told me they were changing their wedding plans and having an intimate ceremony at Hurricane Ridge, because I love photographing in the Olympic National Park! The weather was WILD, rain, wind, sun, fog, clouds, we had it all. But weather doesn’t bother me, and it just meant we had the trails all to ourselves. After their vows were exchanged, and they had a beer toast with their guests, the celebration continued with a picnic before heading back down the mountain.
