Mountains, adventure, a beautiful lake, family, and the best dogs – it was the perfect recipe for Jon and Cait’s Big Day! Jon and Cait’s intimate Washington elopement was so much fun. There is something special about gathering with a small group of friends and family to celebrate your wedding day. Plus, it gives couples more flexibility when selecting a location, and you know we are all about traveling to a unique spot for the “I do’s”!
Jon and Cait love the outdoors and we wanted to capture that in their pictures. They spend a lot of time backpacking, camping, and exploring in their geared up 4Runner. We had so much fun shooting with their dogs and we even did a little off-roading for some epic portraits.
When we travel, Michael and I often shoot together! While I’m generally the one managing all the day to day operations of Carrs & Co, when we are away I grab a camera and flip the switch to the second shooter. I like to think I’m pretty good and we always have fun!
Like so many couples in the last year, Jon and Cait had to flex, change their plans multiple times, and get creative in order to celebrate their love. And they did a fabulous job! The location, decor, dress and food were all spectacular.
Actually, let’s pause and talk about the food. We have eaten a lot of wedding food and it is rarely amazing. How can it be? Serving individual plates for 200+ people is really hard to pull off. But in a small intimate setting like this, you can feast on some amazing dishes, and boy did we feast! Check out Swiftwater Cellars, if you’re in the area or need catering.
Congratulations to Jon + Cait, we cannot wait to meet up on the road soon!
