Intimate Coffee Shop Elopement

Here is an excerpt from my Storyboard Wedding Feature!


“It’s safe to say that the spike in elopements is palpable and understandable with the quarantine currently enacted. Couples all throughout the world are resulting to their plan B’s and we love that despite getting stripped of nearly all the bells and whistles of their original wedding designs, they’re making the most of what they have and truly honing in on what matters the most: love. Inspirations like this unique coffee shop elopement in Portland depict great alternatives and it’s great to give engaged couples some offerings to customize for themselves. 

In this Peachy Keen Coordination editorial shot by TMInspired at Kainos Coffee, our model couple selects their local coffee shop with its adorable vintage and whimsical interior and adds their own pop of color with the groom’s amazing mustard tuxedo jacket and the bride’s neutral, dried floral bouquet by Floral Sunshine. Instead of a cake, donuts make the ideal dessert selection in a quaint place like this. Paring things down sometimes isn’t ideal when it comes to wedding plans, but you can still make it absolutely memorable.” 


Megan & Maddie

I can’t get over how special Maddie and Megan are, how much they are loved by their family and friends but also how selfless they are. Just as Taylor and I were packing up for the night they wanted to make sure we were able to take some of their delicious to-go boxes.

Their wedding ceremony took place in Mukilteo Washington, which is just north of Seattle by 45minutes.


Megan & Maddie

Megan & Maddie are the sweetest souls you will ever meet. The had an intimate ceremony north of Seattle in the town of Mukilteo. I can’t wait to share their full day with you soon!


Amy & Justin

Amy and Justin are two of the kindest souls you’ll ever meet. Filled with so much joy and love for those who came to support them. Each person, walking along aside of them in each step they took together and throughout each milestone they reached. A beautiful summer day in West Linn, Oregon. Amy and Justin, surrounded by their family and friends, promised each other forever in the backyard of Amy’s family. The sun kissed ceremony and reception both took place is the gorgeous backyard. The wildflowers were grown by her parents in preparation for this day (and they were in full bloom!) In itself, I know this home holds so many special memories, and now this wedding day gets to be a part of the legacy, too.


Gina & Chris

It was my first time witnessing a Pyebaek ceremony. There was something profound watching the newly married couple perform a deep bow to their parents, and allowing the opportunity to receive wisdom and advice for marriage from those who raised them.
