Sunset Elopement At Mount Rainier | Tipsoo Lake

Jacque and Ben had the most amazing sunset elopement at Mount Rainier National Park! Their sweet and simple elopement day ended with an incredible sunset- and the mountain finally peeking out! There was stilll so much snow at Tipsoo Lake at the end of June but it made for incredible photos! Check out my guide to eloping in Mt. Rainier National Park for more inspiration!

Ceremony At Tipsoo Lake

J and B exchanged vows next to Tipsoo Lake. This lake has incredible wildflowers starting in July and epic views of Mount Rainier in the background! We were there at the end of June and still had so much snow! This is also an amazing location for fall colors in September and October. It’s easily accessible and can get pretty crowded in the summer, so if you’re thinking of eloping here, definitely plan for sunrise or sunset!

Whiskey Shots On The Bridge

After their intimate ceremony, J & B headed over to this cute bridge and we shared shots of their favorite whiskey! It is so important to include things like this in your elopement day- things that make you two you!

Sunset Portraits With Mount Rainier

We headed up the road for a better viewpoint of the mountain and were so lucky it started to peek out from behind the clouds! The weather at Mount Rainier is always unpredictable (even in the summer) so we were so excited to get to see it! They had their first dance as a married couple with the mountain and Tipsoo Lake in the background! They even smoked a cigar together while the sun was setting!
