Olympic Peninsula Beach Elopement: Chelsea + Zack

La Push Elopement

Chelsea + Zack flew all the way from Nashville to the remote Washington coast to tie the knot  – just the two of them, and two friends to officiate and witness their celebration. As their talented photographer, Ryan Flynn, puts it: It was a refreshing way to get back to focusing on the point of a wedding – beginning a marriage – yet without forgetting about style and looking good!

The weather at Olympic National Park in La Push, Washington is notorious for being unpredictable – to put it mildly. The day before, there was a storm strong enough to push a colossal tree trunk down the beach. But the next day, that ended up being the very tree where Chelsea + Zack said their vows! Since C + Z had never been to Washington, their celebration was a major adventure. Chels says, It was so awesome to have such an intimate ceremony in a gorgeous new place!
