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!
This has honestly got to be one of the coolest spots for saying I Do…
(And love that beautiful dress from BHLDN!)

I can not even handle how beautiful this is! The tree is such an amazing example of creation! And her red hair in contrast to all the grey tones… Seriously, gorgeous photography, gorgeous day!
LOVE! An adorable couple and a beautiful location! I love how the ocean wind gently moves her red hair- dramatic and lovely!
The scenery is really stunning and the bride looks really pretty. Her hair especially standouts against all the grey too.
Swooning right now. This is making we want to elope in Washington! That tree and the bride and the groom and just everything! Absolutely beautiful.
Damn that’s beautiful! Is that tree still on the beach?? Haha. I’m a five hour drive from there!
Alayna, do you know what beach this is as I think I am going to go visit it and take some photos next week? I live in portland so am figuring its about 5 hours from me too….
