We're in love with this elopement story by Guest Blogger, Nicole. Take a peek at her romantic outdoor ceremony and swoon over how she wore our bridal dress with a clever "something blue." ♥
Patrick and I met in FL through mutual friends back in the 2008 and from that moment we spent the rest of our days together. After dating for three years Patrick proposed and shortly after we relocated back to my home state of NJ. There were several trials and tribulations that contributed to us both putting off making our decision on where we would get married that would "keep everyone happy" regarding location/travel.
We had a vacation planned to visit Seattle in November 2012 when the idea occurred to us. We should just elope while we're in WA state! We did some research and found the perfect venue to hold our private elopement. It was called TreeHouse Point in Issaquah, WA. This place is a sight to see with towering trees draped in green moss and cozy tree-houses. Our elopement package included an officiant who perfectly personalized our ceremony, an amazing photographer, a talented florist who through emailing photos created my beautiful bouquet and a one night stay inside the treehouse of our choice. The main house was even a bed and breakfast! It was just the most romantic place.
Being that it was just the two of us there were no distractions, no worrying about if everyone else was happy just Patrick and I gazing deeply into each others eyes as we read aloud our own vows. What a perfect start we had, we wouldn't change a thing. Our wedding under the trees was simply romantic and absolutely unique.
With less than one month to prepare I was on a mission for the perfect dress. I had seen Ruche's bridal collection and adored it, but I was skeptical about ordering my wedding dress online. So I continued to look for something similar in stores and continued to come up empty handed. Nothing compared to Ruche's vintage accents and attention to detail, so I took the plunge and placed my order and boy was I happy I did. Ruche had exactly what I was looking for, it fit beautifully and I couldn't have been more pleased.
