Grace & Antonio—Lake Quinault Lodge Elopement

Driving up to Lake Quinault feels like a scene from a movie. Down a winding little road off Highway 101, under arching firs dripping with moss, the gleaming blue water of Lake Quinault twinkling between the trees. The lodge is tucked alongside the road, with a little pull-through driveway and white mullioned windows with green shutters announce your arrival.

Grace and Antonio were married on the lawn in front of the lodge under a Washington rainshower. As soon as they had kissed and been announced as husband and wife, the rain subsided and we were treated to a few hours of beautiful spring sunshine!

Of course no Lake Quinault wedding would be complete without a walk in the rainforest. Right across the road from the hotel, we took a little path that wound through the woods under an arching canopy of moss and early spring growth. The ferns were still curled up in fiddleheads and the sun winked in and out through the rustling branches. I loved getting to play with the filtered light for Grace and Antonio’s forest portraits.
