Welcome TO THE

As seen on Wedding Sparrow This elopement inspiration is what made me fall in love with elopements and I knew I wanted to share this shoot here on Elope Northwest. Smith Rock State Park is one of my absolutely favorite places to elope in Oregon. The dramatic landscape and desert vibes make it such a […]

  Due to rockfall, most of the the Multnomah-Wahkeena Falls Loop trail system sadly is currently closed. From the Multnomah Falls trailhead, the trail remains open until Benson Bridge. From the Wahkeena Falls trailhead, the trail is open for 1.5 miles and is¬†closed at the intersection with the Devil’s Rest trail. We hope to see […]

Hiking

Todays blog is a little different then others. While I’m usually sharing guides and places you should go and see, today I’d thought I’d share some photos from our trip a few months ago to Whidbey Island. I spent the majority of my childhood living on this island and I got to show my husband […]

If you love waterfalls, Oregon does not have a shortage of them. With over 200 waterfalls state wide picking a hike can be overwhelming sometimes. If you’re looking for a waterfall hike outside of Mt. Hood we highly recommend Ramona Falls! This hike is a little over 7 miles round trip and is a peaceful […]

Eloping doesn’t mean quite the same as it used too. We are long past the days of secretly running off to the courthouse to get married, but are now embracing planned out adventure weddings in beautiful locations across the country.

  Cutting a Christmas tree in the woods sounds like something straight out of a Hallmark Christmas movie, but out at Mt. Hood it’s a reality that can make all your Christmas dreams come true. For only a five dollar permit you can cut up to a 12 foot tree, and considering the prices of […]

On a misty, fall afternoon we meet with Hannah and Corey Coldwater Lake at Mount St. Helens. Though St. Helens is not as tall as she once was, the area continues to regrow with new life. The leaves were starting to change, and the air was crisp on a late, September afternoon. Hannah wore yellow […]

With over 100 waterfalls in the state of Oregon it can be overwhelming deciding on a hike. You really can’t go wrong with any of them, but we have a few favorites we’re planning on sharing. We’re starting that list off with¬†Tamanawas Falls near Mt. Hood. I actually learned about this falls this summer when […]

Looking to elope, but not sure where? More and more couples are trading in the dreams of a traditional wedding for a wild and free elopement, and for good reason! With the rising costs of weddings and more couples paying for their own big day, it’s not only a more affordable option, but removes a […]
