Pacific Northwest Rustic Mountain Top Wedding (14)

This breathtaking mountaintop wedding comes to us from Jenny Ostenson Photogrpahy, based in Puyallup, Washington! Here’s Leah, the lovely bride, to tell us more:

After dating for 3 years, Aaron proposed while we were hiking in San Bernardino Forest. He wanted to find a beautiful lookout point but we never made it and I kept wanting to turn around because we had been hiking for hours. So finally, we stopped in a little clearing of trees and he got down on one knee and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. He gave me the ring that had belonged to his grandmother that she wore for the more than 50 years she was married to his grandfather.

See more after the cut!

As soon as we started planning our wedding we knew two things: we wanted to be married outside and we wanted to be fully present in every moment of the day. We wanted an intimate ceremony where we could feel relaxed and really appreciate the significance of the moment. As a result, we decided to get married in Mt. Rainier with just our families and a couple of close friends and then have a reception later with everyone else we loved. The best decision we made was to be flexible with the idea of what makes a “wedding” and to pick the elements that were truly meaningful to us instead of relying on tradition or what others expected.
