This beautiful seaside elopement comes to us from Barrie of Barrie Anne Photography, based in Seattle, WA! Here’s what Barrie has to say about this sweet wedding and the happy couple:

Katie & Josh are high school sweethearts, they meet freshmen year. Josh noticed Katie for the first time while playing basketball with his friends, as she was walking back from gymnastics practice. She had the most beautiful eyes and smile he had ever seen; he knew he just had to meet her, and they have been together ever since. Katie and Josh share a love for the outdoors, they love to hike and explore the wonders of this world, and after 7 years together Josh asked Katie to be his wife.

See more after the cut!

Real Wedding: Katie and Josh's Beach Elopement by Barrie Anne Photography


The couple has been in love with Seattle ever since they visited last year, and they couldn’t think of a place that would better reflect their love. It was also Seattle where Katie agreed to be Josh’s wife, and so it was the perfect location for their special day. The couple said their I do’s in a beautiful and simple ceremony on Alki Beach, with a stunning view of the Seattle skyline in the background. The wedding theme, colors, and flowers symbolize the beautiful outdoors they’ve grown to love, as well the upcoming winter season they enjoy the most.

Congratulations Katie & Josh and thank you Barrie for sharing! For more information about Barrie Anne Photography, please visit her website.
