When you meet and photograph a couple and wish they didn’t live out of state so you could hang out and become friends you know it was a good wedding. In Simon and Leslie’s case it was a stellar elopement to be exact. Just the two of them, an officiant, yours truly and another woman as witnesses, her grandfather in spirit via a locket held by Leslie and nothing but a bunch of treehouses at Treehouse Point in Issaquah, WA. It was a wet day to begin with but that didn’t sour these two lovelies who are hands down some of the most genuinely nice people I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet. Nice, fun, cute, silly, super pleasant, very kind, you get the idea. The elopement was a secret and planned from afar in Fargo, North Dakota. The electricity between Simon and Leslie was so crazy infectious it made me want to go home and hug my husband. Rain made for some tricky photo opportunities at the start but when it came time for their ceremony the skies were dry but I can’t say the same for my eyes. Monster hug goes out to Simon and Leslie. They rock.
