Christy & Jacob fell in love around Mt Rainier, years ago, so it was only fitting that they celebrated their marriage at the glorious Crystal Sky Camp. They truly chose to make their wedding an adventurous experience, bringing all their family to the PNW for a weekend glamping on one of WA’s most beautiful ridges.

Their wedding gave their guests the opportunity to behold the incredible views that the venue offers & the experience of enjoying them all together. Jacob and Christy loved the idea that they could have all of their people in one place without any distractions, to explore the stunning environment with them. Everyone arrived a day early, on Friday, and took the ski lift up to Crystal Sky Camp. You heard me, A SKI LIFT, and it was one of my favorite wedding activities to date.

This couple chose details that highlighted the uniqueness of this location. Jacob wore a green suit, bringing out the surrounding evergreens. I scouted out a perfectly secluded part of camp with sweeping views over the mountains for their first look. After, the 3 of us piled into yet another ski lift to reach one of the most beautiful views of Mt Rainier I’ve ever seen (and I’ve photographed more than one beautiful Mt Rainier elopement and wedding!)

We came back down the lift for their ceremony amidst the ridges, with golden light pouring through the peaks. For their reception, Christy and Jacob had an intimate dinner back at the Crystal Sky Camp ski lodge. Guests had drinks out on the patio, enjoying the scenery while the fire pits crackled. Indoors, the tables were set with simple florals that complimented the mountainside atmosphere, & the evening ended in joyful dancing & celebration.
