First Look and Ceremony on the Beach
Tiffany and Meagan’s love story spans their lifetimes. They met as children and unfortunately experienced first hand the stigma against same sex couples too many others have also felt. As a result, they did not pursue an attraction for each other until meeting again many years later. Their story has many twists and turns, including other marriages and children, but the chapter beginning here is full of life and excitement. The smiles of family and friends witnessed at this elopement speak volumes to the support Meagan and Tiffany now cherish as a married couple.

The location of their ceremony was as as special and unique as the Tiffany and Meagan. Kalaloch beach has become popular by the image of a tree spanning a gaping cavern on the cliff as you go down to the beach. What surprises everyone is how the tree still thrives, despite having half its root structure visible and vulnerable. Like this tree, Meagan and Tiffany are thriving despite the difficulties their relationship has endured. As the world becomes more open and educated to the rights of all people to love who they wish, we hope love stories like Meagan and Tiffany’s can inspire others to be true to themselves and find support and allyship.
Olympic Peninsula Forest Portraits
Tiffany and Meagan became actual forest nymphs on their elopement day. Meagan wore a tiara and twirled below the towering boughs of massive old growth trees, her lacy skirt collecting dirt and pine needles all the way. The greenery and foliage was otherworldly, and made a beautiful contrast to the grey skies of the Washington state beach where they had just said their vows. These two added many personal details to their elopement, which were perfect for them. Tiffany wore socks covered in Sasquatch and pine trees, and both wore hiking boots tough enough to handle the continually soggy ground.
We love when our couple’s dream elopement becomes a reality and that is exactly what happened for Meagan and Tiffany. Meagan has expressed to us her love of Twilight, which is why they chose to elope on the Olympic Peninsula, and both share a fondness for Sasquatch. While Bigfoot did not make an appearance, it’s not hard to imagine the mythical secrets held within the wildness of Washington’s coastal region. After a romp through the woods, we headed back to the beach for sunset.
Sunset on the Washington Coast
There’s something satisfying about watching someone run around in their wedding dress as casually as they would shorts and a t-shirt. That level of comfort is something I wish every bride felt on their elopement or wedding day. By the end of this elopement, Meagan’s dress was weighted down by mud, sand, and sea. That didn’t stop either of them from getting back in the ocean, flashing the coastline, and sharing piggy back rides. Actually, as it began to lightly rain, Meagan could hardly contain her excitement!
Wet and happy, the newly married couple removed their tops to show us their tattoos. The drawn images of each other come together when Meagan and Tiffany embrace, creating a physical representation of their lifelong connection to each other. This perfect Washington coast elopement ended at sunset with Tiffany and Meagan repeatedly splashing each other in the ocean and pausing to embrace and take in the day.
