I love loved this Roosevelt Beach wedding & this sweet couple so much. They had the most special intimate wedding on one of Seattle’s nearby beaches, Roosevelt Beach, that I couldn’t wait to share with you all.
Kayla + Cameron’s wedding on Roosevelt Beach
Kayla and Cameron were such a special couple to me – they were so low-key and just overall great to be around. They found this beach, about 140 miles west of Seattle, and decided they wanted to get married on it a few months before their wedding day.
It was the most perfect, rad beach for their wedding: the guests could drive down onto the beach and walk to the ceremony from their cars, so no need to hike or walk along any long trails!
A first look with dad
Kayla and her dad had a super sweet first look before everybody made their way to the beach. First looks with parents are always a huge honor to witness and definitely make me tear up a little every time – I highly recommend parent first looks if you’re super close to a parent/family member and this would be special to you on your big day!
The coolest entrance ever
Now let’s get to the part I’ve been dying to share!
Kayla and her dad were supposed to arrive on the beach in a vintage Jeep, but it ended up breaking down the week of. So instead of freaking out when plans didn’t work out for him to drive her down to the beach, he decided to surprise her with a PLANE. No big deal right?
He hired this little airplane to land on the beach for their arrival and Kayla had no idea until about an hour before the ceremony. They flew over the ceremony site a few times as the arriving guests cheered and waved. Then landed and headed right into the ceremony. What a moment, what a day! So freaking cool.
Their foggy beach wedding ceremony
If you’re eloping/getting married in the PNW, you know that you’ve gotta prepare for all types of weather. Especially rain and fog.
Kayla and Cameron’s beach ceremony was super foggy and misty, and it looks SO damn cool. The PNW mood really is something else and never disappoints, even if you were dreaming of a sunny day!

Sunset portraits on the beach
After having a low-key reception/dinner with their closest friends & family at their rental house in Seabrook, we ended the night with sunset photos on the beach. And we actually got a super beautiful sunset because of the clouds and fog – I promise you “bad” weather really isn’t all that “bad!”
What an honor to be part of such a special and intimate wedding celebration!
