A Vintage-Meets-Modern Elopement-Inspired Styled Shoot At Olympic National Park's Rialto Beach

This dreamy styled shoot at Olympic Park's Rialto Beach seamlessly combines vintage bridal style with the modern elopement. M. Laine Photography beautifully captured each and every detail, from the location's breathtaking views to the luxurious bouquet from Sound Blooms Floral Studio. A gorgeous vintage gown from Scorpio Rising stole the show, adding a lovely pop of color to the shoot, and natural hair and makeup by Kendetta Artistry tied the entire bridal look together.

From photographer M. Laine Photography:

"When Mavaney, the model bride, and I planned this styled elopement, we had snow and ice caves in mind. The Big Four Ice Caves to be specific. Nature had other plans, however. After waiting months for this shoot to happen, the week prior to the shoot I was checking up on weather and trail conditions as usual. Unfortunately, there had been a massive avalanche at the ice caves, closing the trail. I messaged Mavaney and we scrambled to find a new location that would fit our vision of easy elegance. We landed on Rialto Beach in the Olympic National Park.

Rialto Beach is known for its black sand and large haystacks in the water. I knew this environment would provide the perfect contrast for Mavaney’s pink vintage dress. The warm sunshine, hazy light, and bright waters were the perfect cherry on top."
