Nestled in the heart of the Pacific Northwest, Gold Creek Pond stands as a picturesque gem, a testament to the beauty that Washington’s landscapes offer. As a PNW wedding photographer, I had the privilege of capturing Kaylyn and Erik’s enchanting Gold Creek Pond elopement against the backdrop of this stunning location.
Discovering Gold Creek Pond: The Perfect Elopement Location:
Nestled not far from the city of Seattle, Gold Creek Pond has become my absolute favorite spot to capture elopements! Its proximity to Seattle makes it easily accessible.

A Love Story Unfolds
Kaylyn, a North Carolina native, and Erik, who has called Washington home for several years due to his military service, met and fell in love two years ago. Their connection was so strong that it transcended geographical boundaries. Erik’s proposal was by a lake near his home after a Sunday church service! It marked the beginning of their journey towards forever. This elopement served as an opportunity for Kaylyn to not only explore Washington but also meet Erik’s entire family for the very first time. Making it an even more special occasion!
Kaylyn and Erik’s Gold Creek Pond elopement was not just a wedding ceremony! It was a destination experience for them and their families! The ease of access to the location, with a mere three-minute walk from the parking lot to the lake, made it all the more enchanting. Their day followed a planned timeline! Starting with a heartfelt ceremony where Kaylyn and Erik exchanged vows against the tranquil waters of Gold Creek Pond. While her five-year-old son Luke radiated joy and a sense of belonging. Followed by the signing of the marriage license and capturing precious family moments. Finally, an hour of dedicated portrait sessions allowed Kaylyn and Erik to bask in the joy of their union against the stunning backdrop of Gold Creek Pond.

Their vision for a short and sweet elopement aligned perfectly with my passion for capturing intimate moments and genuine emotions.
