Details About This A-Frame Cabin in Washington

Sierra Jessup Photography captured this gorgeous styled elopement near Packwood, WA. We love the overall intimacy of this elopement location and how romantic the details are.

“It sits right on the bank of the Cowlitz river, so you can step outside the cabin and take in the beautiful mountain and river views. Because of it’s cute charm, riverside location, and proximity to Mt. Rainier, I’m pretty sure this is the most magical A-frame cabin in the Northwest.” [Sierra, the photographer]

We love how this styled session really focuses on the outside of the cabin and shows other couples how romantic it would be to have your elopement ceremony with a similar view and design.

Picking An Airbnb or Rental Property For Your Elopement

Deciding to elope at an Airbnb or similar rental property is probably one of the best decisions for couples planning an elopement or micro wedding. Not only will you have all the opportunity to capture unique getting ready and ceremony portraits, but you have all the privacy you need. Instead of sharing a small hotel room together, you have a whole space to yourself.

“There is just something so charming about an A-frame cabin. The A-frame shape is almost like an arch or arbor, which provides beautiful framing for the couple, so it’s a great background for a ceremony. By choosing a private cabin like this one, you’re also getting the promise of privacy, which is definitely more difficult to guarantee in a public setting.” [Sierra, the photographer]

When planning your elopement at a rental property, you’ll want to be clear on what the rules and limitations are for your wedding day together. While most rental properties do not allow parties, many will make an exception for small celebrations like elopements. If you find a property you’re loving, then contact the owner and be as transparent as possible.

“I absolutely loved the addition of candles on the stairway and romantic lighting on the A-frame itself. Things like lanterns and candles, twinkle fairy lights, a campfire, or adding string lights to the cabin are usually easy to incorporate and can make such a big difference in the ambiance and vibe.” [Sierra, the photographer]

“The great thing about a cabin elopement is that it doubles as your lodging and your venue! It can be the perfect elopement location and relaxing getaway at the same time, so try to find one that has elements that you’ll enjoy. Many cabins offer things like hot tubs, fire pits, seclusion in the woods, proximity to mountain towns or trails, etc.

The second tip would be that you can make a cabin elopement as simple or as complex as you’d like. This particular elopement was styled with a lot of gorgeous details, but if you find a cute cabin it really can add all the charm and decor that you need!
