I'm Tonie - my hearts desire is to work with brides who are not afraid of stepping outside their comfort zone for a dance in the rain, a romp under a waterfall or a blustery day that might put wind in her hair!


Elopement in the Mountains by Seattle Wedding Photographer Tonie Christine

Apr 16, 2014

Have you heard me say ” …I’m the photographer for the bride who does not just walk the aisle but she blazes her own trail.” Well this is EXACTLY what I am talking about. Can I even put words to this AH-MAZING day? Not really…I think I died and went to heaven.. I am SURE this is what it looks like in heaven.

Venturing back to the very spot that Chris got down on one knee to ask Robin to be his forever, these two exchanged vows and sweet moments in an intimate ceremony full of love, laughter and the wind beneath their feet. With the grand backdrop of the mountains of the quaint city these two now call home, Robin and Chris left their mark on the hillside in Leavenworth, WA.

The brides personal taste for all things unique and fashion forward thinking shown through in her leather belt accent to her navy and lace wedding gown, and the perfect details of their sweet wilderness picnic. This elopement in the mountains takes my breath away.

    What a treasure these amazing photos are. Seriously dying with the loveliness here!

    You have truly captured the love and the simplicity of their special day. From the simple ceremony on the mountain top to the cake on the paddles. Wonderful job Tonie. And congrats to the new couple.

    Gorgeous! Looks like they came straight out of a magazine.

  8. Jen Leslie Events says:

    LOVE! Where is her dress from? I need to add that to my closet 🙂 You have to submit these, they are amazing. My favorite is her on the rock, by herself, causal, it’s so simple and honest. Excellent work, as always!

  12. Megan Greenlaw says:

    Oh. My. Goodness. This is perfect! What an exceptional way to have a wedding ceremony that represents a couple instead of an “ideal wedding.” You did a phenomenal job capturing the intimacy of this wedding!! I love that the mountain backdrop is so intimate and sacred…it really gives that feeling of sanctity that you want at a wedding. I LOVE her dress! Her hair! The picnic! This seriously makes me wish that Mike and I could do a vow renewal for our anniversary…..even though this year will only be year 6, and I’ll be like 8 weeks post-partum 🙂

  13. Danny Gorman says:

    That last images is fantastic…. well really all of them are but seriously you’re awesome.

  14. Bria Valentino says:

    These photos perfectly represent the reason I always say I want to run away to the mountains to get married. Surrounded by beauty only God can create! I bet these two are SO happy they have these photos. Absolutely stunning work 🙂

  15. Juliet Hoffman says:

    Can you tell me where in the mountains this took place? I would love to go there!!!! Pictures are amazing!
