Browns Point Wedding // Stephanie + Travis


We are excited to share Stephanie and Travis’ beautiful Browns Point wedding!

In Tacoma, Washington, Browns Point is a stunning waterfront venue perfect for elopements and intimate weddings. The Keeper’s Cottage is the picture-perfect setting to prepare for your special day. This living museum is rich with history and has three bedrooms for relaxing before your “I dos.” Once ready, walk down the front steps to your one-of-a-kind ceremony. 

Our photographers started the day with Stephanie and Travis by capturing the breathtaking scenery at Browns Point. The stunning lighthouse and charming cottage looked like they were straight out of a movie. Then, we joined the couple as their friends and family made a pre-wedding toast to commence the day. Afterward, Stephanie slipped into her lovely strapless wedding gown, and we were off to take their portraits. This quintessential PNW waterfront location makes the most striking backdrop to photos. We loved capturing Stephanie and Travis along the rocky beach, against the washed-up driftwood, and with the lighthouse in the background. After, it was time to get hitched.  

Stephanie walked barefoot down the aisle to her groom. Once they exchanged rings, the carefree couple ran into the water, where they shared their first kiss as husband and wife. After the ceremony, everyone joined the couple at a nearby barn and horse pasture for a lovely night of dinner and dancing.

We are so thankful to have been a part of Stephanie and Travis’ beautiful Browns Point wedding! We can’t wait to share their photos below!
