Finding a place to stay on the Coast of Washington can be a little tricky for someone traveling there for the first time. When Trish and I booked a wedding in Seattle, we were determined to make the most of our trip. I honeymooned in Seattle in 2013 and completely fell in love with what was OUTSIDE of the city. This time, traveling with my best friend and my husband, we decided to try to see more of what the “wild Washington” was all about. Starting on the coast, continuing to the city, and ending in the mountains is how we planned to do this thing. We used airbnb for the other two accommodations but somehow stumbled on the brand new town of Seabrook online. I immediately called Trish to brag about the find. We live near Seaside, Florida, and this town is actually made after its likeness. I have to tell you guys, we were not disappointed. In fact, I dare say that I prefer the Pacific Coast. The Gulf of Mexico is beautiful with white sand and warm emerald waters but there is something mystical about the Pacific North West. Maybe it’s the fog, maybe it’s the almost constant misty rain (we were there in October so not much sun), maybe it’s the high cliffs or incredibly tall northwest pines. Whatever it is, it is special.
The little town is complete with a bakery (that has great coffee), a general store, indoor pool, town hall and, my favorite, The Mill. On our last day in Seabrook, we crawled into the mill to warm up with some chili and burgers after exploring LaPush and Ruby beach, which are a must-see if you are in the area. The town feels like you are on a different planet all to yourself where everyone is kind and time slows down. The rentals are adorable and the entire town is walkable. As you can tell, we were smitten with Seabrook, so we are just putting it out there that we are dying to shoot a wedding there. Please, please contact us if you are getting married in Seabrook, Washington so we can give you a special deal.
I also want to mention that my husband, Walt took some of these photos as well. Trish and I are both proud of what he is learning as a new photographer. It was super fun having three photographers on one trip!
