Early on a Monday morning in August, as I was driving east from Seattle to Rattlesnake Ledge in the Cascade mountains to meet up with Marin Pitt and Nicholas Stewart, I was thinking it would be a perfect day to photograph their elopement. Rattlesnake Ridge or Ledge,  is a mountain ridge located south of North Bend, Washington. I met them for the first time in the parking lot below the 3,481′ peak. They had just come out to Washington from Salt Lake City with a couple of friends, one of whom was licensed to perform wedding ceremonies in the state. He was wearing a t-shirt with a picture of Jeff Bridges as the DUDE on it. that should have given me a clue. Marin was wearing a whit wedding dress and smoke jumper boots (she works as a smoke jumper).

I liked Marin and Nick right away and we started to climb the to the top of the ridge. I photographed them as we went and after an hour and a half we reached the summit and we made some more pictures with a grand view off to the higher peaks of the Cascade Range. We decided to hike down a little to a place not far from the top and have the wedding ceremony. The Dude, The Big Lebowski, would have loved the ceremony. It was a Dudeism  wedding ceremony and it was a first for me. It was very touching and afterwards we hiked down occasionally passing other hikers coming up.
