Gorgeous Big Sur Elopement

I knewww these two were going to have a magical Big Sur elopement from the moment I met them!! I shot engagement photos for Claire & Mike on one of the few rainy days of the year here on the central California coast and it was seriously the most fun I’ve ever had getting lost in the rain and stuck in the mud!!! They were just so unafraid to have fun with each other and with me, up for anything, and didn’t let the weather stop them from having the best day!

Makes my heart so happy that these goofy lovers created a wedding day that was perfect for them. They picked the prettiest overlook in Big Sur for their ceremony with just their immediate family and her dad as their officiant! I could not get over the breathtaking views of the coast and the perfect elopement weather!!

The groom’s reaction to seeing his bride for the first time is one of my favs ever! These two were so cute the whole day!! Plus they had the most amazing personal vows that made me crack up and get emotional!! It was the sweetest ceremony and I love that they were surrounded by their family as they promised forever!!

Then we spent the rest of the night creating magic on the cliffs!! These two newlyweds weren’t afraid of a little adventure!! We ended the night on a gorgeous beach where we ran around barefoot!! Love the way the bride’s gorgeous Truvelle gown flowed in the wind as she ran around the beach!! And that she wasn’t afraid to hike around the rocks with her boho bridal bouquet in hand!!

It was the best day ever. Love these two crazies so much!!
