Glen Oaks Big Sur Elopement

I knew I was going to love these two and what they had planned for their Glen Oaks Big Sur elopement when Ivonne emailed me and said “something about going on adventures together makes life so much better.” I couldn’t agree more and I love how that’s a huge reason they chose me!! I had so much fun adventuring around the coast of Big Sur with these two lovers for their stunning elopement! I am still buzzing over the perfect sunny weather and amazingggg forest light!!

These two found the perfect spot in the woods to exchange vows surrounded by just their closest fam! I love that they kept their guest list small and focused on each other!! The sun peeked through the trees for their emotional ceremony as these two shared personal vows and promised forever!! And Ivonne’s off the shoulder lace wedding gown was so perfect for the dreamy forest ceremony + her vibrant boho bouquet was gorgeous!! Her laid-back bridal style was so stunning!!

After they exchanged rings, we wandered around the Glen Oaks forest and explored by the river!! We found a gorgeous bridge and soaked up all the forest sun before running off to the coast for some epic bride & groom portraits!! These two climbed up super steep rocky cliffs for us in the middle of a wind storm!! The wind was wildddd up on the cliffs but I always tell my brides as crazy as it seems and feels the wind makes images have so much movement and I am obsessed! Also I’m dying over the way they look at each other!! So much love between these two!! Sandy, windswept portraits on the beach are my dreeeeam!! Felt so dang lucky to watch the sunset over the ocean while these two played on the shore in the golden light!!

The California coast is so gorgeous for elopements and one of my fav places to shoot!!! Love calling this place home!! You can check out another stunning Big Sur elopement here!!
