Luxury Campsite Redwoods, Big Sur Elopement

April 3, 2020

Ventana Big Sur Elopement

These two flew in from Hong Kong for their Ventana Big Sur elopement and I couldn’t be more excited about it!! They weren’t planning on eloping but once they planned a vacation to Big Sur, it seemed like the perfect place to elope!! So within a few weeks, she got a dress and hired me!! I’m usually booked out a year in advance but couldn’t be happier that this all worked out so perfectly!

I knew I was going to love them when Jill emailed me and said, “My boyfriend is shy and a nerd but I’m cute and outgoing” lol!! I loved getting to know these two cuties and their love story!! They met at work and quickly fell for each other!! It was sooo cute how she got him out of his shell! He couldn’t help but laugh and smile with her!!

Since everything was planned last minute, Jill didn’t have a florist for her bridal bouquet!! So I picked up some local flowers and arranged a boho bouquet for her!! I love her bridal style and her off the shoulder ballgown was so perfect for the magical fairytale vibes of the day!! Jill’s friend made her veil for her and I am obsessed with the personalized embroidery detail on it!! How freakin cute!!

I met them at their gorgeous luxury campsite in the redwoods!! I’m obsessed with Ventana and glamping tents!! It was such a cute setting for their forest elopement!! They cozied up by the tent for the cutest bride & groom portraits and then we ventured into the woods!! The magical forest light on the trail was so perfect and I’m in LOVE.

After running around the forest, we headed to the coast for adventurous portraits on the breathtaking cliffs of Big Sur!! These two climbed up rocks, ran around the beach, and laughed through it all as the crazy wind swept around them!! I love that they weren’t afraid to have fun!! We had the best day ever and I feel so lucky!!
