Redwoods to Beach Big Sur Elopement

This Big Sur elopement was pureeee magic from the redwoods to the beach!! Lauren & Dave had an amazing day surrounded by just their closest friends & fam! These two lovers chose to elope in Big Sur because of photos of mine that they had seen there!! Biggest compliment ever?! I knew from Lauren’s first email that we were going to create magic together!!

These two are so amazing and have shared so many incredible adventures together!! While in Thailand, Lauren & Dave got tattoos as part of a sacred ceremony. They asked Lauren what was on her heart, and she said starting a family was! A year later, they had their adorable son!!

They wanted their elopement to reflect their life together and wow oh wow was it dreamy and romantic!! I’m obsessssed!!! These two got ready in the cutest cabin surrounded by redwoods before sharing the most emotional first look!!! Lauren was absolutely stunning in her Grace Loves Lace wedding gown and veil! Dave perfectly complemented the bride’s modern glam style and boho florals with a two-tone tux! After their sweet first look, these two promised forever in a fairy ring of redwood trees!! Their cute son ran all around during their ceremony but made it back just in time for their first kiss!! It was the cutest thing!!

The redwoods were breathtaking but Jimmy and I had so much funnnn running around the beach with these hotties! I was seriously on a high the entire time! All I ever ask from my clients is to be willing to let loose and have fun with each other and with me and these two did not hold back and it shows!!! So we got some dreamy bride & groom portraits on the beach! The coast of Big Sur does nottttt disappoint!!

Lauren & Dave ended the day at the Big Sur Bakery with their friends & fam! The restaurant was decorated with more dreamy florals that could notttt have been more perfect!! I’m still obsessing over every detail!!! From the bride & groom table settings to the string lights, allll of Lauren’s boho dreams came true!! These two shared a first dance under the lights, cut the cake (while their sweet son snuck a bite), and started married life off right!!!

I loved editing these so much it felt like Disneyland! I added in some filmy edits for the first time and I’m obsessed! So future clients expect some fun filmy edits added in too!! This whole day was a dream and I loveeee reliving it!!
