Big Sur Elopement
They didn’t start out planning a Big Sur elopement, were planning a big wedding, tons of guests, expensive venue, all of it. And they we’re both feeling overwhelmed but more than that they felt like they we’re loosing what they wanted their wedding to be about – their love. They stopped thinking about what they “should” do, and started thinking about what felt right for them.
What they really wanted was something intimate & something adventurous! I love weddings & I love elopements and what I love most is couples who forget expectations and do what fits them!! Their day started in a gorgeous house overlooking Big Sur’s cliffs as they got ready in separate rooms. Then Natalie trekked through a field to get to this beautiful little point for to have what was one of the best first look reactions I’ve ever seen. They walked hand in hand to their ceremony and exchanged personal vows, belly laughs, tears and chose each other in front of the most beautiful landscape I’ve ever seen.
Next Natalie surprised Rocky with a ring that she had infused from the ring Rocky’s grandmother – who had raised him and passed away when he was 15, had given him!! It was the sweetest moment ever! Then we ran around, rock climbed, and played in the sunset!! They drove their super cool corvette up to their out of this world teepee dinner set up!!!!!!!! Most magical harry potter vibes you’ve ever seen!!! And to top off the night the champagne exploded in Natalie’s mouth and made for the funniest photos ever!! I’ve never seen a love to pure, so intentional or so explosive. I’m over the moon in love with this Big Sur Elopement and what I got to capture & create with these crazy amazing clients of mine!!
