Big Sur California Beach Elopement

If you are wanting a moody location to get married in with fog, greenery, tropical plants, redwood trees, and warm weather – consider a Big Sur Elopement along the gorgeous California beaches!

Big Sur has always been on my bucket list to visit. A big thanks to my amazing friend Monique from Digital Creative Photo & Film for allowing me to be her assistant and take some photos during her adventure with Maeson and Colton!

GETTING READY FOR THE BIG SUR ELOPEMENT

Our day started in Santa Cruz visiting M & C in their airBnb to capture some super cute getting ready photos. Maeson was just about done with her hair and makeup so I borrowed her bouquet, heels, and wedding rings for some detail photos.

Once the wedding dress was on, with a little help from mom, it was time to meet Colton at the Santa Cruz pier for their first look on the beach!

FIRST LOOK ON THE SANTA CRUZ BEACH PIER

Their moment together was so sweet. Colton was literally shaking in his boots to see his bride to be! After turning around and seeing her in her beautiful attire his face lit up with joy.

First look photos are my favorite part of your wedding day because of this moment. You get to share such an intimate time together with no one else around to judge or comment. It really is such a genuine and private moment I think everY couple deserves to experience.

After M & C’s first look on the beach they loaded onto a party bus with their closest friends and headed to the Wedding Rock (not photographed) for their intimate elopement ceremony.

A FOGGY SUNSET BEACH ELOPEMENT

Before the sun was covered by a wall of fog, these two had the sun shining over them as they exchanged vows and beautiful light leaking through the clouds.

As the sun drifted away so did the warmer weather and we adventured around Big Sur to the edge of the world covered by tropical plants and endless miles of ocean.

You could literally spend all day adventuring the endless sights this beautiful California beach offers!

Now I can cross this location off of my bucket list and add it to my places I want to visit again list! So if you ever visit Big Sur California, count me in with you!
