Southern Oregon Coast Elopement - Brookings, OR Elopement Photographer
An epic elopement featuring Samuel H. Boardman Scenic Corridor and Redwood National Park while still leaving space for family.
Can you really have it all on your elopement day? Time with loved ones, adventure, and time with just the two of you? YES. These two are a great example of how you can enjoy all these elements during your elopement day.
We started the day with getting ready photos at Whaleshead Lodge. Ashley wore a stunning, custom dyed dress made by Wai Ching Studio. She even had her hair dyed to match her dress by her hairstylist. The bride had time to hang out with her friends and mother during this time.
We moved onto the first look on the beach in Samuel H. Boardman Scenic Corridor. Our next stop was a hike in Redwood National Park with just the couple. We went back to the Oregon Coast for their ceremony with their closest friends and family present. I always recommend this particular beach for ceremonies with family because it has a picnic area with an ocean view for some post ceremony snacks. There were toasts and fancy cheeses while the waves crashed in the background.
Next was an easy going family dinner back at the lodge. The couple got time to just hang out with everyone present with no rush. We snuck off at golden hour to capture some photos of just the two of them on a sandstone cliff before going back to the lodge for cake and marriage license signing.
Just like these two, you can have both an intimate elopement with just you two and celebrating with your family on your wedding day. Check out this resource on ways to include your family in your elopement for more ideas on how to include loved ones without sacrificing your elopement experience.
