From Photographer: I love my home state SO much – and the people that live here are second to none. I drove up to Anacortes to catch the Lopez Island ferry for a sweet little elopement on a STORMY Saturday morning… but that wasn’t stopping this couple. I pulled up to their art studio airbnb and Katie was standing in the doorway. We’d never met before, but standing there in her perfect jewel tone dress, I crossed my fingers and hoped that was the BRIDE!
One of my favorite parts of a wedding are the details that make the wedding unique – true to the style of the couple. From start to finish – that was the case for these two… No fuss of a big wedding, just a perfect little weekend getaway to say their forever commitments + end the day with a warm crockpot of bbq chicken for sliders on a stormy evening.
The PERFECT autumn elopement.
Vanessa & Brandon are true epitome of love conquers all. These two love birds had a rough start in life and found each other in the Second Chances program located in Chula Vista, California. Through thick and thin they overcame struggles and let their relationship blossom. Vanessa & Brandon have supported each other in the best of times and the worst of times so what better way to celebrate their bond and strength with their family. Vanessa & Brandon decided to tie the knot in an intimate ceremony at the San Diego Courthouse with the people that supported them their most, their family. It was an important day for everyone who was a part of it. Vanessa was such a budget savvy bride and found most of her fashion accessories at Price Breakers Indoor Bazaar in National City. She was able to find designer pieces at wholesale prices making her a vintage bridal princess. This young couple is truly one of a kind and embodies “love didn’t find us; we found love.”

Katie & Adam met while working at the Sheriff's department in San Diego a few years ago. They quickly connected and spent tons of time together as friends and eventually grew into a romantic relationship. Adam has 2 kids from a previous relationship that stood by Katie and their dad during their intimate elopement at the San Diego Administration Center. It was clear that Katie & Adam had so much support from their friends and family. Their day was all about bringing their 2 families together and starting their next big adventure. Katie's ring was from her favorite antique store in Carlsbad. Adam had his boutonniere made out of a bullet casing by Epic Stems.
A golden mountainside served as the backdrop for this beautifully simple fall elopement in Whitewater, Colorado. There were no frills or fuss, the bride wore a vintage dress and accessories, including a meaningful purse her brother had given her years ago. The couple exchanged vows over a view of the Kannah Creek River and took a romantic walk back to the cabin resting on this private property. The bride arranged the flowers herself, and the two enjoyed a decadent chocolate cake with desserts giving homage to her ethnic background.
Sophia and Antonio traveled miles and years together to get to their elopement at Gateway Canyons Resort in Colorado. The couple from Michigan drive 1,500 miles to create their dream day in an intimate setting at this spectacular 5-star resort. Although Antonio had proposed nearly ten years ago, it took until now for the time to be just right. It was just the two of them and the officiant by a lake overlooking a spectacular Colorado vista with amazing 360 degree views. After the ceremony, the couple laughed and danced together through the desert and enjoyed the most carefree and romantic moments of their day.

For Andrea and Chad, the location of where they tied the knot was of great importance to them. Chad explained that they wanted to be able to always return to the site where they made their commitment to each other. And in an era of constant construction, there was no guarantee they could get that from a typical wedding venue. So, they opted for a national park, and selected (in my humble opinion) one of the most beautiful: Rocky Mountain National Park in Estes Park, Colorado. In fact, the exact spot where they read their vows to each other was the same place where Chad proposed and Andrea accepted, imparting even more meaning on the location. After exchanging incredibly heartfelt and personal vows, the couple shared their first dance just as the sun dipped behind the mountains.
As you know love is the host of life’s most precious moments. Taking cues from the natural beauty of California’s coastline and local flora while adding in elements of grace and intimacy is a guaranteed recipe for a wedding full of love, romance, and unforgettable moments. Bekah and Mark sought the beauty that surrounds them in California which reinforces the radiance they feel when together.
This couple met doing laundry at the laundromat. Sparks flew and fast forward they eloped to Valley of Fire in Overton, NV.
