If this gallery isn’t an example to embrace your “Plan B” then I don’t know what is. These two weren’t planning on having an intimate wedding at Cannon Beach, Oregon but IT WAS ABSOLUTE PERFECTION.
When Margaux reached out to me to discuss her updated wedding plans, she definitely downplayed the love and beauty that is her family home in Cannon Beach. In true fashion, I google stalked the house after she gave me the address to see what I’d be working with and fell in love immediately. A short walk to the beach provided the most perfect setting.
We started the day off getting ready to the sound of the Trail Blazers game in the background as these two are just as avid fans as I am! We then transitioned to a private cove I had found for their first look. One of the struggles with Cannon Beach is it tends to be crowded unless you catch it right at sunrise. Haystack Rock has special meaning to Margaux so I wanted to make sure we were still able to incorporate it into their photos, while also providing them the privacy and quiet they deserved for their first look and vows.
After all of the first look snuggles and giggles, we made our way back to the home for ceremony! A local hotel nearby actually set up the ceremony site for the couple which was a huge help! A circle arbor perfectly framing Haystack Rock was everything one could ever want in a ceremony view.
Following ceremony and a backyard celebration complete with the best food and yard games, we took an afternoon nap and refresh break meeting up in the evening for sunset and……. A BONFIRE ON THE BEACH!
Surfsand Resort set up the most fabulous bonfire for their wedding party and the group danced fireside, made s’mores, and laughed the night away. Talk about the perfect ending to the perfect day.
Enjoy this glimpse into an intimate wedding at Cannon Beach, Oregon. I dare you not to smile while you look at them. Seriously, Margaux’s smile is so contagious! Vendors listed at the bottom of the post and deserve so much love! They nailed it! 💞
