These two came to me with the idea of wanting to have an elopement at Cannon Beach, Oregon. They loved the idea of doing something on or around the beach but also love the rainforest. They left it up to me to find the options that would allow them to incorporate their two favorites! Ecola State Park was the perfect place.
A first look in front of Haystack Rock is an obvious must, and afterwards we continued into the main events of the day. Along with their close family and friends, a spiritual ceremony was performed at a private cliffside bench overlooking Indian Beach. This location couldn’t have been more perfect! After the intentional and sweet ceremony, we made our way back down to the beach for champagne toasts, celebration, and charcuterie.
One element that they included in their day that I’ve never seen before was custom kites! Their family provided the most adorable kites with things like “just married” and their initials, etc. and they all ran around the beach flying kites together. It was hilarious to watch the first attempts and great bonding moments for the group. It was a joy to witness and capture.
From there, the couple and I bounced around the park. We explored other areas of the beach, the surrounding rainforest, and the incredible viewpoints overlooking the Oregon Coast line. After spending a few hours together they headed off with the rest of their family for a celebratory dinner at a local restaurant! It was a perfect afternoon spent with the most amazing people. This goes to show you can make your elopement day whatever you want it to be!
