What Megan and Alex wanted for their wedding day is for it to be intimate and about nothing else but the sacred nuptial vow. Choosing to have an elopement they opted to state their vows witnessed by the rustic beauty of the woods. Tall trees shadowing the forest, rays of sunlight peeking through the trees, voices of the jungle in the background, no other place would be more perfect. Megan was glowing and Alex was very much in love. It was nothing less than a pretty sight. Scroll through the gallery and see for yourself.
Something from the bride:
The most important thing to us was to have a ceremony where we could focus on our promises to each other, celebrate our love, and really be present in the moment. We knew we wanted to get married outdoors so we chose Big Sur because of the stunning scenery. We had originally planned to have the ceremony on the beach but when we checked into our cabin at Glen Oaks the day before the ceremony, the property was so pretty; we knew we had to get married there under the redwoods.
We woke up on the day of our wedding to a huge rainstorm, and no backup plan. Lucky for us, as soon as our videographer arrived to set up, the rain had slowed to a drizzle, and had completely stopped by the time of the first look! We ended up writing our own ceremony, but our officiant, Soaring, was incredible. She really made it special with a few added rituals. We are so happy we found Evynn and Brittany to document our special day. Because of their beautiful art, we can re live our wedding day for years to come, and share the images with our friends and family. We are so thankful for these photos and the way they remind us of our happiest day together.
