Every time we go to the west coast, our hearts skip a beat. It’s no wonder why Oregon beaches are such a hot spot for elopements and intimate weddings. The inspiration for this shoot was brought on thru our maritime love. We wanted to create a true beach elopement. Classic romance is the vibe we were aiming for with the bride’s soft movement dress and handmade hairpiece. The color palette has the perfect amount of neutral greens and ivories with pops of pale pink and dusty blues. The décor which included sails, shells and coral combined beautifully together to showcase the Oregon coast.
We wanted to create a shoot that told of a story of two long-distance lovers who have finally found each other in this crazy world. The couple has just been reunited and they celebrated their love for each other as soon as they were both on land. We aimed to create a time and story before FaceTime and texting, a time of letter-writing – a simpler time. A time where the couple used compasses to guide them to each other.
Upon the couple’s elopement, a fresh meal of fish and oysters was the perfect celebratory dinner. The day ended with the happy couple frolicking in the ocean at sunset.
