This summer citrus picnic elopement was more than I could’ve imagine. We’re so blessed with all the amazing vendors who collaborated with us to make this all happen.
If you’ve been following us for a while, you know that Lisa and Alan are our pass bride and groom. I knew I had to get them in front of my camera again. They were the perfect couple and model for my vision. The amazing florist is a sweet and talented vendor friend of ours. We connected with Jess back in 2019 when she made us a beautiful bouquet for our couple Janet and Nick for their Lake Tahoe Engagement Session. She was one of the first person to come to mind when we thought about creative vendors to work with for this! Nancy and I met in 2020 in a Clubhouse room. Nancy’s work is absolutely stunning. Lastly, the delicious and beautiful cake was created by our pass client and vendor friend, Krystal.
When I first came to this beautiful ocean front location for a maternity session, I was speechless. This location was absolutely breathtaking. It is perfect for any type of session, especially an Elopement.
Elopements have been in our hearts for quite a long time now. It does make sense since we had our own Elopement for our wedding day. Elopements to us means ‘intimacy’. It allowed us to break wedding traditions and do things that’s more true to us.
We wanted to showcase that Elopements can too be just as beautiful as a traditional luxury wedding. The secret to a perfect day is doing things your way! Invest into the things that matter to you the most. After all, it is your wedding day. What you want matters and is important. At the end of the day, you’re the one who will remember this for many years to come.
