I am so excited to share this Big Sur elopement with you! Shannon + Lee are both originally from Hawaii but knew they wanted to tie the knot in Big Sur. After the contacted me, we found out we only lived a couple miles apart in LA and it was so much fun getting to meet them before their big day! One of the benefits of having an elopement is that you can plan the entire day to be solely about what what the two of you want. This sweet couple got ready in the Big Sur forest, was wed by the Big Sur River and then we headed to the beach for more photos. My favorite Central Coast officiant Brian did a beautiful job with the ceremony and Kate of Big Sur Flowers created a gorgeous crown and bouquet for Shannon, as well as a boutonniere for Lee! The lovely Rhonda of Bridal Makeup and Hair did a beautiful job (as always!) on Shannon’s hair and makeup!
Next month, Shannon + Lee are celebrating their marriage with all of their family and friends in Oahu and I will be there to capture it all for them! I feel pretty lucky to have such an amazing couple bring me first to Big Sur to document their love and next Hawaii to celebrate their union with the people they love the most! Congratulations to my sweet newlyweds!
