Aubrielle and Chris wanted to have the most fun and unique elopement day possible, so we planned just that.
The day started at an old, off-grid hexagon Airbnb in the mountains. Miles from the nearest neighbor, this specific Airbnb had a working bathtub in the backyard with a gorgeous view, so of course, it was required that’s how we should start the day.
Aubrielle and Chris changed into bathing suits and took a dip in the bath, blowing bubbles and taking in the view together. After a slow morning, they got ready together before we headed out to the nearby zoo.
When these two said they wanted to have a unique day, they truly meant it. We started with walking amongst the redwoods, a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience that the two of them absolutely loved. We then went to check out all the animals, stopping at a petting zoo where the goats were insistent on trying to eat Aubrielle’s bouquet. The last stop was the gift shop where they bought ice cream and enjoyed it on a nearby bench.
We then made our way to the beach for sunset where the fog covered the trees and the mist from the waves made the most moody lighting for a ceremony.
The day was perfect, exactly and completely about them, just the way an elopement should be.
