Summer Redwoods Elopement

Lauren and Tarran invited two of their closest friends to their elopement on the Oregon Coast (while also exploring the Redwoods). They originally had plans of a small wedding in Tahoe, but they were still able to include family by having everyone write them letters for their special day. And boy oh boy, was there a lot of letters to read!

There were lots of tiny ways that these two made their elopement about them. From the Dairy Queen ice cream “wedding cake” to the beach picnic with their closest friends. These ladies have been through a lot together, and we were unbelievably honored to help them create a space to celebrate their relationship.

And just a shout out to their friends who were the most flexible and helpful friends you could ask for! Especially when you’re eloping, it’s always great to have friends who can roll with any changes and be there for you.

The Oregon Coast always holds a special place in our heart. We love getting to visit Southern Oregon where it just feels more remote, which reminds us a lot of our time living in Wyoming. Thank you Lauren and Taran for pouring your hearts out to each other and being so positive and flexible to make your elopement day what it was!
