I remember when my husband asked me to marry him 20 years ago. Our first plan was to elope. We planned on jumping in the car and driving to California and getting married on the beach somewhere with a beautiful view. Like many couples, we changed our plans so our family and friends could could help us celebrate. There is a lot to be said for a small wedding. Less stress and fewer details make for a more relaxed ceremony!
Lately I’ve been photographing a lot of smaller weddings with couples from all over the world who come to the Monterey Bay to elope. Sometimes they choose this area based on a photograph or one of my blog posts. A couple of weeks ago I photographed this sweet elopement at Lone Cypress on 17 Mile Drive in Pebble Beach. Ashley and Roberto travelled here from Pennsylvania.
Congratulations Roberto & Ashley!!
