Big Sur Elopement

Couple doing a deep dip on the beach in Big Sur, California

Big Sur is one of the dreamiest places for an adventure elopement, and one of Scenic Vows’ favorite places to shoot! At almost 90 miles, this part of the California coastline is breathtakingly beautiful and a truly wild place. Steep cliffs, sandy beaches, giant rocks, waterfalls, and luscious green hills will have you daydreaming of the possibilities for your Big Sur elopement!

From the East Coast to an Elopement at Big Sur

Alyssa and Ryan are from the east coast and had never been to Big Sur before their anniversary trip. We originally planned to go for a short hike to Limekiln Falls but the trail was closed.  Glad we checked the conditions (you can check here!), there’s no cell reception! So instead, we headed down to the beach for a romantic sunset stroll! And man oh man the Big Sur sunset did not disappoint!

An Experience to Last a Lifetime

These two love birds had a traditional wedding on the east coast and a year later were on an anniversary road trip through some of the most beautiful locations the US has to offer. Of course, they wanted to take some photos in Big Sur so they could capture those moments and experience and have them last forever!

They were up for the adventure, running through the water and getting soaked by unexpected waves! The whole time you could feel the connection between them — and Alyssa’s bubbly personality was intoxicating.
