A Sunset Beach Wedding Elopement at Cape Meares

Kristin and Wayne’s love story is a beautiful blend of spontaneity and genuine connection. It all began one evening when they reunited over beers after Kristin moved back to Portland. Wayne had pure intentions and was simply looking to catch up, while Kristin had a bit more excitement in mind. Later down the road, after a casual hangout watching the Rocky movies, Wayne casually suggested getting married at the courthouse. Kristin agreed that it sounded just right for them. However, when they discovered that courthouse weddings don’t happen on Saturdays, they pivoted to an even more fitting plan: a sunset beach wedding elopement at Cape Meares.

A Heartfelt Start to Kristin and Wayne’s Oceanfront Elopement

Kristin and Wayne started their day in an adorable private home overlooking the ocean, which set a cozy and intimate atmosphere for their elopement. Kristin shared a heartfelt first look with her dad, filled with emotions and meaningful reactions. Then came the first look with Wayne, capturing their love and excitement. These moments set the tone for their laid-back and family-oriented celebration.

As the sun began to set, Kristin and Wayne’s sunset beach wedding ceremony had a unique touch. The beach setting was already stunning, but there was this thick mist that created an ethereal glow that made everything feel almost otherworldly. It was the perfect backdrop for their vows and such a serene intimate vibe that felt like it was just for them.

He made it into many photos, and his excitement and energy complemented the day. Later, they all headed back to the home for a relaxed evening with friends and family.
