Michael and Gosia made the trip to California from Georgia to elope in Laguna Beach. The sweetest human beings that there are, approached their few days here with full intention. Their Laguna Beach Elopement was perfect from beginning to end. They started the day helping each other get ready in their cute AirBnb, they ended the day with sand in their toes. To include their families in their elopement, they framed images of their loved ones and placed them where they prepped. It was simple and sweet.
Getting ready with your loved one the morning of your day is truly special. I enjoyed photographing Michael + Gosia's sweet moments in the process of prepping for their I-Do's. Before heading to Heisler Park, we photographed them and their details around their AirBnb. It felt very much like a Laguna Beach Elopement because of the coastal colors that encompassed the space. Doing this truly helped set the scene for their day in their gallery as well as transition them smoothly in real-time for the upcoming events.
LAGUNA BEACH ELOPEMENT IN HEISLER PARK
The Ceremony was held in the Heisler Park Gazebo. I linked the info you need to know to help you with logistics i.e. permits and number of guests, etc. For this particular day, Michael and Gosia hired an officiant, paid for the permit for the Gazebo, and called it a day. It was a very simple and beautiful ceremony. They wrote their own vows and read them to each other. They said their I-Do's, danced their first dance, it was simply wonderful.
After the ceremony, the rest of the day was bridal portraits, or as some people like to call them, romantics. Heisler Park is absolutely beautiful and set the scene for us perfectly. It has a ton of different backdrops to add variety to your images as well as to truly help enhance your experience. It is a special thing to be a part of someone's day by photographing such a significant time in their life, it's even more special photographing a couple take in a beautiful environment together for the first time. I'm so lucky I get to do both.
