After their original wedding plans were canceled in 2020 due to Covid, Alexis and Eric came all the way from Tennessee to California to elope in the same beautiful location that Eric originally popped the question. They started their day by exchanging gifts and independently reading their vows to one another in their rooms at Ventana Resort. The gorgeous couple got married at Sur Vista overlooking the ocean and mountains, with their immediate family as witnesses. I then swept them away for a few hours to show them my favorite places along the Big Sur coast. We climbed trees in the redwoods, popped champagne at Pfeiffer Beach, and hiked the cliffs at Garrapata.

I couldn't have dreamed up a better couple to work with. They were up for anything I asked them to do, they put their complete faith and trust into my vision, and I think they thanked me at least 5 times throughout the session. Eric was so attentive to Alexis helping her across the log bridge and helping her with her dress when climbing the rocks. Their beautiful love story was captured on one of the most gorgeous days I've ever seen in Big Sur. The sun was shining and the fog was hanging low - the perfect combination.
