From our first contact, I loved how Steph and Beth described their plans for their elopement. These two met online and had their first date at the Rainbow Lighthouse in Long Beach. Steph told me “Beth brought sunflowers and suggested drinks and appetizers at Bubba Gump’s (the only place we could get into) even though she doesn’t eat seafood. We followed that up with a stroll around the harbor and a kiss at the lighthouse. After we said goodnight, we both went home and texted each other BEST DATE EVER!” They decided to have their elopement at the exact same spot on the three year anniversary of that amazing first date! Their closest friends gathered and were part of the celebration, from planning and officiating to making the dress and watching their adorable dressed up dog Juvie. There were also some family members Skyped in for the ceremony, and lots of well-wishes from many people we passed by at the park during the sunset portraits. Such a gorgeous setting for such a sweet couple and I was so happy to be part of this lovely day!
