Adam & Sommer's Redwood Forest Elopement

August 5, 2020 Weddings

Sommer & Adam have been together so long they might as well be married. They have a cute little 18-month-old and the sweetest little dog, who looks and acts a bit like a black fox. Sommer phoned me two weeks before the date of their Elopement. They had decided that it was finally time they officially tied the knot. 

One of the best parts of being a wedding photographer is that every project, every couple, and every wedding is unique. Sommer and Adam had planned a short and sweet Elopement at Valencia Hall. Valencia Hall is a bit of a community landmark in Aptos, California. With big storms every other year, it seems there are always road closures that force locals to commute the long way round and past this sweet little venue in the heart of the Redwood forest. I was pretty excited to shoot at this venue myself! 

Sommer and Adam's Elopement was short and sweet just the way they wanted it. It was only their immediate family and their adorable little dog! 

They celebrated with a glass of champagne and cupcakes. Congratulations, Sommer & Adam, on finally tying the knot like only real Santa Cruz locals can!
