This incredibly beautiful and well-styled elopement in Laguna Beach, CA was such a dream to be a part of. Kasey is not only a good friend, but a super talented and creative wedding stylist and planner that I've previously worked with on a number of weddings and editorial shoots. Cam is a very talented chef and it was so fun cooking with him and learning some new tricks and recipes while I stayed with them in Laguna. Kasey and Cam grew up in the same town in Northern Michigan but re-connected years later on a dating app. They live in Walla Walla, WA but decided to elope in Laguna Beach, CA where Kasey's family has a vacation home.
We had the best time scouting, cooking a taco feast, shredding carrots for the wedding cake Cam made, and styling beautiful vignettes to make their intimate and private wedding day truly unique. Top of the World Park provided the perfect backdrop for their ceremony and Table Rock was perfect for some moodier portraits at the end of the day. My favorite detail has to be Kasey's cape, which was designed by Laurie Haluska, who also did the costumes for Return of the Jedi.
Their beautiful Laguna Beach elopement was featured on Martha Stewart Weddings.
