Santa Cruz City Hall and Beachside Elopement | Mandy + Piers

February 4, 2020

Love Stories

Mandy and Piers elopement at City Hall in Santa Cruz was a blast and perfect to who they are. The two knew they wanted to tie the knot at City Hall with their family there, but they also wanted to do a first look on the beach ā€“ a place they both love. Before their ceremony, we met at Lighthouse Field State Park & Surf Museum for Mandy to tap on Piers shoulder for that first look moment.

After, we headed to the Santa Cruz Courthouse lawn for the two to say I do in front of their family. They ended their afternoon with a nice a lunch and took off to their Air B&B for the weekend. Nothing better than saying yes to your partner in the morning and ending the evening with them relaxing along the West Coast.

Iā€™m so happy they asked me to work with them on their day ā€“ they were so welcoming & warm. Cheers to the happy couples & cheers to planning as the plan a second, larger wedding for this year.
