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 – 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.
I’m so happy they asked me to work with them on their day – they were so welcoming & warm. Cheers to the happy couples & cheers to planning as the plan a second, larger wedding for this year.
I'm a lifetime photographer that documents your milestones - from weddings to motherhood & all the moments in-between.
I'm based in Pleasanton, California where I live with my husband, our pup and way too many house plants.
