Puerto Rico was the first trip we took together, and travel is a big part of our relationship – so it has always held a special place in our hearts. We didn’t have a wedding party so much as a party wedding: a welcome party at a beach bar, a post-wedding food truck party, and then an island trip on a catamaran a few days later! Really we just wanted our friends and family to come travel with us for a week.
So you’re considering an Oregon Coast elopement, but maybe feeling a bit intimidated about the logistics of a romantic trek into the wilderness. We got you!
We first met at the Warped Tour — we’re both musicians and huge fans of pop-punk. So of course we decided to have an emo wedding on a music festival cruise put on by the band Coheed & Cambria!
Bria and Derek had a relaxed 50-guest Lake Tahoe wedding. Everything about their lakeside wedding is simply breathtaking, from their color palette to Bria’s gorgeous blue Wai Ching wedding dress!
We had no decor, only the crashing waves and stormy skies. Our friend and officiant started the ceremony with a reading of a poem JRR Tolkien wrote for his wife.
We had a big wedding planned. We had bridesmaids and everything! But during the pandemic… We decided to just take off without telling anyone and get married. We used nature as our decoration and it was more perfect than the big wedding we were planning ever could have been.
