“We were thinking Cannon Beach area for our Oregon intimate wedding!” is what I remember Martyka telling me when we talked wedding stuff. So we got to work on viewing all the options near Cannon Beach for an elopement/intimate wedding that were nearly as crowded, and just as epic.
One thing people don’t realize, is that Plan Bs and flexibility are good to have. A couple weeks before we were set to capture their wedding at Hug Point, I FaceTimed them at another beach nearby.
“We LOVE that beach!” – and that was that. Their ceremony located was moved a few miles down the road. Easy as that. Now, I wouldn’t recommend doing that repeatedly, but it’s TOTALLY possible! It’s partly why I keep my couples’ timelines a little looser than a minute by minute account of what we’ll be doing all day. They ended up staying at the Surfsand Resort, which is right in the heart of Cannon Beach, which is close by, so no one felt rushed.
Martyka and Steve came down from Vancouver, BC to celebrate with their closest friends, family, and DOGGOS. Yes. Every guest was told they should bring their dogs.
*Cue me internally squealing at all the floofs.*
