There’s something truly romantic and inspiring about being at the coast, and Cuffey’s Cove Ranch in Elk, California was the perfect blend of countryside and rugged that we wanted as the backdrop for this inspirational elopement shoot. We imagined our sweet couple waking up in the beautiful and historic Kenney House with the gorgeous California light streaming through the windows; and then sharing vows on the cliffs bordering the Pacific Ocean.

A cozy and welcoming environment was created in the dinning room, taking our cures from the ranch, house, and coast. The beautiful tabletop added the perfect amount of elegant, minimal and textural touches. Along with crafted cocktails and lush but simple floral arrangements, the room was glowing with romance.

Our beautiful couple Kevin and Priscilla are the sweetest people, and were absolutely perfect for the feel we imagined – and the genuine sweet romance we wanted to show. Priscilla looked like a goddess with her gown blowing in the wind, her sleek, low hairstyle, and her stunning bouquet. It was not hard to be inspired in such a beautiful setting. The sun was warm on our skin and the breeze carried the delicious salty air through our hair. Days like that makes us want to get married all over again, and remind us truly how wonderful love and life can be. At the end of the shoot, we all took a moment to sit together and toast to what had been a truly beautiful day!
