Lori and Kyle kept their nuptials, simple, meaningful and intimate with only a handful of their closest relatives and friends present at their cliff top ceremony in California.
Megan of the fabulous wedding blog, Glamour and Grace, is one of Lori’s best friends and she’s also a bit of a whizz behind the camera so she documented their special day for them.
Lori was effortlessly elegant in her Ann Taylor gown with a pleated bodice, side bun and flowers in her hair while Kyle kept it smart casual. They both accessorized with big, happy grins throughout the day!
First up, a few photos to set the scene…
Can you believe that Lori’s vibrant purple bouquet is made from stems bought at Trader Joe’s that morning?!
A Beautiful Elopement Film by Imprint Cinema
Imprint Cinema were also on hand to capture all the beauty, joy and intimacy of Lori and kyle’s wedding in motion.
Including a dreamy trek through The Enchanted Forest (yes it’s actually a real forest, in San Simeon) and their beautiful vows to each other. Their wedding film is sweet, gentle and oh so beautiful.
Oh and FYI this is the first time I’ve ever seen a bride in hoodie and Lori makes it look so darn cool!
What a precious way to remember their day, don’t you think?
From the Lori and Kyle: We wanted a very small and intimate ceremony, so we just had our parents and siblings there, as well as Kyle’s best friend who acted as our officiant and Lori’s best friend who was our photographer.
We did not want a big wedding because we felt as though the commitment we were making at our wedding was something very personal and so we wanted to keep that moment intimate. We chose our ceremony location during a road trip up the California coast the year earlier. The Enchanted Forest in San Simeon had all the gorgeous scenery, without the crowds and people.
We wanted everything simple and did not want to make a big production. In the morning we bought a few stems at Trader Joe’s and Lori’s sister and friend put them together for a bouquet. After a short hike out to the cliffs we picked the perfect place and said our vows as the fog rolled in. We wanted the ceremony to be true to us and this was “us.”
Many thanks to Lori and Kyle for sharing their wedding with us today, wishing you both all the best for married life.
Are any of you lovelies eloping?
