Aahhh…I love working with Vanna from Elope Mendocino!
Remember the sunset elopement with Michael and Michelle in Westport as well? Oh…it was a gorgeous one! You can find the link to it here.
Sheila and James decided to take time for just themselves and elope sans friends and family. It’s easy to get so caught up in planning a wedding, you can easily forget what it’s really about.
So with all that in mind, Sheila decided to not try to figure it all out and make plans for all the kids & family to join in. Nope, the two of them traveled to the Mendocino Coast and got hitched alone.
Even with a few hiccups along the way, the ceremony turned out just beautiful…a sun-drenched, sand-ceremony with the gorgeous Pacific ocean in the background.
I sure hope I am able to photograph and witness more Elopements in 2013…truly small, intimate ceremonies are becoming something of a favorite of mine. Enjoy your images Sheila and James!

And after we said our goodbyes, Vanna and I stayed and ate some dinner in the restaurant while this was happening right outside…
