Adventurous Monterey, California Intimate Wedding

Who wouldn’t want to get married on the beach overlooking Monterey Bay, California while a hurricane is wrapping up?! Laura Minor Photography. From the retro van to running along the beach, this was a dream elopement.

Sara and Dane’s adventurous Monterey, California intimate wedding took place just as a hurricane was wrapping up. Yep, you read that right. With gusts of 45+ mph, it made for an incredibly windy day by the ocean. Sara and Dane truly couldn’t have cared less, though. Witnessing such a genuine, carefree couple profess their love for one another is such an incredible experience.

The morning of Sara and Dane’s intimate wedding, Sara got ready in a hotel before heading to the beach. Sara’s dad drove her up to the location in a groovy red van that belongs to the family. As Sara began to walk down the stairs to meet Dane, their closest friends and family stood near. Dane had tears in his eyes, while Sara couldn’t stop beaming from ear to ear. They had such a beautiful ceremony, despite the wind whistling through.

After their ceremony and some family photos, it was time for the romantics. Sara and Dane were such a “go-with-the-flow” couple. They were more than willing to climb up the rocks in the ocean for some epic shots, run through the sand, and truly just let their personalities show. I had such a fun time capturing the love between Sara and Dane the dreamiest adventurous Monterey, California intimate wedding anyone could imagine.
