Redwood coast elopement. Golden hour chaser. Spending time in the trees or dipping your toes in extremely cold water never fails to recenter at least a little bit of this bonkers world. Having grown up on wide open prairie, I still get giddy at the sight of the ocean. Courtney and Jeffrey split their romantic elopement session between Prairie Creek Redwoods and Luffenholtz Beach – two of my favorite Humboldt locations. The couple had a no fuss courthouse ceremony in their home state before they hopped on a plane to California. They got ready in an Airbnb not far from Sue-Meg State Park and had a dreamy first look on the garden steps.
