Three things one should always bring to a redwood wedding: adorable dogs, adorable humans and amazing boots. This Wedding Rock elopement in Sue-Meg State Park checked all of those boxes. Not to mention the dress was elegant and perfectly suited to the rocky and windy terrain. Pro-tip: if you are getting married on the Northern California coast, make sure your dress takes advantage of the frequent coastal tempests – think trailing artfully in the breeze or swirling down craggy stone steps. Also another great reason to wear a veil… and a properly secured one at that.
