This day with Lyka and Ken is for sure a fav. These two were seriously the absolute BEST to work with and were all smiles and giggles the whole entire day! I honestly have to pinch myself at every wedding I shoot cause I can’t believe how lucky I get with all of my amazing couples! Also huuuuge shout out to The Barns at Cooper Molera in Monterey, California because it was the literal best location for this beachy, boho chic/modern elopement!
We started out the day with the most intimate ceremony in front of the prettiest most lush green trees and the couple was surrounded by the most simple, yet stunning and classy floral arrangement! The half circle floral ceremony backdrops are a trend that I am ALL HERE FOR. They’re especially amazing for elopements because they’re easy to transport/set up so if you’re doing an adventure elopement (hint hint lol) it’s the perfect ceremony backdrop to bring along, instead of trying to hike with some huge wooden arch or something like that!
The Barns at Cooper Molera in Monterey, California was also perfect because it has the cutest rustic feel which could be dressed however you wanted! Rustic, boho, modern, edgy, the barn could be styled any way you could imagine! After the ceremony we went inside where the cuuuuutest setup was waiting with the yummiest little bread/fruit/cheese platter at the cutest lil whiskey bar I’ve ever seen!
Following that, we had dinner which btw the sweetheart table that was waiting for the couple was hands down the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. Sooo much detail and thought went into the design and the colors and it was just incredible!
The Barns at Cooper Molera are also amazing because we were able to drive about 5 mins away to the coast for sunset and take the most amazing beachy pics with the most beautiful cliffs and greenery everrrrr! I am in loooove with the boho beach vibe for any elopement/wedding and this was the absolute dream to end the night!
Lastly, just want to say how grateful I am to work with some of the best people out there and for all of these freakin amazing experiences I get to capture!! Mad shoutout and props to my amazing couple and these vendors below for the most littttt Monterey, California elopement!
