This Big Sur Elopement Features a Dramatic Train and Goosebump-Inducing Views

September 26, 2019 | Junebug Weddings

We’ve never seen a Big Sur elopement like Madison and Kanyon’s Big Sur elopement, and we are so here for it! If you haven’t already noticed, Madison’s captivating, three-piece, custom made Harriett Falvey gown has the most dramatically awesome train we’ve ever seen. With a dress like that, you must have a bouquet that lives up to it, and Love in Bloom did not disappoint with an absolutely stunning bouquet. The couple adventured with Zoe Steindl Photo, who so brilliantly captured the majesty of not only the amazing location but also the sweet connection between the two. We can wait for you to see these photographs!

The Couple:

Madison & Kanyon

The Wedding:

Garrapata State Park, Big Sur, CA

The most memorable part of the day was getting to see my husband’s face when he looked at me in my dress for the first time. I’ll never forget the look on his face!

We only had our photographer, florist, and dress designer we LOVED them all and would recommend them again and again, but I do have to say a really good photographer can really make or break your day and we are so glad we went with Zoe. Not only is her work amazing but we felt comfortable, we had fun, and we felt like we were hanging out with a good friend.

The dress I wore was from designer in New Zeland! She custom made the dress after I found her through IG, and we messaged back and forth for a bit. I knew I wanted a long and dramatic train since it was going to be just us and I didn’t have to worry about people stepping on it. The dress is called ‘Utterly Bias’ it is made out of three separate garments that are all cut on the bias and designed so they can each be worn again after the wedding day – not sure when you would wear the skirt (lol) but always the chance of shortening it.

We knew we wanted to elope somewhere beautiful. It’s crazy to think people spend so much money on a venue (not that there’s anything wrong with that) when you can use the beauty of nature as your venue. We currently live about 30 minutes away from the spot we chose and when we first moved to California it was a spot we loved exploring so it was a no brainer when it came to choosing “our perfect venue”. You really can’t beat the cliffs overlooking the ocean and when the fog rolls in it just makes everything so much more dramatic.
