Like many couples this year, an elopement was not Ruby and Tyler’s first choice. For a Plan B, this did not turn out too bad! 

With the permits only allowing 10 guests, they had to be very frugal with their invitations. On a beautiful misty day in March, they were married on a cliffside in Garrapata State Park, Big Sur.

Surrounded by their families, and enveloped with love, they had an unconventional tequila shot to seal the deal as they were married. 

A romantic first dance, and a small walk into the woodland for some couple photos. The mist did not lift all day, it just added to the ethereal beauty of this bride.
