We did it! Ron and I are married! We successfully pulled off a secret international elopement in Moorea, French Polynesia, and it was hands-down the most the most wildly-romantic, sweetest, and magical day of all time, ever.
I’m working on a full, future post about it, so I don’t want to spoil it by saying too much right now, but I will say that the day involved a pretty hilarious legal ceremony with the mayor of Moorea, a sweet personal vow exchange on a small, private island at sunset, and hundreds and hundreds of beautiful little flowers – some even made it into my hair!

And then for the honeymoon! I didn’t use my camera as much as I should have, because I was paranoid about sand and water destruction, but I did manage to snap a few shots of our beautiful island. Crystal clear, bright aqua, WARM ocean water was definitely the highlight of the island, and we spent 12 out of 14 days in the water and on the beach.
More to come! Much, MUCH more.
With Adrien and his guys preparing offsite, I spent a ton of time with Mary and her girls before this gorgeous beach club wedding in San Clemente, California.
Mary just might be the most easy-going bride in the world. She gave the girls a color to work with and had them surprise her with their dresses the day of the wedding. I couldn’t get enough of all the pink! It added a softness that seemed to gently permeate the entire day.
And, because no beach club wedding is complete without a trip to the actual beach, Adrien and Mary took some time to sneak away from their reception during the early evening and take advantage of that delicious southern California golden light. Just a little preview to whet your appetite – more images of these two are in the works!
