Belinda & Ivan
Santa Cruz, CA
Belinda & Ivan flew up from Southern California to elope with their families in Henry Cowell State Park. The two are very into nature so it was the perfect spot for them. As the day approached I saw rain in the forecast, while I don’t mind the rain I wasn’t sure how Belinda & Ivan would feel about a rainy wedding day. We showed up greeted by a light drizzle. At the start of their beautiful and intimate ceremony in the redwoods there was a little rain but by the end of the ceremony we were all basically getting drenched. Their ceremony was beautiful and fitting for this couple. They had a ring warming where the rings were passed and had their love poured into them during their ceremony, a little touch that I loved. We signed wedding papers by cellphone light under a small tent and then ran around in the rain in the redwoods to capture their love for each other and nature. The perfect rainy day elopement.
