Married in Big SUr, California

Ben + Lauren


Ben and Lauren decided they were going to do things a little differently. Instead of a traditional ceremony and reception, they chose to elope while camping with their golden retriever Ziggy. When they first told me this, I thought I was dreaming. I never thought I'd get to combine my love for dogs, marriage, and the great outdoors all in one amazing weekend!

Nestled in the mountains of eastern Big Sur (where Lauren grew up going with her family), Ben and Lauren spent two nights camping and exploring the moon-like rocks. They exchanged vows under the pouring rain, celebrated with fireworks and champagne, snuggled up by the fire with their pup, and slept in the coolest canvas tent. Four months after the elopement, they celebrated with friends and family and played this video to show all the friends and family what an amazing adventure they had!
