Adventure Elopement + Canoe Romance…so you would like to have an adventure elopement in true west coast style, but you are not up to hiking to the top of a cliff? No worries! You can have that west coast adventure vibe, and all that nature has to offer by eloping in a canoe. Or, after your ceremony, peacefully paddle off with your photographer for those quiet moments together—a truly romantic way to spend some time together on your wedding day.

There is so much to love in this ‘canoe for two’ elopement inspiration palette.  The colours are so beautiful together – blues, purples, and pinks all pop against the water and make the canoe look so pretty! The canoe is a canvas unto itself for the newlyweds. Stolen kisses and snuggling are required, obviously.

The bride and groom are perfectly dressed for their canoe adventure. The groom is rocking an open white shirt with beige pants while the bride looks gorgeous in a lace gown with a short train. Yes, we noticed those tassels! The side slit is perfect for climbing in and out of a canoe – practicality wrapped up in white lace.

PRO TIP: So you want to have a wedding canoe shoot, but how do you afford all those flowers? Filling a canoe is no small floral task, but here are a few ways to do it without breaking the bank. Use your reception flowers in the canoe, and afterward, transfer them to your tables. Add the bride’s and bridesmaid’s bouquets. Did you have ceremony flowers? Add those too! And ask friends to cut a lot of greenery just prior to your ceremony and use that as the ‘filler’ in the canoe before adding your flowers. Voila! A canoe full of flowers!

We love everything about this adventure elopement + canoe romance. The west coast vibes are perfect! One caveat…be sure your photographer is a canoe enthusiast as well, or you won’t get photos on the water! Adventure newlyweds canoe Vancouver Island's ocean edge by Amanda Reed
