Ethereal Elopement Along Tofino Coastline…an intimate wedding on the beaches of Vancouver Island’s beautiful west coast. Radia + Derek embraced the opportunity to have the adventure of a lifetime. They exchanged vows with a backdrop of ocean waves and moody skies.

Radia + Derek had planned for a big wedding, but fate intervened and gifted them the wedding of their dreams. The two decided to bring their closest friends together in Tofino for an intimate ceremony and celebration on the beach. Pollen& Co. created a floral backdrop to compliment the ocean view. At first, nature did not cooperate, but West Coasters are used to that, and everyone just chilled for a bit. The perfect moment arrived, and everyone came together to listen as Radia + Derek exchanged vows. Their wedding party of one flower girl and their dogs were especially rapt!

Afterward, the famous Tacofino tacos and the couple’s favorite jelly doughnuts were served. I wish we were there for that! Of course, there were drinks to toast the newlyweds.

We love the three bridal gowns that Radia rocked. One dress was waiting in the wings when the bride saw the blush gown online. She rented it from Taylor Dawning Photography, a huge part of their day. Taylor, the owner of Taylor Dawning, surprised Radia with another unique gown – and a hat! So Radia was blessed with three gorgeous gowns for her day – what bride doesn’t dream of that? She escorted the couple through a six-hour photo shoot. The grey weather gave it a mystical feel for some pretty epic shots.

The newlyweds finished their day with a celebration dinner at Long Beach Lodge and returned to their friends who had been having their party! Radia + Derek could not have been happier with their ethereal elopement along the Tofino coastline. She says, “We had no plan at all, and it just ended up amazing! It is so much more emotional than we thought it would be. It was so, so perfect, and all our guests are still talking about it. I have a smile just thinking about it. The most intimate, perfect wedding we could have had.” Congrats to Radia + Derek on their Tofino elopement!
