West Coast River Lodge Romance…an elopement filled with love and laughter. Add to that lace, a picnic plus a rustic venue and you have the perfect ceremony for two. Triangle backdrop with hanging picnic board and newlyweds kissing

Elopements have become a necessity for the last year but it has also focused a lot of creative imagination into saying your vows intimately. Soon. we will be able to add guests again but the beautiful quietness and luxury will stay. Sweetheart tables filled with flowers, candles and food too pretty to eat make for unforgettable moments that are here to stay.West Coast River Lodge newlyweds pose against stone wall on Vancouver Island 

The West Coast River Lodge is an amazing venue for this elopement tableau. Our couple share their hanging table for two with charcuterie and wedding cake. We love the pampas grass, greenery and flowers that grace the tableau. Stone walls, ferns and wood doors make perfect photo backdrops for this picnic elopement.

The highlight of this bridal palette is, of course, the gorgeous off the shoulder bridal gown featuring a fringed bodice and lace overlay.. The dramatic dress is paired with a brown felt hat and bouquet of  eucalyptus greenery and white flowers. Our groom stays with the relaxed boho look wearing a black fitted shirt. The bride graces a veil for the ceremony before changing out to the more casual chapeau look. West Coast River Lodge Romance newlyweds by Allison Dawn Photography
