A couple weeks ago I went on a little (5hr drive) road trip down to Cape Kiwanda, Pacific City, Oregon with Erika Hernandez, the owner of The Greatest Adventure Wedding & Elopements . The weather was a typical Pacific Northwest rain. Rain that would not stop for days.
As we reached our final destination in Cape Kiwanda, the clouds started to break and the sun was trying its hardest to come out. The Oregon Coast is beautiful. Cape Kiwanda has a giant sand dune that you can climb up and explore the top where you can see the big cliffs and crashing waves. This beach is also one of the only beaches that you can drive your vehicle out onto the sand!
We checked into Hart's Camp, a newly opened vintage and modern airstream camp site just one block away from Cape Kiwanda. It is the ultimate luxury glamping experience! Let me tell you, this airstream campsite was the cutest campsite I had ever seen! There were fat black bunnies all over the place, happily hopping around the campsites and an outdoor rainfall shower with a vertical succulent and fern garden. If it wasn’t 7˚C (45˚F) rainy and wet, I would have tried the outdoor shower.
As a makeup artist you never know where you will be getting ready and having the proper equipment is crucial. I never leave home without The Makeup Light and on this trip it served as my light for getting Paean ready as well as lighting up our airstream when the sun went down. Bonus!!
Gabi and Brandon Fox, an awesome wife and husband photography duo, of The Foxes Photography, shot this inspired elopement. Our luck ran out as soon as we walked over to the beach. The sun slid back behind the clouds and it started raining again! Our couple, Paean and Nick, embraced the weather and had fun outside. Who doesn’t love playing outside in the rain? Ok, maybe not in a wedding dress.
