Deciding to do an adventure elopement is always a good idea! This elopement was the perfect amount of playful and intimate. We had so much fun exploring the beach, climbing on rocks and rolling around in the black sand! The Black Beach in Silver Bay, Minnesota is an exceptional place to have your adventure elopement!

An Adventure Elopement Is A Must!

An adventure elopement is always a fantastic idea in my books! Whenever I get to be a part of my couples elopement everything feels much more special to the couple and to myself. The best part about going the elopement route is that you can literally do whatever you and your partner want. The three of us were able to be so adventurous which is exactly why I like elopements SO much! Plus, you get the nontraditional wedding photos that are out of this world stunning!!

Their Perfect + Special Day

I loved how it was, literally, just the two of them (and me) running around this huge beach together! The black sand created this very boho moody vibe and we all were soo obsessed. They did everything exactly how they wanted to and it was everything that they wanted it to be and more. Being able to capture their intimate moments together sitting at their sweetheart table and rolling around in the sand was my favorite part. You could feel the love between the two of them radiate and it made for an extra beautiful time together. We got the raw and intimate moments – which are absolutely stunning!

Get In The Water + Roll In The Sand

It’s your elopement right? So my take is – do whatever your heart desires! That’s the beauty of choosing an elopement over a traditional wedding. Roll around in the sand if you want, run through the freezing cold water if you want, pop a bottle of champagne if you want… because it’s YOUR DAY!
