Cathedral Grove Elopement Qualicum Beach BC | Brittney & Rachel

When I got the email asking if I was available to photograph Brittney & Rachels' relaxed and romantic Cathedral Grove elopement, I was ecstatic. Not only is Cathedral Grove absolutely STUNNING, but I had been dreaming of photographing a couples intimate wedding there for as long as I can remember.  There is something so special about being tucked away, deep in the forest amongst the cedar giants of this enchanted forest, some trees as old as 800 years. 

Brittney & Rachel chose a quiet spot nestled off one of the walking trails and were undisturbed during their sweet ceremony, just their two friends present to witness them. After the ceremony was complete, celebratory champagne was shared before we adventured off for portraits. Mother Nature had been threatening rain all day but it wasn't until we hopped in our cars at the end of the event that the raindrops started to fall. It was a perfect celebration. 

If you're planning an intimate wedding or elopement & are a wild heart that loves the outdoors, be sure to check out my other wedding venue locations and resources created to inspire.
And of course, be sure to get in touch if you feel connected to my work. I'd love to create magical images for your big day.
