Best Time of the Year
When planning your elopement at The Oregon Coast keep in mind that all the rain it receives is what makes Oregon so lush and magical ( It also means that there is a good chance your wedding vows may get a little soggy. Embrace it! If you’re looking for sunny beach weather, you might not get it. However, picking a wedding date in July, August, or September will probably increase your chances of sunshine. These are the driest, warmest months of the year but also the most popular.
When to have your ceremony
If you ask me the best time to elope I will always tell you definitely during the week and in the morning or early evening. Make sure when choosing the time to exchange your vows you choose early morning or late evening when lighting is as its best! When planning any elopement near the ocean you always want to be sure to check the weather forecast and most definitely the tides. At low tide you can access some pretty great places especially near Haystack Rock and Chapman Point!

Michael Williams of Redbird Ceremonies was amazing to work with. He was patient as we choose a new ceremony spot since the location changed due to a landslide in the area!
I know you may think it's unnecessary but it just completes those beautiful details shots. Brooklyn of The Artisan Abode is so talented and brings a whole new level to the stationary game. She can take your vows and turn them into art on paper and so much more.
