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!
