From the Photographer:

Chelsea and Mike are an adventure-loving couple who first met at a 5K and even went snowboarding on their first date. They chose a location close to the beach with fresh sea air for their summertime wedding. Greenery was the theme, with lots of eucalyptus and a crisp green and white color scheme.

The florals were all DIY’d by the bride and her mom with the help of wholesale flowers by Blooms by the Box, making it a full team effort. Unfortunately, COVID forced the couple to cancel our original plans, but it really allowed them to get back to the basics of what the day was really about: celebrating love.
