Today we have for you a stunning Sunshine Coast British Columbia Elopement. Coco Photography captured the warm, intimate, relaxed and natural wedding day for Meagan + Chris. It was a picture perfect day for their wedding which took place at Casa Christa, a private estate in Madeira Park.
See all the beauty below!
How did you meet?
We first met at a welcome bbq at grad school.
Tell us your proposal story!
We were on a hike in a beautiful marine park in BC. We took a break on a tiny island and that’s where Chris proposed. He was carrying the ring with him the whole trip. It was perfect, and with nothing but the wilderness around us it was so special. We celebrated that night with a fantastic seafood dinner and a kayak getaway the next day.
What was the inspiration behind your wedding?
It was important to us to have a warm, intimate, relaxed, and natural setting by the ocean. We wanted to share our love for one of our favorite wild west coast places with our closest friends and family. In the end it was driven by wanting to bring the people we loved together to enjoy good local food, wine, and company!
What was your favorite part of your wedding day?
Tough question! For Chris it was seeing his bride for the first time walking down the aisle. For Meagan it was looking around at the ceremony and seeing all the faces of the people from our lives together in one place – very moving. But we both also loved those few quiet moments we had between the ceremony and reception, just the two of us by the beach in the wilderness. Where we could just be together and take it all in. We really treasure those.
What is one piece of wedding planning advice you have for our readers?
Plan some time during your day for you two to just step back from the celebration, take a breath, and soak it all up. The day goes by so fast.
Where did you go on your honeymoon?
We haven’t yet. We’re thinking of Hawaii. Aloha!
