Elopement in Oregon in April

Samantha, on November 9, 2018 at 11:05 AM Posted in Oregon Planning 0 4

We are heading out to Oregon the end of April to elope. A friend of ours is getting ordained and her and her husband are coming with us so we will not need to find an officiant or witnesses. I want to get married by the ocean but my fiance wants to take advantage of all the greenery. We have found a few spots that have both but they are a few miles hike and that is to far to pack/wear a dress. We really just need someplace romantic and beautiful but not busy we can stop to have a quick ceremony and take some pictures. Any suggestions?

Oh, and if there is a spot for dinner and dancing afterwards would be a bonus.

    Hey Samantha! We recently eloped in Cape Kiwanda on top of the dunes and then drove the coast of Oregon down to Cali. All of Oregon is beautiful- you honestly can’t go wrong. I think Ecola State Park would be a great compromise. It has all of the greenery your FH is looking for and the ocean you’re looking for. Here’s a link to a recent elopement with pics! https://junebugweddings.com/wedding-blog/enchanting-ecola-state-park-elopement-oregon-coast/

    Hi Samantha! Your elopement plans sound absolutely lovely! Smiley heart The coast near Florence, OR there are many state/national parks and beaches where it transitions from gorgeous trees & greenery to the ocean--- The best of both worlds!

    I totally agree with Melinda, the entire coast is beautiful and you really can't go wrong. Smiley heart She has some great insight and recomendations in the previous comment, too! Smiley heart

    We decided on Cannon Beach, we think it has everything we are looking for.
