Gina and Jeff tied the knot with an intimate Cannon Beach wedding in Oregon surrounded by the natural beauty that left everyone in awe. The sky painted in warm tones of gold, red, and orange contrasted perfectly with the azure waters of the Pacific Ocean. The dunes and tall grasses moved in the breeze, setting the stage for a beautiful wedding that celebrated their story. Erica Guenther w/ Events By Erie helped design and coordinate everything with the best.
Gina and Jeff decided to make their wedding celebration a multi-day experience for everyone. They held a welcome gathering the day before followed by a late night gathering on the beach surrounded by dozens of large candles. “Choosing to have an intimate Cannon Beach wedding ceremony was our best decision,” said Gina. “The natural beauty of the landscape made it the perfect backdrop for our special day. It’s a place where the magic happens.” Jeff said, “It’s hard to describe the sense of wonder and awe that you feel when you’re here. It’s like nothing else matters, and all you can focus on is the beauty of the moment.”
The ceremony was small with their closest family and friends, radiating with joy. Jeff’s eyes locked in on Gina as he felt a massive wave of feeling flow through him. As they exchanged vows, emotions radiated through everyone. Time seemed to stop.
“Being here, surrounded by the beauty of nature and our loved ones, was a dream come true,” said Gina. Jeff said, “It’s a moment we’ll never forget, an experience that will last the rest of our lives.”
As the sun set a massive rainbow appeared and a red-orange glow filled the sky. Everyone continued celebrating at a nearby restaurant called “The Bistro Cannon Beach,” where guests were treated to a feast of local cuisine and fine wine. Conversations, speeches, cake-cutting, and a fun first dance brought everyone together so beautifully.
“Cannon Beach is such a beautiful icon of Oregon; it was the perfect backdrop for our family and friends,” said Gina. Jeff said, “It’s a place where you can truly connect with your loved ones and with the natural world. It’s a reminder of the beauty of life and the importance of enjoying every moment.”
