Julia & Matt’s Joyful Elopement at Rockwater Secret Cove Resort

Elopement portrait at Rockwater

Julia stood under an Arbutus tree waiting to see Matt for the first time that afternoon. Matt came around the corner and after seeing Julia in her beautiful custom made wedding dress, yelled “You look f#$&ing amazing!”. They both laughed and then cried as they held each other. Julia & Matt sparkled with joy during their elopement at Rockwater Secret Cove Resort. There is something special about a couple choosing to celebrate their love with a ceremony just for themselves.¬†We felt honoured to be with Julia & Matt that day, witnessing the love and tenderness between them.

Julia & Matt, you truly are a wonderful couple. Thank you so much for sharing your elopement with us. Congratulations!

    You were made for each other and I couldn't be happier. You both looked amazing and the location was perfect. To Julia....even though you are now married you have been a part of our family from the beginning.
    To the photographers...your pictures were beautiful and you captured the magic of the moment perfectly. Matthew and Julia were extremely pleased with your work and had nothing but great things to say about you. Thank you for making their day a memorable one.
