With the weather being so cold and rainy lately and Christmas right around the corner, it is so much fun to dream about a lovely beach wedding! Marissa and Brian’s small shipwrecked beach elopement is definitely one for the books! It has so many gorgeous rustic shipwrecked details, and the small easy going feeling of the elopement will definitely make you wish for a small wedding!

From Kristen Booth, the photographer: “This wedding was the ultimate of intimate weddings. I loved the vision behind it. Marissa and Brian wanted to feel carefree on their wedding day. They didn’t want to worry about schedules and how much time they could spend with their guests. They just wanted a beautiful landscape to say “I do” and a fun celebration with those closest to them, and they definitely got their wish! Their elopement was shipwrecked themed and took place in La Jolla. I fell in love with Brian and Marissa in the short time I got to know them. They are a perfect pair and it didn’t take long to see that. Their love story started, when they began dating and Brian told Marissa, ‘I don’t want to waste my time, or yours, and I want to date to find the woman to spend the rest of my life with. If you think that can be you, stick around.’  This romance turned into a 4 year relationship 3 of which were spent long distance, but they made it work. Marissa says this is because they define love as a choice. She went on to tell me this: ‘We know not every day is going to be like the honeymoon, but we understand we have to make each other fall in love again every single day. After spending 3 out of our 4 years together in a long distance relationship, we have had to learn that first hand. We know love isn’t 50-50, because if one person isn’t giving their all then the relationship is not 100% met. We both have to give 100% everyday, especially in long distance.’ I love that, I love how they love each other. I love how this day was the perfect celebration of exactly that, true, deep, and unconditional love.”

This lovely elopement is definitely a real life fairy tale, making Kristen Booth the perfect photographer for this event! Check out more of this stunning fairy tale shipwrecked elopement, I am sure it will have you wishing for an intimate affair just like it!
