Vibrant Morning Beach Elopement Inspiration

morning beach elopement

Mornings feel like an underrated time of day to tie the knot, right? We’re not sure why, but maybe it’s the daunting idea of making your closest friends + family members get up at the break of dawn to celebrate with you. (Yeah, that could be it!) At the same time, there is just so much to love about the morning. The dreamy light, the sense of peace + quiet…and let’s be real: pancakes + mimosas!

If you love the idea, but aren’t sure how it would go over with your guests, a morning beach elopement may be just be the thing for you! And today’s shoot – sent over by Olivia Leigh PhotographyJ29 Events Planning & Design + Flora Organica Designs – sets such a gorgeous, vibrant scene for an intimate seaside vow exchange with your one and only, followed by a yummy picnic breakfast feast!

Loving this punchy pink + green bouquet! The perfect contrast against a neutral background of sand + sea.

How great is the alter the team created? An easy DIY to try (for any locale) by stacking crates + lanterns and decorating with branches + blooms.
