Nature lovers Page + Taylor knew they wanted a wedding that was fun and light-hearted in spite of the trials that 2020 threw at them. That’s why they decided to elope in the Redwoods! A misty day gave way to stunning ocean views and intimate woodland moments. P + T also let their sense of style shine in their attire. P rocked an absolutely stunning floral wedding dress, but we’ll share more on that later! Here’s what she shared about their overall inspiration for the day:
Our inspiration was to have something light and joyful in such a chaotic year. We knew we wanted to say our vows in nature and we’ve always felt really connected to the Redwoods. It was important that we made our wedding bands together, wrote personal vows together, and created playlists together. We wanted it to be a day completely about us.
Are you ready to see their magical day through the lens of Dawn Jarvis? Let’s go!

A Floral Wedding Dress and A Woodland Setting
Charles Wright officiated the ceremony in the middle of a Redwood grove. Can you imagine yourself getting married in the middle of Nature? If that’s a yes, be sure to check out these 14 Must-See Forest Weddings!
Taylor: the most memorable moment was right after we finished our ceremony in the redwoods and Charles pronounced us husband and wife, and Page said “woah!”
Page: for me, it was reading my vows and looking at Taylor with mist in his eyes. It felt like we were the only two people on the planet. It was so real.
Both rings came from Ravens Refuge, a custom fine jewelry brand in Portland.
Brier + Ivy created a gorgeous bouquet to complement the florals on P’s gown. If you look closely, you can see the white, beige and blue blossoms in the embroidery!
Talk to each other and communicate. Celebrate yourselves and your relationship in a way that matters most to you. If you have a nature wedding, leave no trace. And HAVE FUN!!!! Sometimes we forget to do that :-)
Celebrating on the Beach
Two views can perfectly sum up the beauty of the PNW. A Redwood grove and the rocky shores of the Pacific Ocean.
We just love the flowy shoulder cape pieces on this gown!!
Congratulations Page + Taylor! We absolutely adore your Nature-filled wedding and of course, that unique floral wedding dress. So gorgeous! The GWS Team is wishing you both many more adventures to come!
