Glen Oaks Big Sur Elopement | Kane + Rafa
I had to share this beautiful, down-to-earth Glen Oaks Big Sur elopement. Kane and Rafa truly carried the energy for the whole experience – they radiated joy, closeness, and an authentic sense of themselves. With only them and their two dearest friends present, it felt like the perfect way to celebrate such an intimate wedding, surrounded by the beauty of the Big Sur redwoods. And as if on cue, the sun’s gentle rays streamed through the trees, casting a warm and welcoming glow upon them during their ceremony.
THE PERKS OF A GLEN OAKS BIG SUR ELOPEMENT IN THE REDWOODS
Glen Oaks stands out thanks to its peaceful location amidst the Redwoods, right on the edge of the Big Sur River. The riverside cabins are modern, stylish, and cozy. Let’s not forget the towering Redwood trees, an on-site restaurant serving breakfast and lunch, and some cabins with outdoor bathtubs. It’s an elopement dream come true. You can fill out the contact form on their website if you want to know more for pricing, guest limits, and or extra services.

A RADIANT ELOPEMENT CEREMONY AMIDST THE CALIFORNIA REDWOODS
Kane and Rafa’s story began at Coachella back in 2018. Thanks to a mutual friend who organized lodging for a big group, these two hit it off and have been inseparable ever since. Over the next four years, their journey included laughter, countless new memories, and plenty of beer. When it came to their Big Sur elopement, they wanted it to mirror their relationship – fun and intimate!
I always appreciate a bride who brings her unique style to the big day. Those puffy detachable sleeves immediately caught my eye. The natural, effortless love between Rafa and Kane made capturing their elopement an honor and joy.
KIND WORDS FROM THE COUPLE
“Evynn was an amazing photographer! She really captured the style of photography that my wife and I wanted for our elopement. Being a native of Big Sur meant that she was a no-brainer and had all the insight to capture the most amazing photos. I would HIGHLY recommend her! We stayed at Glen Oaks in Big Sur and she immediately knew where to capture the photos for us. 10/10! PS She also recommended a few low-key spots for our postnuptial beer and food. Thank you Evynn for all of your help on our day!”
