Linh & Mike's beautiful elopement day was brought together by the amazing Planner Wedding's By E, Celebrant Emily Hall, and Elopement photographers, Coast & Pines.

It was important for Linh & Mike to include their puppy Buster in their day, and well as pay tribute to Mike's Ukrainian heritage during their intimate elopement ceremony at Teddy's Lookout on the Great Ocean Road. With Mike being from the Ukraine, they wanted to incorporate the traditional Ukrainian wedding attire for their ceremony. They also stressed the importance of having a greenery backdrop, to represent the Ukrainian landscape. We found a beautiful lookout with a mountainous, greenery backdrop for their ceremony. Where they shared in heartfelt vows and Mike setup his phone on zoom for his family to watch back home. Even though they couldn't understand in English, the tears were flowing over the screen and it was very emotional for everyone. 

After their ceremony, they headed back to their AirBNb in Airely's Inlet, for an outfit change into their western wedding attire! They shared in a beautiful first look with the golden light shining through the trees of the backyard behind them. 

From here, we headed off for sunset at Point Addis Beach! We watched the sunset fall behind the horizon line, took some portraits and allowed them to have the space to just be and enjoy these special moments. 

It was a very intimate and special day for these two, bringing their two worlds together and forming their own new chapter as a family.
