Cannon Beach Galaxy Elopement Inspiration

Cannon Beach Galaxy Elopement| Cedar Lane Weddings

If you follow me on social media, you know that right around the time I made my big name change I was traveling through Washington and the Pacific North West with some friends! I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to photograph every single bucket-list and Instagram-worthy location I came across.
Including this Cannon Beach Galaxy Elopement Inspiration shoot!

Lexx & Nick meet us at Cannon Beach, right along the Seaside stretch of coast for their out of this world sunset PNW elopement inspiration. Gorgeous spring flowers, a hand painted skirt, dip-dyed ribbons and the most amazing blue & gold cake…  All the tones of blues and gold collide in a vortex with this star-studded Galaxy themed elopement.

There is always something to magical, moody and soothing about the sea air for me, coming from the Rocky Mountains, it is a dream come true! I hardly ever get to shoot oceanside, unless I am tagging along for an intimate destination wedding, so it is always a complete joy when I do!

Take a peek through some of my favourites from this PNW Elopement here:

I loved every detail from this styled Cannon Beach Galaxy Elopement!!
