A Fairytale comes to life in this northern California elopement. If you want to see some of the most beautiful landscapes in the United States head north of San Francisco. Leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind you, but don’t forget to look in the rearview mirror as you cross the Golden Gate Bridge because that too is an incredible sight, and then turn your focus forward and be prepared for awe-inspiring views for the next hour of your life.

Tucked away in the Redwoods of Inverness, California is a giant elegant treehouse. FOUND HERE ON VRBO!! It accommodates 12 so feel free to bring along a few of your favorite people to celebrate your love. The kids could enjoy the unique octagonal shaped bedroom on the 4th level…or you two can have a fun morning waking up to the 360 degree views the floor to ceiling windows allow.

This couple started and ended their elopement at the treehouse. Vo Floral and Smittenkiss Weddings and Events transformed the property into a floral fairytale. The soft pastel tones perfectly complimented the warm woodwork brought into the space as well as the existing craftsmanship unique to the treehouse.

Then off to the coast they went to say their vows amongst views only comparable to the beautiful love they share.

Melissa’s gorgeous Claire Lafaye gown was made for the strong winds we were graced with. note: Be prepared for wind on the west coast…especially if you plan on rock climbing;)

Point Reyes National Seashore is a protected coastline in Marin County, northern California. It hosts beaches filled with massive waves, white sand and golden rugged cliffs.
