What are two lovestruck wanderlusters to do during a pandemic? Tie the knot atop a beautiful ocean cliff, of course! and Sarah and Andrew have been together for so many years that they finally decided to take the leap – off the coast of southern Oregon.
I helped them select a location that’s a bit daring and even more beautiful. They were excited to see the place I had in mind for them along the cliffs of a deep cove. This area is part of one of Oregon’s Scenic Corridors. But it does take some exploring to find this secret spot of mine! It’s one of my favorite hidden gems with full views of the ocean. Once again, this spot did not disappoint.
As a fair warning, this secret and secluded location requires a relatively short but dangerous hike down some steep slopes. At one point, we had to use a rope to climb up and down! If you are afraid of heights this is definitely not an ideal location (unless you’re up for a challenge), but experience is more than worth it. The sunset looks surreal, just like a painting. Up there, you feel like you’re on top of the world as the waves crash into the cliffs. It truly is a once-in-a-lifetime kind of experience – one you’ll never forget.
I love this location because of the rich colors, especially at sunset. A warm golden glow illuminates the tones of auburn and slate on the cliffs, and the water is strikingly blue. If you want a romantic backdrop, this is it!
If you’d like to elope here, I recommend the following:
Oregon is a favorite spot for outdoor elopements because of the diverse landscapes. You can find oceans, forests, crystal-clear lakes, and mountain peaks all in one place. Other awesome Oregon elopement locations include:
