Surfsand Real Weddings


Vito & Rindi


Photographer: William H. Harlan

Vito and Rindi imagined a breezy, relaxed Fall wedding inspired by the pale hues of sand and the seafoam green of the sea. A progressive affair, the ceremony took place in the evergreen
gardens of the Haystack Gardens Retreat Center, right across from the Surfsand, followed by a celebratory toast on the garden veranda. Pictures followed on the sand in perfect
afternoon light, with stunning Haystack Rock as the backdrop. The fun continued well into the evening in the Surfsand Ballroom, with dancing and panoramic views of the coast. 

Anna & Michelle


Photographer: William James

Anna and Michelle dreamed of an intimate wedding with their children as attendants and their toes in the sand. Cannon Beach’s endless expanse allowed for a space all their own to share vows, laughter, and some quiet rituals to mark their union– like collecting shells and sand for a keepsake jar. Emerging through the seagrass donning laurel and ivory rose crowns, their two daughters and son couldn’t help but get caught up in the day’s magic. For photos, the couple chose the jaw-dropping views of Ecola State Park, just minutes from the Surfsand. 


Michael & Heather


Photographer: Sweetlife Photography

Heather and Michael pictured a “mini-elopement” filled with artful details and quiet moments, surrounded by a small gathering of their closest family and friends. Heather’s desired neutral palette of ivory, pearl pink and pale blue, set against the green-gray of Haystack Rock, made for a scene as timeless as the sea. Creative touches included keepsake s’mores and a piece of driftwood carved with their names. Following the ceremony, the wedding party enjoyed a private, sea-farm-to-table feast at the Wayfarer Restaurant, just adjacent to the Surfsand.
