Elam Family

Seven years ago Heather and Andrew met. With four girls between them, their lives certainly are busy and full of so much love. As a family, they love traveling to Costa Rica, so while Heather + Andrew started planning their most recent trip to Costa Rica they decided to make the trip extra special + surprise their girls by doing a family elopement! To say that Bailey, Taylor, Lila, and Shea were excited to witness their parents getting married would be an understatement! And the icing on their elopement cake was that the girls were going to officiate their parents’ ceremony!

The Elam’s couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful afternoon for their beach family elopement in Tamarindo. After a sweet ceremony led by the girls, Bailey, Taylor, Lila, and Shea were ready to play + get sandy! From dancing on the sand dunes, piggy back races, and watching one pretty Tamarindo sunset, it was such an honor to capture a special moment from the Elam’s!

Congrats y’all!
