Felt Like Home

“Rae and Chase married during the late fall at one of the most beautiful places in the world, Burney Falls. Known as the eighth wonder of the world, Burney Falls is located in Northern California within a town that only has a population of around 4,000.

“Before settling on Burney Falls, we went through multiple different waterfall locations in areas like Oregon and Washington, but they ultimately decided to have their intimate elopement at a place that felt like home — Northern California.

“When we visited the falls for their ceremony, we were surprised to find that we were the only people there. They exchanged vows at the base of these beautiful falls and stated that it was “exactly what they wanted.” They never wanted a large wedding or even a small one, but instead a two-person elopement where the sole focus of the day was about them and their relationship. What’s better than that?”
