Elopement: Mira & Pearce

We love it when couples do their wedding their way. From design and decor, to the ceremony itself. And so many couples these days are opting to elope; the ultimate, personal wedding; shunning the expectation to have that big, all out wedding. 

Mira and Pearce eloped in Jordan River (West Coast of Vancouver Island, Canada), and celebrated with a tiny group of loved ones. They embraced what they wanted for their special day and ran with it…quite literally, through a waterfall!

Submitted by their photograpehrs, Tulle & Tweed, Mira and Pearce are just the loveliest couple, with a great eye for style. We loved hearing their story, and are so pleased to feature their beautiful day on Wed in The Wild.

Mira & Pearce met on Tinder, but their story is different; definitely not they typical Tinder meet. In fact, Mira almost didn’t swipe right on Pearce’s heavily unpopulated profile. Having just joined the app, he hadn’t even fill out his profile, and for most, that is a huge red flag.

For Mira, it was scary, but what scared her more was how attractive she found him; perhaps to attractive for her, she thought. She didn’t swipe right. Her friend however, did it for her!

We are so thankful she did!

“These two are kindred spirits, and the way they chose to marry was their own in every sense of the matter. When they contacted me to see if I would want to be a part of their day, I knew we would be the perfect fit for this adventure elopement.” Tulle & Tweed

The couple chose to rent an idyllic cabin in the woods in Jordan River for their preparations and legal document signing. They spent the morning with Mira’s dad, brother and friend.

“When we arrived, they were so excited to get things moving. This was despite a torrential downpour, which Pearce referred to as “the perfect day” for their wedding. They embraced their November wedding date wholeheartedly, and were open to whatever the weather gods had in store for us.” Tulle & Tweed

With umbrellas in tow, they departed for the hike to the chosen location; but none of them remembered how to get to Mystic Beach; it’s location elusive. Without service on their phones, they drove around for a bit trying to find it, with no luck. Just when they thought their luck was out, they came across the entrance to the trail in an unmarked parking lot.

“We parked, popped some bubbly in their converted VW van and enjoyed cake from the always delicious Ruth & Dean. Once we were hydrated and full of sugar, we started off on our adventure. Hiking through dense old growth forest through hills, mud and ravines, we came to the entrance to this glorious beach after about 45 minutes of hiking . The view was spectacular and Mira and Pearce couldn’t help but run across the beach in excitement.” Tulle & Tweed

With seals popping their heads in and out of the water, Mira & Pearce settled on the perfect location for their vow exchange. Tulle & Tweed offered the couple privacy and distance, capturing their nuptials from afar amid the stunning, natural backdrop.

“To my surprise, once we finished, they darted across the beach then looped back and jumped straight through the waterfall and into their futures together.” Tulle & Tweed

What an awesome narrative to the imagery!

“Sopping wet, we took some more photos on the beach before realizing the time. With an hour hike back up the hill, we said goodbye to the sunset before us and headed off through the forest – Mira in her white dress and the three of us singing to the tune of The Skye Boat Song (aka The Outlander theme song) as we tried to beat the fading light.” Tulle & Tweed

I think we can all agree…what a perfect ending to the perfect day.
