Santa Barbara, or the American Riviera, inspired this fun beach elopement shoot. Our first stop in the ultimate elopement weekend? The beach of course!
A short dress, rosé champagne, and golden hour at one of Santa Barbara’s pristine beaches was the ultimate in destination wedding chic.
For the ceremony, the natural location was the Santa Barbara Courthouse with its Spanish architecture and lush gardens. Bare Root Floral created a bright bouquet of poppies, ranunculus, and garden roses and paired it with streaming blue ribbon. Afterward, the couple’s intimate dinner at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum featured more bright colors, including pink and amber goblets, and cut blood oranges. Finally a soft peach cake by Enjoy Cupcakes featuring one perfect poppy rounded out this sweet elopement. All was captured on film by photographer, Lacie Hansen.
