Andy & Kelsea’s stunning elopement was originally planned to be in Ireland, but they ended up having to make the difficult decision to keep it near home for the safety of friends and family during the pandemic. However, you’ll notice how the word “unfortunately” wasn’t used there. This intimate Santa Barbara elopement ended up being absolutely beautiful beyond words. Kelsea was very intentional with the look and feel she was going for the day, and for the photos of it! She had every element carefully thought out and planned, from the multiple dresses and locations, to the CUTEST heart shaped sunglasses. She was also open to our crazy ideas, like renting a classic car to show up in and use on the day. We started at The Bellagio Hotel where they were staying to get ready, then headed down to the Santa Barbara Courthouse for some stunning photos, and finally finished it off with an intimate ceremony on the sand at Butterfly Beach surrounded by their closest friends and family. Their ceremony even ended with a sunset that would take your breath away.
We will always LOVE how beautifully planned, executed, stress-free, intimate, and meaningful this day was.
No love story is one and the same. Yours will be finessed to share YOUR unique journey.
