Why Santa Barbara is the Best City to Elope…


beach elopement in Carpinteria, California

Zailey and Brandon’s romantic Santa Barbara elopement was one for the books. Of all the cities in Southern California (yes, even Los Angeles!), Santa Barbara offers the most stunning views for an intimate ceremony. With its lush mountains, dreamy beaches, and perfect weather, Santa Barbara is one of my FAVES for any beachside elopement! Having spent my college years in this city, I know all the best spots to make your special day PERFECT.

Zailey and Brandon started their day at 8 am with a BUMPIN playlist and chocolate chip pancakes! After a perfect breakfast, they took a morning dip at Santa Clause Beach, YUM. Their ceremony was incredibly special. Instead of booking a wedding venue, Zailey and Brandon used Santa Barbara’s natural beauty as their backdrop. They held an intimate and romantic ceremony on the Carpinteria Bluffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Guests parked at the Carpinteria Bluff lot and we all made the 10-minute walk down to the oceanside cliffs to perform the ceremony. It was the perfect California beach elopement!
