Santa Barbara wedding photographer Sarah Ellefson captured this epic love story at sea in the most perfect way! Read on for inspiration on how to say "I Do" in the most romantic setting.
For this elopement editorial, San Luis Obispo wedding planner Embark Event Design and Santa Barbara wedding photographer Sarah Ellefson Photography were looking directly for elopement inspiration that would spark excitement for the modern couple who was considering an alternative celebration in Santa Barbara, California. (A popular wedding spot, pre-COVID!) The European style historic courthouse was the perfect backdrop for a ceremony and the courthouse is currently allowing marriage appointments for any couples looking for a beautiful backdrop.
In lieu of a reception celebration, which is currently prohibited in the area, they designed a beautiful sunset sail and artisanal picnic on the sea. The end result? A set of joyful, celebratory imagery that would spark the imagination of any couple in the postponement doldrums, especially those who were eyeing Santa Barbara as a destination wedding celebration already! Santa Barbara designer Santa Barbara Picnic Co styled a chic and cozy picnic on board for the couple, and Britt Ann Hosting brought the perfect snacks to celebrate with!
