Intimate Santa Barbara Elopement: Ben & Emily

Ben & Emily are two of our closest friends. It was such a privilege to be a part of such an intimate gathering. Ben and Emily wanted the day to feel laid back, fun and classy. They absolutely nailed it! They kept it simple by inviting their closest family and friends to the Santa Barbara Courthouse for a lovely ceremony on the lawn, followed by a candle lit dinner at the Belmond El Encanto. With such a loose timeline we were lucky enough to plan some extra photo time in and shoot at some of the most gorgeous Santa Barbara locations. We made a quick stop at the beach on the way to dinner and just played around. The joy of their love and the happiness of the day is really apparent in their photos. Ben and Emily are two awesome people who are even better together. Take a look at a few highlights of their love. <3
