Yet again…Lisa Vorce of Oh How Charming!, Aaron Delesie and the florist behind the event, Mindy Rice, have completely blown me away. This elopement is just about the prettiest thing that we’ve ever seen…and I say “we” because I made my husband come over and look at it for inspiration (renewal of vows, hint, hint). Thank you so very much to all three of you for inspiring us to no end!

More from Lisa…

Their ceremony was held in the Hacienda’s chapel which has the most amazing view of the city, the cathedral, and the ocean. It is extraordinary. Our dear Mindy Rice did THE most fabulous petal treatment in the chapel and stunning altar arrangements. For dinner — we scoped out a private corner and created a fabric draped entrance to a gorgeous table for two! Muy caliente! Tabella created a ruffled table linen with coordinating ruffled napkins and chair cushions. For dessert — we surprised Kara and Ray with a gorgeous dessert display and two wedding cakes!

The elopement was beyond romantic and Kara and Ray were such troopers. They had no idea what we were planning, and they enjoyed every second of it. I always love the way Aaron captures our events – but this one in particular made my heart melt. So, so gorgeous!
