Courthouse Elopement Inspiration Packed With Color

Styled elopements are one trend I hope never, ever leaves the wedding scene. It’s an opportunity to whisk away with the one you love, without sacrificing even an ounce of pretty found in a traditional wedding. *Enter* this inspiration shoot from A-list vendors like Bluebird Productions, Bare Root Flora, TEAM Hair and Makeup, Casa de Perrin, Little White Dress and more. See every Lacie Hansen capture waiting right this way.

From Bluebird ProductionsInspired by the colors of the American Riviera and the desire to have a perfectly intimate elopement that could then be shared, a fabulous group of vendors crafted the ideal elopement. The elopement consists of experiences at the Santa Barbara courthouse followed by a tour around town, dinner and cake in a romantic courtyard and a sunset toast on the beach. The stationery to document the day uses natural materials from an etched terra cotta menu to an “announcement” that includes rough wood, natural fibers and vows to make those that were not there feel included. Bright and cheerful flowers decorate the intentionally set table to compliment colors of the areas surroundings and add a bit of “pop” to punctuate the celebration.

A Gorgeous Wedding Planned Sight Unseen!

For Adwoa and Phillip, an intimate, elegant, fuss-free wedding was at the top of their priority list. With just three months to plan, they found a venue (the incredible Belmond El Encanto) online and let their vendors work their magic on the rest. The result? A wedding completely sight unseen that turned out pretty dang perfect. Gloria Mesa photographed and you can see it all inside The Vault.

From the Bride…We initially planned a small elopement (just the two of us) at the Santa Barbara courthouse followed by a destination wedding in Costa Rica. As the health concerns related to the Zika Virus came up with 3 months to go, we changed directions and opted for a small destination ceremony in Santa Barbara. 

We wanted something small and intimate that reflected us. Phil’s outdoor laid-back peaceful nature with accents of simple elegance (me!) We found the venue online and our parents went to view it. Everything else was done sight unseen!

Oak And The Owl lined the ceremony aisle with THREE THOUSAND tulips, not to mention the hanging tulip installation above the couple’s exchange of vows. Floral lovers, you can officially count this as your luckiest day.

From Luna de Mare PhotographyLaura and Nick were wed at the beautiful El Encanto with an oceanfront view, and an old-world classic elegance reminiscent of what one would imagine a garden party would be like with the Kennedy’s summering in the Hamptons. Three thousand white Tulips lined the rectangular lily pond leading ones eye to the arbor where the couple exchanged their vows under rows of upside down tulips, and the California sun bestowing its warm glow. They enjoyed cocktails al fresco until dusk and slowly made their way into the adjacent ballroom where glasses clinked with wine cheer, and culinary delights awaited.
