You already know we're obsessed with elopements - especially when there's a level of style involved to stop us dead in our wedding-loving tracks. So allow me to introduce this Santa Barbara affair that did exactly that. As a morning news anchor, the bride wanted an intimate celebration out of the public eye, so they found the perfect venue plus the perfect vendors - looking at you Tenth & Grace, Shark Pig, and TEAM Hair + Makeup - and soaked up every second of their big day made for two.

From Tenth & Grace... When you live in the public eye, the thought of planning a huge wedding in front of hundreds of people can be pretty overwhelming. That's exactly why our bride - a popular morning news anchor - wanted her wedding to be small and very private. The couple decided on an intimate elopement at Belmond El Encanto in Santa Barbara with only their photographer, videographer, and officiant in attendance.

Belmond El Encanto is the perfect venue for a romantic elopement - it is private and secluded, tucked above in the hills of Santa Barbara with sweeping views down to the ocean. After getting ready in their suite, the bride and groom exchanged vows on the terrace. The couple took additional portraits at Butterfly Beach in Montecito before enjoying their private dinner back at the hotel. All the details that they planned came together perfectly, and - most importantly - their day was just about them!
