There are many beautiful places to Elope in Santa Barbara, Ca. and the surrounding areas. The iconic Santa Barbara Courthouse is a favorite for destination weddings, but for those who prefer nature to architecture for your vows, consider eloping in Ellwood! The Ellwood bluffs are for the couple who wants variety in their elopement photographs, from green forest to blue ocean to orange sunset skies, this area delivers for pretty backdrops!
For your elopement photos, we start on a walk into the canopy of eucalyptus groves and use the lush green backdrop to pose. Then we can walk on up to the bluffs overlooking the stunning Santa Barbara Coastline. Sunset is a great time to elope here, and take advantage of the stunning view!
Jenn and Travis made a smart stop at Hook and Press to grab some gourmet donuts that sure do make for a pretty picture! Officiating the ceremony was Father Jerry, a local favorite minister who performs beautiful ceremonies with just the right amount of reverence and levity for your special day.
