Santa Barbara Elopement Flourishes – Cheap and DIY!
If you’re eloping in Santa Barbara, its easy to add a few elements that will make the simple but special day even more so. Here are some suggestions that will help make your photos pop!
Grabbing some sweets and sharing that ‘first piece of cake’ moment not only makes the photos exciting, it adds an element of joy to the day. Some couples like adding a litte more of the grandiose in the form of a simple cake cupcake or donut! For cakes I recommend Anna’s Bakery! For about $30 they’ll give you a delicious whipped cream frosting cake already on the shelf. For donuts, Hook and Press just can’t be beat! And for cupcakes, Crushcakes is a local hit!
If you’ve though ahead you may have contacted a local florist to get a flower crown, boquet and boutonniere. There are many florists I know of that work on short notice, so you can email or call me for a current list of who I’m working with. Short of that, you can buy some poses from any of the 4 local Trader Joe’s and bind them together in an easy peasy bouquet.
If you haven’t thought about a wedding dress, I have some you can borrow! Putting on a white dress just makes the occasion grand and the photos pop!
The one thing I wouldn’t skimp on is the photography! No matter how simple or fancy your details are, I will render you and your partners special love in images you can treasure forever! Like diamonds, these images will become more precious over time! Call me, I’d love to chat about your upcoming elopement and anything I can do to help!
