Ellwood Bluffs Santa Barbara Elopement

This Santa Barbara Elopement on the Ellwood Bluffs was one of the most special days I’ve ever been apart of. Senia’s father passed away when she was a little girl so they decided to honor him by getting married on his birthday, April 19th. So special, right?? 😭💛 Wellll she also had a bouquet pin made with a photo of her dad and the phrase “Dad, walk with me today” on it AND she surprised Ali, her husband-to-be, with a pin that had his father’s photo on it. Those tiny but meaningful details are some of my favorite parts of wedding days!

Senia and Ali chose to elope because they wanted the day to be about them and their love for each other with no pressures from family or worrying about what anyone else thought. It was intimate, relaxed, and so beautiful. They had their first look in a magical little secluded part of the woods, an intimate ceremony overlooking the ocean, and then we hiked down to the beach for some sunset photos to end their perfect day.
