Elopement at The Ritz-Carlton Bacara, Santa Barbara

Laine and Daniel

It is exciting meeting couples who love to travel so much, isn’t it!? All the stories, adventures, all those charming moments in between. Laine and Daniel are one of those couples that I had the pleasure to meet, and somehow I feel like they are always in the “honeymooning vibe” because of their wandering hearts! But what I loved most about Laine is that she is one of those brides who stays true to her style no matter what, and that will become soon evident from this elopement at The Ritz-Carlton Bacara session.

I arrived at this beautiful destination and was completely in awe of the aesthetic beauty of this couple! Laine wore a gorgeous black vintage dress to reflect her passion for her style. She was so elegant and authentic, and Daniel perfectly complimented her with his sharp eloquence. Their styling and the gorgeous Spanish colonial architecture were a perfect match! So many beautiful photo opportunities for this elopement at The Ritz-Carlton Bacara. And you can already imagine how much I LOVED the props like her preserved flowers bouquet and the statement rings they both had, accenting their timeless elegance. The whole shoot was simply poetry of their two souls!

The weather served us perfectly so after their Santa Barbara elopement, we went to the beach. Before that, Laine changed into an ethereal white dress that was simply dreamy!

Due to the pandemic, they could not travel overseas so they decided to have a Mini-moon at Ventana Big Sur, Carmel-by-the-sea in Monterey County

It was my pleasure to capture this romantic elopement at The Ritz-Carlton Bacara and honored to have met such unique people!
