The Sands // Santa Barbara Elopement

Sabrina and Will

Sabrina and Will met while living in San Francisco in 2015. On their first date, they went to a local bar and played skee-ball. It didn’t take long to figure out that they had a lot in common. They both grew up in North Carolina, graduated from UNC, and have a love for travel. Sabrina may have beat Will in skee-ball that night, but Will won her heart. Their second date was the next day. 

Will proposed during a Thanksgiving trip to Paris in 2018. On the balcony of their Montmartre hotel room overlooking a sparkling Eiffel Tower, Sabrina said yes.

They planned to get married in Paris on August 2, 2020, but then came a global pandemic. After postponing, and then having to cancel their wedding plans, on July 12, 2021, Sabrina and Will eloped at the Santa Barbara County Courthouse. They were joined by their adopted dog Fig. He was a good boy (for the most part). It was the least he could do for his pandemic parents. Sabrina and Will are now living happily ever after in Pasadena, CA.
