Southern California has all the warm sandy beaches for your ceremony and trendy postnuptial drinks spots you could want…BUT that’s just the tippity top of the (desert) iceberg! You’ll also find: sand dunes, slot canyons, islands, and stargazing! SoCal has so much to offer the couples that want to venture off the beaten path and the couples simply want to venture to a quiet spot to catch the sunset.

You already have some of the pieces for your elopement: the love of your partner, the bravery to do something different for your wedding day, and the desire to create memories, not just photographs. The next step is picking a location. A great place to start is by simply imagining your wedding day. Is there an ocean breeze, the sounds of waterfalls, or the smell of juniper? Are you dusty from dancing in desert sands or are you wet from skipping rocks into the ocean waves? If any of these ring true for you then Southern California could be the perfect place for your elopement.

Here, let me show you a few spots!

It’s totally up to you whether or not you want to believe in the Irish folklore of sirens, fairies, and leprechauns—but the overall beauty of Ireland is 100% irrefutable. The sites, culture, people, and scenery are equally wonderful. The country is steeped in a proud history and the phenomenal landscape has inspired musicians, poets, and artists alike. Trust me when I say the rolling hills are even more green in person, the sounds of the waves below the Cliffs of Moher are louder than you can imagine, and being stuck on a country road due to rouge sheep blocking the way isn’t just some made-up movie scenario. It’s almost as if the rest of the world falls away and you’re transported to another, more tranquil place in time.

When A + B decided to elope to Wyoming, they knew it was going to be an unforgettable experience.

The couple along with their daughter arrived in Jackson Hole and were immediately taken by the picturesque winter wonderland. The snow had blanketed the area and the Grand Tetons were a breathtaking backdrop, which was B’s number one ask…snow capped mountains.

Waking up early to watch the sun rise from a desert landscape is one of the most magical experiences a couple can have. And when it comes to a romantic elopement among the stunningly unique Joshua Trees, you know it’s going to be a day to remember!

When D moved to Florida from Hawaii I gained a new friend and I am so glad that I did. T + D are down for anything including running around the beach as the last rays of light dip over the horizon and the sky turns colors of cotton candy.
