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!

B, C and I had an amazing time in the scenic desert of Palm Springs! It seems like a no brainer to take advantage of the stunning landscape and the complete quite the desert has to offer while in California. Not to mention the fact that the B + C looked amazing – B in his white shirt with dark slacks and C in her exquisite Rue De Seine dress, they were a vision! This unique combination of classic and modern elements created a beautiful space to capture their energy and love.
