The morning of Anne and Felipe’s Ellwood Bluffs elopement, the family didn’t know what was about to happen. Anne’s family gathered at a Santa Barbara airbnb together for a weekend. The engaged couple decided to SURPRISE everyone by inviting them to their wedding that same day! The family was shocked but overjoyed.
After everyone took in what had just happened, the bride and groom got ready and wrote their vows to each other. Meanwhile, the family eagerly jumped in to help bring everything together for the wedding that afternoon.
Felipe grew up in Brazil, and Anne lived in South America for a while. The couple wanted Felipe’s heritage to shine through their wedding day. They both wore unique wedding attire that reflected their connection to South America. In addition to their clothing, a colorful basket of flowers, rug, and wild sage were a part of the ceremony.
Anne and Felipe are free spirits and deep connectors. The ceremony was full of poetry readings, words of encouragement, and prayer. The couple also wasn’t afraid to take their shoes off, roam around the beautiful Ellwood Bluffs, and frolic on the beach. At the end of the evening, everyone smoked cigars and pipes together.
I hope you loved this Ellwood Bluffs Elopement!
