Intimate Big Sur Elopement | Desiree + Anthony

We love when couples decide to disregard the standard wedding traditions and just do exactly what they want to do! For Desiree and Anthony, this meant an elegant, intimate party for 11 in Big Sur, California.

The stunning, Spanish style Airbnb was the perfect setting for this special celebration! The white stucco walls, palms and surrounding vineyard hills all contributed to the overall feel, not to mention the most perfect backdrop for the couple’s first look!!

Our team spent a whole day scouting the perfect location for the couple’s ceremony. Wanting not too much sand, no forest, some type of lookout and definitely the water behind them - we had our work cut out for us! After hours of driving up and down the coast (which we didn’t mind!) we finally landed on the dream spot, rushed to the permits office and managed to get everything in time for our amazing couple!

Their ceremony, overlooking the Pacific ocean on a quintessential California day, was seriously what dreams are made of! Mignon Floral created a beautiful low, half circle floral installation, as to not obstruct the stunning view behind the couple!!

For their tablescape, we commissioned Kalen Rivers to create custom, hand lettered place cards on beautiful, yellow colored pieces of sea glass, as well as speciality dinner menus which rested on each plate. We scattered tiny cactuses in terra cotta pots down the table, which really extenuated the California vibe, while also tying in the terra cotta napkin color! Amber wine glasses and rose gold silverware from Chic Event Rentals were the final touch to complete this elegant elopement tablescape.
