I was honored to capture this elopement in one of my favorite little town Solvang. Now Solvang is probably one of the cutest little towns in the Santa Ynez Valley. Once you arrive your transformed into this quite, Dutch town with bakeries, shops and a couple of hotels. Solvang houses some of the best pancakes and danish goodies I have ever eaten. When Sheila and Josh reached out to me to have me capture their Elopement with their kids I was like hell yeah!!
They wanted to have the elopement at a winery unfortunately Rona played a huge part of that not happening. We were able to have a cute ceremony at their hotel Wine Valley Inn & Cottage. Shelia and Josh have been together for over 10 years, they’ve watched their children grow together, so while on vacation to celebrate their daughters Spring Break they decided it would be the perfect time to get married.
With all of their children together, Josh and Shelia tied the knot. It was so intimate and special to witness this family become one! Solvang is such a beautiful little town that makes for a perfect location for elopements. Every couple has their dream for their wedding day, I love capturing memories such as this for my couples.
Weddings don’t have to be in front of hundreds of people sometimes just your imitate family is the best. After their ceremony we went on a short walk through the beautiful city of Solvang for some wedding ice cream. Elopements are so much fun, this one didn’t have a cake instead they had some amazing ice cream!
