Samantha and Jonathan envisioned an intimate and sacred elopement. They decided to elope to Santa Barbara, California, which was where Jonathan practiced as a professional chef while he attended university.
Burgundy Blue photographer, Ryan, shared that from their first meeting, he knew Samantha and Jonathan exuded genuine kindness and were extremely grateful as their vision began to come to life.
A stunning bouquet, floral crown, and other flower arrangements were provided by Ojai Blooms. Samantha shared that the floral crown was very intentional, in order to signify how her recently passed godfather would refer to her as a “flower child.” Otis & Pearl Vintage Rentals helped create a classic and bohemian inspired lounge and table for the two to enjoy during their post ceremony treats. Ojai Valley Brewery provided a beautiful growler gift to the couple. Chocolats du CaliBressan contributed a lovely selection of fine dark chocolates for pairing.
Reflecting back now, Samantha and Jonathan share they wouldn't change a thing about eloping, and they feel that every magical moment was beyond what they could have imagined.
