Real Wedding: A Gypsy Elopement

I love a beautiful, intimate, elopement and this one is stunningly beautiful with photos by none other than Elizabeth Messina.

For the ceremony the bride, Erin (an amazing hair & makeup artist by trade), wore a stunning Claire Pettibone gown with oodles and oodles of pearls around her neck.

 How pretty is the back of this dress with all those pearls?

Before the ceremony, family photos of the couple with their adorable son were taken with a surrey and mini donkeys.

A hand painted gyspy caravan was the backdrop for their casual cocktail hour before dinner.

For dinner, fine china and silver created an elegant vibe for an intimate dinner for three.

A soft lavender and pink floral arrangement by Flowerwild kept with the elegant tone of the reception.

Afterward a dessert buffet with pretty baked good was setup inside the Villa. Thank you to Merryl & Elizabeth for sharing this amazing and intimate Santa Barbara elopement!
