Santa Monica Beach Elopement – Rachel + Sam

Rachel and Sam came all the way from England to elope at the beach at Santa Monica Pier. The weather was overcast, but everyone was in such sunny spirits. They even had five friends from home come to celebrate their intimate wedding with them. As a special souvenir of getting married in a destination location, they collected some sand from the beach in a small bottle to take home with them. After the lovely ceremony, we explored the pier and we had a lot of fun. Here’s the evidence that they are pretty much the coolest, cutest, sweetest couple!

Congrats Rachel and Sam! See the rest of the of the photos or order prints here.
Special thanks to Jacob Marries for officiating and Kate Gilbert for florals!
