Romantic Santa Barbara Elopement: Fatima + Arron

santa barbara elopement

Fatima + Arron are not only a gorgeous pair, they are an incredibly resourceful and creative couple who planned their romantic Santa Barbara “wedding tour” elopement in just six short weeks! There is just so much to love from this beautiful celebration. Fatima made her own bouquet, and she found her beautiful dress at a vintage shop, both of which look like they were absolutely made for her! And wait until you see their incredible beach reception table – a major fave! Here’s a bit more about the day from Fatima:

We kicked off our wedding tour by getting legally married at the Santa Barbara Court House with our wedding party. From there we drove a 1958 Porsche Speedster down the PCH to a reception at Sycamore Cove in Malibu where we popped champagne, danced and made s’mores with our closest friends. Considering that we planned all this in such a short time frame, we were so grateful that so many of our friends were able to travel to share this special night with us. It was a day we will never forget and we can’t wait to do it all over again with just our families!

Big thanks to Jana Williams Photography for sending this fun wedding our way + congrats and best wishes to Fatima + Arron!

It was important for me to find a dress that embodied my values. I’m starting an online pre-loved apparel style guide called Restylr that is based upon the idea of inspiring women to be creative, ethical and resourceful with their fashion choices.

After only a day of visiting the best thrift shops in Los Angeles, I found my dress at Shareen Vintage. It is very challenging to find a vintage dress that is flattering and modern, but fortunately that’s what tailors are for! We were able to alter the dress to be everything I ever wanted in my wedding dress – feminine, romantic and timeless!

What a fun idea to rent a vintage Porsche to drive to your reception in style!

I’ve come to learn that when it comes to your wedding the single most important thing is to stay true to who you are regardless of how traditional or unconventional that may be!
