Ideas for elopement ceremonies

With large celebrations on pause, what better way to celebrate than with your closest friends and family members at a beautiful private estate in Santa Ynez?

That’s precisely what Array Creative Design and Magnolia Event Design had in mind for this intimate celebration tucked away in the golden hills just north of Santa Barbara. Erika and Lindsey brought together ranch style and luxury elements to inspire ideas for elopement ceremonies.

With lush greens and warm floral tones, the ceremony space was inspired by a luxuriously modern yet minimalist experience, complete with velvet ottomans and benches (properly spaced to ensure social distancing!) surrounded by organic blooms and a free-flowing arch.

The dining experience kept the romance going with vellum menus, flowers in shades of peach and blush, and tons of texture. If you’re planning a micro wedding and looking for classic yet modern design inspiration, look no further!
