El Matador Beach Elopement in Malibu, California // Eva + Sam

El Matador Beach Elopement in Malibu, California // Malibu Elopement Photographer

When I arrived in sunny SoCal, I instantly knew that Eva and Sam’s elopement at El Matador Beach was going to be nothing short of intimate, special, and beautiful. If you ever been to Southern California (specifically the Malibu area) then you just know how immaculate the positive vibes are here!

I met Eva and Sam, with their officiant Liz, at El Matador Beach at sunset this last March. You could hear the sound of waves crashing into the rocks, watch the sun slowly going down over the horizon, and feel the sea breeze in your hair. This made for such a perfect day for Eva and Sam.

I also ADORE that Eva said to heck with the traditional wedding dress, and found this beautiful and simple pink dress for their elopement. When you choose to elope, there really are no rules! You can literally do whatever the heck you want.

Planning: Vows Well Traveled
