Real Wedding: An Elopement Captured by Holly Steen at Cakes + Kisses

I love this real wedding emailed over by Holly Steen at Cakes + Kisses Photography! The simplicity of this elopement is so incredibly lovely and the romantic field and pier shots are stunning. Enjoy!

From the bride: As a non-traditional couple who decided to move forward with an elopement instead of a wedding, we both had agreed that we needed to find the perfect photographer willing to “go with the flow”. Thank god we picked Holly! She gladly went to the courthouse, trekked off to the beach under a pier and then followed us and our siblings at a beautiful garden courtyard for cake and champagne toasts. But my favorite part is when we went to a Pier on Ventura Beach where my husband proposed to me a year and a half ago. I had told Holly the story of his proposal and why this place was so special to both of us. Under the pier where we relived the proposal and were giddy from excitement from just running off to get married, Holly's pictures captured the spirit of our wedding day and essence of the night when we decided that we were lifelong partners. We invited our siblings to our super secret wedding, and I will admit, we were a difficult bunch to shoot. We were having so much fun there were times that we were doubled over in laughter. Holly, instead of telling us to pose like a proper wedding party, jumped in and took the best pictures of us I have ever seen. Call Holly if you want a photographer who will capture the essence of what any wedding should be—about laughter + happiness + fun + family! I love you, Holly!
