Graceful Big Sur Elopement

Giorgia and Giovanni traveled from Italy to elope in Big Sur, CA at Post Ranch Inn. Elopements are some of our favorite types of weddings to feature on Once Wed. We just adore the natural scenery, gorgeous Jenny Packham dress and beautiful photography of this wedding. Are you looking for inspiration to make your wedding elopement special? Be sure to browse through our real weddings gallery to find more images of elopements.

Summer Wedding Bouquet

Summer Wedding Colors Bouquet

This bouquet says “garden” and “summer wedding” faster than you could pronounce the words. Full yellow and peach garden roses and matching ranunculus and celosia mingle with scented geranium, mint, jasmine, and buds from the butterfly bush. And what do you think about the crescent shape? It the perfect mix of summer wedding colors in my opinion.
