Romantic El Matador Beach Elopement

Been wanting to share this so lovely April elopement for ages now!

And here, on this sunny summer day it is here.

Leora and Dave had a destination wedding – just the two of them – in Malibu at El Matador Beach. They came all the way from Canada! They did everything right, starting with a mega cool AirBnb spread in Malibu Canyon with views stretching to the Pacific Ocean.

There were only four of us present at the ceremony. The beautiful bride and groom, Leslie the officiant, and of course myself as the photographer. I even signed their wedding papers as the official witness. So special.

The day ended with a cliff-top picnic complete with bottled beer, cake, and dancing.
