Champagne Toast Elopement

El Dorado Hills Elopement | Danielle & Matt

May 11, 2022


Danielle and Matt El Dorado Hills Elopement was nothing but breathless. From their initial consultation call, I knew their day was going to be romantic and intimate.

What I love most about this Elopement is that Danielle is Matt’s (my Matt) childhood friend. They went to the same Middle School and High School. They would walk home together since they lived nearby one another and was really good friends. When Danielle and Matt (my Matt) went off to College, Matt went to visit her at University of Hawaii! That’s when I first heard of Danielle. (:

We joke that now Danielle found a new Matt (her Husband) and now we both have Matt’s in our lives!

Planning this Elopement for Danielle and Matt was so much fun and I’m happy it came together perfectly. Both being an active couple enjoying the outdoors, it only made sense that they had an adventure elopement. The beautiful rolling hills in El Dorado Hills and the lush Lupine field along the Folsom Lake was everything and more.

It felt like an intimate and private location that fits these two perfectly.

Danielle and Matt were legally married in 2020 but didn’t have a proper ceremony or photos. She held onto her wedding dress for TWO years which made the First Look even more magical.

They came with Champagne and Wine to celebrate this special milestone in their life, complimentary from Matt’s (her Husband) job.

This Elopement and the celebration of their love was very personal, intimate and authentic to them. We’re so happy that we got to witness their love and to be a part of their day.
