There are so many beautiful places in Big Sur to elope. So here is a guide on how to narrow down the right spot for you as a couple. Rivers, forests, beaches, cliffs, mountaintops…I can think of 100 spots off the top of my head that have magical energy or secluded or romantic or easy […]

Truly a golden couple!
