It's funny how life can surprise you sometimes. Twelve years ago, Ilanit and David met through a mutual friend. David reached out to Ilanit to inquire about commissioning a custom art piece, and as a fine art student, Ilanit was flattered and excited. Initially, she thought David was married with kids after seeing a photo of him with a child on Facebook, but it turned out to be a misunderstanding – the child was actually David's niece. Once the confusion was cleared up, Ilanit and David discovered that they had a lot in common and fell deeply in love.
The couple’s elopement on their 9th wedding anniversary was a celebration of love and natural beauty in the stunning Garrapata State Park. Against the backdrop of majestic rock formations, they exchanged vows in a ceremony that was both intimate and unforgettable. The picturesque scenery of the park provided a perfect setting for capturing their love and commitment to one another. The magic of their elopement serves as an inspiration for couples seeking a romantic adventure in one of California's most awe-inspiring natural wonders
