Imagine this: bags packed, you jump into a helicopter with your love. You’re then whisked off to a clearing off the coast, prepared with luxe florals, a table for two, and even a cozy bed for stargazing. Just like that, you’re in another world—one created especially for you. Today’s boho Big Sur elopement inspiration is proof that if you can dream it, you can do it.
Photographer Carol Oliva Photography and florist Barefoot Floral brought the dream to life, combining their style + design inspiration for a day that’s a little bit glamping, a little bit dinner-with-a-view, and a LOT of romance. Ready for an escape?
Off you go…
Pretty paper goods by Heart Paper Soul mirrored the ceremony backdrop!
A Hop, Skip, Helicopter Ride Away
The couple jetted off from San Fransisco thanks to Specialized Helicopters — how fun is that?!
And just like that…here we are!
Boho Big Sur Elopement Florals
Barefoot Floral created two monochromatic floral arrangements and hung bunches of eucalyptus from the trees to frame the ceremony space.
Notice the altar art? Using a material we’ve all become too familiar with right now—hello, plexiglass—the team made it into something beautiful. Blue abstract lines represent the mountains + oceans that surround Big Sur.
Love how the bouquet mirrors the shape + color of the altar flowers!
A Bed With a View
Ooooh, now this is fun! A sweet little vintage bedframe all set for ultimate coziness as the stars come out to play.
Pour Girl poured the cocktails to celebrate!
An Epic Table for Two in Big Sur

And oh, those gorgeous flowers by Barefoot Floral just elevated the romance!
Glamping is for Lovers
And if the bed wasn’t enough, here’s one more dreamy space for the newlyweds!
Night Falls in Big Sur
The only thing that could make this elopement inspiration dreamier? A gradient sunset into a night full of stars—that’s what!
Perfection. Big Sur, you win.
