Our $7K Rock N’ Roll Malibu Beach Elopement

COVID wasn't going to stop us from getting married

Jade, Musician (The Eiffels) + Natasha, Hairstylist
One sentence sum up of the wedding vibe: Our wedding was boho rock & roll by the sea
Planned Budget: $7K
Actual Budget: $6.7K
Number of Guests: 6
Location: Malibu, CA.
Photographer: The Hendrys

Where we allocated the most funds: We allocated the majority of our funds to the photographers and to our hotel, Palisociety.

Where we allocated the least funds: We were very fortunate to have our friends pay for dinner, so we spent nothing at the restaurant.

What was totally worth it: Hands down, our photographers! The Hendry’s were not only incredible to work with, but they delivered us a product that absolutely blew our minds.

What was totally not worth it: Natasha ordered 3 hats, and none of them arrived.. so for sure the hats.

A few things that helped us along the way: Our friends definitely played a huge part in making the entire day come together. We are so thankful for them, and to our photographers.

My best practical advice for my planning self: Take a deep breath, and don’t be afraid to ask for help

Favorite thing about the wedding: The entire day! Everything was so amazing, and we couldn’t have been happier with the turnout Anything else: Covid wasn’t going to stop us! After getting our original date cancelled by the venue, we decided we weren’t going to wait. We jumped into high gear and planned our entire elopement in 20 days. Also, MARRIAGE RULES!
