For centuries the act of eloping was once a reckless romantic notion filled with rebellion and perils. It was also only for those madly and passionately in love who had a streak of defiance and adventure. However, today an elopement is an immensely romantic affair just for two.

In this vain, Monica and Brian Vargas celebrated their love at one of the most magnificently stunning locations in North America – The Inn at Newport Ranch. Set against the northern coast of Mendocino County in California, this celestial elopement captures the beautiful rolling coastline of the region and the couple’s infinite amour.

Photographer Sheryl Bale, not, only achieved amazing images, but, she was also able to capture the couple’s once-in-lifetime moment and, of course, their endless love and devotion. The spectacular elements of flawless flowers, scrumptious cake, and fine silk were aptly matched by the truly breathtaking vistas of the Mendocino County coastline. This is indeed no elopement of yesteryear. It’s a grand illustration of ardent love. SM
