Ben & Emily are two of our closest friends. It was such a privilege to be a part of such an intimate gathering. Ben and Emily wanted the day to feel laid back, fun and classy. They absolutely nailed it! They kept it simple by inviting their closest family and friends to the Santa Barbara Courthouse for a lovely ceremony on the lawn, followed by a candle lit dinner at the Belmond El Encanto. With such a loose timeline we were lucky enough to plan some extra photo time in and shoot at some of the most gorgeous Santa Barbara locations. We made a quick stop at the beach on the way to dinner and just played around. The joy of their love and the happiness of the day is really apparent in their photos. Ben and Emily are two awesome people who are even better together. Take a look at a few highlights of their love. <3
Where do we even begin? Kelley and Dave's wedding day was a perfect way to start off the wedding season! It was filled with laughter, joy, dancing and champagne! The icing on the cake was that the bride is a dear friend to both of us! These two love birds just moved to Mammoth to start their lives together as a married couple but they really wanted to tie the knot in Santa Barbara to be near friends, family and of course the ocean. ;)
Kelley is a photographer herself so she made sure to make her wedding day very "photo friendly". She wanted the day to feel relaxed and fun and for there to be plenty of time for photos. One of our absolute favorite parts of the day was when the 4 of us drove to Shoreline Beach to hang out and take some portraits. It was such a beautiful and peaceful time to really capture the beauty of the day and most importantly Kelley & Dave's joy and excitement now that they are married. They even took a little extra time to relax just the two of them before joining everyone at the reception.
Here are some of our favorite images from this perfect day. Congratulations Kelley & Dave!
