Bacara Resort wedding photography


I had so much fun running around the UCSB campus and the oh-so-dreamy Bacara Resort with these two love birds. And I cannot wait for their Santa Barbara wedding later this year, not only because I means I get to see their gorgeous faces again but also I get to work with the super fabulous Sophie with Amazing Day Events! Double bonus! After meeting them, I know their wedding day is not only going to be gorgeous but I’m pretty sure it is going to be all kinds of fun too.:)

I have reeeeally been looking forward to this wedding for quite some time now. Back when I shot Dani and Matt’s engagement session I realized there was something really special about these two. I remember heading home and going through the photographs, like I always do, but I wanted to melt because you could just see how much they loved each other. The emotion was almost jumping off of the screen. Imagine if it was that good then how great it would be on their wedding day?!? Yup, that’s exactly why I was so excited. From the moment I greeted them on the big day they were filled with excitement and it was so much fun to be around. Those kind of feelings are contagious and I’m pretty sure I had a smile on my face the whole day. Plus, give me a gorgeous venue like The Gardens at Peacock Farms and I am in heaven.

Dana Powers House and Barn wedding : Meghan and Nate


Every wedding seems to have a general theme or idea that runs through it. Whether it is a color, an inspiration, an idea or a place, couples can go so many different directions when it comes to the overall design and feel for their big day. With Meghan and Nate the overall theme was more than a design element. It was family. Both Meghan and Nate had the pleasure of having two amazing sets of parents that were relationship role models to say the least. But it doesn’t stop there. Meg and Nate have so many strong and loving couples within both of their families to look up to. They chose to celebrate and incorporate their families into all aspects of the day. From wedding programs with old wedding photos belonging to their grandparents, parents, aunts and uncles (all a surprise to their guests), a wine ceremony that included both sets of mothers, a tree ceremony that included both sets of fathers, and readings by their grandmothers, it was a day filled with celebration and love for the new couple as well as all of the past couples that are so important to them.
