Kristen and Sean have been a delight to work with since the very beginning. Their love is so sweet and kind, making for a beautiful wedding at the Santa Barbara Courthouse. The day was absolutely perfect from matching robes, to a sleek black trolley, to bocce ball after dinner! They wanted an intimate wedding and they created exactly that. The ceremony began in the Mural Room of the Courthouse. It was grand and elegant. Kristen gently wiped a tear from Sean’s eye, they kissed, and were swept away in hugs and celebration with family and friends. One of my favorite moments was hearing Kristen call to Sean and run up to embrace him to enjoy the moment together. Their deep excitement to be married made my job effortless. It is so enjoyable to photograph love and joy as it unfolds naturally and truly.
Their reception was equally as effortless. Guests gathered at a small restaurant, giving Kristen and Sean the perfect atmosphere to simply greet and mingle with their family and friends. Not big on dancing (as I heard Sean explain), the two laughed and cried into the evening just as they’d hoped to do. I loved that guests could play bocce ball after dinner! Everything was so casual, and so elegant. Just like Kristen and Sean. They have been so kind and willing in all matters and created a stunning wedding in such an intimate setting. I can only hope to shoot wedding like this with couples as such for the rest of my days.
