Santa Barbara Courthouse Wedding in Spring

Spring Santa Barbara Courthouse Wedding

Planning an outdoor Spring wedding can be risky since weather is unpredictable. But that didn’t detour Leann and Matt from booking their Santa Barbara Courthouse wedding!  They had the luck of the Irish (…it looked like Ireland with the large grassy areas), and were blessed with high clouds and peeks of sun, for a perfect mid-day ceremony outside!

The Santa Barbara Courthouse is a lovely venue for a small wedding in late March. Friends and family set up white folding chairs, brought in a few furniture pieces + their own wood trellis + wood stumps to define the isle, and adorned it all with fresh flowers!  After the ceremony, there were endless opportunities for gorgeous wedding portraits around the diverse foliage and six sides of the Courthouse building.

Here’s a link to info on the Santa Barbara Courthouse Wedding, and some info on Weddings in Santa Barbara.

I would definitely recommend a Santa Barbara Courthouse Wedding!  I’ll be photographing an indoor elopement in June there, so check back and see what that’s like!  And don’t hesitate to send me a message or email me with any questions, I was recently a bride myself and know what it’s like to be in your shoes!

Intimate Wedding in the Quaint, Small Town of Cambria

Santa Rosa Catholic Chapel is a darling venue on the Central Coast of California.  It’s a historic building in the town of Cambria and is so full of character and beauty.  This wedding had no attendees, so I got to be Diane and Darrell’s witness!  We then walked around The Fog’s End Bed and Breakfast where they stayed for some lovely portraits. I loved being their witness and photographer! Such a nice perk of being a photographer is getting to meet so many different people, and attend endless styles of weddings and ceremonies.  Such a lovely day and wonderful intimate wedding!

An Intimate Chapel Wedding in small towns are simply delightful. Not only because you can really hear the officiants words of love, acceptance, guidance, support etc, and it feels endearing.  But also because I think small towns embody a special warmth that carries into the sweetness of the day.  I catch myself smiling the entire time I’m photographing the event… and I love it.

Intimate weddings are perfect for couples who choose to spend their wedding day entirely focused on each other. It’s a sweet, loving, and beautiful ceremony to share exclusively with a limited amount of guests or each other.
