LOS ANGELES BACKYARD WEDDING | KYRA + GEORGE || WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA

Kyra and George were married in a backyard wedding at the bride's family home in West Hollywood. 

Every detail of this intimate wedding was dreamt up by the bride's mom and sister. They transformed the backyard into a dreamy ceremony space under the trees, complete with strings lights and vintage wooden chairs and benches for their guests. Kyra wore a non traditional wedding dress, and as her father walked her down the aisle, there were so many tears on the faces of their friends and family. This was the perfect example of a laid back and intimate wedding full of love and emotion.

CARLEE + BRIAN | RANCHO DOS PUEBLOS | SANTA BARBARA WEDDING

Carlee and Brian's rustic wedding ceremony took place under the oak trees and was followed by a barn reception at Rancho Dos Pueblos in Santa Barbara, California. 

This wedding was truly a labor of love for everyone involved. Carlee and Brian, along with their friends and family, were tasked with transforming an empty barn into their dream reception space, complete with stringing lights from the rafters, laying out tiles for a dance floor, and of course decorating the space with all kinds of DIY decor; including handmade paper rosettes, beer bottle vases and wood slices with their names burnt in.

Carlee took lots of inspiration from Pinterest when planning out her decor and wedding vision; even adding to her toast, "Eat your heart out Pinterest!" One of my favorite DIY details from this wedding was the wedding favors; paper succulents in tiny pots that Carlee and her mom made themselves. The succulents were laid out on a vintage ladder complete with a painted sign that said "Let love grow, please take a succulent." Other favorite details included Carlee's bridal shoes (yes to floral Ted Baker pumps), the beer growlers turned rose vases, and the bar trailer by Vintagique.

Carlee and Brian are such an adventurous couple and the perfect match for each other. I loved getting to know them beforehand on their Mammoth Lakes Engagement shoot, and they were so laid back and easy to work with on their wedding day. Clients like them are why I love what I do! Enjoy the photos from their rustic ranch wedding in Santa Barbara.

JENN + CHRIS | SUNKEN GARDENS WEDDING || SANTA BARBARA COURTHOUSE

Jenn and Chris were married in front of the Giant Bird of Paradise in the Sunken Gardens at the Santa Barbara County Courthouse.

This intimate, bilingual wedding ceremony was officiated by the bride's brother in law and decorated with rustic burlap, baby's breath and pink floral details.

After the ceremony we took some photos at the top of the courthouse tower before heading down to one of the most scenic beaches in Santa Barbara, Hendry's Beach, for a bride and groom portrait session. It was really busy because it was the 4th of July weekend, but we managed to make it look like Jenn and Chris had the beach to themselves. Adventurous brides like Jenn make me so happy, I love that she changed into a second dress so they could get in the water!

Their wedding reception was held at Le Café Stella, where they had such a sweet first dance. Congratulations Jenn and Chris!
