Akemi & Matthew’s weekend wedding celebration started off with a Moroccan inspired cocktail party, inspired by one of the courtyards at Finca Cortesin. The evening was set on a full moon, which was an important theme throughout the weekend and a powerful force for the couple. All of their 120 guests attended the welcome event and were serenaded by a flamenco guitarist and a enjoyed moroccan inspired meal.

So excited for Jena & Donny to tie the knot this weekend! Jena is the Director of Events at Greengate Ranch & Vineyard and her sister is the talented designer behind A Lovely Creative. There will definitely be some magic in store for us and I cannot wait!! We photographed their engagement session on her family’s property with incredible views of Edna Valley and San Luis Obispo, on one of the windiest days of the spring. Shooting in the wind is always a fun challenge, and I love how these turned out!

Inspiration for this Spanish Romance came primarily from this old world California Mission setting. Natural stone walls, brick & terra cotta toned accents all cast a mauve glow during sunset. We wanted to create something sultry and warm to match that summer glow. When we saw the bridal gown by Made with Love with its blush underlayer, the rest of the vision came into focus. Texture on texture would play a big part in the styling of each shot. And garden roses selected for their terra cotta hue pulled in the hints of brick to match the site.
soft romantic dusty rose and whites keep a wedding elegance, set against rich, sultry rouge tones and contrasting black centered blooms. Florals include: black eye anemone, dahlias, an assortment of heritage garden roses and delicate sweet pea

Chris & Jennifer’s Belmond El Encanto Wedding in Santa Barbara was such an incredible day. I love intimate weddings so much and their wedding was such an incredible celebration of their family and love story. They had dated in their early twenties and ended up parting ways, both starting families and getting married. Years later and both single once again, they reconnected and chose to join their families together with an intimate ceremony at the beautiful El Encanto on the riviera in Santa Barbara.
