Kathryn and Dustin's Longshadow Ranch Winery Wedding

Kathryn and Dustin Temecula Longshadow Ranch Winery Wedding-15.jpg

Kathryn and Dustin’s wedding this past Sunday was my last wedding of the year and it was a stunner! It was moody and rustic, with touches of Christmas sprinkled in. All around perfection! This sweet couple was casual and cool all day long, and I think that translated into their pictures. They were ready to have a good time and we got to play!

I love this venue, from their stunning Barn reception hall, to the horses, and the vineyards that surround the space. It’s beautiful from end to end. The bride’s insanely talented sister created all the floral masterpieces that really set the mood for the whole event. I loved the simplicity and warmth of this wedding, and how much it was about the closeness of family.

It was a crazy busy weekend full of beautiful moments, and I hope I did those moments justice with some of these pictures. Congrats to Dustin and Kathryn, I know your life will be full of love!

Hugs

Santa Barbara Wedding at Belmond El Encanto

A and M's Belmond El Encanto Santa Barbara Wedding Great Woodland Photography -30.jpg

This weekend I had the pleasure and honor of photographing Aly and Max’s gorgeous Santa Barbara wedding. Their wedding was at the Belmond El Encanto, a Craftsman and Spanish style venue, and this stunner was the perfect back drop for their Christmas inspired wedding. It was a breezy beautiful day but mostly clear this Saturday, and Aly made a stunning bride. Max looked so amazing in his tails, and I loved when all the bridesmaids brought out a top hat (as a little joke) to finish off his formal look.

The details of this gorgeous couples day, are innumerable, and that’s probably why I had such a hard time narrowing down pictures for a sneak peak. Every corner, ever nook of this venue was stunning. And on top of that the bride added such personal and lovely details. I especially loved their sunset ceremony, complete with candles, a koi pond, and soft chiffon curtains. It may have been cold outside but this couple kept it red hot!

Family and friends came to support this sweet couple, from over 28 different countries. I especially loved all the Norwegian traditions from the Groom and his family. From climbing on top of their chairs or under the table to kiss, when requested with clinking glasses or stomping feet, these traditions added a whole new dimension to the day! They even had Norwegian candy bars at each place setting for their guests, and honestly I’m a sucker for candy, no matter what country it’s from :)

I loved every minute of their day, and I know their future together will be as beautiful as their wedding day was! Congratulations you two and I hope you LOVE this sneak peak!

Jessie and Mark's Mexican Inspired Fiesta Wedding in Cardiff by the Sea

Jessie and Mark's Cardiff by the Sea Lodge Encinitas Wedding-19.jpg

Yesterday’s Wedding Fiesta here in Cardiff was so unbelievably fun! Mark and Jessie, and their entire family partied it up right on the sand in my home town. These two are always down for an adventure, from their travel around the world to their wedding day. They were up for anything! After getting ready at the cozy cute Cardiff by the Sea Lodge, we were able to shoot their intimate first look on the rooftop of the inn, with 180 degree views of the ocean as their backdrop. Jessie stunned in her gorgeous lace dress, and Mark’s jaw literally dropped when he saw his gorgeous bride.

After we left the Inn, we cruised the 101 into Encinitas and got some amazing shots with the classic red VW van they rented for the day. We made a pit stop at Swami’s and made sure to grab a few more shots with the van before we headed to their Seaside ceremony site. It was a blast! I especially loved that once we got to the ceremony everyone kicked off their sandals and was barefoot the rest of the evening. And my favorite part of this party, was the theme. Margaritas on the beach, delicious tacos and colorful florals everywhere.

Congrats Mark and Jessie! I hope you love this sneak peak, and I had a blast capturing your day!
