I had been told multiple times throughout the wedding planning process that I was a “hands-on” bride. Even having a wedding planner and a team of professionals to work with, I loved being a big part of every wedding detail and decision We wanted our wedding to feel like us – under the Santa Barbara sun where we met and fell in love and surrounded by our favorite people. After booking our dream venue at The Biltmore and starting to pick the vendors, I knew I wanted to keep with the Biltmore’s California cool vibe. We were drawn to simple clean lines and classic white with a contemporary twist. We wanted our family and friends to fall in love with our city and kept that in mind with the details, including using some of our favorite Santa Barbara landmarks for the table names.
One of our favorite moments from that day was right after the ceremony. My husband and I went for a little walk on the beach before joining our guests for cocktail hour. We were overwhelmed with happiness and wanted to enjoy a few quiet moments together before we joined the party. We were very grateful to have a gifted photographer, Aurelia, and videographers, Aaron and Winston from Sun & Sparrow, to capture those moments and emotions for us. They gave us the greatest gift of all allowing us to re-live that day over and over through pictures and video.
