Steven & Rachel // Romantic Garden wedding at the Santa Barbara Mission

how she did it

FROM THE BRIDE // Our wedding day was the best day of my life (aside from my daughter’s birth :))   We had SO much fun and enjoyed having all our friends and family in the same place.  We wish it didn’t go by so fast!  There is a lot of the day that seems like a blur which made us regret not doing a videographer in retrospect.   I had a lot of stress planning it along the way (with kids and a fulltime job) so to have it turn out as perfect as it did made me so happy and relieved!! I truly believe having all the right people and vendors in place is what made the day go smoothly and perfectly.

My favorite moments from the day are the ones I will cherish forever… One was seeing Stephen for the first time at our first look pictures and the other was looking into his eyes saying our vows.

 
Photography was especially important to me because I knew we could not afford a videographer. Our photos would be the only way we could save and revisit our wedding day so I knew I needed to make sure I picked a great photographer. I found Sun & Sparrow on the knot website and loved the all of their picture galleries. I had looked at many photography websites but this one spoke to me and I liked the style of the pictures.
 
Please list all the awesome vendors & fashion vendors, including jewelry shoes, men’s attire ect….. involved in your wedding so we can give them a nice shout-out! (with links to their websites if possible) I used Unveiled Makeup & Hair for me and my bridesmaid makeup. They did a GREAT job and we loved our makeup artist.
