Jennifer and Jason fell in love with Santa Barbara very quickly when they first visited one summer long before getting engaged. Fast forward a bit and Jason has popped the question, Jennifer has said yes and the idea of a destination wedding was on the table. Santa Barbara was the natural choice…beautiful scenery, ocean breezes and, of course, wine country. When we got the call asking if we would be apart of their week in paradise, Emily and I were naturally humbled and flattered and yet we were both able to say, “absolutely!” faster than we have ever said anything…ever.
This trip was our second opportunity to photograph a wedding in the town I called home for nearly a decade. We knew this wedding would be exceedingly personal for us based on our relationship with Jennifer and Jason and the intimate nature of their small, simple and elegant ceremony. We love these two, were honored to be a part of their time in Santa Barbara and are fortunate to call them friends.
