Okay, so this was not your typical wedding. Kate + James are truly one-of-a-kind. The more weddings we film, the more it becomes apparent that it doesn't matter how pretty a wedding looks. It's love and community that make the biggest impact on the day. Kate + James' "tribe" as they called it were absolutely ecstatic for them and the joy in the air was palpable. We were honored to be included in their tribe that crazy, rainy weekend last October. This is one we'll never forget!
we knew the minute we met this fast-paced South Carolina couple we were in for a unique and exciting wedding. the details of their event were decided down to the custom made bow-ties they wore to the rehearsal dinner! but what really took our breath away was the reception setting on the lawn at Villa Verano by Alegria by Design. the hanging lanterns over what seemed like an endless dining table was absolutely magical once the sun went down. it was the perfect setting for tyler and michael, surrounded by those that love them most, amidst the backdrop of a perfect Santa Barbara sunset.
Simply put....she's his woman, and he's her man.
Matt & Crista's love story is so apparent. It's not often we witness such powerful love and they brought everybody to tears reading their vows. Everything about this event fit Matt & Crista to a T.....the Santa Barbara Historical museum's country feel, Crista's frills and cowgirl boots, their adoring family and friends.......we know these two will be singing country songs in that truck for a long, long time. Congratulations you two!
Every detail of Stephanie & Derek's romantic San Ysidro Ranch wedding was perfection. It was a beautiful Santa Barbara day, and these two lovebirds could not have been happier! They were positively aglow and even got a surprise wedding greeting from Martha Stewart herself! SYR is at once sophisticated and rustic and the color palette of navy blue and white paired with touches of bling made their event feel formal yet quaint. We wish these two a lifetime of love and happiness. May your tree seeds of love flourish for many, many generations to come!
We are thrilled and humbled to be awarded Weddingwire's 2015 Couples' Choice Award. What an amazing way to start off the new year!!

Hannah & Jesus were married at Roblar Winery. On a perfect spring day - breezy, warm, full of joy and love, and just the right setting for this perfectly matched couple! We fell in love with this beautiful place, and of course this over-the-moon-in-love couple!
Everything about Lyndsay & Jamie's wedding was pure romance! This intimate Sunstone wedding was overflowing with love and happiness from both sides of The Pond! What a beautiful couple, inside and out! It has truly been a pleasure to get to know these two, and we are so very happy for them!

There's nothing better then a beautiful autumn day! And Rachael & David's wedding was the perfect October day, complete with carved pumpkins, an old-fashioned bar and so much love and joy! Everyone wanted to toast this sweet couple, and their happiness and romance filled the air! We loved working with Jillian Marie Photography again - they are so much fun! Villa Verano was gorgeous decked out in all of fall's finest colors!
Villa Sevillano provided a spectacular backdrop for this gorgeous destination wedding! Juli & David and all their Chicago-area guests definitely know how to have fun! What a great celebration for a lovely couple! This group definitely had their dancing shoes on all night long! Every detail was just beautiful thanks to Donna Romani Events! And of course, we love to see Enjoy Cupcakes wherever we go!
We loved filming this sweet couple's intimate ceremony at the majestic Santa Barbara Courthouse. Their humor and love for each other made this such a wonderful afternoon.
