Bonnie + Al

Stunning sums it up.  Bonnie and Al did everything right. They stayed in the Villa at Sunstone Vineyard all weekend and had that quintessential California wine country as a backdrop in every moment. It could not have been more beautiful, more sincere or more FUN! Rincon Catering went ALL OUT and we couldn't help ourselves when it came to the oysters on the half shell. Seriously!! And wait until you see the cake cutting. We can't make this stuff up! Bonnie and Al, you surprised us and delighted us and we were absolutely honored to be a part of your wedding day team.

Phil + Michelle

Sometimes you show up to film a wedding and you have NO IDEA what you're getting into.  Well, Phil and Michelle dished out a whole lot of BEAUTIFUL and FUN.  The wedding team (see credits below) provided no shortage of "pretty".  The whole setting, from the Four Season's garden ceremony to Tenley Erin Young's endless supply of tea lights, took what could have been a typical gorgeous SB wedding to the top of the breath-taking scale.  The fun part came in once the dance floor opened up.  I mean these guests entertained!  We loved being immersed in this wedding day from start to finish!  Congrats Phil & Michelle!

lindsey + jeff

Carpinteria, California. Rincon. Bates Ranch House. A perfect setting. And it was an emotional union for these two and their families.  The tears and smiles (especially Jeff's) were absolutely contagious.  This was one event we didn't want to end!  Every detail was perfect.  Weddings like this make our job SO worth doing! Thank you Lindsey & Jeff!

Lizzie + Brent

We adore Lizzie and Brent.  They wanted SO badly to sneak a kiss before the ceremony and they LAUGHED a ton.  And they had our video booth at the wedding. Almost every single guest shared blessings, stories, songs and dance in their 19 minute video booth film!  That just goes to show how much love and support these two had surrounding them on their special day.  We had such a blast spending the day with them.  Thank you Lizzie and Brent!

Kate + James

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!

tyler & michael

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.

matt & crista

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!

Steph & Derek

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!
