It was such an honor for Paul & me to document this special afternoon in the life of a family. Angie is from England, and she fell in love with James when he was stationed there. Throughout our time with this family last Friday we were able to photograph so much joy, excitement, and laughter. Little elopement style ceremonies are so, so sweet! The couple said “I do” in the beautiful mural room at the Santa Barbara Courthouse. I loved how their children participated every step of the way, and how during the ceremony they each affirmed their own commitments to the family and to the marriage.
After the wedding ceremony we created portraits around the Courthouse and in the bell tower. We saw five different weddings happening at the Courthouse while we were there so we tiptoed around some other ceremonies! We also went down to Leadbetter Beach so Angie could send home some images epitomizing sunny California. Even though its November its still warm and sunny here, and it was a perfect day for a wedding. We hope that these photographs will always bring warmth and loving memories to this sweet family. Here are a few of our favorites!
