The way that Gisela and Marques smile at one another is the most beautiful thing. After several years together, these high-school sweethearts were elated to be getting married in their hometown of Santa Barbara, California. The bride, groom and wedding parties prepared at the lovely Fess Parker Hilton with a ceremony at the Chase Palm Park Center. Their waterfront wedding celebration was filled with sunlight, joy, excitement, laughter, cute flower girls, dancing, mariachi music, sandy toes and beach beauty.
Paul and I were lucky enough to meet these two back in the Spring when we did their engagement portraits, and as soon as they saw the photos they booked us for their summer wedding on the ocean. We are so glad that they did! It is always such a special honor to document so much love and joy. If you were a guest at this wedding, the complete gallery shops may be accessed here…Enjoy!
