J & D had a beautiful and intimate wedding last week at the El Encanto Resort in Santa Barbara. El Encanto is a historic and breathtaking property nestled in the hills above the city. It is the perfect place for nature lovers to get married as you are surrounded by hills, trees and an amazing ocean view! So it was truly the perfect place for J & D to get married as they love California and our beautiful coastline.
J & D traveled half way across the country so they could be married here in Santa Barbara and it was such an honor to document their beautiful day. These two have been together for quite a long time, and so it was truly moving to witness them being able to finally make their love and commitment to each other official. They were surrounded by their family and closest friends who cheered them on with so much love and joy. After their ceremony, they had a beautiful intimate dinner on the Ocean Terrace. Great conversation, yummy food, heartfelt toasts, and lots of laughs were had by all. It was such a happy night. I was grinning so big from ear to ear photographing it. Because weddings like this? Weddings where it’s all about love, family, friends, and just celebrating the gifts of life? That is really what it is all about.
Huge thanks to Percy Sales for his amazing job planning this wedding! Fun fact– this wedding was planned in less than 25 days, which makes Percy a rock star! Also, shout out to Keith J Laverty for the beautiful floral design for this intimate celebration! And of course, thanks to Kelsey for 2nd shooting!
