Tim and Lisa | Santa Barbara Elopement

santabarbara_elopement_11

We have had the pleasure of working with Tim and Lisa for a few years, I met Lisa many years ago at a wedding that I photographed and then together we have been helping to create the brand for their awesome food truck Scratch. Currently they are working on a brick and mortar in The Collection, as well as a few other things up their sleeves.  Tim and Lisa are very kind and giving people who we feel are truly great pillars of our county and community. It is a relationship we here at Willhouse cherish.

When they asked us to photograph their wedding I was really excited and honored. I love elopements. Sure, big weddings with table decor and flower girls are gorgeous but there is something really special and romantic about two people standing together taking their vows with just their own eyes to witness this big life moment. Of course, there is always the call for another witness when saying I-do and it was awesome to act as photographer/witness.

It was really fun seeing them both dressed up and doing something special for each other. Typically, I see them in the food truck or at events and working their bones off. On this day, Lisa stunned in her Stone Cold Fox gown with make-up by 805 make-up, and white florals by Fleur De Rye. Tim looking handsome in his blue suit and cheerful grin.

We wish Tim and Lisa many years of happiness and well wishes. Also, we look forward to seeing what else you guys accomplish together!

Nick and Kelly | Belmond El Encanto Wedding

belmond_elencanto_wedding

Kelly and Nick were married on a delightful fall day at the Belmond El Encanto in Santa Barbara, California.

Last December we had the pleasure of meeting Kelly and Nick for dinner and drinks, we laughed, ate pizza and chatted about their wedding and engagement. We knew we liked them right away and were excited to photograph their engagement and wedding.

The wedding was coordinated by the lovely ladies at Swoon Ca, with florals made by the Mother of the bride. The wedding ceremony was around the koi pond, followed by cocktails on the deck of the Catalina room, then dancing, toasts, dining and plenty of merrymaking downstairs in the ballroom. It was a beautiful day and we are so happy to call these two friends.

We truly wish Kelly and Nick a lifetime of happiness and great adventure!

Jason + Kaci | Santa Barbara Wedding

santa barbara wedding 13

Jason and Kaci were married at the Santa Barbara Courthouse, which was quite fitting for two people that are involved and care for their town of Santa Barbara. In fact, Jason is a city councilmember. The SB Courthouse is a beautiful backdrop for weddings. The surrounding red tile roofs, mountains and the stunning architecture and murals of the historic building.

The reception was held at University Club another established, quintessential Santa Barbara location.

A big congrats to very lovely and kind people! Cheers to Kaci and Jason

Katie + Steven | Santa Barbara Wedding

7

What a sweet pair! We loved spending time with Katie and Steven. Their friends and family were pretty awesome too.

Katie and her family got ready at a private Victorian home in downtown Santa Barbara, then everyone was off to the ceremony, which took place at the Santa Barbara Courthouse on a very bright, sunny day, followed by an outdoor reception with beautiful vibrant flowers and Spanish details. Their families shared funny and very touching toasts about Steven and Katie that made Richard and I laugh as well as get a little misty eyed. Everyone danced and had some great dance moves, including the groom. In all it was a perfect day and we are so thrilled for Katie and Steven.

Congratulations to the newlyweds!

Laura and James | Santa Barbara Wedding

We had a joy photographing Laura and James’s wedding in Santa Barbara. Their wedding day was a perfect Santa Barbara fall day and the relaxed, casual atmosphere was enjoyed by all of their wedding guests.  The ceremony took place at the historical Mural Room at the Santa Barbara Courthouse and the reception was a venue along Cabrillo Boulevard at the beach. There was a lot of love and a lot of happy tears for these two creative and loving people. We were happy to share in the joy. Congratulations Laura and James!

Bryce and Chris | Apple Creek Ranch Wedding

sunet love3

We just adore Bryce and Chris!  Smiley, sweet and fun to be around and to sound like a cliche they are full of life and happiness! From the engagement session where Chris dropped Bryce in the ocean (on accident) to watching them cut the cake, they had us beaming and practically crying with joy.  From the bottom of our hearts we wish Bryce and Chris a long life of laughing and loving.
