Kara has been our friend for many years and we were happy to photograph her wedding to Dave. We are pretty fortunate to work with great clients and some become dear friends. Being able to photograph a friend’s wedding is really special. We could not be more happy for these two. Kara Twist and Dave are salt of the earth and true patriots, even taking a moment to say the Pledge of Allegiance at the beginning of the ceremony.
It was a cold and stormy day in Santa Ynez yet was filled with a lot of warmth and joy for Kara and Dave. The wedding celebration was at Kara’s family’s 113 year old historic home. The Jones House is located in the heart of downtown Santa Ynez. Kara grew up in that home which is also host to a lot of other special occasions. Every year there is a music festival bringing together the community and great musicians. Also, Kara’s older brother Alex was married at the Jones House. This family knows how to create beautiful traditions.
Of course, an awesome celebration at the Jones House is not complete without a parade down the main street in Santa Ynez. After the ceremony the party took to the street singing Beatles songs and waving sparklers in the air. Yet, another Jones House tradition that I am sure will not be the last.
