Santa Barbara Wedding for Claire & Peter

Claire and Peter were married in the most wonderful Santa Barbara wedding. Their ceremony took place at El Presidio Chapel, followed by a reception at Carrillo Historic Ballroom. Most often when photographers feature weddings it’s easy to get hung up on details, and boy were there some amazing details. For example: Claire’s stunning GOLD dress and the beautiful colorful flowers! A favorite detail of mine was the tables numbered with grades, honoring how long these two have been in school, and also featuring a photo of each of them in each grade. They met at UCSB while getting advanced degrees so it was fitting and adorable. Oh, and the pedi-cab, the cake piñata, the bridesmaids’ “tattoos,” the custom brewed beer… we could go on and on. In fact, there were so many amazing moments, this blog post was very hard to narrow down. However, despite all those details the one thing that was most apparent about this wedding was that these two people are so very very loved. Everyone seemed so inspired by the way Claire and Peter love each other, and they were ready to celebrate it. There was a packed dance floor the entire night, and the joyful energy that surrounded everyone was so heartwarming…. and now, some of our favorite photos and video from the day:
