So, as you can see, we are still posting some amazing wedding from our 2015 season. It was such a great year for amazing couples so, as always, you will see us gushing about how amazing everyone was/is. You might remember these two from their insanely awesome beach engagement session.  Jaclyn + Nick are a one of a kind couple for sure. They live in Chicago but came out to Santa Barbara for their stunning wedding since they have a connection with the gorgeous beach town. They are genuine, sweet, and so loving that you couldn’t help but have a good time when working with them. Check out their beautiful Santa Barbara Biltmore wedding below!

 Hayley and David are down to earth and totally fun. We had so much fun walking around LA and laughing with these two. David is a musician and has seen his fair share of weddings so we bonded over shared wedding vendor experiences and Hayley is rad all around. We can’t wait to see them again for their Fig House wedding in 2016!

We do not even know where to begin with talking about these two insanely fun and genuine people. From our first meeting we knew they were going to be amazing to work with. Mallauri is a fantastic dancer and actress and Curt is a wonderful broadway/stage actor (::cough::Wicked::cough::…right?!?!). These two are the bee’s knee’s and we cannot wait for their wedding next year. We know it’ll be beautiful but, even better, it’s going to be a complete and total blast! Enjoy this session and I dare you not to smile!
