Chelsea + Brian { Santa Barbara El Encanto Resort Wedding }


Hello lovlies! Chelsea + Brian will always have a soft spot in my heart. Two years ago I photographed her sisters wedding in Palm Springs, and that day I was watching Chelsea + Brian from a distance (creepy I know). This isn’t completely normal for me, but something about these two just drew me in. It was the way they interacted so whole heartily, and made me feel like they were together for years, not just months. I just knew it was a matter of time, because the way they looked at each other not only made my heart melt, but everyone else’s ¬†as well.

A few days ago they tied the knot in Santa Barbara, and this time I wanted to do something special for them…and get a blog post out even before they came back from their honeymoon. When Jay and I had our wedding day a few weeks ago I learned quite a few things, and one of those things is seeing the photos quickly has SO much meaning. The day really does go by in a flash, and remembering all the little details let alone the people surrounding you with love is such a hard thing to hold on to. Well…I’m learning I have a horrible memory for those type of things, but I can’t be alone! ūüėČ

Chelsea + Brian had such a beautiful day filled with SO much love, and I feel oh so lucky to have been a part of it. The other vendors were a dream to work with, and it completely shows in how much they enjoyed their day.
