 Natural History Museum Wedding in Santa Barbara

 
Cassie and Danielle Natural History Museum wedding took place on a day that was threatening to rain from the moment they arrived. We made it all the way through preparation and when the time came for Cassie to walk down the aisle, the thunder began to crack through the sky. There were a few brief moments when the lightest drops fell, but not enough to get anyone very wet. But the most magnificent and amazing thing about the ceremony was that during Cassie and Danielle’s vows, the thunder would crack the moment after each one of them had finished, AND after they both said, “I do”!! It was the most powerful, universal blessing I have ever witnessed.

Alice Keck Park Wedding in Santa Barbara

 

As a wedding photographer in Santa Barbara, I feel as though I’ve seen most of the venues where different parts of a wedding my take place from prep, to ceremony, to reception.  Nevertheless, all it takes is a couple that was born and raised in Santa Barbara to remind me that there is always something new to look forward to.   This Alice Keck Park Wedding started with Prep at Hotel Milo and ended at The Old Carriage Museum with a uniquely, old-time, vintage vibe.
