A Small Courthouse Wedding in Santa Barbara

 
A Small courthouse wedding in Santa Barbara is such a beautiful way to celebrate a couple’s union.  Joey and Tara had the most important people from each of their lives present with them on their wedding day, then spend the rest of the day taking photos with me before heading to to Hendry’s beach to catch the sunset and to meet up with their families for dinner and more celebration.  As the sun was setting, the blues got a little bluer as the wind picked up and Joey and Tara went to share their celebration with their families.

Bride + Groom: Tara & Joey

Venues: Santa Barbara Courthouse and Hendry’s Beach

Colorful courthouse elopement amidst Spanish architecture backdrops

 

There are so many different ways to photograph a couple at the Santa Barbara courthouse – so much variety and so many different locations to bring a couple along to.  For the this colorful courthouse elopement we were able to take full advantage of a Spanish tiled spiral stair case, the sunken gardens below the arch in the courtyard and one of the many, darkly lit hallways that run through the courthouse.  After a short and sweet ceremony among a small group of friends and family, these newly weds had an impromptu first dance right on the lawn.

A sweet, Summer Courthouse Elopement in Santa Barbara

Jessica and Enric are both high level academics who fell in love with each other, travel and Spain.  Their sweet, Summer courthouse elopement was small – only attended by family members and an officiant.  It’s always interesting to me how much you feel that you get to know a couple when you spend this kind of time with them.  It was only a couple of hours, but it was almost a little difficult to say, “goodbye.”  I’m no good at goodbyes!

Bride + Groom:  Jessica + Enric

Venue: Santa Barbara Courthouse
