Natalia and John (and their family + friends) were full of life and full of love and it was a real treat to document their big day! We had never met before their wedding, as they currently live in London, but we had many phone calls and lots of email conversations, so we got to know each other quite well.
Sometimes it can be a bit hard to connect to your couple when you haven’t previously met but not the case with Natalia + John. They were immediately warm + friendly and totally smitten with each other. It was not hard to see how beautiful, fun and very sweet their relationship is. The day started at the gorgeous Santa Barbara Courthouse. We dove right into the first look and from that point on we had the best time. Their families and friends were so gracious and kind… obviously the apples don’t fall far from the trees. After we finished all of the bridal party photos, family photos and bride + groom photos, we headed over to Villa + Vine for the ceremony and reception.
Natalia + John, it was such a pleasure capturing your beautiful wedding and I wish you loads of success (and travel) in London! Cheers to many years of wedded bliss you two! Please let me know when you’re out here!
