UCSB and Carriage Museum | Santa Barbara Wedding

Emily and Alex are one of the most fun loving couples I have worked with to date! I loved their energy and their willingness to be themselves in front of the camera. Emily and her bridesmaids got ready at the Hilton Santa Barbara Beachfront Resort and Emily was absolutely radiant with joy. Emily knew Alex was the one when he handcrafted welded gifts for her during their time in school. What a talented and thoughtful man! Their ceremony took place on the cliffs above the ocean at Santa Barbara City College, the place where they met.

After the ceremony, and some romantic portraits of the couple, we went over to the Santa Barbara Carriage Museum for the reception. There we were surprised with Emily and Alex’s getaway car, a 1962 Ford wagon, which matched perfectly with the venue! We had a lot of fun taking cute shots with the car and the background of the wild west town. I love the way Alex is able to just swoop Emily up in his arms! It was a very fun evening, with lots of dancing. One of my favorite details was their take home gift for the guests, succulents inside of bags with an illustration of the couple on the front.
