Santa Barbara Weddings at the Beach are The Best.
As a Santa Barbara wedding photographer, I have enjoyed capturing countless beautiful and unique Santa Barbara weddings. Amy and Juan’s non-traditional boho wedding stands out as a truly magical and unforgettable celebration. From the vibrant flowers in Amy’s hair to the arch built by Juan, every detail of the day was a reflection of their individuality. I will take you through this extraordinary wedding and the joyous moments I had the privilege to capture.
A Boho Beach Ceremony:
Amy, wearing a simple and sexy modern dress, walked down the aisle with vibrant flowers in her hair. Additionally, the bridesmaids, each in different colored dresses with flowers in their hair, added a touch of whimsy to the ceremony. The groom, Juan, and his groomsmen looked dapper in vest ties and button-up shirts. The ceremony took place at the edge of the beach, facing the breathtaking blue water. A driftwood arch covered in greenery and bright flowers served as the backdrop. A circle of rocks surrounded the couple, creating an intimate and natural setting.
A Meaningful and Non-Traditional Ceremony:
The couple incorporated a handfasting ritual, symbolizing their union, with their parents participating. In addition, they exchanged custom rings and wrote their own heartfelt vows, creating a deeply personal and emotional moment. As the officiant spoke, the couple joined hands with their guests in a circle, symbolizing the love and support surrounding them.
A Magical Photo Session:
Later, I captured intimate moments near the water, with the stunning blue backdrop enhancing the couple’s love and joy. Then, we took a path to the enchanting woods behind the reception, capturing the couple’s connection, in the beauty of nature. The resulting photos were a testament to the couple’s unique love story and the breathtaking surroundings.
A Reception Full of Personal Touches:
In addition, the reception was a true reflection of Amy and Juan’s personalities and cultural heritage. The celebration kicked off with a mariachi band, celebrating Juan’s heritage. The sweetheart table backdrop of 1000 paper cranes embraced Amy’s Japanese heritage. Plants adorned the beach reception tents, adding a touch of natural beauty. Also, a fire pit and s’mores station provided a cozy and delicious dessert option. The evening was filled with laughter, and dancing, with an excellent DJ keeping the energy high.
