santa barbara’s old world charm: angela + brian’s el presidio wedding

2015-06-15_0164

Hospitality as lush as the surrounding hills that Spain once claimed. Vibrant florals and sun-baked adobe. Santa Barbara’s old-world charm provided the elegant backdrop for  Angela and Brian’s El Presidio wedding. The event had loved ones progressing through the archways and elegant architecture of two of Santa Barbara’s most iconic grounds and finally to the terraced grounds of the groom’s parents.

Angela + Brian began the day at the city’s Courthouse, where they had a hushed moment pre-ceremony— a quick connection that the rest of the day rarely provides.

We had the good fortune of gaining access to the famous Mural Room just moments after it re-opened in the wake of six months of facade restoration.

From the Courthouse, we walked a few blocks to El Presidio, where the couple’s traditional Catholic ceremony—and the traditional canon-fire salute was performed by a local minister and historical reenactment (and ballistics!) specialists. Studded with gorgeous peonies, meticulously restored, centuries-old paintings, and the natural light, the ceremony offered the guests who had flown in.

A gorgeous backyard reception, with city views and local fare, capped the celebration and gave attendees the best excuse to linger, dance, and enjoy the region’s famous wines until a surprise, late-night In-n-Out delivery arrived. 2015-06-15_0131
