Esther & Max // Santa Barbara, California // Santa Barbara Courthouse // Villa and Vine
This day was one for the books. This was my first wedding in Santa Barbara and I cannot wait to go back. I created this film a little more differently than my typical films because of how much was going on through out the day. We began at the villa in which Max and Esther were hanging out for the weekend, and it was a dream vacation place. After bride and groom prep we made our way over to the Santa Barbara Courthouse for a little portrait/bridal party session. Then onto the ceremony on Leadbetter beach overlooking the gorgeous water. Lastly, we found ourselves at the reception site in downtown Santa Barbara, Villa and Vine, which is a quaint and beautiful little venue right off of State Street.
Esther and Max are so incredibly down to earth and easy to work with. They live in Seattle but wanted to include the Southern California vibe as much as possible since Esther did a little stint in Los Angeles a few years back. You can tell family was such an important part of their wedding, and I particularly got choked up when Esther's brother spoke for their father. It was so touching. Love these two so much!!
