Bacara Santa Barbara Wedding: Shabnam & Robert by Andrea de Anda Photography

Shabnam and Robert have the most sweet love story, they meet on Valentines day, what a coincidence or fate ? I don't know, but they were meant to be together and with their family, friends and beautiful daughter they celebrated their union at Bacara Resort in Santa Barbara in a beautiful hot August day. 


This wedding is really special to me, Hannah & Casey are one of those couples who are just right for you, you know? We clicked since we met and I was super excited to document their engagement session and now their wedding. a very nautical wedding in Santa Barbara.


The ceremony took place at the "Lost at sea memorial" On the coast of Santa Barbara, California, at the end of the Marina's breakwater walkway. This memorial, dedicated in 2005, to all those lost at sea over the include those lost in the Marie shipwreck tragedy.  Two whale tail benches, one smiling bronze dolphins head, two bronze plaques (One with the inscription "IN MEMORY OF OUR LOVED ONES WHOSE LIVES AND DESTINIES HAVE BEEN CLAIMED BY THE SEA"

And after the Ceremony and the Portraits we got back to the canary hotel to celebrate their union
