An Elopement Wedding : Santa Barbara Courthouse : Sonia & Sandy

It was a Thursday morning and I got a call from Sonia asking me to be their photographer, they were planning to elope and get married at the beautiful Santa Barbara Courthouse the next morning, After listening to the love story I immediately said yes. That day was the  47th earth day celebration in California, so Sandy decided to wear a beautiful airy cotton dress and a gorgeous flower head piece to tie the knot.

Sonia was so happy to tie the knot with the love of her life at this beautiful location, but she was definitely thinking about their honeymoon glamcamping at "El Capital" state beach. 

Our second location was the Santa Barbara Botanical Gardens, the light was beautiful and we took a nice long hike trough the gardens stoping in a few places here and there to snap some pictures and document their wedding day.

this Santa Barbara Courthouse wedding took place in the "Mural Room". If you don't know the place, let me tell you, its impressive, the huge room is covered in a mural depicting the Chumash Indians in brilliant colors and native designs, it is the perfect place to say I DO. Jemma looked gorgeous in a strapless dress, beautiful long veil (and we've got to play with it in the Photo session) and the hair was the final touch to a perfect bridal look. through out the hole day, Jemma didn't stop smiling, she knew this was her day and she was ready to tie the knot with the love of her life in front of her family and closest friends.
