For those of you that are planning a wedding and need some good inspiration, LOOK NO FURTHER! This bride and groom had it all thought out from the beginning to the end, from the bridesmaid dresses all the way to the corn hole game that was played to see who had to say their vows first. This wedding was one for the books!
Elle & Nate’s wedding was not only thought out and designed perfectly, but it was also so sentimental. Each of them wrote their own vows that were truly spoken from the heart. I was so blown away by what each of them had to say about one another. Not only did they have all of their guests in tears, but all of the vendors as well. Their sweet love was so heart warming and it shined throughout the entire day.
When I first met Nate and Elle I instantly fell in love with these two! They were the sweetest and most fun loving couple. During their engagement session in San Luis Obispo, I quickly realized that these two shared something so special and very rare. The two of them could not stop smiling all day and you could just tell how happy they were with one another. They shared so many of the same interests, were both goal and family oriented, and they each had such big hearts. After listening to all of the speeches that were made about Nate and Elle, it was clear that I was not the only one that thought so highly of them.
The ceremony took place at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History. The location was STUNNING! Their alter was under big, beautiful trees that made you feel like you were deep in the forest. Their reception took place at Chase Palm Park, directly across the street from the beach. Each location was so unique and filled with so much character. Their decor truly complimented their style and gave off a total beachy boho vibe. The entire wedding was designed by the bride herself who also owns the CUTEST floral company called Salt & Poppies. She designed all of her bridesmaids flower crowns as well soooooo definitely check them out on Instagram because they are SOOO talented!
It was an honor photographing these two and it was truly a day to remember!
