Santa Barbara estate wedding photographer

When Katie and Ryan first saw the ocean views from private estate Villa Della Famiglia, it was an easy decision for them to host a Santa Barbara estate wedding. Their ceremony was held under a twisted tree on the bluff overlooking the Pacific, and their intimate celebration was punctuated by Ella and Louie‘s gorgeous florals and late-night Taco Bell as a surprise to Ryan from his new wife!

Katie chose a lace trumpet gown with a sweetheart neckline, and Ryan donned a sharp blue suit with matching tie. The couple decided against doing a “first look,” and Ryan was overwhelmed with emotion watching Katie descend the stairs to the ceremony.

We had quite the dream team with Amazing Days Events, Amari Productions, Feast &¬†Fest, and Jerry Rodriguez. The day overflowed with joy and genuine celebration, and we’ve got the photos (and video — check out the end of the post!) to prove it.
