I had the honor of coordinating Jessica and James wedding at the Kathy Ireland Estate in Santa Barbara. To say I love these people would be an understatement - they are some of the most TALENTED wedding photographers in the industry! In fact, Jess was our wedding photographer (and has since been one of my main photography referrals). I loved being a part of their special day - their love for each other and complete JOY about their marriage was inspiring!
Since they are both wedding photographers, their wedding was produced by an all-star cast…their friends and colleagues! They wanted their wedding to encapsulate old-world elegance and flair. Jessica wore a vintage-inspired custom-designed wedding gown with long lace sleeves and a cathedral-lenth veil. James sported a charcoal suit from Men’s Warehouse, and the wedding party wore old-world inspired attire. Jess and James' first look was probably the most moving first look I have ever witnessed - the pictures give me goosebumps!
Guests were shuttled to the beautiful Kathy Ireland Estate, where they were greeted with Santa Barbara Wine and Craft Beer in a pre-ceremony cocktail hour. Guests were then seated for the ceremony underneath trees adorned with hanging crystal spheres. As classical guitar music played, the wedding party entered for a meaningful, heart-felt ceremony underneath the trees.
