So.. wow… wedding season is definitely in full swing… I have been a blogging slacker FOR SURE. My excuse… although weak… every 2.5 weeks flying back and forth between my two incredibly beautiful homes Mackinac Island, MI and Santa Barbara, CA …
I’m currently back in my SB home (after returning at 3am the other day to 100 termites in my bathtub… ewwwwww… no need to fear I won the batttle.. so far… I hope)… but so not the homecoming present I was looking for.
Anyways… last month when I was back in SB I photographed two weddings in one day… it was AWESOME… each couple and each wedding was completely different yet gorgeous and beautiful in their own way…
Elizabeth & Martin had an incredibly intimate and touching ceremony one Saturday morning, taking place in their Santa Barbara backyard. I love watching as the joy and connection between Elizabeth & Martin was clear. You can tell it is their shared joy of life that bounds them together.
Then I headed to the Santa Barbara Courthouse for Nichelle & Joe’s wedding. I met up with this adorable couple in San Francisco a few months ago for lunch and we had such a great time. I loved that I had the chance to get to know Nichelle & Joe before the wedding… I couldn’t wait for July. They were so much fun.. and so beautiful with each other. Goofy, laughing… but the best word to describe them.. SWEET… they were so sweet on each other. PLUS… I got to ride in a peddy cab (for once instead of chasing the couple on my own bike I was “riding in luxury”).
Nichelle & Joe… I can’t wait to see you two again in SF.. .maybe one of these days I’ll be living up there myself! May the tenderness and sweetness you show with each other grow with every year!
May you all have an incredible weekend… and I promise I won’t disappear again… at least not for awhile..
