I am completely obsessed with Michelle and Chris’ destination wedding. Living in the busy area of Los Angeles, they decided to travel up the coast to have an intimate wedding with their family and friends in Santa Barbara. Far off from what Michelle imaged as a little girl, she wore a royal blue wedding gown with her best gals in champagne sequin dresses- quite possibly the best combination I’ve ever seen! Although their wedding day was absolutely stunning, what made it most special was Michelle, Chris and Chris’ daughter Soledad, coming together as a family. I balled my eyes out as they invited Soledad into their ceremony, recited special vows and gifted her a locket with ALL her parents photos inside. In the 5 years I have been photographing weddings, that moment is my all time favorite. What an honor it was to be included in such a wonderful day!
