Michelle + Chris | Riviera Mansion Wedding

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!
