Montecito Presbyterian Church Wedding ~ Villa Sevillano Reception

It can be a real challenge planning your wedding from across the country. Luckily for Melissa, Jon and I, they  chose LaFete Weddings to plan and design their wedding. LaFete clearly understood their tastes and style, and knew we would be a great match for their wedding photography.

Coming from Chicago, they had limited availability to meet in person so they booked me online. My first meeting with them was a casual photo session for the guest book they wanted to make.  Colette knows her clients. Melissa, Jon and I had instant rapport. We started the session at the Courthouse and moved to the Santa Barbara Historic Museum and than finished up at sunset on the beach.

Fast forward to their wedding day on October 13th. A meaningful and traditional wedding at the Montecito Presbyterian Church. Followed by a beautifully detailed and scrumptious wedding reception at Villa Sevillano. It was an intimate and lovely evening. Several dinner courses paired with local Santa Barbara wines, with heartfelt speeches in between, made for a night to cherish.

The incredible florals were done by Camilla Svensson Burns. To see more detail highlights of this wedding click here.

Melissa’s email to me within minutes of viewing her wedding photos: “Melissa- I’ve just started looking at them (not even that far in yet) and I’m sitting in my office bawling and laughing at the same time and I think my makeup is running.  Thank you thank you thank you so much.

Guess that sums it up!
