Janey and Mark : Wedding

Photography

She smiled. As she opened the door of her suite at the Biltmore Four Seasons Santa Barbara, she smiled. When her hairstylist was finished pinning in the veil, she smiled. As her mother slowly zipped her dress, she smiled. And when Janey saw Mark for the first time on their wedding day, she smiled. A smile so deep, so rich, one could feel love electrify the sunny day.

Mark and Janey remained in each other’s arms the entire day, and though there were an abundance of tears, there was an over-abundance of smiles. And not just from Janey, but from their friends and family. The Santa Barbara breeze danced through the air and as happy couple pledged forever to each other, they smiled. Together. And will continue to do so until death do them part.

Janey and Mark…I have never been to a wedding with more tears and laughter…happiness and joy…tears and laughter. Your lives and love are a testament to all and I wish you only the best as you climb mountains together, play Scrabble, make PB&J in the mornings, snack on nuts at night, and laugh like no one’s watching. JD and I were honored to be your wedding photographers and appreciate sharing your intimate day with us! Much Love…J*

The ever fabulous Mar with TEAM Hair and Makeup was on hand to ensure Janey looked drop dead gorgeous…

Janey’s mom (love you, Dixie!) looks on as she prepares…

Totally FEROCHE…

Janey totally rocked her Vera Wang Wedding Dress and she truly looked amazing in it…

Mark and Janey opted for a First Look and see each other before the wedding ceremony…this couldn’t have been more perfect because we had a lot of time to shoot around the beautiful grounds of the Biltmore Santa Barbara, which provides some insane light!

Special thanks to Camille of Modern Day Design for the floral and wedding decor…

JD caught the next three images and while I told him his pictures were only better than mine because of his angle, I kinda know he totally blew me out of the water. If I didn’t like him so much, I’d fire him out of jealousy! 😉

Off to the beach for cocktail hour…

A gust of wind picked up Janey’s veil and tied it over her parasol…

Mark and Janey were so blessed by some of the most sincerest and beautiful speeches from their friends and family…

I’d be remiss if I didn’t give credit to Alex Hill–videographer extraordinaire–of Elysium for his totally killer video skills…he’s so awesome and I love working with him! And a special thanks to Kerry of Santa Barbara Wine Country Events for the coordination! 🙂
