Julie and Nick : Wedding

Photography

He loves her. He loves her with every ounce of his big heart.

Nick has always taken care of Julie in such a tender and caring way that it was no surprise when—after seven years into their relationship—he asked for her hand in marriage. So it was fitting for the two of them to host nothing but a tender and caring wedding with no detail overlooked.

Over two hundred guests traveled to Santa Barbara for their ceremony and the Doubletree Resort served as a gorgeous backdrop. With her rotunda suite overlooking the grand reception plaza, Julie stepped onto the terracotta tiles and into the sun. As the band set up below, she shielded her eyes from the bright sunlight with one hand and waved to her grandfather with the other. Much like a princess in a tower, Julie looked down hoping to get a sneak peek of Nick, but before she could, Julie’s bridesmaids beckoned her to don her gown and prepare for her beachside ceremony.

I’m so calm right now…I mean, I have no reason to be nervous because I know. I know there’s no one else but him. And with that, she and a group of girls crossed a busy Santa Barbara street and onto the beach where Julie blossomed into a Mrs. and shall continue to love Nick tenderly for as long as they both shall live.

Nick and Julie, THANK YOU for everything. You treated us like royalty and always thought about our needs before your own—it was definitely appreciated and did not go unnoticed! We enjoyed your wedding and spending the day with you both and we can’t wait to do it again! Much Love…

Nick found Julie’s canary diamond wedding ring while vacationing together over a year ago. Not expecting to propose to Julie on the trip, he surprised even himself when he bought the ring spur of the moment and popped the question…the whole story is quite romantic! 🙂

Shoes and a little bling…two of my favorite things! 😉

I absolutely loved Julie’s Romona Keveza wedding dress…here her mother is holding up just before Julie steps down into it.

JD caught this shot just as Julie was about to be given away…I think he caught the moment just perfectly…

Julie is a beautiful girl (inside and out!), but she looked positively stunning on her wedding day!

Nick was adamant about ordering Tiffany&Co inspired wedding cakes and he found them at Montecito Confections! Not only were the cakes beautiful, they were sooo good…or so I heard 😉
