Santa Barbara Summer Wedding: Karstyn and Jesse

Please enjoy this selection of photos that may serve as inspiration for your Santa Barbara wedding. Thank you, Karstyn and Jesse, for inviting me to be your wedding photographer. It’s an honor that I don’t take lightly.

Summertime and the winning is easy. While Santa Barbara was resting after the amazing Solstice Parade, Karstyn was getting ready at the Canary Hotel.

Isa did the make up and Lucy did the hair for the Karstyn, the bride, Meghan, bride’s maid and sister of the bride, and Karen, mother of the bride, while the girls ran around and got their hair done.

A limo was waiting downstairs to take the wedding party over to the Chapel at El Presidio, just a few blocks away on Canon Perdido Street. The ceremony started without delay (once the bride arrived).

After the sweet ceremony, Karstyn and Jesse were pronounced husband and wife. Then it was time for some fun and playful photos outside.

Check out the beautiful flower arrangement by Karen Fox on top of El Presidio Chapel’s doorway.

The limo took the bride and the groom to their Canary Hotel suite for a little rest, before bringing them to the Carr Winery, on Laguna Street, where the reception took place.

The beautiful cupcakes were made by a family member, while the cake was from Montecito Confections, and the food from Tamara’s Catering.

DynoMike, the DJ, played just the right songs. Karen Fox decorated the winery with flowers and candles.

The music by DynoMik DJ kept everybody dancing. Karen Fox decorated the winery with flowers and candles.

    I really enjoy the bride’s dress. It isn’t the normal long dress-but tailored and tee length. I think they had a beautiful ceremony as well-you did a really good job capturing all the special moments of the event! Everyone needs a photo of the brand new rings on the hands! I like that they held the wedding at a winery as well! Seems like it was a great time. I can’t wait to check out the Presidio for a possibly wedding location for myself. We’re considering SB for a wedding location-hopefully it works out, I love the city so much. We’re staying at the Sandman Inn ( Start saving money in anyway we can these days!
