Claire and Brad met while attending Stanford University, which is where they opted to take their engagement photos (did you catch the post?) a few months before their elegant Montecito Country Club wedding celebration in May.
Their wedding day was expertly designed and coordinated by Vanessa Noel Events (favorite!) and drew inspiration from the subtle shades of the sea (even their ceremony overlooked the Pacific Ocean in the beach town of Montecito). Soft iterations of muted dusty blue showed up on the couple’s specialty linens from ModMix Studio, mismatched bridesmaid dresses, and the blue thistle accents in the beautiful white floral arrangements by Stella Bloom Designs. The groom and groomsmen donned sea foam bow ties and matching rich navy suits. A Fabulous Fete calligraphed guests’ names and table numbers on white shell escort cards; the display was dressed up with rustic lanterns from Stella Bloom, echoing the subtle nautical theme.
It was a tastefully-executed ocean-inspired affair with personal touches (the bride’s grandmother officiated the ceremony and the father of the bride shared a sweet slideshow of childhood memories). It was such an honor to be this couple’s Montecito wedding photographer.
Enjoy a few of my faves from Claire and Brad’s wedding!
And this last one is a favorite of mine: me and Elle gettin’ down on the dance floor with the bride and groom.
