Angela and Damon are one of the most fun and lively couples I have worked with thus far! Their sparkling personalities and radiant charm compliment each other so perfectly, it is easy to see how much they love and care for each other. Damon's unique sense of humor and attention to detail was matched perfectly with Angela's practicality and decisiveness. We instantly had a great connection and I knew right away this would be a fun wedding!
Our partnership began a year before their wedding. The majority of our communication was done through email with very few in person meetings. Their first meeting with me in Santa Barbara was to scout locations, pick the perfect venue and choose a date - all of which was accomplished over one short weekend visit!
Both Angela and Damon wanted to give their guests the "Santa Barbara Experience" by creating something unique, elegant and memorable. This destination wedding was an intimate affair with less than 60 guests, all of whom came from out of town to witness their special day.
Ultimately they decided on the beautiful Santa Barbara Zoo which had everything they wanted including the ocean view from the hilltop, lush gardens, and cool ocean breeze. They chose a Friday in July to say "I Do" which allowed their out of town guests to have an entire weekend to celebrate and enjoy everything Santa Barbara has to offer!
Thank you to all the vendors for making Angela and Damon's wedding so special!
