Elegant, joyous, and sophisticated. Those are some of the words you could use to describe this beautiful wedding.
Most of the time when a wedding is over I find myself breathing a sigh of relief, as I am (sure the couple does as well). Planning a wedding can be an enormous task. It's such a good feeling seeing all the details come together on the wedding day after months of hard work.
In the case of Melissa and Derek's wedding however, I find myself holding my breath, hoping and waiting for more. Melissa and Derek were one of the sweetest couples I have ever met, and every moment of planning their wedding was pure joy. The gorgeousness of it all was simply out of a storybook. A fairytale wedding. A prince charming sweeping his princess off her feet, quite literally!
The setting at the historic Santa Barbara Club was perfection with stunning pastel floral arrangements inspired by the bride herself, and brought to life by floral designer, Blooms by Melly, complemented the lush green landscape of the outdoor patio.
Photographer Jen Rodriguez captured all the beautiful details and through these images it's easy to see the love and emotion felt by all. It was truly a magical day and I felt so grateful to have witnessed this joyful moment in their lives as they became husband and wife.
