Our Wedding Photos

The time is finally here!  I've been dying to post my wedding photos for you and I was waiting for the perfect time to share them.  Today is my husband's birthday so instead of tending to my blog I'll be spending time with him.  I hope you enjoy!

I'm sure you can't really tell from these pictures, but we got married at a courthouse in Santa Barbara, California.  This courthouse is actually a historic landmark near the beach and looks like a Spanish villa.  It wrapped around a whole block and in the middle of the building was an amazing garden.  We chose to get married outside in the garden and we were so happy that it was a perfect 70 degree day.  It was a simple civil ceremony performed by a judge and 25 of our closest friends and family.  It really was a perfect day for the both of us.  Like I always say, we aren't the most conventional couple so this "unconventional" wedding really personified who we are as a whole.

Here's a few shots of my family:

My siblings (and my sister to be Alayna)

My maid of honor and amazing sister.

My brother Mikey.

My youngest brother Andy.

I have so many more but I just couldn't share them all.  I'm so happy that I could share a little part of my special day.  It truly was everything I had ever wanted!

  36. Aw, thanks so much for sharing! I love that you had a small wedding, I never understand why some couples invite hundreds of people- it seems so impersonal. And of course, you could not look any more stunning here! The dress is gorgeous and looks so you!

  37. You look so beautiful. I love your wedding photos. It looks like your wedding was very special.

  49. I am glad I came across this! I don't know when I will be getting married but I have been debating whether or not to get married in a courthouse or have a wedding elsewhere. My boyfriend is all about unconventional and I kind of feel that way too but I am not sure. But this kind of solidifies what I think I want for my wedding. As you get older and reality sets in you find that weddings aren't really about all the crazy planning and crazy spending on things that aren't as important as the love shared between two people that would last for a lifetime. I am truly happy for you and you husband. I look forward to seeing pictures of your frist child together. Such a wonderful story. <3
