Santa Barbara Dos Pueblos Orchid Farm Elopement

This Santa Barbara Dos Pueblos Orchid Farm elopement was breathtaking!! I knewwww Stefanie and Bobby were my kinda people from her first email!! She found me through Instagram and said “I immediately stopped scrolling and haven’t been able to look at other photographers as soon as I saw one of your photos. They are stunning! I am amazed by the way you capture light, emotion and adventure – it translates into magical photos!” Best compliment ever???

These two were planning a non-traditional wedding focused on spending time with their family and friends at my favorite venue ever!!! The greenhouse is so beautifullllll, all the animals around the property are the cutest and the sunsets over this cliff are the dreamiest!!!! So needless to say I knew we could create magic together!!

Stefanie bought confetti poppers for getting ready photos (I’m obsessed, I live for confetti!!) and her bridesman accidentally popped his right on top of another bridesmaids head and left literally a thousand pieces of confetti in her hair LOL!!!! I love those moments that you would never want to happen but end up being the best & funniest memories!!

After getting ready with their closest friends and fam, these two shared the sweetest first look in the gorgeous greenhouse! Stefanie & Bobby were all smiles as they saw each other for the first time that day! We walked all through the greenhouse and captured some beautiful bride & groom portraits!

Their intimate wedding ceremony was a dream come true!! The triangular arbor had the best boho floral installation with pampas grass and eucalyptus and the light was so pretty!! I’ve honestly never seen a groom this excited to get to marry his girl, it was the cutest thing ever. The cutest moment of the day was after Stefanie read her vows, Bobby couldn’t even contain all of his love for her and was jumping with excitement and just grabbed her up in a big bear hug!!!! TEARS!!!!! After exchanging handwritten vows, these two shared a sweet first dance with Stefanie’s dad playing their wedding song on a ukulele!!

For portraits we soaked up every ounce of the yummiest sunset! It was so fun to see how Stefanie was more reserved and mellow but Bobby’s dance moves and straight up joy got Stefanie to laugh, let loose and just literally have the best time together! I just love these two and their love for each other!!
