Rain is not a common sight in Southern California, so it can be a bit of a surprising bummer on your wedding day.
However, I personally think the rain adds a romantic touch and heavenly lighting to images. The entire sky emits soft, diffused light. Colors become rich, no harsh shadows.
The bride and groom got ready together at the most beautifully quaint cottage at San Ysidro Ranch. That place is a magic storybook land. Then we headed to the intimate ceremony, which took place on the inside balcony of the Santa Barbara courthouse with only immediate family members present. By then the skies had cleared, and we took some pictures outside under the trees with a special guest (the pup). Back to the cottage for cheese and crackers and a fire to warm the room.
Congratulations, Stephanie and Joey!
