Intimate California Winter Wedding

Real Weddings

I’ve spent most of my life in warm climates–Singapore, Qatar, and Texas are not too big on winter! With that in mind, I definitely know the challenge of feeling festive and holiday-ready when it’s 75 degrees outside. I think that’s why I was so drawn to this gorgeous Santa Barbara wedding, photographed by Jessica Lewis Photography. There are palm trees outside, but the beautiful couple still created a cozy, wintery atmosphere at their 20-some-person wedding.

Thank you so much to Jessica Lewis for the honor of posting this lovely wedding!
