Santa Ynez Wedding - Dorian & Stefan

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

This last Sunday was the official kick off to my fun wedding season of 2010. I seriously could not have asked for a more amazing wedding to start off the with! The weather was absolutely perfect and the scenic background was so unique and unlike anything I had ever photographed before here in Santa Barbara. I always forget how beautiful it is in the Santa Ynez Valley and that it is only a short 25-30 minute drive from where I live in SB. I really need to get out there and shoot more often!

If you listen to country music and live in the area, you may know Stefan as "Carp". He is the early morning DJ on 105.9 Krazy Country. I am a huge country fan, so it's been fun listening to him in the mornings leading up to this big day!

Their ceremony took place at the beautiful Greek Orthodox Church and our original plan was to drive up the 154 to their reception and stop for photos along the way. Dorian had a super cool spot all picked out and we were going to hop a fence to a big open field with a few oak trees. Unfortunately, once we got there, we realized there was no way Dorian would be able to get over the barbed wire fence in her wedding dress. I definitely did not want to attempt it! I think it was for the best though because we ended up photographing the last bit of their photos at their new home they just moved into a month ago. It was so cute with a white fence and pretty arch at the end of their walkway. He even got to carry her across the threshold!

Their day was perfectly put together with help from all of these other fabulous vendors...
Coordinator: Kerry Lee Dickey of Santa Barbara Wine Country Weddings & Events
Flowers: Passion Flowers in Ventura
Cake: Montecito Confections
Reception: Hadsten House Inn & Spa in Solvang
Videographer: Frank of Shamrock Video
Rentals: Classic Party Rentals
I also had help from a great photographer friend Brion Hopkins who got some of the shots below. I love seeing the different perspective that Brion gets from the shots I set up. He used his cool tilt shift lens for this first shot of the Church. I may just have to get myself one of these lenses!

p.s. I had the hardest time narrowing down the images to share, so it is total photo overload below!!!

Dorian is absolutely breathtaking!!!

I LOVE Greek weddings!

Look at this sweet ride! Love it!

Dorian had the sexiest shoes! She never even complained about them once and ended up wearing them ALL night! You rock girl!

I love this shot!
