When Livia first reached out to me and said her and Kyle were getting married at the Santa Barbara Courthouse, I had absolutely no idea what an amazing venue it was! Based out of San Diego, I had been to Santa Barbara several times but never to the courthouse. It's nothing like what you would expect from a courthouse! It appears more like a church or museum with it's high arches, spiral staircases, and ornate tile decorating throughout. Although, in a city where even 7-11's have a charming Spanish architecture, I should have known that this was going to be a gorgeous place. Their ceremony was in the Sunken Garden with the walls of the courthouse rising all around. I was fortunate enough to get almost two hours alone with the bride and groom between their first look and after the ceremony. We had plenty of time to roam the vast property, exploring brightly lit hallways, exotic gardens, and the clock tower. The feeling was magical. Their reception was at the Cabrillo Pavilion Arts Center, a beautiful spot right on the beach. With a temperature in the mid 70's, it was truly a perfect day. Livia had the details spot on, with adorable jenga pieces as a guest book to sign. Overall it was a fantastic day and such a fun wedding. Kyle and Livia were both so laid back and fun to work with! Plus, they're too cute for words!
