Santa Barbara Wedding | Rob + Kelley

Friday, July 9, 2010

Rob and Kelley are some of my dearest friends. Both bright and energetic and active (both love to surf). Their families were good friends growing up and while Rob and Kelly were both going to school in Hawaii, they fell in love. They had a quick engagement and planned the wedding in a couple of months! The whole event was completely DIY, a real family and community event. Every one was so excited for these two love birds to tie the knot and were more than willing to lend a hand in the festivities:) They had a private religious ceremony in the morning and then in the afternoon their family put together an amazing garden party in downtown Santa Barbara. When I say DIY i mean from the ground up :) Kelley’s mom made her dress (!) and did all of the flower arrangements, corsages, boutonnieres, and bouquets and collected all the wicker furniture and . Kelley’s cousin did her hair just  25 mins before the event. Rob’s slim fit suit was a steal at H&M. The afternoon reception was in their church’s courtyard in downtown Santa Barbara. Her dad and his friends played some good ol fashion folk music while her sister joined in on the violin here and there. The bbq and food was made and served by friends. They had croquette and lawn bowling set up for everyone. In addition to a cake they also had a cake shaped pinata that Rob swung around for the kids (Kelley eventually letting loose on it too!). The whole event was very informal, which was very characteristic of the couple, and everyone had a genuine good time together. Afterwards we snuck away for a quick portrait session at the Santa Barbara Music Academy.
