What an honor, to photograph this special and gorgeous event hosted by the amazing Mar of TEAM Hair and Makeup, and to be in a roomful of such incredibly talented wedding industry vendors at Stella Mare’s.
The mid-morning occasion was filled with endless chatter, as so many of Santa Barbara’s premier wedding industry vendors shared stories over mimosas. It’s always humbling to be in a room full of such talent, dedication, and true entrepreneurs! A special thank you to Nina of Coco Rose Design for your gorgeous springtime table arrangements – look at how gorgeous they are! And to the very talented Karina Puente for your incredible backdrop and artfully created place cards.
Now, for some fun…
During brunch, we all got to listen to a little Q&A with World Renowned Wedding Photographer Jose Villa and equally accomplished Wedding Planner and Designer Laurie Arons. What a treat to get to hear both of these industry leaders speak about their experiences and share a bit of their knowledge with us.
One thing that stood out to me, as I looked around the room, was how incredibly lucky I feel to be able to work on a regular basis with such incredibly talented, warm hearted, and hard working individuals! Santa Barbara’s wedding industry rocks and I am so blessed and honored to be a part of it! For me it was also so fun to finally put a face to some names I’ve known for a long time. What an awesome day! Thank you Mar and Elan of Elan Event Rentals for bringing me in to photograph this memorable day! You two are adorable!
