Santa Barbara Courthouse Wedding | Stephanie & Amir
Friends, we’ve been photographing Stephanie and Amir’s story from their romantic Military Homecoming to their playful Torrey Pines engagement session, and we seriously couldn’t wait for their November wedding at the iconic Santa Barbara Courthouse. With two precious hearts like Stephanie and Amir’s, we had a feeling this wedding was going to be a VERY special day.
Just when we thought this couple couldn’t get any sweeter, we ABOUT DIED when we heard about the surprise Amir had up his sleeve. He delivered a special video message to his bride on the wedding morning, with images from their engagement that she had no idea were taken! His forethought made for a romantic and emotional gesture that had Stephanie ALL the more ready to make this man her husband.
Stephanie was an absolutely stunnnnning bride, inside and out! Her girls brought the perfect amount of bling and sparkle, Amir proudly wore his Marine formals, and after saying ‘I do’ in a meaningful ceremony in the Mural Room, they walked through the arch of swords to honor their beautiful, life-long commitment of marriage.
Both Stephanie and Amir were completely calm and joyful all day, and that joy was multiplied in their spunky, sweet daughters, Olivia and Lexi. Though they were pretty stinkin’ excited about their pretty flowers and flowing dresses, these little blondies were most excited to become sisters, and for the four of them to become one family.
Wine Cask of Santa Barbara was the perfect intimate space for their 40 guests, and it was evident how dear each and every guest was to the happy couple. During Amir’s heartfelt toast, he spent time thanking guests individually for making it there that weekend. These two and their generous hearts had us smiling ear-to-ear the whole evening!
