The sun rose to bring with it another beautiful spring day in Santa Barbara California. Although, this was a day that was supposed to have happened already. After a changed date, a new Santa Barbara wedding venue, and a much more intimate guest list, Julie & Joe were finally able to celebrate their union together. In a time of craziness in our world, Julie & Joe’s courthouse wedding in Santa Barbara brought hope, joy, and a whole lot of love.
Underneath the long shadow of the clocktower, Julie & Joe held hands while standing in front of each other. Their family formed a half-circle around them, keeping the intimacy of this moment completely theirs. The part of the day they were both looking forward to the most was about to be here. Something they had been waiting to say to each other for an additional two months. It was almost time for their best friend and officiant, to ask them to say “I do”. Because that’s what matters most to Julie & Joe. Commitment to the belief that two are better than one. And of course, marrying your best friend is always a recipe for happiness.
Julie & Joe, we know this was not the day that you originally planned, but throughout this whole process, you never stopped being the kind-hearted and joyful couple we’ve come to know you to be. We are so thankful that we got to be a part of your special and intimate wedding day. You married your best friend and were surrounded by so much love on this perfect day. We’re excited to continue the celebrations this next year with the rest of your guests! Until then, enjoy your marriage. It’s a wonderful thing to marry your bestie.
