elings park santa barbara wedding photographer / nicole + allen

I'm am so grateful to get amazing clients like Nicole + Allen. They are beautiful inside and out. This wedding was flawless from start to finish. The weather was just perfect, I was obsessed with their 14 year old golden retriever Johnny, the variety of food was delicious, the colors were vibrant, the setting was breath-taking and Nicole + Allen were a dream to work with. Amazing vendors: Venue: Elings Park in Santa Barbara // Wedding Coordinator: Summer Newman Events // Florals: The Twisted Twig  // Hair and Makeup: Unveiled  // Cake: Lele Patisserie  Bridal Dress: Love and Lace Bridal Salon - Wtoo Betty by Watters  // DJ: Music by Bonnie  // Catering: The Burger Bus// Santa Barbara Woodfire Catering  // Wedding Sinage: Lauren Kawahara

Words from the bride: Allen and I met in 5th grade, and he's had a crush on me ever since. Just kidding, but he did like me first. We started dating before senior year of high school and have been on many adventures since then.
We chose Elings Park because we love Santa Barbara and wanted an outdoor wedding. The venue is so naturally beautiful and the views are breathtaking. Our vision for the wedding was romantic, unique, and creative fun. We wanted our guests to remember the delicious food, gorgeous decorations, and fun times with friends and family.
My advice for future brides is to enjoy the wedding. It's so true what everyone says - it goes by so quickly. Take a mental snapshot of the important moments, and don't sweat the small stuff. No one will notice if one thing is out of place. Also, don't procrastinate! Stay organized and on top of it.
