HOPE RANCH, SANTA BARBARA WEDDING | LAUREN + IGOR
LAUREN + IGOR! I can’t say enough about this super duper sweet couple! It is definitely bittersweet to be blogging their gorgeous wedding which took place here in SANTA BARBARA at the HOPE RANCH RIDING CLUB, because this truly means their wedding is over and I won’t be exchanging emails with them on a regulars basis. Lauren and Igor are just so sweet, kind and generous and they never felt like clients– they always felt like friends! Their day turned out so gorgeous and went so smoothly, which made me so happy for them!
Lauren and Igor have tons of friends and family. People flew from 6 continents to attend this wedding which really speaks volumes about the kind of people Lauren and Igor are! Toward the end of the reception, they opened the mic up for anyone who wanted to toast and so many of their guests stood up to tell funny and lovely stories about these two and to wish them well. It was moving to see how loved they are by so many people, and the positive impact they’ve made on their friends + families lives. But it didn’t surprise me because like I said Lauren and Igor really are such special people! Their whole wedding day was centered around intimacy and making sure all who came to celebrate had a fun time and felt valued. They even included their guests in their ceremony by passing their rings for a “ring warming.”
I could go on and on about these two and their day but let’s face it– you want to see pictures! So we’re almost there! But I do want to especially thank MEG WEST for planning the day so perfectly and my second shooter KELSEY for being my wingwoman…
