Yeah this was an extra fun wedding! I love heading up to the Rincon / Santa Barbara area for weddings! Por Que you may ask? Because firstly I love the coastal air, secondly 99.9% of the time the venues have something totally kick ass to shoot and lastly because my SANTA BARBARA brides and grooms rock! I don’t know what it is but every time I book out there I meet the most incredibly nice and fun loving couples. Aubrey and Stefon were a perfect example of that and their RINCON BEACH CLUB WEDDING was AMAZING!
You know…you probably read all these blogs and wonder ” but are all your couples REALLY that awesome? ” Truth. I have been super blessed all these years to not only have some incredible couples BUT because of that it restores my faith in that the everyday person can and sometimes IS an incredible person to know. I say this because I’m an introvert at home and extrovert when shooting, it’s hard to balance these scales sometimes but when I get to rock with people I have only known through phone or email and have a great time, it chips away the block of anxiety I have when lets say I go to a crowded place for dinner. Know what I mean? So YES long story long my couples are AMAZING and if you had a chance to spend an hour with any of them, you’d agree.
Aubrey and Stefon rented this really cool AirBnB in Rincon nestled inland a little. This little place was rad. It lent itself to SO many different aspects of what I was trying to accomplish in story. Fantastic bridal prep room, separate groom room ( well a living room that was far enough away haha ) and the outside was surrounded by lemon trees, lilipads and other beautiful greenery. It offered so much that we knocked out pretty much all of our shots there. Prep, wedding party and creatives.
Once we knocked out all that goodness we headed over to RINCON BEACH CLUB for the ceremony and reception. For those that haven’t been to RINCON BEACH CLUB, you should. The food and atmosphere is killer and it’s a two minute walk to the beach. What I like personally is the intimate nature of the venue. It’s small but is perfectly sectional for hanging out, the bar is top notch and the ceremony location is really pretty. Every time I shoot here it never poses a problem of having to run too far for anything.
During the ceremony Stefon’s groomsman walked out with a little swagger that brought the house down then each one gave there own secret handshakes hahaha! This was great and one thing I noticed is that this small act set the tone for the rest of the day. Everyone was having a great time but after this it seemed like they were all glowing…could have been the drinks though too HAHAHA!
When reception time rolled around Stefon had a surprise for Aubrey and serenaded her with two back up dancers! It was an amazing moment. One that I’m positive their friends and family will never forget. After that it was an open dance floor to party the night away.
Aubrey and Stefon’s RINCON BEACH CLUB WEDDING was incredible to experience and even more so be a part of.
