I am so excited to finally share Ashley & Kyle’s vintage, rustic wedding. They couldn’t have picked a better venue than the gorgeous Apple Creek Ranch near Santa Barbara, CA. The details from Ashley’s cowboy boots to her and Kyle’s charming, DIY, wood ring boxes really shined in this magical place.  Ashley is as smart as she is beautiful and I think her wisest choice was to marry her loving soulmate, Kyle.

There really is so much to love here, but I do have to point out that one of my favorite events of the day was when Ashley, Kyle and their wedding party had a dance off at the reception. Ashley and her bridesmaids did a fun choreographed dance while Kyle and his groomsmen threw together a sweet and silly dance to “Kiss the Girl” from the Little Mermaid. Kyle and his boys blew everyone away. All in attendance were grinning from ear to ear, including me.

Thank you again Ashley and Kyle for having me document your wonderful day. Special thanks to Alyssa Armstrong whom I was more than happy to have shooting by my side. xo, Rachel

SO much goodness from this wedding alone. The trifecta: second shooting for The Heart’s Haven, event styling by Sweet Emilia Jane and the gorgeous LA venue the Smog Shoppe. smog shoppe los angeles wedding-5106 smog shoppe los angeles wedding-5136 smog shoppe los angeles wedding-5177 smog shoppe los angeles wedding-5197 smog shoppe los angeles wedding-5205 smog shoppe los angeles wedding-5254 smog shoppe los angeles wedding-5258 smog shoppe los angeles wedding-5267 smog shoppe los angeles wedding-5269 smog shoppe los angeles wedding-5271 smog shoppe los angeles wedding-5281 smog shoppe los angeles wedding-5334 smog shoppe los angeles wedding-5354 smog shoppe los angeles wedding-5362 smog shoppe los angeles wedding-5363 smog shoppe los angeles wedding-5367 smog shoppe los angeles wedding-5380 smog shoppe los angeles wedding-5385

Manuel and Jorge had a sweet and intimate civil ceremony with only immediate family in attendance at the Old Orange County Courthouse. It was so special to be there to capture these two handsome gentlemen alongside the people that love them the most. We also took some time to take a few photos just down the street from the courthouse. As you can see we had such a fun time. Their smiles are infectious. Thank you Manny and Jorge for your trust in me. It was truly a pleasure. xo, Rachel
