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

These two are not engaged but rather just in love. Just for love. No better excuse to take photos.

Two of my favorite things came together yesterday to make some magic. Coffee and one rad, super-duper-in-love couple.

Here’s a sneak from Kim & Alvin’s coffee date engagement at Theorem in Costa Mesa, CA.
