Carly and Tom celebrated their black tie wedding at the chic and modern Hotel Californian. The Hotel Californian is a charming, boutique hotel in the heart of Santa Barbara’s funk zone and is located just one block from the ocean. The Hotel is vibrant in every sense, from its cool location in Santa Barbara’s urban downtown, the modern interior design, to the 360 degree ocean and mountain views. Everywhere you look, there is beauty.
It is a perfect venue for a wedding, offering not only amazing views for your wedding ceremony and portraits, but also luxurious Mediterranean decor adorned by black and white Moroccan tiles throughout all of the spaces. The luxurious interior and the hotel's many charming patios and rooftop decks offer so many different photography backdrops for photos throughout the day.
We enjoyed exploring the hotel with Carly and Tom, capturing photos of the bride and groom amidst the terracotta rooftops and the Spanish mission architecture of the hotel. The day was filled with sweet gestures, deeply touching speeches and so much laughter, and fun. There was an infectious feeling of joy in the air that was felt by the bride and groom and their guests alike.
