Could Santa Barbara be any more perfect? That's the question on my mind today and I'm pretty sure the answer is no. It's one of those stunning California towns I simply adore and when one of its weddings hits my inbox, I know I am about to be inundated with sheer romance from top to bottom. A palette of navy, yellow, and gold; a coastal-inspired celebration; and the sweetness that ensued throughout this day. Lindsay & Jesse are one stunning pair and their love for each other radiates through each and every one of Mary Jane Photography's images of the day. My loves, you are in for quite the treat with this one, so grab and seat and prepare for the inspiration to flow forth! Xoxo.
From the gorgeous bride....
I wanted our wedding to have a beachy and romantic theme. So we had lots of flowers and starfish, and tried to make the wedding a little more laid-back. For instance, I had bare feet during the ceremony and the groomsmen wore linen pants and vests.
Lindsay & Jesse met eight years ago, only a month into college at Boston University. Jesse was friends with Lindsay's roommate and they met one night when he came to hang out. Lindsay & Jesse were joking around with each other the whole time. Shortly after that, they went on their first official date, which went just awful. They had little in common and little to talk about. But somehow, they were able to salvage the date by taking a romantic walk along the Boston Harbor. After that they moved beyond their differences and grew together. Lindsay & Jesse were together through the rest of college and upon graduating BU, they took a leap of faith and got an apartment together in San Francisco. After three years of living together in San Francisco, Jesse surprised Lindsay by proposing in a Sonoma vineyard while they were wine tasting.
