    Shauna & Chad Colorful Destination Wedding in Santa Barbara

    September 3, 2011 at The Santa Barbara Inn

    Wedding Details

    1 Love

    The bright colors of Santa Barbara inspired this wedding. The sky is so blue, the grass so green, the bright colors of the flowers, and I knew I wanted bright colors to go along with the bright colors of gorgeous Santa Barbara in the summertime. I went to college in Santa Barbara and knew when it was my turn to say "I do," it would be in Santa Barbara, even though we live in Seattle now.

    The Couple


    Chad's first trip to Santa Barbara he asked Shauna, "Do people actually work here?," because everyone was at the beach, or riding bikes, or shopping. Chad loves playing golf, video games, and hiking.


    Shauna loves the sunshine and the beach. She loves riding horses and running along the coastline of Santa Barbara.


    Together we complete each other. Shauna runs marathons and Chad is her cheerleader.

    Our Love Story

    Chad and Shauna met online and had a blind first date. Shauna was so nervous, she nearly canceled the first date. Instead, she was 45 minutes late. Luckily, Chad had made dinner reservations 45 minutes later than he told her to meet at the restaurant, as if he knew Shauna is known for running perpetually late. The first date ended up in closing the restaurant down from talking and talking, and they have been inseparable ever since.

    What's Next

    Chad and Shauna have just celebrated their one year anniversary and their next step is starting a family.
