When Rachel and Nick asked me to head down to Santa Barbara for their courthouse wedding, I immediately had two thoughts: 

1. This couple must be awesome because Courthouse weddings rock! 

and...

2. Count me in! 

So on a sunny California day, I found myself crying over the exchange of epically heartwarming vows as my hypothesis proved true! This couple is AWESOME! 

From the invitation stationary to the exchanging of notes to the small signs paying tribute to both Rachel and Nick's parents, every little detail throughout the day added a touch of honest character and grace. I cannot thank Rachel and Nick enough for inviting me to capture their special day and for being two absolutely ridiculously amazing people whom I am so happy to have connected with! 

Oh and PS: Rachel's idea for some sunset beach pics during cocktail hour was perfection!
