Elings Park Santa Barbara Wedding | Carrie + Brad

This wedding I photographed recently at Elings Park in Santa Barbara was A M A Z I N G!  Carrie got ready at the Fess Parker Doubletree.  The girls were in such good spirits!  Carrie has such a contagious smile!  We headed over to the Santa Barbara Courthouse to do all the bridal party portraits and first glance.  Of course we headed off in style in the trolly!  I love it when the bride and groom see each other before the wedding. The first glance moment is just the best! I loved the look on Brad’s face when he saw Carrie.  So priceless!

    Great pics again, Chelsea! We love the color of the flowers. Random question…do you have any idea where the guys got their suits?

    The suits/tuxes came from Mission tuxedo in Santa Barbara
