As I arrived at the Santa Barbara County Courthouse, I couldn't help but wander around to take in the beautiful Spanish Colonial revival style architecture and tropical foliage surrounding the building. The deep, dark hallways are laid with copper tone flooring surrounded by hand painted and tiled walls, overhead arches and wrought iron chandeliers. The outside gardens are lush with palm trees and bushes. Truly, a gorgeous piece of history and a wonderful location for a wedding.
The day could not have been more perfect. The beautiful sunny skies warmed the air while tucked in the shade of the courthouse tower. Adorned with white chairs and a sign that read "Happily Ever After Starts Here", the guests slowly began to arrive and take their seats on the Rotunda lawn. The soft, classical flute music filled the area with it's sweet melody as the bride walked in on her father's arm. You could feel the love between Chaustine and Blake as their eyes met and their hands touched. Surrounded by their closest family and friends, including their two year old son, they vowed to be man and wife. Such a beautiful ceremony for an incredibly beautiful couple.
