Sean & Vic's Wedding – The Canary Hotel – Santa Barbara, CA – Part I

8.24.09 | Wedding Photos

Sean, his twin brother Steven and I went to high school together and I was really honored that Sean asked me to photograph his wedding in Santa Barbara at The Canary Hotel. He and Vic met at UC Santa Barbara and soon after graduating they both moved to Boston for grad school, so I never had the pleasure of meeting Vic before the wedding day. Throughout the day, I saw just how perfect they are for each other and was so happy I could document the ceremony and fun party afterward. I have a LOT of favorites from the day, so there will be a Part II post soon.

The Canary Hotel is this great hotel in Santa Barbara and it has this awesome wallpaper lining the hallways. Loved the color and texture as a background to Vic’s beautiful vintage-inspired gown.

Lookin’ sharp, Sean!


There was a fire somewhere in Santa Barbara county that day which turned the sky into this warm, hazy light. I took advantage of that.

Vic – Stunning!


Loved all the colors on this rooftop pool deck!

The happy couple went for a First Look so we had plenty of time for photos before the sunset ceremony. (Ceremony images to be posted in Part II.)
