This was a day that was dreamed of for YEARS! FYI this is my sister, not me! Sav and Ryler had a romantic Santa Barbara wedding at the Stow House! It was seriously a dream come true for them. It was amazing to be able to capture their wedding day, and I also did their engagement session at Yosemite National Park! You can check out their engagement session HERE! The Stow House is a national landmark in California so it was awesome that Sav and Ryler were able to celebrate their love here AND have me be a part of the day, too!
Before we jump into this gorgeous Stow House, let’s cover the basics! I’m married to my high school sweetheart. So me and my sisters knew he would be apart of the family. Well we always dreamed up the guys that the other three would marry! Then one day, I went and did a photo shoot for my sister and her friends.… to paint the scene I was a new mom to two baby boys. I drove an hour to do this for them with the kids in the car. I had to get there early in case I had blowouts or I had to feed the kids. This 30min session turned into two hours because more people showed up expecting photos. And so this now became a five-hour day. Needless to say, this turned into a very very stressful day for a new mom with 2 screaming babies!
The point is – one person opted in to help me, he saw I was struggling and gently came to help, no questions asked. Not only did he help me, but he played with the kids, made the kids laugh, and calmed them down! He then encouraged the rest of the group to help out. I looked at Savannah and said “Who’s this guy?!? Why aren’t you dating him!”. She looked at me and said “Because he’s my best friend, I can’t do that!”. The story goes on, but multiple times the family spotted Ryler from miles away and Ryler patiently waited for Savannah to realize, that it was okay to date her best friend, and that He was Her forever! Finally Savannah did realize and now that leads us here to this STUNNING Santa Barbara wedding at The Stow House!
