Crazy Santa Barbara Wedding Proposal Shoot

We had the chance to work with Nico Designs again!!!! (have we mentioned how much we love this guy?!) on a romantic wedding proposal story.

The story is of a boy asking the love of his life to marry him. He invites her to a secret place in the woodlands of Santa Barbara. She arrives in a classic Rolls-Royce and is lead down a rustic path where she finds hints and love notes guiding her closer and closer to the romantic setting he prepared for her… a table for two covered with dreamy white roses, candles, vases, moss, Champagne Perrier-Jouët, place settings, a horse, two lounge chairs and a sign that says “will you marry me?” Happily she says yes and after enjoying an evening together they walk arm in arm through a lantern lit dirt path.

(Why I didn’t think up all of this stuff when I proposed to Cheryl is beyond me… I wish I could go back in time and bring on Nico and Lindsey to make this happen!!!)

Nico out-did himself and we cannot sing his praises enough! Thank you for allowing us to photograph this beautiful story for you.

Big props to Fresco for the awesome desserts! And a huge thanks to Lindsey from Magnolia Event Design for her production help as well! It was a huge project and without everyone’s help it wouldn’t have been the same.
