Panthea and Ben’s beautiful Bacara Resort and Spa wedding brought us to the edge of one of California’s most beautiful corners. Just north of the town of Santa Barbara in the town of Goleta, the resort offers everything one could offer, including it’s own beach access villas designed in classic spanish. Santa Barbara wedding photography is memorable in it’s own ways but what we’ll remember most about Panthea and Ben’s day was their constant, smiling faces. Despite their luxurious Santa Barbara wedding, the mood of the day was laid-back, light and fun. As Panthea prepared for the ceremony, the boys played ping-pong and after the ceremony we hopped on a golf cart with the couple as they quickly nourished themselves with some tasty sliders. The only time their smiles took a break was when Ben first saw Panthea coming down the aisle in her work-of-art dress. His tightly pursed lips revealed the strain in holding back tears of pure joy. It was never hard capturing sweet moments between the two – they truly are are each other’s best friend.
