Ryan + Michelle

Oh my goodness. Where do I even begin with this wedding? Shelby and I drove up the coast highway on a warm Friday morning en route to Rancho Dos Pueblos just outside of Santa Barbara, CA in a quaint town called Goleta. As the waves crashed outside our car window we talked about our hopes and expectations for Michelle and Ryan's wedding. No doubt they were high, after all we had scoped out Rancho Dos Pueblos online and found that it was a 2200 acre piece of heaven complete with 15 houses, a breathtaking barn, private beach AND currently on the real estate market for a cool $99,000,000. Don't believe us? Check out the listing.

To say that our expectations were exceeded would be a MASSIVE understatement. Our expectations were blown away. On what turned out to be a chilly, and VERY rainy Saturday Kelly Oshiro and so many other talented people (listed below) transformed a rustic ranch into a vision from some sort of movie (I kept thinking a classy Hope Floats). AND while the setting and decor were second to none, the really memorable aspects of the event came from Michelle, Ryan, and the rest of their amazing family and friends. With so much love in the air, the cool weather and rain held no chance of dampening spirits.

All in all, both Shelby and I feel so fortunate to have been a part of such an amazing day. Hope you enjoy a few of our favorites ...
