Dustin & Sarah


When Dustin met Sarah on a camping trip to the Lake Naciamento he knew something was different about her. As he returned to his hometown in Ohio they continued to build upon their interest in one another and began a long distance relationship.


This love later lead on to a lovely June day where I was honored to photograph their wedding at Rancho San Antonio, a picturesque country wedding venue located in central California nestled within the rolling hills of the Santa Ynez Valley. From the details in their heirloom jewelry, to the details in the fine China provided during this beautiful Santa Ynez wedding reception the day was entirely perfect.


The Rancho San Antonio ceremony site is a spectacular example of a venue with the perfect amount country elegance as a white vintage chairs aligned the aisle leading to a giant valley oak tree.  Beneath the giant valley oak tree adorned with a crystal chandelier the couple exchanged their vows. 


Since they chose not to do a first look, as Dustin first saw Sarah walk down the aisle you could see the look of pure joy and excitement to see his bride to be. In that moment you knew how much you love and adoration he had for this woman.


My favorite part of the wedding was both this amazing wedding party as seen above and when the owner of Rancho San Antonio, Bobbi, drove us up into the mountains in her four wheel drive vehicle where we between the rolling hills of the Santa Ynez mountain range.  It was for sure the first and hopefully not the last I can say that I went off roading with a bride and groom on their wedding day.
