Santa Barbara Wedding: Ashley & Patrick Osak

This may be the quintessential DARLING wedding. They absolutely nailed everything that I am after: romance, nostalgia, modernism, elegance, coziness, and sincerity.

Let me help you feel it before you see it: A lush resort wedding, and a destination wedding at that. Tropical foliage. Arches and palms and wooden beams. A cool morning in the resort, sunny afternoon in the city, and thundery sky after party. A string of borrowed diamonds, an escort of knockout bridesmaids, a white dress that made her feel like the bride she always imagined being, property with cottage like villas bunking their traveling guests, a beaming family, a kind family, friends that felt like family, and a groom who couldn’t take his eyes off of her. She was radiant– just everything that draws you in. He was in awe, and drawn in he was.

It was the culmination of every bit of affection and hilarity and support they’d ever shown each other. It was a celebration fit for the best of friends who just happen to love making out with only each other, it was the type of day that resurrects your hope in lifelong love.

These two don’t just adore each other in thought or intention, they deeply and wholly care for each other in action.

I was so blessed to be their photojournalist, running after the springs of gratitude bubbling over, storing them in pixels that build into plot lines. There was so much gratitude shown all day long, not just for each other, but for their guests who chose to held them high and celebrate them hard.

Ashley and Patrick, you kindaaaa kill me in the best way possible. Seriously–dream clients. Not only did I feel so inspired telling your visual story, but I had fun HANGING OUT with you. You are good good people and I love what you’ve found in one another. Bless you, you beautiful beautiful people.
