This occasion perfectly highlighted the love of two high school sweethearts. Their love burns bright as ever, growing stronger each and every day.

The space was full of darling details like personalized mason jars for each person, loads of framed photos, pretty signage and little potted plants. In an ode to their family's roots, the celebration had rustic touches and plenty of Southern charm.

Ah, the beginning of June— the cusp between spring and summer. The first taste of summer has been savored with it's seemingly endless days and the comforting warmth of the sun upon one's skin. Bright. Inviting. Exciting. Optimistic. A time for shedding layers, literally and figuratively. A time of year to look forward to. The most symbolic season of the year in regards to marriage. Even though June can be finicky here in Santa Barbara, with unpredictable fog. Jessica and Jared burned right through the marine layer with their love. Burning bright and intensely like the summer sun.
The celebration marked the joining of two families into one and the night couldn't have happened without the support of the bride and grooms' loved ones.

Bravo to Mike, the groom's father and uncle for preparing a full Italian spread for dinner and to Roberta, the groom's mom for creating a beautiful event down to the last detail.
