Amanda and Freddy were such a joy to work with, and it was so interesting hearing about their love story! They planned a wedding ceremony and reception in London (where they live together). However, Amanda always imagined tying the knot in Santa Barbara since it was where she grew up… so she figured, why not make things official before we celebrate with everyone with a Santa Barbara courthouse wedding?
They gathered up their immediate families and closest Santa Barbara friends to make it official! They got married at the Santa Barbara Courthouse, took some photos at Amanda’s house, and then celebrated together with a fancy dinner overlooking all of Santa Barbara. It was such a nice day! They were so intentional, and each detail was authentic to them.
It was Amanda’s dog’s birthday as well, so it got a birthday cookie to celebrate! Plus, her dog was included in the photos. HOW CUTE IS THAT! I think it just makes it all the more special and love that they included their sweet dog.
I think it’s so cool how Amanda and Freddy did things. It was their special day, and they celebrated their marriage how they wanted to! I believe that’s also why Amanda and Freddy look so freakin’ cool in their photos. They knew they were going to have an entirely separate wedding day in an entirely new place, so why not take the coolest looking photos with this opportunity?
