Union Hotel, Los Alamos

I am so excited to marry adorable Sarah & Hunter at the Union Hotel, Los Alamos this month! They are so adorable, having met in German class and studying abroad in Germany, where they fell in love. Then after a (nervous) engagement by a waterfall in Iceland, they decided to have their union at the Union! (Hotel). Such a fun country old timey vibe there. Stay posted for pix! :-)

Shade Hotel, Manhattan Beach Wedding

These two lovely brides tied the knot in front of gorgeous walls of succulents at the hip Shade Hotel in Manhattan Beach. Both families came together to support this celebration of love, commitment and union. Such an honor!

Heartfelt Family Vows at El Encanto

Talk about an adorable wedding party! The guests at Ashleigh & Justin's simply elegant wedding at El Encanto lily pond included their 5 adorable teenage daughters. The bride and groom stopped on the pond bridge for their first dance, with approving turtles looking on. They exuded fun and love, and I was honored to be a part of creating a special union for this lovely family!

Greengate Ranch Gorgeousness!

I had never been to Greengate Ranch before in San Luis Obispo; but I had already fallen in love with Tim & Amy...When I saw the gorgeous setting, a green grass peninsula jutting out into a vineyard pond, with gorgeous flowers and the sweetest couple in love, I was over the top smitten with this wedding. Their sweet comments were just the frosting on the cake! (BTW their dessert hutch was amazing too!) Every detail was over the top, oozing with ranch elegance. I will never forget this day and this sweet couple/new friends! "Amy said... Barbra officiated our wedding in beautiful San Luis Obispo. The ceremony was everything we could have dreamed of and so much more. Barbra did such a wonderful job - her words were heartfelt, personal, special, and fun! She took the time to really get to know my husband I before the ceremony and even asked us some fun personal questions that she tied in perfectly to the ceremony. We knew within minutes of skyping with her that she was exactly what we were looking for. She had everyone laughing one minute, and crying the next. We continue to hear from all of our guests that it was the most beautiful wedding ceremony they have ever been to. She was a huge part of our wedding weekend and she felt like part of the family right away. We can't recommend Barbra enough! She is exactly what we were looking for and in addition to being our officiant, we also did couples counseling with her a few times before the wedding. The sessions were helpful, comfortable, and tons of fun. Barbra makes everything relaxing and stress-free, which is SO important to have for a bride/groom while they're planning a million other things around their big day. We love you Barbra! - Amy & Tim"
