{Real Weddings} Erica & Jason's Beachside Montecito, California Wedding

What is more gorgeous than a beautiful seaside wedding?  I adore weddings that occur along the Californian coast-gorgeous sunsets, crystal blue waters, fabulous scenery, it is perfect for a romantic and intimate outdoor wedding!

Today's gorgeous wedding was submitted to us by Randi Marie Photography, based in Burbank, California.  The locale of this beautiful couple's wedding is breathtaking, makes me want to hop on a plane and head to Montecito ASAP!

Here's a little note Randi Marie included about Erica and Jason, and the location of the blessed event.  
Driving up a windy dirty road, I suddenly realized how remote and romantic this wedding would be. In the city of Montecito, where streetlights are prohibited and small mom and pop shops are welcomed, I knew this would be a night to remember. Arriving in front of a large gate, I was buzzed in and there, about 3 blocks up, sat a an estate that can only be described as one of the most fabulous locations I’ve ever shot at. Welcome to the Gibboney + Saft wedding, a fabulous couple who had a fabulous wedding. Erica’s personality is like a delicate lily, always so sweet and joyous. And Jason? A gentleman who just always wants to put a smile on Erica’s face. The wedding was held outside overlooking the coast. Surrounded by lush trees and landscape, Erica got ready in the master suite that consisted of pure luxury. Windows open and doors ajar to let in the fresh ocean air, absolutely perfect weather. Getting these two alone, we drove to Butterfly Beach and a local train track to capture some of the cutest of this couple. So happy and in love just to be with each other, it’s an understatement that these two are meant to be. Ending the evening, the family gathered around the barbecue and made lobster tails and steak while drinking wine and reminiscing while the sun set, a perfect way to end an amazing wedding. Congrats you two!

I so love this beach themed wedding.  The couple is breathtaking, as are the surroundings.  I love the bride's choice of wedding dress, so beautiful and light.  I also love the groom's choice of attire, mostly the shoes-rather flip flops!  They look like the type my husband wears daily, I'm certain he would've rathered to have worn those than his fancy closed toed shoes.

I am loving the table decor with a mixture of seashells, candles, and wooden serving ware.  The aqua colors are striking, and I love the use of the oyster shells to bring that natural color to the setting.

I am also swooning over the "first look" images! I love that the groom had a blind fold, and all of a sudden his gorgeous bride was standing before him.  Those moments are so touching and dear.

Many thanks to Randi Marie Photography for submitting this stunning wedding!  Many congrats to Erica & Jason on your recent nuptials!
