Katherine + Charlie, surrounded by family + friends, had their wedding at Elings Park in Santa Barbara. Although their home is now further down the coast, they decided to get married near their alma mater, UCSB, because they loved their time in Santa Barbara so much!
The wedding weekend began at the Kimpton Goodland Hotel in Goleta, as their friends and family took over the entire hotel to celebrate Katherine + Charlie together. Katherine + Charlie started their wedding day off by getting ready surrounded by their bridal party. After an intimate first look, they headed to the nearby oceanside cliffs for photos with their bridal party. Everyone was totally surprised by a few parasailers who joined in a few photos as they jumped off for a flight! It was an unforgettable moment and SO much fun to capture.
After photos by the ocean, everyone arrived at Elings Park for a late afternoon ceremony. As their friends + family took their seats in the amphitheater for the ceremony, the excitement was in the air–Charlie could barely hold back his tears. They tied the knot in an emotional and heartfelt exchange of vows officiated by Charlie’s cousin. The party got started right as they walked down the aisle as husband and wife, as cheers reverberated throughout the Elings Park amphitheater!
Katherine + Charlie slipped away to the beach for a few sunset photos before returning to their reception to continue celebrating with their guests. This wedding at Elings Park continued afterward with some of the most hilarious, beautiful, and heartfelt toasts by Katherine’s sister/maid of honor, Charlie’s brother/ best man, as well as Katherine’s dad. As dinner wrapped up, everyone headed out to the dance floor to party the night away!
