There is something about an old-fashioned church wedding that gets us every time.  Jennifer and Tyler wed at the gorgeous Our Lady of Mount Carmel church in Montecito and then , after some photos at iconic locations around Santa Barbara, chose to celebrate at one of Santa Barbara’s wedding location gems:  The Santa Barbara Historical Museum.  The vibrant floral arrangements tempered with the calming ocean-blue table setting touches and custom taco stations for their wedding menu brought all the summer splendor of Santa Barbara  to their dining experience for their guests.  And we were delighted to be a part of such a lovely celebration!
