Stop. Before we talk about the magic of the vineyards at Golden Hour in Santa Barbara’s wine country, will you look at Bride Kailin’s wedding dress? If it were us, we would probably be twirling in it all night. It was truly made with magic- and perhaps even some fairy dust – as she (and her groom Phillip) seemed to just float all evening. This wedding is scheduled to be featured on a national wedding blog publication soon, so check back soon for the link, where you will be able to see even more photos and detail.
For now, the imagery of nuptials in front of age-old oak trees with the Firestone vineyards whispering in the background, impeccable special touches and thoughts to detail throughout, including a romantic vintage car getaway – and all of this basking in the light of Golden Hour – should be enough to inspire you.
Update: this wedding was recently featured on Style Me Pretty!
