Santa Barbara Catholic Ceremony & Backyard Reception- Justine & Leo


Bride and groom first dance

Justine & Leo's wedding was full of love and fun, despite the hiccups from Covid. They got ready at the Ritz-Carlton Bacara in Santa Barbara, with the wedding at the St. Raphael Catholic Church, and the reception in Justine's backyard. All in all it was a beautiful day!
