If you read this blog regularly or know me personally, you know that I live in and run this blog from Ventura, California, a small beach community about an hour north of Los Angeles. Now, I’m sure you’re asking yourself, “What in the world does that have to do with today’s wedding?”. Well, I’m getting to that…I promise.
So…as you know, among other things, I publish weddings and engagement sessions submitted by amazing photographers from all over the world. But what you may not know is it’s always extra special for me to publish a submission when it’s from the area where I live and grew up in. Or when it is practically in my backyard like today’s amazing & fun wedding just so happens to be.
Yes, today’s bride and groom Jessica and Kevin, owners of Corktree Cellers and gourmet sandwich shop Peebee & Jays, live in and run their restaurants in Carpinteria, just a few minutes drive up the coast from here. So…when I received this submission, I was delighted to be able to showcase a “hometown” wedding. Plus…Jessica and Kevin put together so many fun details, the wedding is amazing based on those alone. PS…their last name is Clark, hence the significance of the Clark bars 😉 And…I love the fact they wore the traditional garb for the ceremony, then changed into festive, country attire for the “pioneer style” reception celebration, cowboy boots and all. And with the help of photographer Cherry Thomas of bycherry photography, they were able to capture these lovely images of their fabulous day!
