If you have been hanging out with SMP for a little while now, you know two things: one, we love San Ysidro Ranch and two, we love when Michael & Anna Costa get behind the lens. And when those two things collide, we get a take-your-breath-away beauty like this little wedding right here. It’s full of that simple, sophisticated style that goes so well with the pretty backdrops of this venue, and topped off with a couple who’s smiles say it all. It has everything we love here at SMP, and you can see it all right here!
From Michael & Anna Costa Photographers Ltd.… Nestled in the backwoods of Montecito, California, is not only the perfect spot for a wedding, but also for delighting in the wonderland that is San Ysidro Ranch. Aki and Imraan opted for a secluded and intimate celebration of their nuptials and the Wine Cellar at San Ysidro Ranch couldn’t have been more perfect — a thousand paper cranes swaying from the trees and family closely surrounding them they exchanged vows. Incorporated in their ceremony were Japanese, Indian and Western traditions that perfectly complemented their blending of cultures. Between the lavender fields and olive trees, the pergola of jasmine and roses — photo backdrops were endless. And as they dined amongst a myriad of pink peonies, the evening twinkled with the warmth of flickering candles and moonlight.
