From the first date 12 years prior to their stunning “I do” in the Santa Barbara Bluffs, this sweet couple is proof that good things come to those who wait. And with Paul & Jewel Studios capturing every moment of their special day, it’s no wonder we’re borderline obsessed. Fill up that cup o’ joe and join me in the gallery right over here.


From Paul & Jewel Studios… This sweet couple from Texas had their first date 12 years ago. They went in different directions then but always remained friends, and here they are now! Carre and Donald joined their families together with a beautiful celebration at the bride’s family home in sunny Santa Barbara. Her parents were also married at the same estate, so special. This wedding featured so much beauty: an exuberant bride and groom, a flowing blush wedding gown, stunning ocean views, custom details, vibrant purple florals, adorable dressy kids, and lively fun times.
