Sometimes the very best weddings are the very smallest. The intimate backyard affairs that are filled to bursting with love, like this one from Danielle Capito Photography. It was stunning, yes, but you can almost feel the love radiating out of your computer screen. It’s a total heartwarmer, this one.


From the photographer… Christian & Shasta met in 2010 in San Francisco, and had a long distance relationship until late 2011 (Groom lived in SF and bride lived in Santa Barbara). Christian moved to Santa Barbara in early 2012 and proposed to his amazing girlfriend on January 4, 2013. They are a fairly simple couple but love quality and live a fulfilling lifestyle. They opted to have a big honeymoon in September 2013 in Portugal and Ireland, hence the smaller wedding at his family’s orchard in San Luis Obispo.
