From Focused Bliss Productions... Julia and Bryan met through mutual friends, running into each other briefly at different gatherings. However, one night at a party of their friends, they found time alone together where they were able to talk for hours. At that point in time, they both say that they felt a strong spark – a feeling so deep and intense that they had never felt before.

Unfortunately for Bryan, Julia had to leave for a week of travels for work the following day, leaving Bryan hopeful at a chance that they would reconnect when she returned. It’s said that she played a little hard to get when she got back, but Bryan knew he had fallen in love that night and just had to meet with her again.

A few dates later, their relationship quickly grew and it was only a matter of time before they decided to hold a small and secluded wedding by the Pacific Ocean in Santa Barbara California. They rented out the San Ysidro cottage to use to get ready for the day, surrounded by rolling mountains, a garden of flowers, and an orange grove.

Bryan could be found nervously re-reading his vows as Julia got ready in her dress. When both were ready, they moved over to the Casa Del Herrero, an estate constructed in Spanish colonial style architecture, for the wedding itself to exchange their personal vows - witnessed by just their officiant and parents for that special moment.

Afterward, they celebrated with some champagne and cake with their parents before using the remainder of the day to explore the estate and the nearby coastline to capture some beautiful imagery of their day for them to look back on for the years to come.
