A Santa Barbara Courthouse Wedding captured on a mix of 35mm film and digital. Marissa and Sam had an intimate outdoor ceremony in the courtyards of the Santa Barbara Courthouse. It was the first sunny day of spring and the space was bursting with vibrant spring flowers. It was such a life giving and inspiring day to be a part of.

They got ready for the day at the quaint Plalihouse Hotel, which was such a perfect space to prep for the day. It’s right in the center of town and with its Spanish architecture, cozy nature, and bright poolside area (with the cutest pink umbrellas), it was such a fun space to get started.

Marissa and Sam decided to have their ceremony outside in the courtyard of the Santa Barbara Courthouse. It was such a gorgeous choice for their wedding because the historic Spanish architecture of the courthouse was such a beautiful backdrop. They stood in the lush green grass to exchange their vows and become husband and wife. They had their closest loved ones in attendance to witness this special moment.

They ended their day with pizza, cake and champagne. The whole celebration was nontraditional, chill, and absolutely perfect. They explored the grounds and took pictures throughout the space together after all of the planned festivities were done. There are endless beautiful options for pictures together at the Santa Barbara Courthouse, as you’ll soon see. From the murals, art, and incredible historic interior spaces to the lush green courtyards filled with endless floral filled nooks and noteworthy tiles and walkways, Marissa and Sam got to enjoy some sweet together moments as newlyweds.
