The Info—Venue: Santa Barbara Historical Museum, Santa Barbara, CA. Dress: Saja Wedding, Necklace: Button Soup Jewelry, Shrug & Shawl: Sweet Knitting, Hair Fascinator: Sweet Grass Mill Suit: A no-brand number from a suit outlet in downtown Los Angeles. Photographer: Christina Richards Weddings

Other cool stuff we should know about: Our peanut butter dessert cookies were stamped with the words “KICK ASS” and “HELL YEAH.” Our grand entrance was to Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage” and we heightened the effect by wearing mirrored aviator sunglasses.

One sentence sum up of the wedding vibe: An outdoor celebration of love and community underscored by food, friends, family, fun, and booze.

Favorite thing about the wedding: I was going through these questions on the phone with my husband and when I got to this one, he immediately answered “Marrying the person I love.” Which is an entirely awww-inducing, APW-appropriate response. And here I was trying to think of details. Anyway, my answer: the moment I looked down during the ceremony and saw that our officiant-friend had accessorized his suit with bare feet. That’s the moment when I finally let everything go and thought, okay. Okay. Let’s just sit back and see what happens from here.
