To mark the occasion, Rachael and Ivey rented a house in the foothills of the Santa Ynez Mountains and spent the weekend leading up to their wedding hanging out with their closest family and friends. This peaceful house in Santa Barbara is set on 10-acres of terraced gardens with unbelievable views of the Pacific Ocean. It felt like there was no one else around for miles. One of our favorite parts of this day was the first-look between Rachael and her Dad. It was completely organic, and the reaction as he saw his daughter for the first time in her gown was so sincere. This is the best stuff in life. We're so fortunate to have been part of their day.
