Kat and Kory met at UCSB and despite the immense differences in their cultural heritage, quickly fell in love. Being from Germany, Kat has a uniqueness about her that can only be attributed to culture. She is both delighful and a touch reserved, with simple yet elegant taste, and an abhorrence for wanton splendor and waste. Combined with Kory’s own keen sense of what he wanted, their wedding was extraordinarily beautiful and yet simple. The focus was upon the beauty of the venue the open-beach of Santa Barbara’s gorgeous coast, and family. After those two criteria were fulfilled (and fulfilled they were), the rest of the details were trivial for these two. I’m so grateful for having gotten to spend the day with these people, helping to co-create and capture the magic of their day.
