GRAHAM & EVER ~ DESTINATION: COSTA RICA 03.18.11
Graham & Ever decided that their dreams would come to life in beautiful and enchanting Santa Teresa, Costa Rica where the waves are epic for surfing and the relaxed beach atmosphere is ideal for unforgettable wedding celebrations.
Casa Capitan which boasts the largest and most extravagant house in Santa Teresa, and that’s an understatement, makes it the most amazing venue for quaint weddings of 50 guests or less.
The ceremony took place on the beach at sunset, followed by the wedding reception which was a short stroll up the sandy path through the palms to the house and nestled by the infinity pool.
The hanging lights and votives mixed perfectly with the surrounding palm fronds and myriad of strategically arranged Cali lily, orchid, and hydrangea arrangements, all done in the corresponding colors of white and green.

In lieu of wedding favors, guests signed custom made coasters and dropped the coaster into a bowl for the charity of their choice, including a local school, an environmental cause, and an animal shelter. {Which by the way, is just a magnificent idea!}

Congratulations to Graham & Ever, may they have a long and joyous life journey together!!

WE WELCOME PAUL BARNETT PHOTOGRAPHY!! 07.30.10

The Bridal Bar is honored to make a picturesque addition to our portfolio of accomplished shutterbugs!

Paul Barnett’s work is evidence of his unobtrusiveness and his quick and spontaneous eye. Paul is invisible during the process, allowing his subjects to be relaxed, and most importantly, be themselves. With predecessors of the photo-documentary movement such as Henri Cartier Bresson and Helen Levitt, Paul’s photographic intuition allows him to release the shutter at the decisive moment.

Paul Barnett’s wedding images embrace the concept of both perspective and attitude.  Based on a mandate to be truly reactive rather than proactive and a dedication to record events as a historian rather than a director. The final result; a collection of photographs, genuine and unrehearsed, that bring to life the small idiosyncrasies that define us as individuals, close family and good friends.

Paul Barnett’s unique style and quality craftsmanship is known throughout North America, Europe and Mexico, as he has been commissioned to photograph weddings from New York, to Hawaii, as well as Copenhagen, Berlin, and London. Paul’s photographs have been published internationally and he frequents the pages of Grace Ormonde Wedding Style, Inside Weddings and Martha Stewart Weddings.

Equally popular is Paul Barnett’s child photography. A lesson in effortless un-complicated portraiture. Presented as stunning black and white fine art photography, Paul Barnett brings to film that deep penetrating “look” that many times only the parent can see. Based in San Diego, Paul Barnett has become the preeminent choice for those families seeking genuine documentation of the growth and development of those we love.

WREN & SCOTT 07.22.10


Our Story: Scott was playing college baseball when a mutual friend of theirs on the Softball team introduced him to me. There was instant chemistry and we have been together ever since. That was in 2001! After graduating from UCSB, both Scott and I returned to Los Angeles to begin our careers. Scott, an avid sports fan, is an Associate Producer for Fox Sports Net. I worked for several years as Business Analyst and Project Manager before moving into Event Planning. Scott proposed to me on my 26th birthday. While opening birthday gifts, he slipped the ring box in the bottom of a new pair of Uggs. When I couldn’t get my foot into the Ugg, I reached into the boot and pulled out a ring box – to only look up and see Scott on one knee.


Since Scott and I both live in Los Angeles, it wasn’t always easy planning a wedding down South, especially when it came to finding the best vendors! After talking – and meeting – with several photographers in the San Diego area, both my Mom and I spoke with Aaron at True Photography. Aaron won us both over! He was so nice, yet very easy to talk to and never pushy. He accommodated all of our needs, and was always available to answer questions. Our photographer Michael even arranged our Engagement shoot over the Christmas/New Year holiday! The wedding was amazing, the shots that Michael and Janice captured are unbelievable! Could not have asked for more! Scott and I feel so lucky that we had such wonderful Vendors, we had a perfect day!
