Hailey and Zach's Santa Barbara Wedding Details

Hey everybody!

Hailey and Zach's love story is one of my all-time favorites. Out of great tragedy can some some beautiful developments. During the EF-5 tornado that leveled much of Zach's and my hometown of Joplin, Zach kicked into reporter mode, providing information and aid for other Joplinites, as well as the rest of the world (he was on CNN the following day, and in countless newspapers all over the US). What touched me most was that he left his insurance law job to dedicate his time to his hometown, helping victims of the tornado with legal aid.  It was during this time that Hailey heard about Zach.  They became Facebook friends and later, met up for a drink. As we fast forward a few years, Zach and Hailey asked Meredith and me to come to Santa Barbara for their beautiful beach wedding! {I love happy endings.}

Today, as my usual first post of a wedding, I'm going to set the scene for you.

Over the next couple days, I'll be sharing even more (and some of my favorite portraits), so make sure to come back tomorrow!

Talk to you soon,
