Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History | Jen and Chad

Jen and Chad were married last Fall at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History. They had two beautiful ceremonies. The first ceremony was held under the oaks and sycamores near the creek bed, followed by hors d’oeuvres in the museum’s garden. Everyone then gathered in the courtyard for the traditional Korean tea ceremony in bright, beautiful colors.

Jen and Chad met during their studies. Keeping with their interest in marine biology, they did an amazing job making all the decorations themselves in a biology theme. A card catalog held the guest cards that assigned each guest to their table by taxonomy. Bottles of wine with custom labels and cards with drawings of marine life forms decorated each table.

My wife and I so much enjoyed photographing Jen and Chad’s wedding! And I have to say that the Korean tea ceremony was a definite highlight for me.

Thank you Jen and Chad!

This post is part one of their wedding. Part two will be of the Korean tea ceremony and reception.
