Four Seasons The Biltmore Resort, Santa Barbara, California

Four months before their wedding, Lauren and Deron switched the location from their hometown of Bakersfield, CA, to the Four Seasons The Biltmore in Santa Barbara. It’s easy to see why.

The Four Seasons is a gorgeous oceanfront property that blends luxury with lush natural surroundings. Lauren and Deron had an outdoor ceremony in front of a dramatic backdrop of tropical palm trees and majestic mountains. Their unique first dance was on a circular dance floor right next to the rolling waves of the Pacific Ocean. Guests were treated to dinner and dancing inside the ballroom, amid hues of purple and gold.

Besides the gorgeous bride and groom, there was another very special person at this wedding – Mauricio’s 2014 bride Jena, who had a Big Sur wedding at the Paion Estate. Jena, who is also from Bakersfield, was one of Lauren’s bridesmaids.

This was a long, eventful day with so many beautiful details and fun moments to photograph, and there were about 400 guests. Mauricio was fortunate to have Chrisman Studios photographer Ryan Zhang, and additional photographer Marc Flores, join him for this spectacular California wedding.
