At a jazz bar in New York’s West Village, Mark Kramer met Michelle Coleman while both celebrated friends who passed the bar. Sparks flew that evening, but that meet-cute did not result with a date until later that fall at a Friendsgiving. After a second interaction, the rest, as they say, was history. The stylish New York couple decided upon Santa Barbara for their wedding weekend and ensured their guests enjoyed the full destination experience.
But before guests arrived and the festivities began, Mark and Michelle first said ‘I do’ privately, at mass, surrounded only by their families. This special ceremony was sophisticatedly simple and allowed space for focus on the meaning of the affair. Michelle chose a Carolina Herrera sheath tied at the shoulders with blue silk which danced beautifully as she walked in the California breeze. Following the ceremony, the couple hopped in a vintage Mercedes convertible for a sunset cruise by the water. The West Coast backdrop and relaxed love Mark and Michelle carried towards each other made for a sacred evening to begin a beautiful weekend (and life!) together.
