Lizzie + Max at the Ritz Carlton Bacara Hotel in Santa Barbara

Magical is truly the best word to describe Lizzie and Max's wedding day at the stunning Ritz Carlton Bacara in Santa Barbara, California. The ocean views and dreamy coastal weather were made even more enjoyable surrounded by the upscale Spanish-style architecture Santa Barbara is famous for. 

Everything about this wedding - from the Bride and Groom's infectious laughter, to the sweet stories shared by their friends and family, is so full of joy. Glowing accounts of the two together, and perfect they are as a couple dominate the conversation and toasts. 

Lizzie and Max attended the same high school, but didn't really know each other. It was at a college party in an entirely different state that they were introduced and couldn't believe the coincidence. The night ended with drinks and a kiss and the two haven't looked back! Max proposed on a candle-lit rooftop with cupcakes (because who says no to cupcakes?) five years later, and they jetted off on a European vacation to celebrate. This fairytale had to be wrapped up in a beautiful bow, and you can't get much closer to perfection than the Bacara. 

Watch their highlight film below to swoon over their seaside ceremony venue as well as Lizzie's light-as-air tulle gown, their California-chic minimal decor, and wish you were celebrating right along with them. 

Didn't you just love every second? We wish we could go back and relive that amazing day! A few of our favorite moments from Lizzie and Max's wedding are below for your viewing pleasure. 

We wish you all the best, Lizzie and Max!! May your continued story be full of love and laughter.
