Karissa and Jonas are both artists with a serious sense of personal style. Karissa spent much of her childhood in China and she used a lot international inspiration for her wedding day. She designed her own dress after 1999 Coco Chanel and coupled it with a 20 foot silk sari for her train. The day was full of artistic details including a gold-dipped bird skull boutonniere, a traditional chinese tea ceremony, and their amazing 50s chevy get away car. The ceremony was held in the Mural Room in the historic Santa Barbara courthouse – a beautiful cathedral-style room with restored paintings covering the walls. The reception was an intimate event held at the Opal – a local Santa Barbara restaurant – with amazing food and ambiance. Beyond being unique and artistic, Karissa and Jonas are genuinely great people and their wedding day was truly a joy to be a part of. We hope you enjoy!
