Set at the most beautiful and luxurious hotel in Santa Barbara, Ninve and Tim opted to have a destination beach wedding for their shared nuptials at the oceanfront Four Seasons Biltmore Hotel. Every guest except her sister flew or drove in from out of town.

No detail was left untouched and Ninve’s Assyrian culture was especially important and can be seen during their high energy Grand Entrance Assyrian dancing with handkerchiefs held high in the air by their guests. Tim was especially dance happy and it was cute to see him assimilate so well into the tradition that Ninve grew up with.

Ninve and Tim decided to go the traditional route and did not see each other until the garden beachfront ceremony. And what a priceless wait! The smile on both of their faces after seeing each other just said it all! From then on and throughout the evening, it was their sweet gazing smiles that were completely infectious and a delight to film!

Now here’s a couple truly in love and surrounded by special loving family and friends who gave touching and funny toasts. Just look at this happy bride adoring her groom. Ninve and Tim reside in New York together and I wish them the very best of married life! Congratulations to you both!
