It was instant attraction when Emily Current and David Brotherton met 12 years ago at a small Hollywood concert. The creative SoCal pair—he’s a studio drummer, she’s a designer and the co-creator of the cult denim line Current/Elliott—bonded and became pals, but it took a few years for them to make the leap beyond friendship. “Once we did, we never looked back,” David says. On a bluff in Maui in April 2011, Emily accepted David’s unexpected proposal. They chose to marry at Dos Pueblos Ranch, just outside of Santa Barbara, because of its awe-inspiring natural beauty and laid-back vibe. The décor combined Americana touches with the bride's favorite fabrics (denim, muslin, and ticking stripes). On July 14, 2012, their 100 guests streamed into a clearing on the ranch’s grounds, took their seats on canvas-covered hay bales, and witnessed the couple’s exchange of self-penned vows.
