Colorful Santa Barbara Beach Wedding

We had so much fun planning this true Santa Barbara beach wedding. Lauren and Jon chose to have their wedding at her family beach house and picked a bright and cheery fiesta palette of oranges, yellow, pinks and turquoise.  The bride carried a bouquet made up of dahlias, peonies and ranunculus by Hogue and Co

As guests entered the beach ceremony, a display of colorful flips flops encouraged guest to lose their shoes and get beach chic.  Down the aisle, colorful pomanders led up to a birch arbor with bright, tropical, floral accents.

Afterwards, guests enjoyed games and cocktails on the beach and deck. In lieu of a formal sit-down dinner, guests enjoyed tacos by 3 Girls Catering and lounged in an eclectic mix of seating from Town and Country Event Rentals, including, lounge cabanas, long wood tables and cocktail tables. String lighting, star lanterns and white chiffon by Bella Vista Designs set the mood. And finally, the wedding cake, made by a close friend, was decorated with gerber daisies, roses, and mums.

Intimate Wedding at Figueroa Mountain Farmhouse

Kendra and Jeff chose to incorporate traditional Hawaiian and Asian elements into their wedding day celebration at Figueroa Mountain Farmhouse. At the ceremony, one thousand cranes decorated the entrance and hot pink ginger flowers designed by the bride, marked the aisle. The bride wore a fitted Monique Lhuillier lace wedding gown and for her 'maids, long flowing dresses in soft pastel colors. Table decor was kept simple and classic with a neutral taupe linen, tropical foliage and white dendro orchids made a runner down the table. For entertainment, the couple surprised the guests with an energetic performance from the Taiko Project
