Blush Wedding at the Santa Barbara Zoo

Held at the Santa Barbara Zoo, this wedding featured a blush palette and a little rivalry... The bride and groom went to rival schools, UCLA and USC, and so the cake topper featured the two teams' mascots. The Palm Garden ceremony featured a thick carpet of rose petals as well as clusters of cafe au lait dahlias along the aisle. The reception, held at the Hilltop, featured a starburst pattern of chiffon and string lights for a unique design element at the reception. Romantic florals by NLC Productions featured garden roses, peonies, and hydrangea. Wood cabanas with gauzy white fabric featured pretty pink lounges as well as a decadent cake table by Enjoy Cupcakes

Bright & Colorful Santa Barbara Historical Museum Wedding

This colorful wedding held at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum was inspired by the natural bougainvillea and succulents that grow throughout Santa Barbara. For the ceremony, bougainvillea added a pop of pink as did the bridesmaids dresses, all in shades of pink. Individual glasses of champagne in vintage glasses collected by the bride's mother served as both seating cards and a favor for the guests. At the reception, bright tablecloths and tall wrought iron candelabras continued to reflect the Santa Barbara vibe. Soft pink garden roses, contrasted with bright green hydrangea, hot pink roses and succulents made up the flowers by Hogue & Co.

Ombre Wedding at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum

This beautiful couple got married at Santa Barbara's Historical Museum and wanted a romantic, soft, ombre, look for their wedding with just a hint of glamour. The bride's dress was particularly glam with its intricate bead work and is by Reem Acra. The bride actually found her dress on Say Yes to the Dress (and we can see why!). To continue with the glamorous element, the bridesmaids donned long beaded Adrianna Pappell dresses.

For the ceremony, traditional Jewish elements like a cut laser ketabuh, and the light airy chuppa was accented simply with floral tie-backs by NLC ProductionsBella Vista Design strung soft sheer fabric over the reception along with string lights to create romantic lighting. Ombre table numbers, pink flowers, mint table runners, and gold mirrored trays were just some of the decor elements featured on the tables. The cake featured cascading, ombre, pink, flowers and fit in perfectly with the soft romantic elements of this wedding.
