Colorful Historical Museum Wedding Featured on Santa Barbara Wedding Style

Who doesn't love a little color, and this wedding with its bold pops of bougainvillea, featured it in spades. The couple chose the Santa Barbara Historical Museum to host their special day. The ceremony arbor featured hot pink bougainvillea and potted plants for a natural look. The color continued with the bridesmaids, each wearing a hue of pink from soft to bright. After ceremony, guests were treated to a glass of bubbly in a cut crystal glass that also doubled as the seating card and favor. Long tables were dressed in bright orange tablecloths and tall wrought iron candelabras were mixed with centerpieces of dahlias and succulents by Hogue & Co. All was captured by Willa Kveta and planned by Soigne Productions

Winery Wedding at Firestone Vineyard with Olive Details

Firestone Vineyard made for the perfect backdrop for Danielle and Matt's classic winery wedding. Danielle looked stunning in a trumpet lace gown and she wore olive branches and roses tucked in her hair. At the ceremony, two wine barrels at the top of the aisle were dressed with lush floral by Blue Magnolia Events. The reception was held al fresco under an Edison bulb installation by Ambient Event Design. Long tables were set with floral arrangements with peach and white flowers like hydrangea and Juliet roses. And at each place setting, a sprig of olive was tucked into the napkin along with the dinner menu. On the bride and groom's chairs, hand painted signs were accented with more sprigs of olive. And finally, even the simple white cake was accented with olive and succulents for additional texture.

Peach Garden Wedding Featured on Santa Barbara Wedding Style

Under the old oak tree at Gainey Vineyards, this native Santa Barbara couple said "I do" in front of friends of family. The bride chose a wedding dress with a full tulle skirt by Monique Lhuillier and carried a white bouquet with hints of peach by Toast Santa Barbara. Ceremony decor was understated, with two oversized peach floral arrangements arranged in footed urns and set atop wine barrels. The three flower girls walked down the aisle carrying petite baskets tied with streaming ribbon. 
For the color palette, the couple chose classic wedding white, paired with pops of bright peach and pink. Indeed even, actual peaches were used as additional decor on the tables! Guests were seated at a mix of long farmhouse tables from The Tent Merchant and draped round tables featuring La Tavola linen. New West Cateringserved a menu with local flavor, and Enjoy Cupcakes provided a drool-worthy spread for dessert. All, was expertly planned by Soigne Productions and captured by Beaux Arts Photographie.

Bright Pink Wedding at the Fess Parker Doubletree

We absolutely loved working on Alex and Carson's wedding at the beachside Fess Parker Doubletree. Alex actually interned for me a while back and I was so honored when she chose me to plan her wedding day. First up was choosing the location, and the dramatic rotunda was chosen to host both the ceremony and reception. Alex loved color, and chose to carry a bright pink bouquet while her bridesmaids carried petite white bouquets. Color was also key at ceremony, with a hot pink bougainvillea arbor marking the ceremony spot. 

After the kiss, the couple went and took portraits on the beach, which is right across the street from the venue. Guests were treated to a whimsical seating card display with fun earrings acting as clips to hold escort cards. Long tables were setup for dinner and featured tall gold candelabras mixed with low and lush floral centerpieces. At each setting, mini baguettes served as an edible place card. And finally, Bella Vista Designs setup colorful and dramatic lighting in shades of pink and purple which created the perfect atmosphere for the a wicked dance party.
