The Gardens of La Bella Vita Wedding Featured on Santa Barbara Chic!

Real Wedding: Santa Barbara Secret Garden Estate Wedding by Tricia Fountaine

Kelly  |  January 07

Today I’m excited to share this absolutely stunning garden wedding designed by Tricia Fountaine and held at one of my favorite garden estates in Montecito. As guests entered the wedding they were greeted by flower filled fountains. How pretty are the shades of yellow, peach and pink?

Reflecting the tones of the flowers, the bridesmaids wore a range of soft pinks, taupes and peaches for their dresses.

The bride carried a peach toned bouquet with peach garden roses, patience garden roses and geranium.

The estate’s statues were adorned with ivy to add to the secret garden feel.

For the ceremony, tin containers were filled with flowers and lined the aisle. At the front, an arbor of branches with trailing flowers created a garden backdrop. On either side, large floral arrangements in weather garden urns were mixed with coppery patina lanterns.

The couple, said “I do” in dappled light while guests looked on.

Old garden keys served as escort cards and guided guests to their seat.

Distressed farm house tables from Town & Country were paired with shabby chic white chivari chairs. Tricia’s collection of vintage lace linens added a feminine touch.

Dahlias, roses, snapdragons, dusty miller and lamb’s ear made up the floral arrangements.

Old tin tiles were placed under some of the floral vignettes.

Table numbers were pieces of birch cut on a angle with the number written in.

A buttercream cake was decorated with pink lisanthus, dahlias, queen anne’s lace, wax flower and spray roses.

And the couple’s grand exit was made extra special with a sparkler send off! Thank youSoigne Productions, for sharing this beautiful wedding with us!
