Santa Barbara Riviera Wedding, Spring 2016

Rachelle and Philip’s Santa Barbara Riviera Wedding was inspired by the Northern Italian and Mediterranean Roots (the groom’s family hails from Madrid and the bride’s late grandfather from the Veneto region of northern Italy) and was filled with meaningful touches and memorable moments — from the reception at the bride’s grandmother’s home (the Villa Doria Garden) on the Riviera and the olive-wreath accented thank you cards to the Spanish-style jamón, provided by the groom’s family, that was served during cocktail hour.

The understated color palette of white, greens, pale pink and peach, and with timeless hints of gold, perfectly complimented the spaces of the day, including the naturally beautiful and forested Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History as well as the Villa Doria Garden, with its white and green, stencil-accented exterior and lush gardens. The guest tables were adorned with arrangements of dahlias and roses, assorted candles and gold-tone tableware that all resulted in an exceptionally romantic feel.

As the sun set beyond the water, the twinkling lights throughout the yard made the evening even more magical. Not only were the settings spectacular, but the people truly made the day as beautiful as could be, as it was not only clear throughout the celebration how much Rachelle and Philip adore each other, but also how much their guests adore them.

Santa Barbara Mission Wedding, Spring 2016

Valerie and Cesar’s Santa Barbara Mission wedding was one of the most emotionally beautiful, and poignant unions I have witnessed in a long time.  Their’s is a story of true love peppered by trials and successes from the beginning – making them both stronger as individuals, and as a couple, every time.  When we met for the their engagement session, we turned it into a 3 hour tour de Santa Barbara stopping at both old and new, iconic locations along the way. We just couldn’t stop, we were having such a great time and getting so many beautiful images!  Their story was written up in the New York Times and you can read the article HERE.

El Presidio Wedding in Santa Barbara, CA | January 2nd, 2016

 

Kristina & Joseph chose to have a beautiful El Presidio wedding on the second day of 2016.  There was so much “Santa Barbara” packed into this Spanish/Mexican styled wedding.  The Presidio Chapel is furnished as it would have been in the late 18th century.  The whitewashed walls are punctuated by paintings and candle sconces, and the altar is dressed with a spectacular reredos (altar piece),    altar frontal, and candlesticks. Period santos fill the niches. The interior   walls and altar rail are painted to represent marble or tapestry. A small balcony overhanging the interior front of the building adds charm and utility and can be used to house vendors such as musicians or photographers. The acoustics are ideal for any genre of music, overall making this the perfect place for all of life’s special celebrations and events.
