Heartstone Ranch Wedding
It does not get much better than a Heartstone Ranch wedding, especially when your bride and groom are absolutely adorable! I had the pleasure of helping Brittany and Ryan plan their big day and the wedding turned out so gorgeous. Brittany took on a lot of the DIY work and in the end we created an event that was spectacularly detailed and absolutely perfect. Heartstone Ranch is located in Carpinteria California and is a spectacular place to have a wedding. The grounds are very well kept and the photo opportunities are endless. The bride wore this stunning Vera Wang gown which fit her perfectly, and her bridesmaids wore navy knee-length dresses which popped with the color of the bouquets. Nick from Priscila Valentina captured every moment of this day with such a great eye for detail. Brittany decided to do a Quilt station in lieu of a guestbook, along with tiny jars of Heartstone Ranch honey and homemade jam for favors. To see more pictures from this wedding click here!
Spanish Colonial Inspired Wedding
When we began working with Christian and Amanda on the plans for their wedding, they started by showing us their Save the Date. Christian had found the most stunning cartouche that he used to border the card. We loved the design and began brainstorming about the different ways we could use that to brand their event. The cartouche was used throughout the invitations, programs, favors, menus, and table numbers. The spanish colonial inspired wedding was held in Christian’s parents backyard located in Montecito.
Over the course of 4 days we built a hardwood subfloor and canopy that completely transformed the space. We illuminated the dance floor with amber colored bulbs mixed with ivory papel picados which gently swayed in the breeze. We were very excited to be the first to use Town & Country Event Rentals’ new Encanto Rustic Chandeliers, which perfectly fit the theme. Roomforty customized a menu of spanish paella, short ribs, and a generous amount of beautifully presented hors d’oeuvres. Their attention to detail and innovative displays are what set them apart from other caterers!
Laura Sangas of Cody Floral Design never disappoints. She designed the vibrant and abundant flowers and mixed in some unique wrought iron pieces to indulge the Spanish theme. This was our first opportunity to work with Mi Belle Photography and it will certainly not be the last. Michelle was such a joy to work with and the images she captured of this event really blew us away.
Ambient Event Design helped to keep the party alive at night with stunning amber uplighting and dramatic fabric draping, and Stew and the Crew kept the guests dancing all night!
