Oceanfront Bliss at the DoubleTree 150 150 La Fete Weddings

Oceanfront Bliss at the DoubleTree

I love it when couples trust us and go with some of the ideas we come up with from the design and colors to the intimate details.  JJ and Joe were so fun to work with~
On this wedding we started with wanting to bring the color of the Pacific Ocean into the plaza at the Fess Parkers Doubletree.  We chose a beautiful teal blue colored linen with two different elegant textures and iridescence. The mocha fabric overhead added the soft romantic feeling and provided some shade for the guests from the Summer sun. After dark the rod iron candle chandeliers were the perfect touch.
JJ and Joe met at a club downtown, and so we decided how fun it would be to put the whole wedding party and their dates/spouses at a bar height table with stools.  The flowers were to be romantic and fluffy with gardenia’s one of JJ’s favorite flowers.  The Church Our Lady of  Mt. Carmel was the perfect setting for their intimate ceremony.
The McCleod tartan is yellow, black with a touch of red~ so with JJ being a school teacher we decided how fun it would be to do escort/favors with the double stick tape, which had exactly their McCleod tartan pattern on it, This design was used on their programs and grooms and groomsmen’s ties and pocket squares.  We also hired a bagpiper to play at the end of the recessional for them.

They danced and had the best night ever on the perfect Summer night in the Plaza in Santa Barbara.
