A Cheery + Colorful Wedding Celebration at the San Ysidro Ranch

There is nothing like a  colorful wedding at the San Ysidro Ranch to help get you through your Wednesday! We were beyond thrilled to help the FABULOUS Laura of Cody Floral Design plan her own stunning and intimate wedding celebration. As  a local wedding professional, Laura arranges some of the most glamorous floral arrangements that Santa Barbara offers- but we all get a little tired of the traditional wedding colors of whites and soft pinks. That is exactly why her own wedding featured tons of vibrant blooms and touches of color!

Laura & Michael exchanged vows in front of the insanely romantic Stonehouse Terrace fireplace which was dressed in wild greenery and two abundant displays of her flowers! The backdrop was complete once all of the candles were lit & tiny twinkle lights lit up the fireplace & surrounding trees. Throughout the grounds of San Ysidro Ranch you will find tons of petite vintage benches- which we utilized as the seating for their guests during the ceremony.

At dusk, the guests found their way into the Old Adobe where they each took their seats at this deep blue velvet draped table. Each place setting held a perfect magenta peony which held together a silk napkin. And lets just say that the bride knew what she was doing when she put together these centerpieces!

These abundant arrangements featured a stunning color palette of deep fuchsia peonies, garden roses, cafe au let dahlias & dripping clusters of grapes. The table also featured an impressive display of hurricanes and votives which made the space feel warm & inviting!

 

Needless to say it was an incredible honor to be included in helping our dear friend Laura plan her special day! She has gone above and beyond to help design all of the flower arrangements for each of my kid’s weddings & it was about time we were able to return the favor! This magical day would not have been possible without the support of the wonderful professional team that came along side Laura & Michael that day:

Los Angeles Wedding Videographer- Artisan Productions

As a coordinator- so much thought, time and energy is put into planning & designing our weddings and the day itself goes by so quickly. We turn all of our hope & trust over to the photographers & videographers on the day of & pray that they capture the magic that transpires… and then, we wait. We wait for the day that the photographers sends us the photos and spend half a day sorting through our favorites. We also wait for the day when the videographer sends us their final edit of the wedding film and we smile & laugh as we re-live the happiest day of our clients lives. Well this wedding film was no exception & Artisan Productions NEVER disappoints!

Open this video in full screen, turn the volume up & enjoy this beautiful work of art that Aaron captured of Nicole & Walker’s Wedding Day:

Jenna Reeves + Tim Lopez’s Rehearsal Dinner

 When we are working with our clients on the overall design of their weddings, we are often limited to the color schemes and vision of our brides & grooms.  So when we were given the opportunity to plan something for our own family wedding- we opted for COLOR! Jenna Reeves + Tim Lopez’s Rehearsal Dinner was held at the space that runs along the side of Duo’s catering kitchen- also known as “The Alley.” They chose Duo Catering to create their fantastic dinner menu and they both fell in love with the idea of a long table running down the alley with nothing but the raw concrete walls as a backdrop! We started our design process after meeting Gretchen of Otis & Pearl– an exquisite vintage tableware rental company- and we knew we needed to use her cut crystal stemware and white & gold collection of mismatched vintage plates! From there, we decided to use deep wedgwood blue linens & napkins from La Tavola, and to top it all off with super bright sunset toned flower arrangements from Louloudi Designs. We were also thrilled that we would be able to use taper candles since that is a luxury we typically do not have in Santa Barbara. We teamed up with Town and Country Rentals to section off The Alley with their Edison Slatted Wood Walls and finished the look with their Edison rusty steel chairs! Our dear friend Melissa Musgrove dedicated her Friday evening to taking these stunning photos of the design for us as well as capturing some really beautiful memories of the emotional toasts and overwhelming joy that filled that space!

Rustic Barn Rehearsal Dinner

When we began planning the wedding for our clients Alex and Alyssa, we started by touring their property and listening to their vision. Then we ventured down into the barn… It was truly love at first site, and we knew we needed to throw Alex and Alyssa a rustic barn themed rehearsal dinner. Some spaces just speak to you, and this was one of them. Complete with 3 giant wrought iron chandeliers running down the center of the barn and stunning corrals & fixtures- we were dying to dress this place up! We introduced the clients to these darling distressed farm tables at Town & Country then chose a fun “bandana” patterned table runner from La Tavola. And to top it all off- Mindy Rice added so much cheer to the tables with her eclectic mix of sunflowers & rusty lanterns.

Each place setting was finished with a mini cowbell tied around the napkin (which the guests could ring throughout the evening) and these fabulous copper handled flatware from Town & Country Event Rentals!

This rustic barn rehearsal dinner was filled with toasts, laughter & tears and once the party had ended we shuttled these lucky guests down to The Wine Cask for a delightful welcome party with the rest of the invited wedding guests! A special thank your to our incredible team who made this night possible: Duo Catering, Images by Lighting, Town & Country Event Rentals, Mindy Rice, La Tavola Fine Linens, and photos by the talented Yvette Roman Photography.

The Perfect Post Wedding Brunch

The Santa Barbara Polo and Racquet Club is the perfect post wedding brunch location. The majority of our clients are choosing to host multiple events for their wedding throughout the weekend. Typically we begin with a welcome party, then the rehearsal dinner, the wedding day, followed by a Sunday brunch to send off the bride and groom. When our clients decide to host a full weekend of wedding activities we encourage them to show their guests the different areas that Santa Barbara has to offer. We love doing a rehearsal dinner at a local down town restaurant near historic State Street, and a welcome party at a hotel or somewhere with an ocean view! When it comes to the post wedding brunch, we like to suggest doing something unique…  and a polo brunch is so much fun for all ages! Hosting a brunch or private party here offers a new experience for your guests and is something most people have never done before. By creating a beautiful atmosphere and bringing in some delicious catered food (for this event we used Roomforty Catering) your guests are free to relax, drink a mimosa and enjoy the polo match. A special thank you to Willa Kveta for the gorgeous images of this event and to Jackson Durham for creating the stunning flower arrangements!
