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:

From the Bride… “We envisioned our wedding to be modern, traditional and elegant. We chose the San Ysidro Ranch for it’s storied history, privacy, romantic, intimate and scenic location. Because only our immediate families were in attendance, we opted for a formal and elegant affair serenaded by an acoustic duo under the stars. We enjoyed a caviar and champagne cocktail hour, followed by a fine wine pairing and a five course dinner with accompaniment of amuse bouche and an intermezzo.”

It was truly an affair to remember from the exchanging of our vows on the lower lawn, to the decadent sit-down dinner, chandeliers hanging from the branches above us creating a whimsical setting. The enchanting glow of the candles, lavish table settings, aromatic fragrance from the lush floral arraignments complimenting the aroma of the fine cuisine.”

New Years Wedding at San Ysidro Ranch

We are excited to share our first wedding from 2014! Here at La Fete Weddings we LOVE doing the large, beautiful and luxurious events, but we also get just as excited about the small & intimate weddings too! This couple from Texas was so wonderful to work with. Misti loved our designs online and said to us “Here are my colors, and I completely trust that you will make our wedding classic and beautiful for me!”  It was a New Years Wedding at San Ysidro Ranch, and the weather could not have been more perfect. It was a gorgeous sunny day for a wedding which took place in the Wine Cellar and the ceremony was held in the garden in front of the fireplace. This location is so warm and inviting, especially during this time of year.  Misti loved the combination of romantic red mixed with a touch of sparkle in the linens for the New Years wedding.

Misti’s daughters were a delight; it was such a precious moment to watch them walk her down the aisle to her groom, Michael. The gorgeous blooms were arranged by Amy of Ambient Event Design. Misti loved them so much she filled her cottage with them and enjoyed the arrangements for the rest of the week at the Ranch. Colette provided her own dishes and red glassware that were passed down by her grandmother to add a special and unique touch to the table top. We designed custom menus for each place setting with Barbara from Let’s Party.
Melissa Musgrove was the perfect photographer. She captured their love, joy, and all of the details that made that day so special for them. Thank you Melissa!
Shortly after the wedding we received a very nice email from the groom:
” I must admit I was a bit reluctant to hire you because the wedding was small in relation to head count. What I figured out through what you did with our wedding is that no matter how big or small. there is still a lot to pulling them off problem free. You did a wonderful job and it greatly helped with Misti’s stress load.”
