The El Encanto is one of the most breathtaking locations to hold a wedding. With their incredibly unique ceremony garden which surrounds the lily pond, the photo opportunities are endless, and the views of Santa Barbara are spectacular. Its no wonder our bride Kimberly fell in love with it when we first toured the property (with hard hats) before the hotel had officially re-opened!
Kimberly and Paul planned their modern wedding at the El Encanto all the way from Korea! We actually only met with Paul once & Kimberly twice. They had simple and sophisticated taste, and really wanted to incorporate lots of water elements along with the texture of fish scales. All of the paper products and invitations were custom designed and each one was handmade by the Groom (aside from the lazer cutting which was done in Korea). The textures of the linens brought in the fish-scale patterns and textures and the unique floral arrangements from NLC Productions tied everything together perfectly. We also had a lot of fun creating the water table filled with gold fish for the escort card display! The day was beautifully captured by the talented Ashleigh Taylor Photography who never disappoints!
