Kristine and Corey loved everything about historic Santa Barbara. The red tile roofs, palm trees, the ocean views, the spanish architecture, and lots of succulents! And thats exactly how we knew they would LOVE the Fess Parker Resort for their wedding venue. We based our design around her favorite colors such as the different shades of sea foam green and terra-cotta. We were blown away by how beautiful everything came together. The flowers by Cody Floral Design were spectacular! BB Photography blew me away with these incredible photos (hence why this blog post is so long) We would also love to thank the following professionals for helping to create such a memorable day for Kristine and Corey:

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.

As a wedding planner, these are the kinds of clients that we live for. Carolyn and Dan were a dream to work with and their pictures say it all! They were the most adorable couple and they had SO MUCH FUN on their wedding day! Carolyn wanted her wedding day to reflect the beach feel of Santa Barbara but not to have a cheesy stereotypical “beachy flare” She chose a fabulous oceanfront location of the Four Seasons Santa Barbara, and allowed me to take control of the decor! I worked alongside with Camilla Svensson Burns who provided the fabulous floral arrangements to achieve this light and airy look in the La Pacifica Ballroom. BB Photography always does an amazing job capturing our clients and their joy really shows throughout all of his images.
West Coast Music packed the dance floor all night- and when the father of the bride couldn’t find space to dance there, he made his own dance floor between the tables!!
