After completing their first day of orientation at USC a large group of classmates decided to go out to happy hour and this is when Brian had the pleasure of sitting across from Courtney. The two quickly became good friends, and after a year of Brian trying to win Courtney over, the perfect opportunity fell into his lap! Their group of friends had all planned to go to a John Butler Trio concert, although someone had mistakenly purchased two tickets to the wrong night. As fate would have it, both Courtney & Brian ended up sacrificing their tickets for the other friends to go to the concert. That led to their pseudo first date and then two days later their official first date- and the rest is history!

When we began planning the wedding with Courtney & her mother we started by searching for wedding venues. They knew we had found the right place when we walked onto the grounds of the spectacular Villa Sevillano. With magnificently manicured grounds and formal terraced gardens, this impressive 6-bedroom Italian Villa was the perfect place to transform into their dream wedding.

The wedding ceremony was held at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel church in the heart of Montecito at 2:00 in the afternoon. After the full Catholic mass the guests arrived at the Villa for an intentionally “long-cocktail-hour!” We created a plush environment around the pool with charcoal grey lounge furniture groupings, tall communal dining tables & multiple bars and food stations! Good Gracious! catered a “Meat Lovers” station for the groom and a “New Orleans” food station for the bride- complete with frozen hurricanes and gumbo!  Guests mingled and enjoyed the music of the New Orleans style Dixie band.

We designed a tailored fabric draped tent with ivory petal covered panels in the center of the ceiling. We filled in the tent withRevelry Event Designer’s stunning mirror & chandelier glass top tables, which were accented with their linen upholstered chairs.Eddie Zaratsian added a decadent mix of all white modern flowers in mirrored vessels along with a selection of rosebud-embellished votive candles.

The Band from West Coast Music blew the guests away with their incredible talents and at the end of the night we surprised the guests by passing out LED sunglasses, necklaces, bracelets & other fun props to keep their party on the dance floor all night long!

Alfresco Wedding at Villa Sevillano

Alfresco Wedding at Villa Sevillano 150 150 La Fete Weddings

Working with Meghan and Stan was such a joy!  She had a very distinct vision for her wedding day, and completely trusted us to make that dream come to life. After a few meetings with her we had her  wedding completely dialed in and she just needed to sit back and enjoy the process! When you hold a wedding at Villa Sevillano, the estate is so incredibly gorgeous already, you just have to work with the style of the home . Meghan LOVED burlap and white, and we had so much fun putting together all of the little details!

We brought in Tricia Fountaine to design the flower arrangements and she blew us away! Each arrangement was abundant and exactly the way we had envisioned them! Below is a shot of her stunning bouquet:

The worlds most adorable ring bearer assisted us by passing out fans to the guests before they sat down for the ceremony.

When it comes to food, Duo Catering knows what’s best. From signature drinks, to tray passed hors d’oeuvres, each bite is always delicious!

Absolutely gorgeous cake design made by Christine Dahl to match the invitations that were sent out.

These beautiful photos were taken by the talented Stephanie Hogue. Thank you for always capturing every little detail for us and making our brides and grooms look so stunning! LBPS created custom fabric draped cabanas for the lounges on either side of the dance floor which added so much drama to the space. We could not have done this event without the gorgeous rentals from Town and Country, your team is always so helpful and make each event so unique and beautiful!  And a big thank you to Stellar Groove and Dwight Kennedy Productions for keeping that dance floor packed all night!

Villa Sevillano Wedding

Melissa and Jon chose something completely different for their wedding. They wanted a small intimate dinner party for a select few guests, and to really make it special for those people! They selected Villa Sevillano as their reception venue and also spent a few nights in the home. Because they chose and smaller guest count of about 56 people we were able to utilize the indoor space for their reception. We brought in two incredible long wood tables and dressed them in silver runners and Camilla Svensson Burns provided the stunning flowers! Melissa Musgrove captured this day so beautifully, we always love her work!

We are seriously IN LOVE with her bouquet!

After the ceremony the guests enjoyed cocktail hour around the pool outside. The couple loved the fact that Villa Sevillano had so many olive trees they decided to do an olive oil tasting during the cocktail hour. With a large selection of olive oils and  flavored balsamic vinegars for their guests to taste on display, they could then bottle their favorite flavors to take home! Such a fun and interactive idea for this venue.

 

As we welcomed the guests into the dining room for dinner, they each found a hand calligraphed envelope with their individual names on the outside. Inside was a sweet thank you note from the bride and groom thanking them specifically for being at their wedding and how much it meant to have each person there. This was an incredible touch for an intimate party, and everyone felt so loved and appreciated.
Once the guests had settled into their seats, the 7 course dinner began. Duo Catering provided the guests with a feast they could never forget. Each dish was perfectly paired with a special glass of wine. Here I have shown a sampling of a few of the courses.
After dinner the guests cozied up under the heaters on the outside terrace to enjoy coffee, cake and other mini desserts, then the party moved downstairs where they danced the night away with the DJ. The event was an incredible success and the bride and groom could not have been more thrilled with the way their wedding day unfolded. We loved working with Melissa and Jon and wish them a lifetime of love and happiness.
