Hadley + Gareth’s wedding weekend in Santa Barbara was so beautiful and so fun. We had the honor of working with them through two reschedules due to the pandemic, so when their guests were finally able to travel from all over the world to celebrate with the couple in Santa Barbara, it was such a fun weekend!
Perched on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the ceremony took place on a wood platform as guest sipped welcome beverages. A carpeted aisle meandered through low, lush florals, creating a pathway that was both elegant and unforgettable.
One of the most unique and personal touches of this wedding was the seating chart. Hadley and Gareth are avid travelers, and they wanted to incorporate their love for exploring new destinations into their special day. The result was a captivating wall showcasing some of their favorite places to travel, guiding guests to their designated tables with a touch of wanderlust.
Following the ceremony, guests were treated to a sumptuous dinner on the sprawling lawn, with unobstructed views of the ocean. The ambiance was understated and elegant, with tables adorned in simple yet refined decor.
As the sun dipped below the horizon, the guests danced the night away under a canopy of bistro lights, surrounded by the gentle rustle of the ocean waves below.
Hadley and Gareth’s wedding at the private estate in Santa Barbara was a true testament to the beauty of simplicity and the power of gathering with the people you love. Every aspect of the day was thoughtfully curated to create an atmosphere that was both refined and deeply personal.
In my role as a destination wedding planner, it’s weddings like these that remind me of the transformative power of bringing the people you love together and the importance of infusing personal touches into every detail. Hadley and Gareth’s wedding was an absolute joy to plan, and I’m honored to have been part of their journey.
