As a destination wedding planner, I’ve had the privilege of orchestrating countless unforgettable celebrations. But Victoria and Faben’s autumn wedding at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum was a true masterpiece: this destination event seamlessly blended timeless elegance with modern luxury, creating an experience that was both romantic and unforgettable.
The Santa Barbara Historical Museum provided a picturesque backdrop. Abundant florals graced the ceremony space, with flowers cascading down the aisle and a breathtaking arch framing the couple as they exchanged their vows. The floral arrangements were a stunning blend of seasonal blooms, adding warmth and color to the fall day.
Victoria and Faben’s love story had a unique twist—both of them are chemists. To honor their profession and love for science, we crafted a chemistry-inspired seating chart that was as creative as it was personal. The guest names were painted on beakers and filled with flowers.
The reception was one of my favorites to-date, with velvet linens, black china, smoky glassware, black half-circle menus, and black basket lanterns hanging over the tables. The dark and moody color palette created an intimate atmosphere, perfectly suited for an autumn evening.
One of the most memorable moments of the evening was when Victoria changed into a stunning green dress to cut the cake. We are loving the trend of brides changing outfits, especially to non-white dresses once the party has started.
Victoria and Faben’s wedding at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum was a true reflection of their personalities and love story. It was modern, luxe, and, above all, memorable. Every element of the day was thoughtfully chosen to create an atmosphere that was both romantic and refined.
It’s weddings like these that remind me why I’m passionate about what I do, and I’m grateful to have played a part in making Victoria and Faben’s dream day a reality. Here’s to a lifetime of happiness for this amazing couple.

Me and my team intentionally create bespoke celebrations for life milestones that inspire resounding joy, awe-inspiring beauty, and a deep sense of belonging and connection
I firmly believe in the beauty of carefully executed restraint, allowing the natural beauty of the venue, flowers, design details, and clients speak for themselves.
I look forward to creating something beautiful with you.
From hanging installations above dinner tables in a tent to small details and candlelight in a powder room, our floral production allows us to bring to life exactly what we’ve dreamt up together through the design process, leaving you with peace of mind before the big day and that feeling of awe come wedding day.
