Emme & Sam’s Wedding Weekend Part 2: The Wedding Day


Emme and Sam’s destination wedding was at the Ritz Carlton Bacara. Picture-perfect views of Santa Barbara’s coastline provided the backdrop for their special day, where elegance seamlessly blended with tropical charm. Join me as we delve into the captivating moments and design details that made their celebration unforgettable.


Getting Ready

The morning sun warmed the air as Emme and her bridal party prepared for the joyous day ahead. Dressed in an array of beautiful verdant greens, they embraced a fresh and radiant aesthetic. Vibrant bursts of pink and orange florals added a touch of tropical flair, infusing their ensemble with a playful yet elegant vibe. Laughter and shared moments made the getting ready process even more memorable, a time of bonding and excitement.



The Ceremony

With the vast expanse of the ocean and the breathtaking Santa Barbara coastline as their backdrop, Emme and Sam exchanged vows atop scenic bluffs. The arch was covered with tropical greenery and striking pink and orange florals. The back of the aisle was also lined with tropical greenery.




Cocktail Hour

Following the ceremony, guests were invited to a terrace that offered crystal clear ocean views. Light blue linens adorned the tables, while tropical floral arrangements added pops of vibrant color. Amidst this oasis, guests sipped crafted cocktails and indulged in delectable appetizers. Guests found their table numbers on hand-painted pieces of blue sea glass, reminiscent of treasures waiting to be found.




As the sun began its descent, casting a golden glow over the reception space, Emme and Sam’s guests were welcomed to an enchanting blend of elegance and tropical paradise. Crisp white linens provided a clean canvas for the stunning tropical florals, alive with vibrant hues. Classic gold table settings added a touch of refinement, while unique turquoise chargers offered a  burst of color.
