Intimate Spring Wedding in Downtown Santa Barbara


Rhiannon and Josh were married at Villa and Vine in downtown Santa Barbara.  Their intimate celebration for their closest family and friends was so romantic.  I loved the pastel floral arrangements, the romantic gold hand-lettered calligraphy details on hand-torn paper (by Jessica Yee Calligraphy), and Rhiannon’s Claire Pettibone gown (and floral veil!).

Rhiannon got ready at the Rosewood Miramar Hotel in Montecito.  I love how her dress wasn’t pure white – the gray and blush tones in the gown were absolutely stunning.  I created a bouquet for her with spring blooms in blushes, lilacs, creams, and soft blues.  Josh wore a powder blue suit with a spring boutonniere.  Their unique, fun wedding fashion choices shaped and inspired the design for the rest of the wedding day.  

They said their vows in a small Mediterranean courtyard in downtown Santa Barbara.  Me and my team created a whimsical ceremony archwith hundreds of stems of flowers to create a growing “vine” of “growing” flowers over the ceremony space.  We put taper candles on the ground around the bride and groom to frame them during the ceremony.

The guests enjoyed a family-style dinner at long tables adorned with white taper candles, romantic spring flower garlands, and hand-lettered calligraphy details.  It was an intimate spring evening with beautiful pastel details.
