Amy and Michael were married at her family estate where she grew up in Santa Barbara. Amy and Michael currently reside in London, where Amy is an executive for Lululemon and Michael is a professional golfer. They (and several of their guests) traversed across the atlantic to celebrate their Santa Barbara nuptials!
Amy and Michael had a quirky, fun, beautiful wedding in Santa Barbara, California. Amy, a Santa Barbara Native, currently resides in London and works for Lululemon and Michael is a professional golfer from England. They met in Amsterdam, got engaged in Paris, and currently reside in London. Their vibrant, fun personalities and passionate love for each other is contagious! To celebrate their wedding, Amy and Michael wanted an intimate, memorable celebration combining their British and American heritages. They had a multi-location wedding celebration, with the ceremony held at the Douglas Family Preserve overlooking the ocean, and a reception held at Amy’s childhood estate in Santa Barbara. Retro school buses transported guests between locations. Featuring bright, cheerful shades of orange (representing Holland, where they met) and varying shades of blue and turquoise (representing the Santa Barbara Sea) intermixed with muted classic tones, we wanted to encapsulate traditional British elegance with the vibrant, care-free California spirit. Amy and her bridesmaids completed several DIY elements to make their big day extra special.
Michael proposed in Paris on the Pont des Arts, so naturally, Amy travelled to Paris to get an exquisite wedding gown! Her bridesmaids wore turquoise dresses from several different designers.
The ceremony was held at the Douglas Family Preserve overlooking the ocean. In stead of a traditional altar and seating, guests sat on fallen logs covered in lace and flowers. The ceremony focal point was a fallen log that was used as an altar.
Following the ceremony, guests were transported back to the estate for dinner, drinks, and dancing (and a caricature artist!).
