Charlene and Rick were married at the Belmond El Encanto in Santa Barbara, California. Like most couples getting married during the pandemic, our plans shifted drastically throughout the process - we originally planned a ballroom indoor wedding for them, but then decided to move everything outdoors - and I’m so glad we did!
The ceremony took place around the Lily Pond. We created a Wisteria installation with hanging delphinium, larkspur, and dendrobium orchids, while tropical blooms lined the aisle.
As the guests enjoyed cocktail hour with sunset coastal views on the Terrace, we flipped the ceremony space to create a classic, timeless, elegant all-white dinner reception around the Lily Pond. From the black and white calligraphy, to the white wax seals on the escort cards, the all-white linens and china to the all-white tropical-inspired blooms, it was a beautiful evening!
