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.
