With Pantone’s official color of 2017, it only seems appropriate to feature Mia + Drew’s Wedding on the blog this January. I absolutely loved working with Mia + Drew to create an organic, fun, laid-back celebration of their love and commitment to each other. Mia is a professional dancer and Drew is a professional skier, and they wanted their wedding day to encapsulate their love of the outdoors and love for each other. Their joy and their love for each other permeated through the entire weekend of festivities – I was honored to be a part of this celebration!
Mia + Drew were married at a Private Greenhouse on the Gaviota Coast. Several of the guests camped out on the property for the weekend and enjoyed surfing along the beautiful Santa Barbara coastline.
For their ceremony overlooking the ocean, we used reclaimed wood benches, lush green plants, driftwood, and created an arch using textured greenery and air plants. After they said their vows, guests enjoyed a beautiful reception in the large greenhouse, featuring lots of organic textures, varieties of greenery, and varying shades of wood. Mia’s family brought in lots of quintessential Santa Barbara favors, including retro Santa Barbara postcards and confetti eggs for guests to enjoy. During dinner, guests were entertained by a flamenco dance troupe, and there was a surprise flash mob later in the evening, featuring confetti canons and several professional dancers! It was definitely an evening I will never forget.
