Timeless, Elegant Wedding with Abundant Flowers, Chandelier Installation, Soft Blue Color Palette, & Sweeping Ocean Views at Private Santa Barbara Estate
With Pantone's official color of the year being blue, I think it's appropriate to share the images from this beautiful wedding at a private estate in Santa Barbara, California. Savannah + Matt had a beautiful celebration celebrating their nuptials at Savannah's parents' home. The design and creation of this wedding was quite the feat - Savannah's parents had tons of dirt brought in to level the back yard so that all 300+ guests could have a spectacular ocean view during dinner. From when I first saw the space (and saw a sloped grassy hill) until the moment the project was completed, we designed the entire wedding based on sketches and what the final landscaping projected was projected to look like. The landscaping project finished just days before the wedding, but it all came together beautifully!
Savannah wore a stunning custom Galia Lahov gown, and she and Matt celebrated their vows overlooking the Santa Barbara mountains. Me and my team created a low-lying, half-circle floral arrangement to frame them during the ring ceremony, and we also had florals lining the back of the chairs. A custom wooden aisle was brought in to anchor the space.
After the ceremony, guests went to the back yard where we transformed the space with chandeliers, hanging greenery, flowers on the trees, and beautiful table settings. The tables had crisp white china, gold flatware, crystal glassware, blue velvet linens, and custom-dyed table runners from Tono + Co. We created a stunning deconstructed arch of flowers behind the sweetheart table. One of my favorite parts of the day was the grand piano (with the sweeping ocean view behind it). Savannah and Matt are musicians, so there was a wonderful performance during the dinner where they (and some of their friends/family) performed. As a piano player myself, I'll never forget the silhouette of the grand piano against the sunset, under a romantic canopy of greenery and chandeliers!
