This sweet Parisian Vintage Wedding was featured in The Knot magazine. This adorable couple wanted to create a ” Midnight in Paris” vibe for their guests at Santa Barbara Historical . I love all the personal touches that was put into this wedding. From Blue Magnolia’s Vintage Hotel Key holder transformed into their escort card display, the Grooms favorite Soccer team’s pin was added to the groomsmen Boutonnieres and the loose family style tables & decor created for their guests.
I had the great pleasure to be asked to work with Reverie magazine from London and Jen Huang / photographer for the Spring issue . Shot at the El Encanto , on the riviera in Santa Barbara. The hotel had just re-opened the week that we were shooting…it is stunning and as glamours as I remembered it years ago.
As well as some amazing images that Jen & Kate shared.
Also a very special THANK YOU to the adorable couples – YES they are REAL couples that were selected . Enjoy!
Megan and Brian Sharp, an artist and a teacher, were married October 9th, 2010 at Our Lady of Sorrows Church in Santa Barbara followed by a reception at Santa Barbara Historical Museum. Both Santa Barbara locals, their wedding design was inspired by their favorite things about their hometown, as well as the couple’s recent trip to Granada, Spain. A palette of terra cotta, green and purples played off the old mission style of the site and the succulent-dominated floral design.
Megan found the bridesmaid dresses, custom invitation designer and calligrapher via Etsy. The letterpressed invitations incorporated Spanish tile designs. Guests sat down to rustic tables with large platters of crusty breads, honey, figs and almonds, followed by paella (the groom’s favorite dish) and filet mignon.
The bride surprised the groom with a cigar and scotch bar — a big hit! Guests danced the night away to a 12 piece band (Soul City Survivors). The couple honeymooned in Carmel.
