Does it get any better than classic elegance in Santa Barbara?  When you add dreamy and dazzling images from Desi Baytan Photography into the mix you get pretty close to perfection in my book.  Smitten doesn’t even began to describe how I feel when I gaze at the creamy garden roses, gold scalloped china and the sweetest of details tucked into every corner.  It is pure romance through and through and I’ve found myself quite enamored.  See it all in the full gallery!

From Desi of Desi Baytan PhotographyAn honor as always to work with Katy Carrier again on this most gorgeous wedding. Along with Erica Espana, they made this wedding absolutely elegant, chic, and stylish. The wedding of Lisa and Alan Jackson took place at the Santa Barbara Courthouse Mural Room and reception at the Montecito Country Club. A palette of aqua and yellow and a sundry of scrumptious ornamental designs drizzled all over makes this wedding like an inviting luscious dessert. How apropos it was for two prosecutors to tie the knot at the famous Mural Room of Santa Barbara’s historic courthouse. Its ornate cathedral-like ceiling and gold leafing makes for a historical ceremonial place. Next we go to the Montecito Country Club for a dazzling reception room with elegant chandeliers, distressed floors and with an amazing view of the vast acreage of the club. The escort cards display was not only original but ornate and each card was hand written by calligrapher Bonnie Nelson.

At the head table is a display of opulence. The arrangement from the florals and elegant jeweled candle holders complements the symmetric shape of the banquet hall. All this is not only a feast for the eyes, but for your sense of touch as well. Notice the aqua linen table cover’s lovely paisley pattern? Brought to you by La Tavola Linens.  All is accentuated by light yellow floral arrangements by Cody Floral Design that is balanced and not over powering. Katy, along with Erica, made this lovely affair a night to remember.
