If a bounty of bridesmaids in a pretty, neutral palette, groomsmen in pink bow ties and festivities surrounded by the beauty of San Ysidro Ranch doesn’t peak your interest then surely church pews from Found Rentals decorating the ceremony spot will do the trick. This is one incredibly good looking wedding crafted by Twine Events and Bunch Studio, with the sweetest moments to match captured by Patrick Moyer. See all that combined into one lovely gallery right here.
You can’t go wrong at San Ysidro Ranch. The setting and atmosphere the Ranch provides is organic, timeless, and romantic. Rebecca and David wanted to play off the natural elements with a birch canopy, garden style flowers, striped and neutral linens, market lighting for dancing, and acoustic music for the day.
The couple kept it summer fresh with the wedding party attire, light grey suits and pink bow ties for the gentlemen and champagne chiffon dresses for the ladies. The couple and wedding party belonged in a magazine, effortless and gorgeous!
The best part was the couple paid homage to both of their religious backgrounds in the ceremony. The church pews to signify her Catholic upbringing and chuppa to honor the groom’s Jewish background. During the ceremony, they incorporated both traditions as well with a giving of a rose to significant family members, wine ritual, and breaking of the glass. This is what a wedding is all about, honoring and celebrating one another and your families! Rebecca and David did it perfectly.
From the Bride… David and i had mutual friends from college, but we had never met in person. I stumbled across his profile on facebook (some would call it cyberstalking), thought he was cute, and knew we had to meet. We had a lot in common. We both were living in Venice and were originally from New Jersey. Eventually, he sent me a message asking me out. I had never met anyone off the internet before so was apprehensive, but agreed to it anyway. We met in front of a bar on Abbot Kinney and walked around the neighborhood talking all night. It was not awkward at all – in fact, it was as though we’d known each other for years. And it’s has been smooth sailing ever since that night!
I have always gone up to SB on day trips since moving to Los Angeles seven years ago. Santa Barbara reminded me of Europe but with better weather and only an hour and a half away! I had always wanted a small, outdoor wedding, and my heart was set on San Ysidro Ranch. Santa Barbara was such an accessible place for all of our guests – so many diverse hotel options and such a close proximity from LA. When I first went to SYR I thought I had died and gone to heaven, but never thought I’d be able to get married there. When we figured out a way to make it happen, I was thrilled and knew it was the right place.
The whole wedding was a highlight! Everything was so meticulously smooth and the food and music were really special. I was particularly enamored with the vintage church pews, the flowers, David’s speech, and of course the great and emotionally supportive photographers. People say your wedding day is a big blur, and it definitely is. I can hardly remember small details, but i do know it was one big love fest.
