If there was one single wedding that summed up the heart and soul of Style Me Pretty, this San Ysidro Ranch beauty might be just that. It’s an intimate garden affair layered with timeless design by Joy Proctor, soft florals from Kelly Kaufman, and those deeply beautiful moments captured by Kurt Boomer. No matter which way you slice it, this gallery is swoon-fest just waiting to happen.
From Joy Proctor Design… I had the pleasure of helping Corinna and Mark plan and design their intimate wedding at the historic San Ysidro Ranch in Santa Barbara, California. Nestled in the Santa Barbara foothills, the stunning ranch has been home to some of the most special guests including JFK and Jackie O, who honeymooned there.
It was important to Corinna and Mark to keep their wedding small, intimate and thoughtful. Their guests were greeted with champagne served in gold rimmed flutes and bocce ball before the ceremony. The grooms brother officiated as the couple exchanged their vows amongst their closest friends and family, who tossed lavender once they were married. Beautiful linen lounge furniture and a garland draped bar created an intimate cocktail hour in the garden, before guests made their way to dinner outside the wine cellar.
Seating assignments on handmade paper hung from a garden gate, helping guests find their seats. Chandeliers dripping with ivy hung from the trees above a 24′ dinner table, set in front of a beautiful stone fireplace. The wooden table was filled with lush floral centerpieces and candle light, truly creating an intimate yet elegant al fresco environment. After dinner, guests made their way inside the wine cellar for dancing and cake.
