Glamorous + Romantic Wedding Inspiration at The Villa Sevillano

Friend to friend, I feel I can let you in on a little secret… I struggle on Tuesdays. Week after week without fail, I suffer from the terrible Tuesday blues but today is special; I’ve come upon the ultimate solution and it goes by the name Sally Pinera. One glance at this glam shoot and I guarantee you’ll agree; she’s absolute magic behind the lens. Crafted by Poppy Design Co., these pics have put a permanent smile on my face and for that, I’m forever grateful. Make your Tuesday shine so much brighter right this way!


From Sally Pinera… For this gorgeous, luxe and sultry shoot we chose The Villa Sevillano in Santa Barbara as our backdrop. The Villa featured gorgeous architecture and gardens filled with lush greens. Poppy Design Co. designed the tablescape with beautiful dark plums, muddy purples, concords, greens, and creams to create drama. Elegant pieces from The Ark was used to lavish our tabletop. Our model, Breann wore the amazing Galia Lahav gown for the ultimate elegance. This would surely be an amazing inspiration for the bold and daring bride!

Elegant Spring Austin Wedding

Al fresco fetes own my heart during the spring and summer months. Grass sweeping your heels, late evening toasts kissed by the sun and warm breezes wrapping you in love—they’re my jam. And Jenna McElroy is delivering just that today with these backyard beautiful I do’s. I know, right? I had to double take when I read ‘backyard’, but it’s true. With the help of Lisa CoffmanMarquee Event Group and Lee Warth, this private residence was turned intro a straight up love lounge. There’s more this way!


From The Bride…Garrett and I were fortunate enough not only to have the wedding of our dreams, but also to be able to have it in Garrett’s backyard. As we started wedding planning and researching venues, we quickly realized that nothing could beat a backyard reception. Our goal was to create an environment that felt secluded, tucked away, almost enchanted, even though we were set in the middle of the Texas Hill Country. What we were able to create over the next few months, after a lot of help from both of our parents, as well as a little makeover to the yard and a few large tents, far exceeded both Garrett and I’s expectations. With the guidance of an outstanding wedding planner and amazing vendors we were able to spend our perfect wedding night celebrating our new life together with our closest family and friends.
