From the planner… Lindsay and Curt were clear on their wedding day goals from the beginning: a traditional Catholic ceremony, followed by a black-tie bash that was as elegant as it was playful and fun, which is not an easy balance to strike! Upon entering the courtyard at cocktail hour, guests were greeted with Caribbean-style steel drum music, an oyster bar, and free-flowing champagne. Following dinner, the festivities continued with more live music, and eschewing the traditional wedding cake, guests were treated to a giant wall of donuts and three different kinds of boozy milkshakes. In designing the reception space at the Flood Mansion, we drew on Lindsay’s love of antiques and Deco style (influences from her childhood in New England) as natural sources of inspiration. To highlight the opulent, classical style of the architectural elements and details at the Flood, we used a warm, neutral color palette of white, ivory, gold, and dark wood, with shades of blue as an accent color. Amanda Vidmar of Amanda Vidmar Design created lush, elegant, textural floral pieces in whites and greens, which complemented and softened the space. We were all especially smitten with Lindsay’s bridal bouquet, which featured garden roses, Lily of the Valley, hydrangea (another nod to East Coast roots), tulips, and jasmine vine, tied together with trailing blue and white velvet ribbon.

I’ve never seen a Santa Barbara wedding I didn’t love, so it’s no wonder Mary-Margaret and Beau chose it as the locale for their big day. The California sun made for stunning photos captured by Anna Delores Photography, and you better believe Wedding Kate had their nuptials perfectly planned from start to finish. If classic, timeless and chic are your thing, head right this way for even more to love.

From Anna Delores Photography… Mary-Margaret and Beau traveled from their native Texas to Santa Barbara to host family and friends for a fun-filled mid-autumn getaway. Their lavish wedding at the Four Seasons Biltmore Resort in Santa Barbara was expertly planned, designed, and coordinated by Katie Seefeldt of Wedding Kate, with stunning florals by Jaime of Casa Blanca Event Design. The couple’s all-white ceremony, covered in lovely white blooms, was held on the Monte Vista Lawn, and their reception in the La Pacifica Ballroom at the Four Seasons.
