A Gorgeous Berry Color Palette for a Luxe Ranch Wedding

Leave it to Joel Serrato to photograph one of the most striking weddings I’ve come across in quite a long time. No surprise, the equally amazing Smith + James Events was behind the planning and design, playing up the beauty of Santa Barbara in a serious way. There’s no question, Christine and Joshua’s berry-hued love affair is worth every last second spent in the gallery.

From Tory Smith of smith + james events… Christine was an amazing bride who put a lot of trust in us to make her wedding day beautiful. Her one request? She wanted color – which we were thrilled to hear! At smith + james, we approach every wedding we design by first taking into account the venue and its surroundings. It’s important that all the details make sense within the environment and don’t feel forced or out of place.

The San Ysidro Ranch is a warm and inviting hotel set among the lush, Mediterranean-inspired Santa Barbara landscape. This setting played a major role in our inspiration and we ended up going for a refined yet organic feel. Santa Barbara is a town of unpretentious luxury, and we wanted to bring that vibe to the decor. We went with textural, elegant florals in vessels of wood and glazed terra cotta evocative of the area. We were really happy with the way the whole day came together and even more thrilled to have been a part of Christine and Josh’s love story.

Chic All-White Wedding at the Four Seasons

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.

From the Photographer… It didn’t take long after Heather and Peter met to fall in love. They both knew right away they had found the one they were meant to be with. After a year of many exciting adventures together, they took a trip to Big Sur & Carmel where Peter popped the question! The rest was history and the wedding planning quickly begun. They knew they wanted to get married in Santa Barbara (one of their favorite getaway spots) which would also be a wonderful holiday destination for their families traveling from New York and the Mid-West in the late fall. They had originally thought about a vineyard wedding but the moment they walked into El Encanto, they knew it was the place for them. It was the perfect balance of romance and elegance that they wanted for their wedding day. After that decision was made, they spent much time picking out the perfect designs, colors and various wedding details, but the most incredible part of the day had nothing to do with any of that- it was saying their vows and relishing in the moment they became husband & wife. The day was filled with so much love and many, many happy tears. A perfect Thanksgiving weekend to celebrate how truly grateful they are for one another!
