Spring is a wonderful time of year, bursting with the vibrant colors and sunshine every which way you turn. Which makes for one amazing time to say “I do,” especially in the land of pretty, Santa Barbara. So, a Spring inspiration shoot at The University Club of Santa Barbara? Pretty much the best idea ever, particularly when planned to perfection by Alegria by Design and layered with beautiful blooms from LouLoudi Design, a stunning gown from La Soie Bridal and soft peach, pink and purple hues. See all of the pretty captured by Linda Chaja Photography right here.
From Armando Martinez from Alegria by Design… Spring entertaining in Santa Barbara was the inspiration for our “Spring in Bloom” photo shoot… approaching the wedding reception as you would a dinner party. Mixing personal or found objects, incorporating personal style and utilizing the amazing outdoor spaces the University Club of Santa Barbara offers up. Casual elegance and sophistication defines Santa Barbara style… coupled with the amazing floral work of Michael Mantalos of LouLoudi Designs.
The Santa Barbara spring bride… romantic, elegant and quietly confident. Very sure of her fashion choices, pairing heavy layered jewelry courtesy of Coast to Coast collection with a tradition lace gown from La Soie Bridal and tousled hair with dramatic makeup by Luna Bells Make Up Artists. Again, the casual elegance and sophistication that defines Santa Barbara style!
