From the Bride… We envisioned our wedding to be modern, traditional and elegant. We chose the San Ysidro Ranch for it’s storied history, privacy, romantic, intimate and scenic location. Because only our immediate families were in attendance, we opted for a formal and elegant affair serenaded by an acoustic duo under the stars. We enjoyed a caviar and champagne cocktail hour, followed by a fine wine pairing and a five course dinner with accompaniment of amuse bouche and an intermezzo.

It was truly an affair to remember from the exchanging of our vows on the lower lawn, to the decadent sit-down dinner, chandeliers hanging from the branches above us creating a whimsical setting. The enchanting glow of the candles, lavish table settings, aromatic fragrance from the lush floral arraignments complimenting the aroma of the fine cuisine. Laughter coupled with the cheers and speeches and background music creating a magical evening to remember. We are exceedingly happy and pleased that our dreams were executed so flawlessly.

When you’re an animal lover and looking for a destination location, well the Santa Barbara Zoo is the destination to choose.

Vendors like SPARK Creative EventsFound Vintage Rentals and La Tavola brought the details together and Jose Villa blew us away, per usual, with images that’ll stop you dead in your tracks.

From Joy Proctor DesignJahnel and Hiro chose the historic San Ysidro Ranch for their wedding, surrounded by their closest friends and family. They exchanged vows under an oak with hanging chandeliers, with blankets for guests to get comfortable during the ceremony.

After being pronounced man and wife, they invited their guests to take a glass of champagne and take a group photo together before making their way to cocktail hour. Once the sun set, guests were invited into a beautiful candlelit cottage for dinner. Sitting on a loveseat in front of a roaring fireplace, the couple thanked they guests for coming.

Jahnel chose a color palette that highlighted the fall season with deep burgundies, browns and pops of gold and blush. The beautiful invitations were a beautiful gold foil with papers and calligraphy in the color palette. For flowers, rich reds, cremes and blushes were chosen in a beautiful array of garden varieties. Natural linen tablecloths ran down the long tables atop which stone chargers, candles and beautiful floral arrangements sat.
